Made me laugh reading the intro text "the Brit piece of crap" (they couldn't even spell piece properly) "had ECU fault which caused the loss of brake servo"?

what a load of crap, it takes more than 2 seconds of braking for the servo to lose it all... more like he went backwards in reverse driving like a spastic!. (just read all the comments on that video, everyone else thinks so too!)

Hmmm.... maybe the driver had a job where he would have to stand on the front often?

I think I would win the award for most dangerous roll over... I was towing a very crappy overloaded rental trailer and the axle bent when I got up to 45mph I got the serious death wobble. I tried to slow down and get to the shoulder. But i was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Bridge work was going on and the shoulders were blocked by K-rails. I started to fishtail then hit a k-rail aI over corrected to prevent killing a mini van that caused me to fil on my right side and slide across 4 lanes of traffic on I-15 @ 9:15AM on a Monday morning. While sliding on my side i heard lots of siding and screeching and once I cam to a stop I was waiting for the inevitable getting T-boned. It was a miracle that there was no secondary crashes... Talk about being scared shitless..... What saved me was the NAS cage that worked as designed also some custom sliders I made and the front ARB bumper took the hardest hit.... About 10 guys came to the rescue and we fliped the 90 back on its side and It started and I drove it to the shoulder...

Thats what I noticed too. In fact, he could have probably done anything at all at any time near the bottom of the hill and avoided it. The other video probably wins though.
