Watch an off-road truck tear up a kart track

What happens if you put a very big, powerful off-road truck on a tight twisty track? Precision drifts

There’s not much room at indoor go-kart tracks. Anyone who has jostled for position and ended up headfirst in the barriers can tell you that. At best, you can probably get three diddy cars wide before someone has a terrific accident. So, what happens when you put a big, incongruous lump of off-road metal that’s probably about five times the size of a go-kart on a teeny-weeny track?

Well, in the wrong hands, another terrific accident. In the right hands though, you have YouTube gold. Luckily, the man in the video above is the right hands. It’s Carl Renezeder (the most successful driver in short-course history and therefore pretty handy) who took his V8-powered, lolloping off-road truck to a local electric kart track for a skid show.

The way he sways the truck around without clipping a barrier is nothing short of balletic. And makes our little attempts at drifting in a go-kart seem properly pathetic. Now, who wants a go?
