I love the myths filmed at New Mexico TechSpeed, Collison welding is cool. The world seems clearer through the shock wave and so much messier once it passes. (Well, that part is science.)
I was surprised they didn’t use a guide wire for car drop. Considering the distance, it wasn’t surprising the dropped car missed the X. But maybe there isn’t a wire strong enough, or they were concerned about it being in the way of the car on the ground.
Still, as a kid who loved RC vehicles, it would be so cool to control one going 105 mph.
