Some folks will do the craziest, most outlandish issues for YouTube views. We’re positive you already know what we’re speaking about, however we would wish to deliver to your consideration a brand new video of a Tesla Mannequin 3 perched atop 10 toes tall wheels.
In the event you aren’t acquainted with the WhistlinDiesel channel, it focuses on performing ridiculous stunts with automobiles for YouTube views. Most of the time, the results of these stunts is the destruction of the automobiles concerned.
A few of the staff’s most well-known exploits embody doing burnouts in a Dodge Challenger Hellcat fitted with horse & buggy wheels, crushing a Nissan Skyline GT-R, driving a brand-new Mercedes-AMG G63 right into a deep swamp earlier than dropping it via a home, and extra.
For his or her newest stunt, Cody Detwiler and his staff took a Tesla Mannequin 3 and submitted it to a bunch of “exams” to see how sturdy it’s – issues like driving it with a wheel clamp on, reducing via the rear seats with a chainsaw, “summoning” it via a closed storage door, and extra.
However the spotlight of the video is when the Mannequin 3 will get a dramatic floor clearance improve courtesy of stagecoach-like customized wheels fabricated from metal.

Whereas we’re sorry for the Mannequin 3 – hopefully it was a salvage – it is onerous to argue with the leisure worth of this video, and a number of the jokes on the expense of Tesla and Tesla homeowners weren’t too dangerous both. Here is one technique to rack up greater than 2 million views in lower than 24 hours.
