As you said the initial momentum should be what keeps the car running here...
Not sure of any special setup though....

Probably its a car thats specially kitted out for only rotating the left wheel! On a more serious note, when he is on 2 wheels, even very light brake inputs(which the driver might use to control the car in that situation) would be enough to stop the wheels in the air because they would not have much inertia as the load of the vehicle is not on them.
Did you see such a video on the net somewhere? In which case, could you provide a link? Cheers.

It would help if you posted the video you were talking about...
Also, if the front wheel is not driven, it will freewheel itself to a stop and this will most probably be the only wheel that is not rotating.
eg. @85seconds in this

I did a serach on You tube for such videos & here the list
YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
Check out this one 16 cars on two wheels
Not much is vible of the tire in sky but at exactly 3.05 secs you can see the stopped wheel of a white car(a renault I think)
I dont think there is any camera trick since its a Guiness record attempt
The wheel I belive are moving in this vdo

this is from Wikipedia... It seems that LSD does not allow to increse the speed difference beyond a set limit.. so it means.. Both wheels will spin.... right???
IMHO it is possible if the driveshaft to one wheel was disengaged and the differential locked... Torque steer balanced by Steering inputs..
Or driving after having LSD-Lysergic acid diethylamide - One psychedelic drug..
