Boy, its just unbelievable. Each person in the car has to be well trained as to how to maintain the weight balance. Hope they are not doing these on public roads.

The first question would be: how could someone tip the vehicle so that it runs on two wheel on a flat road?

This has been a very old "Hobby" out there.

I think they have reached the peak of pumping their adrenaline - Risking their life. However, the show is so smooth, I doubt it is a "risk" for them.

If you look at the video in the link provided, they are using a platform to go on 2 wheels.

No matter, how well exerienced these guys are, it is definitely risky. May not be life threatening as the speed is low, but no 4 wheeler is designed to go on 2 wheels, and there are numberous things that could go wrong in this kind of driving.

No point trying to simmer down the wild passion that Arabs are known to have for automobiles. The video is insane and I am not surprised.

Just for laughs:

That's for lighter vehicles. For heavier vehicles, and possibly those with more such experience, they go at a fast clip, and turn sharply enough that the vehicle starts to topple. At the right time, the driver will then straighten the steering wheel which when properly done, will take the vehicle on it's side, running on just one side wheels.

There are video's of this around, do check

I just can't help but think about the amount of stress that the suspension components, arms, axles, steering assembly, hubs etc. must be under when they do this!

Default Mini Cooper - World's first Backflip!

Daredevil Chicherit's Full Mini Backflip.

This is apparently the world's first known backflip done on a Mini Cooper Countryman.

It took Chicherit 4 years to plan the stunt, which involved him jumping the car, flipping it 360 degrees, then landing on a 8-meter high snow ramp in French ski resort, Tignes.

Enjoy the stunt video :

Thumbs up Bus driver faints off the wheel: Women passengers rope into action!



Quote:
The whole dramatic incident was captured by surveillance cameras on the bus near the town of Kiezmark, west of Gdansk.

The driver suddenly slumped to the left and then fell on the floor to the right of his seat when the bus subsequently veered across the road.

A female passenger was then heard to scream in Polish, "can anyone drive" as she grabbed the wheel and attempted to steer the bus safely to a halt.

Another woman helped her as the bus swerved from one side of the road to another, hitting a road sign, the barrier and a car travelling in the opposite direction.

A man also came forward to help and, after driving for about 500m, the driver regained consciousness and managed to apply the brake.
