Conventional wisdom dictates that if you set out to make a MacGyver video to post on YouTube, you must have a roll of duct tape. Or a pack of chewing gum. At the very least, a pocket knife.

We're not sure if these Russian guys had any of the aforementioned items – heck, we're not even sure if they're Russian – but they did have an E34 BMW 5 Series. Which is exactly the car we'd choose for a winter expedition flying giant kites. Or whatever it was they were doing with several hundred feet of spooled nylon cord. Follow the jump to watch the brief video clip.

      Imagine if it had limited slip diff and they didn't know about it. Recently I saw and idiot owner of Lamborghini Diablo who didn't knew it was all wheels drive VT model. He found that out when he tried to measure it on a two wheels drive only dyno. I laughed my ass off when I saw it!

      What about scarring on the tire?

      Conveniently for these guys BMW doesn't offer limited slip diffs in any non-M cars anymore.

      Translation: "Stars..." (meaning you're being filmed and will be on youtube). At the end, the driver says "This is the birth of a new..." and then the video gets cut off. Pretty brilliant, actually, but as has been mentioned, they are lucky there's no LSD. Although they may have tried spinning the wheel first.
