Now that's what I call a physical challenge

"But, you're and idiot."

At least he used the correct form of your/you're.

That second guy barely had enough speed to make the jump.

The first car really didn't look like it had the speed at the top of the loop to keep it from dropping.

/wonders if there were secret magnets in place on those loops
//ok, not really, but it did look like it literally defied Newton's law

Some one actually did crash on the jump yesterday. At least from what I noticed. I only caught the replay at the bar when I walked in to get dinner.

No, that was two cars doing one loop at more or less the same time. Nice try.

I thought that looked kinda familiar, in a reverse angle sort of way.

Wrong jump. The Hot Wheels stunt was set up in the middle of the rally cross course and someone botched that jump.

The crash was on a practice ramp next to the hot wheels track.

What is with those cars? Is there like 0inches of compression in the suspension system? That car landed and bucked like a bull and those both drove like they are on rails.

Yeah, they have crazy stiff suspensions. Watch some WRC rally races some time. Cars are so stiff, the are blasting down tiny dirt or paved lanes missing an entire wheel. They are freaking crazy and it is awesome to watch.

They mention that in the article...the suspensions were super stiff so that the cars didn't bottom out on the loop. Basically the cars are custom built to do this trick and nothing else.

That was really boring.

While driving the loop, the drives faced a load of over 7G of acceleration

I never took physics, or ceramics, for that matter, but wouldn't that be deceleration? They are sort of speeding into a wall.

I guess you have never seen a video of the centrifuge they use to train Air Force Pilots...

Acceleration is downwards, like the acceleration due to gravity on you right now. You are currently feeling 1 G. The acceleration felt in a loop is away from the loop, towards the center of it. G-force is a misnomer, it actually measures acceleration, not force. As you accelerate into the center of a loop because of the curvature of a track, it provides a change in direction while momentum is pushing you in a straight line. At certain points in a loop, the acceleration plus the acceleration due to gravity on you are additive, making the seat "push" harder on you to resist you pushing down, as well as the variations in speed due to kinetic energy.

I could be wrong though.

At @50mph, they hit 6g at most. According to the numbers in the article, it was closer to 5.9g.

/check my math, please

That was overproduced as fark.

Big corporations don't like to lose.

Hot Wheels? Since when did Hot Wheels have engines? Do it with engine-less cars using ramps and I'll be impressed. Or, don't call it "Hot Wheels", you dog-fellating pedos.

Ah, thanks for the correction. I wondered why they were running it again right after a crash, but like I mentioned, I was in a bar so I couldn't hear everything that was said.
