These Guys Built A DIY 4WD System And It (Sort Of) Works

Russian YouTube heroes Garage54's latest innovation is a DIY all-wheel drive system, although it does have some drawbacks...

If you’re sick of getting stuck when the weather’s bad, you might consider getting a car with four-wheel drive. And preferably fitting it with winter tyres.

Or you could try the Garage54 way. Our favourite Russian YouTubers modified a Lada, fixing another set of wheels on the existing rims to act as cable drums. A steel cable was fitted between the two, which winds up as the driven wheels pull the cable away from the undriven ones, rotating them in the process.

And you know what? It actually works. The only trouble is, the system runs out of cable after 25 metres, and if you’re not careful, you might break your fingers whenever the steering wheel is wrenched out of your hands. Like we said - ‘sort of’.



How about they stop fking with Ladas?

They had literally the first unmanned lunar mission a decade before the US sent a man there and acted like they won.

OMG, it’s amazing! I can feel in it non-standard Russian view. Only these people could make a bicycle from an ordinary car. I really like this video and share shortcuts of it in my TikTok channel. I suppose that it will be popular there, I’ll just use for first thousands of views and the next will be organic.
