Super car driver idiots [NO pics, only videos]
I got bored with all the "super car crashes"-videos here on YouTube that
only contained PICTURES, CRAPPY MUSIC or/and clips of pure racing cars on
official racing events.
This compilation DOES NOT include pure racing cars on official racing
events - only real life FAILures on the STREETS, made by people with more
money than driving skills...
(Though, even the best car drivers can crash too of course.)
Notice 1: The "Dodge Ram" may not be a super car, but still it's a SRT10
with the 8.3L Viper V10 which produces 510hp. Pretty super for a pick up,
don't you think? It has more power than several of the cars in this video.
The intention with this video was to show that skills doesn't come with
Notice 2: Tire is the preferred spelling in the U.S. and Canada. Tyre is
preferred in most varieties of English outside North America. And I'm from
Sweden. So please think outside your box (country), you who claims "tyre"
is incorrect spelling.

The majority of the drive is done with the driver seeing nothing but sky.

Hummer H1 Off Road Driving COMPLETELY Underwater Experience!
Hummer H1 Off-Road EXTREME!!! Is it a Hummer H1? Amazing footage of a
Modified Hummer H1, or Humvee, or a КАЛИСТРАТ!!? off road driving
under water in a river, will he make it???? What an experience!!
The hummer's(?) Exhaust is completely
submerged and the rest of the Hummer goes under water.
The Hummer H1 is a civilian off-road vehicle based on the M998 Humvee,
which was created by AM General. The vehicle was produced from 1992 through
2006, and was the first of what became the Hummer line. It was initially
known only as the "Hummer"; however, in 1999 in a joint venture between
General Motors and AM General, GM began marketing the Hummer H2, which was
built on a heavily modified GMC 2500HD chassis. It was at this point that
the original Hummer was given the H1 designation. For collectors, the most
desirable model is the H1 Alpha, produced in the final model year of 2006.
It had the most powerful engine and the best fuel mileage of the H1
vehicles. Overall, the H1 was a very limited production vehicle.
"Originally designed strictly for military use the four-wheel-drive utility
vehicle was released to the civilian market due to popular demand. Boasting
16 inches (40 cm) of ground clearance as well as super-aggressive approach
and departure angles, the Humvee could clamber over a 22-inch (56 cm) high
obstacle, handle a 60 percent grade and wade through up to 30 inches (76
cm) of water."
In the official state testing for the army revealed an inability to move in
snow (For the "Hammer" snow proved irresistible). Others were able to

Airless tire test Humvee vs Hummer
Non-pneumatic tires (NPT), or Airless tires, are tires that are not
supported by air pressure. They are used on some small vehicles such as
riding lawn mowers and motorized golf carts. They are also used on heavy
equipment such as backhoes, which are required to operate on sites such as
building demolition, where tire puncture is likely. Tires composed of
closed-cell polyurethane foam are also made for bicycles and wheelchairs.
The main advantage of airless tires is that they cannot go flat, but they
are far less common than air filled tires.
Airless tires generally have higher rolling resistance and provide much
less suspension than similarly shaped and sized pneumatic tires. Other
problems for airless tires include dissipating the heat buildup that occurs
when they are driven. Airless tires are often filled with compressed
polymers (plastic), rather than air.
Michelin is currently developing an integrated tire and wheel combination,
the "Tweel" (derived from "tire" and "wheel," which, as the name "Tweel"
suggests, are combined into one new, fused part), that operates entirely
without air. Michelin claims its "Tweel" has load carrying, shock
absorbing, and handling characteristics that compare favorably to
conventional pneumatic tires. Automotive engineering group of mechanical
engineering department at Clemson University is developing a low energy
loss airless tire with Michelin through the NIST ATP project.
Resilient Technologies and the University of Wisconsin--Madison's Polymer
Engineering Center are creating a "non-pneumatic tire", which is basically
a round polymeric honeycomb wrapped with a thick, black tread. The initial
version of the tire is for the Humvee and is expected to be available in
