Re: Every time you go fast, remember this video!! (The Hater)

Do you know what speed that test was done at?
edit ... err ... ok I'm asleep nm ... 35 I see .... eww ... uhh .. how hard is it to put air bags in our cars? Thats scary if thats at 35 noone would survive a crash over 40?
Arent the guidlines more strict for crash saftey ratings than that?

Yeah plus most of the time they hit a pointed object that doesn't crush too, like the corner of a cement wall. To answer the question of putting airbags in your car, it would be really hard, if you are asking that question you aren't capable of doing it yourself and I have never heard of anybody retrofitting airbags to a car.

im sure youd end up hurting yourself putting them in, or having them go off on accident. it wouldnt be worth it. people were walking away from wrecks in the 80s too...just dont drive like a moron and hope that those around you do the same.

All i can say i am glad that you sevived that. That looks really really bad. Do you want to tell us what happend so if anyway we can not do that in anyway possible. I don't even think that roll cage would help out at all. most of the times roll cage on the street end up hurting people.

You guys gotta remeber that when they do those crashes, the object the car hits is not moving at all. most things that you hit in an accident will move.

Yea.... if that car in the video got thzat messed up hitting a non moving object at 35mph, thats pretty much the same as hitting an on coming car both going 17mph.
