    It looks like fun but this might be one of the reasons they don't want these to be street legal in the USA.Your face will be wearing the bumper of the vehicle in front of you instead of the plastic bumper on the truck. I wonder if the newer models with the forward set axles will do this

    lzpoor - Are you under the impression that the laws of physics don't apply in Japan (and other markets where minitrucks are legal?) This was performed from low speed (less than 30 MPH, right Nate?) and he pumped the brakes a few times to get it rocking. If you bury the pedal on the floor, the tires lock up and you skid, just like any other vehicle without ABS.

    this is a thread about stoppies! not safety! If we were concerned about safety we probably wouldnt be doing this in the first place(I cant talk for colin, hes a pussy)..

    Hey, are those Ford Escort wheels on Nate's rig?? 13" or 14" ? Do they rub at all?

    They are 14" escort rims, they rub a little at full turn either way.
