How to roll an Ex Military Hummer

Hi Fellas,

Thought this may be of interest to some. My son came home and said he had seen a guy who attends his high school roll his Hummer in a local sub division. I asked him incredulously, how could he have possibly managed this as the CoG of those trucks is really low. What happened was he came around a corner too quick, hit an oncoming people carrier, drove up the hood and then, well fell over, as seen in the photo.

I saw an in service HMMV doing 80mph on the Texas 130 toll today. Tried to catch up to them but my exit came up.
I did not think those things were capable of going that fast.

In the late 90's we had all kinds of crazy hybrids of up armored with turbos, up armored without turbos and the Queen of all Hummers the 4spd turbo non armored. You can peg out a 6.2 pretty easily given enough room.

4spd auto compared to the 3 speed which didn't sound great at 70+mph.

I'd wager the opposite... unless the front wheels are supposed to be angled away

I think you are confusing camel toe with some other kind of toe. I would post a helpful graphic but it might get me fired.

I was part of a disciplinary board for two airmen that rolled an aircraft tug doing doughnuts on wet tarmac.
