Hot Wheels Loop Stunt Performed In Real Life Shows Science At Its Finest

If you’re as annoyed as I am by Earth’s gravity and how it relates to cars, this one is for you. The death-defying insanity-fest that is the X Games held an event where a real-life Hot Wheels race loop was constructed before two high-performance cars were sent through it.

Tanner Foust and Greg Tracy are the two drivers that were insane enough to think that their 1.3 tonne performance cars could successfully complete the 18-metre loop-de-loop at this year’s X Games.

The cars had to enter the loop at a minimum of 77 km/h to successfully complete the loop, while simultaneously trying not to collide with each other. The results are truly astounding. [YouTube via Jalopnik]
