Car Long Jump (Spoiler: Massive Crash!!)
Pretty surprised there wasn’t an ambulance/fire crews with engines running ready to go to the scene of a crash. Seeing them run with extinguishers in hand seemed a bit poor.
He’ll have only had the minimum fuel in a modified impact resistant tank, to minimise the fire risk.Posted 3 years ago
Anyone find the editing really annoying?
I just wanted one clean shot of the landing from one camera.
I thought the editing was brilliant. Really got the drama up that something was going to go wrong… especially when you saw the driver’s (pilot’s?) face at the split second before impact.Posted 3 years ago
The one clean shot came straight after.
Superb I thought.spooky_b329Member
There seemed to be a tiny moment of hesitation with the gas as he went up the base of the ramp, suspect that loaded the suspension a little? All the other jumps were nose up, as soon as the nose got low I guess it loses that tiny bit of assistance from the airspeed and drops further. He made the distance, just landed on the front bumper.Posted 3 years agobig_scot_nannySubscriber
Ah, milky1980, thanks! My son and I were watching that and couldn’t figure out the nosedive. You can see on the second to last practice jump the same behaviour jsut starts to kick in right at the end.
I should know this, its exectly the same with RC cars – when you come of a jump, keep the gas on to keep the car stable in the air. Or use the throttle to adjust pitch.
Thanks!Posted 3 years ago
