    Link: This Car Stops on a Dime - And then flips over it. (Is this even possible with out current laws of physics?)

    I`d say that`s a little bit longer than a dime... Considering how it was a 1 metre long skid before it actually stopped.

    Oh and, FANCYLAD MADE A TYPO!

    Wrong:
    "Is this even possible with out current laws of physics?"

    Right:
    "Is this even possible with our current laws of physics?"

    wow. For a quick second I imagined a car being "tripped up" by a dime. As in ten cents.

    yeah its pretty possible, the only things that stopped were the front wheels. the car was front-heavy. the back wheels kept turning, flipping the car over

    it wasn`t the brakes that stopped the car, it was the front of the car hitting the ground, then absorbing the motion.

    i think that it stopped like that because of hydrolics. listen for the hissing noise right before it pops up. paired with strong front brakes, that would produce what we just saw.

    You can see a bunch of hoses attached to the back axle pointing down--I assume those blow out compressed air, pushing the back of the car up. It was probably meant to do a reverse wheelie, but the driver stopped the front wheels completely instead of simply slowing down.

    its not breaking
    its trying to do an ENDO with the compressed air at the rear bottom of the car. However, too much air was compressed.

    As has been said, the car has some sort of modification to its back axel - either springs or hydrolics or something - that "bounce" the rear end up. So yes, it is possible with our current, universal, consistent, and unchanging laws of physics.

    It obviously wasnt the abrupt stop. Anyone who knows anything about physics can easily see that the leprecaun in front of the car flipped it over his head in order to attract a mate.

    Yup, he modified the rear axle so he could make the rear end of the car "jump" up using compressed air (or maybe hydraulics, didn`t really bother looking), you can hear it just before the car flips over.

    Also, the idiot should have put a rollcage in the car before he attempted that.

    twas the compressed air (you can see the holes in the back axle). Then when the back of the car got high enough, the nose of the car dug into the ground producing the sudden roll over.

    Of course its possible with the laws of physics, lol. The kinetic energy was transformed into rotational energy because one end of the car was stopped and the other one trying to go foward

    ^ The front end doesn`t stop, it skids a full car length before flipping over. The rotational energy is provided by the blast of air out of that contraption underneath the back axle. After it hits vertical and tips over, you`re right though.

    wait..thats a Dirt rode, and seeing how the car is ment for Speed, and its wheels are ment for traction(dirt wheels are WAY different then pavemnet) then for one, theres a turn up ahead, why would they brake THAT early?2, those tires are ment for Bad Ass players, so why would you install poo tires for something as fast as this? and 3rd, if your mechanic Did install poo wheels, ANY Good Driver would "Feel" The pooness of it...so it cant be the dimes fault...its the pooness of the Tires.
