Thats is way cooler than anything i have ever seen. Genius stuff. 100 % traction 24/7! I wonder how he has the hydraulics working as a active suspension.

It looks like the front suspension is opposing, when one wheel is forced up it forces fluid to the other side and forces the other wheel down. That would maintain equal pressure on each front tire. The rear appears to be manually controlled. The rear is what is used to maintain a level attitude. That is what it looks like from the video.

I've watched and re-watched the video, and thought he must have a computer controlling the level of the cab. Not being the mechanic or an engineer, I'm just in total awe of this vehicle. When I searched his other youtube posts, I got onto the little kid driving the Explorer truck. There has to be an award that guy should be given for that design.

I prefer to NOT GO anywhere that design would be useful.

Think about it. You KNOW something's going to go hooves-up at just the wrong time and place, leaving you with a 40-mile nature walk and no way to recover the thing without a helicopter.
