No big deal.They don"t start changing it until about two minutes in.

As a bit of a mechanic, and an off-road enthusiast, I`ll try to clear up a little confusion about the off-side tires not turning. Some of you are correct, in that, normally, the off-side (raised) tires should spin. This is due to the action of the differential assembly in the center of the axle. Under normal circumstances, under the conditions pictured, the off-side tires should spin at twice the speed as the tires on the ground, or faster. As was stated by turdburglar, a standard "locker" (negates the differential, essentially making it a straight axle) would cause the off-side tires to spin at the same speed as the tires on the ground. What they are most likely using is an "automatic locker", such as a Detroit (manufacturer) "Tru-Trac", which is built into the differential, and automatically locks the tire that is "spinning". Don`t know the exact mechanics of the Tru-Trac, and its kin, but they do work. Any questions?

freddyferrit - I won`t argue about the arm with a wheel. What you said about sending power to one wheel is true...but to be more accurate, the trans axle sends power to the wheel with less resistance...which would be the tire off the ground. Go ahead and try. Lift one of the drive wheels on your car with a jack. That wheel will spin and the car won`t move.

If it`s 4 wheel drive the front and back wheels are separate. So the power would go to the two wheels off the ground

Start watching it at the 2:40 mark. Unless there`s a REALLY small arm, there`s nothing there. The camera gets behind the truck so you can see the other side.

I don`t know about foreign trucks, but US vehicles will only have power to one wheel unless it`s a 4 wheel drive or all wheel drive. So it could have just had power to one of the wheels on the ground.

It was kind of cool to watch, but I don`t really see a point to doing that.

We don`t see the car come back down. I`m placing my wager on there being another wheel welded onto the car so it`s actually on three wheels in that position.

I may have to agree with tedgp. This just doesn`t add up. All the power from the engine would be directed by the trans axle to the wheels off the ground. Which means the tires off the ground would be spinning very fast, and the wheels on the ground would have no power. The truck would coast to a stop.

This truck would have to be modified to have this work. If you are going to modify the truck, why not just put an arm with a wheel on the other side while you are at it?

Theres probably a welded arm on the other side with weights and a few wheels. The car itself has been modified to power on 2 wheels only. Easily done if you just add a few plates to the end of each axle.

Something weird here. Why are the wheels off the ground NOT spinning. Usually, the differential will send power to the wheel with the least resistance, in this case it`s the ones off the ground.
If they had lockers, the wheels would be traveling the same speed as the ones on the ground.
Either they have a way of breaking the wheels on the driver side...or their is some funny business here.

Technically the didn`t change tires. They put the same tires back on. Ruined the whole video for me ;)
