2017 - The truck runs arena tour #6 along side it's new team mate Master of Disaster. Zane and the truck are invited to compete in the Double Down Showdown at the World Finals. Later that year, the team removed the custom rear tail plug with a normal Ford Raptor cab due to the tail being difficult to continuously make.
