A YouTuber Built a Ramp Buggy That Can Actually Flip Cars
Anyone who has ever played a video game with cars has had the experience of flipping a vehicle. It's fun and entertaining but is not suitable for real life. Or is it?
A new video series follows the construction of a ramp buggy that can actually flip cars. In this final episode, the video follows the engineers as they work on the buggy’s adjustable suspension, one of the final steps in the vehicle's construction.
The buggy's makers then proceed to install a custom-made dashboard where the gauges are nestled. This part was cut out from a sheet that was used for the buggy’s floor but it seems to fit perfectly in its new location. Is this luck or good engineering?
Of course, it goes without saying that we would not suggest building this buggy. Flipping cars in real life is not cool, to say the least. It can be very dangerous and life-threatening.
This does not however mean we can't be entertained by the production of such a vehicle. For a little more harmless fun, in the 10-minute mark, you can see the buggy go out and actually overturn a little red car. It looks like the buggy works after all.
Engine technology has come a long way since the dawn of the Space Age.
