YouTuber Simulates What It's Like to Drive With Other Planets' Gravity

All gravity-related issues aside, at least it would be traffic-free.

It is highly unlikely that you'll ever get your car in a space rocket and go to other planets with it, but it is still fun to think about driving traffic-free in the craters of the Moon.

The Action Lab YouTube channel uses BeamNG Drive, which is a physics-based game that can simulate different gravity levels and how materials deform in crashes, to question just what would happen if you tried to do such a thing. 

How would different gravitational forces in different planets affect your driving experience? Well, you are about to find out. Especially, driving on the Moon looks like a fun experience. He even tries Jupiter, even though there is no solid ground for anyone to actually drive anything on it.

On a side note, doesn't this make you think that with gravity out of the equation it would be so fun to have such VR experiences? For example, maybe driving on Mars' red soil while listening to "Life on Mars" by David Bowie? Yes, please.
