Imagine if you saw this car coming at you...

It's a crazy contraption. 4 wheel steering and runs backwards.

The dialup-ers might want to stay away (14MB). It'll take about 2 minutes at 1.5mbit to download.

You might want to do a right click "save target as" because I don't know many people but me that can stream it.

Re: Imagine if you saw this car coming at you...

what havoc that would cause on the tires and many other things but that was sweet. i once had a huge lifted chevy truck coming at me at the local movie theater like that...wigged me out.

Re: Imagine if you saw this car coming at you...

No problem here either Wrath, I was loaded up and playing it in about ten seconds also...good connection I guess.
That is the wierdest thing I've seen in a while, but funny, did ya hear him chirping the tires when he shifted into second?..he he he. And you could tell he didn't have complete control of that thing all the time either, couple of those turns didn't look like they were on purpose.
What was neat was the two steering wheels, two seats, etc, etc, but facing opposite directions...great for chatting to a friend while driving...sitting right in front of you...ha ha ha ha ha. Interesting though.

Re: Imagine if you saw this car coming at you...

No troubles streaming it here either. Only an ignorant british a hole would come up with something as lame as that. Personaly I woulda been happy to see the local constables pulling an idiot like that over and halling him straight to the clink. It's morons like that that get people killed, I am glad they don't live in my town. All that said, I am still laughing my a$$ off over that [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Imagine if you saw this car coming at you...

A lot of people have slow cable/dsl (256kbps) and I've got 1544kbps. The movie is 512kbps or something so you'd need a 768 connection. My webhosting provider always has plenty of bandwidth so I knew that wasn't going to be a problem.

Those guys are crazy. If you notice, sometimes there are two guys in there, both operating steering wheels.

It was cool but rather dangerous. Apparently they've spent a lot of time driving it to get a hang of it otherwise they'd have swapped paint in some of those situations.

Re: Imagine if you saw this car coming at you...

Now that was cool. It's guys like that that need to go on Junkyard Wars. I loved it when he went around a corner and it didn't even look like he steered. I would love to take a car like that for a spin in a field. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Imagine if you saw this car coming at you...

Holy sheisse, I was just talking to DanStew about doing something similar but with a pick-up, and swapping the engine and axles around so it appeared to be running in reverse...
