He wanted to move the dumpster, but lubrication of the ground just caused the wheel to spin and he got no traction. It's a good way to wear out your tires!

Maybe it's to prove he got his father's cousin's genes?

The simple answer is- because he can.

I used to take one of my Model A trucks to the mud bog on Saturday nights. It's an old beater but I had lots of fun showing up the guys with big tires and hopped up motors. There were a few who chastised me for doing it, but I told them "it's mine, I'll do what I want with it. Besides I have another one at home that looks a hell of alot better than this one if I want to go to a display only show."

If you look again, the tyre is almost worn to the cord and they seem to be trying to burn it through - at one point someone says 'Think another go will get 'er?

More interesting, why are ther 2 trailer ball hitches protruding alongside each rear wheel?

I have seen the same thing on different TV programs where they do that with cars and motorcycles. The crowd goes wild, I guess I am just too old. It just looks stupid to me. Dave

See the brake that rubs on the tire? That wears the tire down really fast so maybe they were using up the last of the tread. Or they were testing the differential action and forgot to stop when it was proven to work.

Does anyone know what those tires were? Must have been from a motorcycle. At least the video proves how tough the t engine and drive train are.
