Yep... I would think that no matter what the vehicle is equipped with, 9000 lbs smashing into a car that can`t weigh more than 1500 lbs at oh say, 45 mph, would really hurt.

"I don`t know much about the mechanics of vehicle collisions..."

Or the laws of physics it would seem. ;-/ inertia = mass * velocity no matter what high-tech materials are being used, no?

"Every time I see one of those things, I can`t help but wonder what it would look like if my 9000 pound truck t-boned it"

I don`t know much about the mechanics of vehicle collisions, but with the great variety of technologies, materials and designs around today, I doubt the equation is as simple as "the biggest vehicle wins".

And it really is dangerous overconfidence to assume that it is.

I`ve been rolling around town in a manual toyota yaris. It`s probably a good bit bigger than this but I can still get in and out of any space and I get 40 mpg so I love my little go-buggy.

"Smart" car driver will not feel so smart after being run over by Kegomatix F250.

Isn`t that what marketing is all about - "how do we get idiots to buy this car? Oh, I know, lets name it a `smart` car!" Marketing win!

Aww poor smart. :(
I`ve been driving company smart cars for years. They`ve sort of grown on me, I just know them so well. Terrible driver`s car, but absolutely amazing city car for darting in and out of traffic. The thing fits anywhere. I always tell people, as a driving enthusiast I think they`re terrible. But as an automotive enthusiast, I think they`re fantastic! I had a chance to drive a 2013 model last week that had power steering. Mind blown!

Darkmagic, it is an F250 lol... It isn`t lifted but it is 4x4. Also it has the 7.3 turbo diesel, so it really isn`t all that bad on fuel. Yesterday I moved an entire living room set for a friend of mine in one trip, a couple weeks ago I was helping another friend move and in one load we fit a refrigerator, two couches, a dining room table, a living room table and two end tables all with the tailgate up. Love an 8 foot bed.

the trouble with the smart is for such a tiny car it gets terrible mpg, you need the avago,c1,107 or the VW up in the states tiny but proper cars with excellent mileage

Pro Tip* WD-40 will take that right off without hurting the car paint.

I`d wager that this has less to do with the car than the driver.

[quote]cry fowl on owning a truck[/quote]

owning a truck is okay, owning an F250/350, especially if its lifted, serves little purpose for majority of said truck owners.

Also, I notice my first post might be easily misconstrued. "Wow what a serious d-bag" was aimed at whoever vandalized the car.

Oh and intrigid, refer to my previous post.

I have several vehicles, since when did owning a truck mean you`re a d-bag? Must have missed that one. You`re probably one of those idiots that cry fowl on owning a truck (for whatever reason) then as soon as you need something hauled, you`re trying to find a friend who owns one. So how about you go f*ck yourself?

Kegomatix, if you`re not a freelance lumberjack or heavy equipment mover, you`re most likely a douchebag. If you are one of these, you`re probably still a douchebag.
