wouldn't it break the surface tension when it went up and then came down?

I think the Mythbusters did something like this one episode, trying to test weather or not someone could run fast enough to go over water. They put a platform just underneath the water so that the reflection rendered it invisible when viewing it from a shallow angle, in fact, you can even see it at the 13 second mark. I'm pretty sure that's what they did here, and i could explain why it made a flip at the end: the platform ended, the car dipped, it impacted the shore, and it's momentum carried it up and over.

Disprove me if I'm wrong, of course.

As an experienced, yet retired RC collector I'll give you hints to your answer.

Proper gearing, High-cell, multi lipo, brushless motor, sand paddle tires, power-to-weight ratio, surface tension of water, hydroplaning, jesus lizard, and multiple other youtube videos may convince you otherwise.

Also, look up "atv hydroplaning" on youtube....That should pretty much change your opinion.

I can also say, that I honestly thought that when he was landing that wheelie, he is very lucky that it rebounded, and didn't dive under.

Why would they go through all that trouble putting a platform in the water just for a 15 second video. And the car flipped because it hit land.......lawyered

I agree with you. At 0:07 when the front wheels get some air and come back down, if there wasnt something below the water i reckon the nose would dip into the water. Instead it kind of bounces back up.

Anything that can go that fast probably wasn't cheap. This guy has some balls, risking putting it at the bottom of a pond to get a cool video.

They are about 600 dollars for a base chassis with no motor, batteries, or ESC.

I raced for Traxxas for a few years..

im gonna say Traxxas slash with a bigass lipo battery and paddle tires

Sounds about right. Most likely an upgraded brushless motor too.
Anyone know if those things will do ok over snow? I dont want to damage or short something.

your best bet is to get a water tight casing, my b4 buggy is able to do the same thing, or it was until it went to the bottom after some bad steering.

Attach camera to the inside
Add wings
Make it fly
Fly high enough that no one will see how big everything is compared to the car.
World amazed by flying car.

They already attached wings to a tricycle and made it fly.
The world wasn't very impressed.
