    Where does he make the mistake? I think it is when he slows and steers, then suddenly lets go of brakes and steers other way.
    As you can see in the first few shots, it handled very well. I wonder if it was modified in any way to handle well in the suspension (stiffer, maybe?) Look at the second drifts. :-s I thought the roll was going to happen on the third one.. but no.

    Or actually the roll was intentional.. I am trying to get the source of this video. Braak has few comments, but nothing solid:

    I've seen that before.

    Where did he go wrong? Drifting in a Jeep, that's where he went wrong. What a shame, twas a nice XJ (i've always had a thing for them...)

    Did someone fall out of the Jeep? The very last few frames show some thing on the Right Rear near the ground as if a person fell out. That would suck!

    That definitely looks like a white-shirted upper torso flailing around :)

    What a jerk.

    Too bad, XJ's are nice.

    Oh, and I hope he keeps his genes to himself!!!!!!!

    I wish i could find the video around here somewhere of the local police that were doing EVOC training for there cherokees and the instructor showing them how to do it actually rolled it over several times before resting on its top... very funny. Shortly after the incident they phased them out.

    I have some Indy police videos of my Uncle In Law when he was on Cops... Except he was the cop.
