Watch driver force bakkie into reverse at 64km/h

Motoring

If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if you forced a manual gearbox into reverse at speed (admit it, you have) then this video might answer your question.

The don’t-do-this-at-home stunt was performed in an old US-market Ford Ranger at 40mph (64.4km/h). The result was not as dramatic as we might have imagined, but we do suspect that grippier tyres would have possibly led to more mechanical carnage.

“Everybody has always wondered, this guy is dumb enough to try it,” said the YouTube description. We did tell you not to try this at home, right?
