That guy was pretty damn lucky... he could have rolled all the way down the hill.

That idiot parked at the top of the hill screwed up the guys line. If he had not been parked right at the top I bet he would have pulled it off.

But excellent presence of mind, most people would just have frozen at the roll, and ended up rolling all the way back down, at least the driver knew what to do, stayed calm and pulled it off, that was quite impressive...

I am with Scott, I dont think I could have done a turnaround that smooth on a dirt bike let alone a truck. What staying calm can do for you!


I just watched the video again and if you look up at the top right corner that guy parked in his way came flying down the hill behind him. CRAZY!

I'm with you, great job of driving, I'll bet his paint job even came out looking better than my pinstriping.

That Lion's Back video gives me the puckers every time I see it. I think that is my worst fear.

As for the Saudi's, I am impressed with the RPMs that thing is hooting out. I don't think a rover engine would stand for that kind of revving unless it was born at RPI and cost a bundle.
