I saw Russ Swift at the Mini40 Birthday Party at Silverstone in 1999. Of course he and his team were driving classic Minis at that time - but I think I remember seeing him only driving with the driver side down - I'll have to rewatch the videos I took. I did see him randomly take 3 people from the crowd, install them as passengers and put then his Mini up on two wheels with them aboard like there was no difference in how the car balanced at all. Amazing! I'd say with classic Minis, he never went more than 20 mph, but that may have been limited by how close the audience was to the stunts.karmuze said:Some questions for someone who has seen the act
Has anyone seen the Swifts do this on the left side wheels too? I think it would be more difficult driver side up, but not impossible. Don't they have to modify the differential to do this? At what speed can they travel on two wheels?
