What shows besides BCA and Butler carry the Nitro? I saw a photo of one at the 2014 San Antonio LSR.

Butler no longer owns a Nitro, they replaced it with a Freak Out (brand new for 2014). They sold the Nitro to Happy World whom booked it into San Antonio with Wade.

The Nitro is a nightmare to move according to my friend who moved BCA's for several years. Said there is a ridiculous amount of bolts and heavy pieces.

Didn't the Nitro have a potential issue with walking off blocking?
Also, in videos I've seen of it, it never seemed to swing more then 180 degrees (90 degrees each direction or parallel to the ground)?
Is that related to the walking?

I was told by a few guys at BCA that they sold theirs.

They still always booked Myers with a Freakout when the Nitro was there.

From what I heard, the price was right when BCA purchased the Nitro from Bluegrass.
