Little does true creativity on boundaries, and this video is a great way to prove it. We've seen quite a lot of makeshift machinery coming from Russia, and some of it was really hilarious.
However, this Ural/Dnepr-powered DIY ATV looks really cool, despite the fact that it's still a long shot from the prototype stage. It surely is very heavy, judging by the welded steel front end, but we definitely have to give these guys a big hand for the result.

Watch the way all the wheels seem to track the ground unevennes: even from such early stage we can hope for good tire contact, an essential asset for any off-road machine.

Now, the absence of any sort of exhaust is definitely not a good solution, as you can actually see flames coming out the exhaust valve ports and this meas they'll set any bodywork on fire, save for a sheet metal one. Which would most likely become red hot at times, anyway.

Nice try, but there's still much to do. Maybe they should start with a fuel tank: open flames and a PET bottle filled with petrol? Things can really go messy!
