I think the unit and trailer just needed a helping hand to start rolling and then was under it's own power. Pretty impressive though

Agree with Andy. It had stopped at the junction on a slight uphill gradient.When it went to pull away it didn't quite have enough traction. A few extra horses was all it needed just to get it rolling.

Couldn't agree more - really don't think it was a spoof - more a helping hand from a friendly Scooby driver - still an awesome bit of footage!!

on the newage the driverterain is set up different to classics. in that dont the newage have both front and rear lsd's. this would give it that extra power to get this going. ok it probably was only a helping hand but with the right driver and car
