Drifting a 200,000-pound truck

Not every vehicle is suited for drifting, but you’d be surprised sometimes. Take this 200,000-pound truck, for instance; have you ever wondered if you could drift it, or if it would drift at all? I think not, but Mike Ryan – upon data protection firm EMC’s request – took a Caterpillar789 dump truck usually used for mining and powered by a 78-liter V16 diesel engine developing 2,000 horsepower and put the pedal to the metal. What came out, you’ll have to see for yourselves. Enjoy!
