Most of these gooners either never drove a stick shift or any car. Not even a bicycle from what I read.

rolladuck: Lsherm: All of this might make it sound like I'm shilling for FPV, but I'm not. I'm just saying that vehicle was designed with one very specific purpose in mind - keeping people alive after an IED attack - and it's apparently pretty good at it.

My life was saved by one of those vehicles. If you're a shill, you're horribly overpaid. They shill themselves with results.

I'm not a shill, but I'm glad you're OK. Seems to me the vehicle serves the design purpose. That's a prototype braking test, on asphalt, and I guess they worked out the details of the failure before it went live. Farkers knocking it don't understand what they're watching.

Diagonal: But fast, light, "techs" with soft tires and great weight distribution could not possibly be the answers. Take a toyota pickemup, strip it, put a couple of M60s or a mini-gun on it, ride like hell, run over IED, IED explodes behind due to speed.

Hell! They're even cheaper.

If I'm putting people I care about in a vehicle, I'm not using "outrun an explosion" as a design consideration. That's just farking stupid.

Locking up the wheels actually takes longer to stop than a controlled braking.
