Hmmmmm Jeff, sorry but it is recycled stuff. Been on around since 2002/3.

Still pretty impressive though :o) At first I thought it was going to be same as the Range Rover they rolled as an example of High Centre of Gravity

Hmm, sorry bout that guys, I had wondered if it was recycled but I had never seen it before and I normally get all that crud in my email when it's first out.

Oh well, still a good laugh!

I found it quite wierd how easily the Troll got up on two wheels, I noticed there were heaps of people in it too, I wonder if they were helping by leaning to one side or somthing? Also when it came down again, it was turning to the left, even though it was on it's right wheels?? There's a lot of skill there...

I guess that explains why there are so many one armed guys in the middle east. What a guts move.

Or is that how they negotiate the road blocks?

Yeah - looks like something my son would do - only his Nissan is the most jacked up Nissan you'd ever see. Then again, when in comes to wheels, that son is crazy.

Sort of like when you first start wheel stands on a bike, you tend to go through a few rear gaurds before you get it right, wonder how many nissans they went through to get that one right ?
Then again, a new nissan to an oil rich arab is like a new mud gaurd to me!
