You should look up a show called "dirt every day" on youtube, they drive through about a 5m deep pond, they do heaps of other cool stuff too, well worth a look if you like 4 wheeling.

He's nuts, even by Russian standards, by the sound of the dude filming!

Good way to lose a fourby. All it needed was a bit of a hole somewhere to lift the wheels and seeya later.

I would be totally keen to give that a crack..... In someone else's 4WD :lol:

In mine though, yeah, nah :mrgreen:

I try not to go any deeper than the door seals if a crossing is much longer than 15 or 20 metres.

It's funny because he got out, but frankly idiotic driving.

He could easily have stuck MUCH closer to the shore, much safer, instead of deliberately going down the centre of the river to put on a big show.

It's all fun and games until it goes wrong.

I reckon it all started after he said "here hold my bottle of vodka, I want to try something".
