That thing must be weighted perfectly I guess? He sure is nuts though! Was that JR from OCC? LOL :D

Well on a positive note I don't think he needs to put a plow on it to plow up the fields :D

It doesn't have enough traction to flip I guess. Really light in the back end. He's pretty brave to drive it that aggressively. I'd be worried about rolling it if it fetched up on something when doing donuts like that.

I couldnt count on one hand how many times iv seen that video pop up on diff sites and n this site alone. I agree it should have flipped especially with those AG's and I thought maybe weighted to one side? Then i watched as he spun donuts in both directions so that can't be.....I'm more upset bout him burnin up those AG's I can't afford to buy.....lol

As long as he keeps the tires spinning while turning it will slide. If he was to let off in a turn resulting in traction it would flip. Don't ask how I know that. It was a great time!

Oh and no that's not me.

Right on the money! Ever seen what happens to a dirt sprinter when those big soft tires stop spinning and slipping in a corner. Cartwheels all the way own the chute has gotta hurt.

I think it's irresponsible to show those vids. The old Bolinder Munktell is tuned up to it's end and so it's very dangerous.

If you look closer, you will see that he always does the donuts in low traction areas. When on a hard surface he never does it unless it's wet. Also, a lot of times it's only one wheel spinning

Can you imagine the gyroscopic effect of a wheel that tall when spinning at that speed. Must have quite a stabilizing effect.
