Idle Over It!

Ever wonder what gobs of VW diesel torque does? Watch Erik Dossett's snorkeled 1.9TD Samurai idle through a wooded trail, around rutted corners,
over a log and up a muddy embankment with wheels left spinning. Erik's wife demonstrates how it's done Alaska style! (3.5 minutes.
May take a while to load.)
