Mythbusters - How to pancake a car Video Answered

Picture of


A great video of the mythbusters team firing a two-stage rocket sledge into a car in an attempt to pancake it :P

At the point of impact the sledge was traveling at 650mph !!

The car doesn't really get pancaked, it just kinda... disintegrates, which is completely awesome.

I watched this dozens of times after i saw it aired, and I can see a freakin shock wave while its going through the car. this clip and the clip when they blow up the cement truck are my favorites from these guys.

Honestly, I'm recalling some Dragonball Z, where guys go flying into rocks, explosions like this occur, and the same guys emerge, with just a couple of bruises.
