If only it were so easy!

Sadly it's not real.

I've been in stunt driver Russ Swift's Mini when he drives on 2 wheels. It's a constant balancing act with constant correcting going on, so a few guys hauling heavy wheels and tyres around while the truck remains rock steady just can't be true.

My guess is there's a third dolly wheel behind the car in the shadow.

Still, it's a great video and the music really works!

Happy trails,

Jojo

yep, and I reckon someting else is going on as my understanding is that to do a 2 wheeler for any length of time drive must be going to one of the wheels on the ground, which means it must have a locked cross axle diff (welded if not fitted with diff locks), which would mean the wheel being changed would be spinning

Thumbs down Ridiculous!

Sorry, but in my opinion the video is completely and utterly idiotic and irresponsible.
