5th Gear crash test

Post by RobBMW on Sat Oct 15, 2011 5:50 am

Just watching 5th gear! Not usually a fan of it but I like their crash tests and my old man made me aware they're doing another tonight:
fastest ever crash test....120mph into a solid wall to test a 60mph against 60mph test to see what happens!

Anyone else watchin?

400G Forces from 120mph-0mph in 68milliseconds!!

It's an older ford focus and there's not a lot left after!!

If anyone finds a video of it I recommend a re-watch!! Pretty haunting stuff! Makes me think twice about overtaking into oncoming traffic on a 60mph road although forces would be slightly reduced as it's not a totally imovable object hitting another car, but forces wouldn't be much different i dont think

All their 'tests' are shite anyway! Like you say the controll is normally older,weaker, deadlier than what's on the rd anyway! So the 'in-flush able' turd that is fith gear strikes again! Rolling Eyes
