Hard corner that one, little bit of negative camber, tight as fook, very slippy shiny black tarmac and the farmers use it all the time.

No weight in the back, tyres aren't great, and now the weather isn't great I miss the ballast weights under the spare tyre.

Easiest thing to do is get loads of understeer as your braking into the corner, and go straight through the fence. Notice how all the fencing is new? It's always been "new" in the last 5 years i've been doing that road.

Still came off pretty lucky, spun my jets out loads of times, yet nothing worse (touch wood).

Never spun mine yet but then most of the time it's loaded with all sorts of stuff right up to the roof.

So, (gets out notebook) you observed a potentially hazardous bend, with a potentially hazardous road surface, you had possibly defective tyres, you have illegally modified your vehicle, and you braked into the corner?????

Shoulda put your foot down M8!

I had ours come round going uphill in the snow earlier this year not a lot in the back and the 15 stone lad from work in the front with me it all got a little light and had it twitch a few times but ours is a MPV and all that glass worries me if it were just a van I don't think I would be as gentle with it.

I was confident in everyone saying they were hard to tip over until I saw that drift video where the guy J-turns...terribly.
Your video therefore confuses, how scared should I be of rolling this thing....or more so...my wife rolling it.
