Yeph, reminds about one snowy day when my buddy in his Pontiac couldn't get from a street to my driveway ;)

I don't trust that, first off look how many times they had to edit the track then the tires. (Come on now with those mods even a Subaru or probably any other real 4X4 will make it up no problem). BUT my problem is there's a chain, connected to a winch i guess. They'll probably say it was only used to make sure it doesn't slide back when it gets to the top....hmmmmm

I have no problem with chain - just image car loses traction and slides - that will be a major f..k up.

Tires - i have no problem either - i bet you couldn't walk up that slide.

Other cars - fine, but i yet to see similar video. I wounder if G-wagen can make it up that hill.

Yeah that is pretty cool, but like stated I don't think it's anything plenty of other cars couldn't do with a set of studded tires. I'd love to see Jim Rogers' GLK do it though [:D] I don't think the Gwagen could do that, center of balance is far too high on that steep slope. I wonder if a Gwagen could do this though:

I agree that it is a cool video and a pretty amazing slope. On the other hand there are plenty of other cars that could accomplish the same thing given the same circumstances.
