Can we take a second to discuss this? I come from a family of mechanics and I gotta ask, how do they use these things without dying?????
1. Thin bicycle wheels are super unstable *and* easy to destroy on a pothole.
2. Giant freaking v12 engine is WAY too much power compared to the vehicle size and assumed weight. (How does the drive train not snap under this much power it looks like it's made of twigs!)
3. High back center of gravity, with any real acceleration or going over any bumps would cause it to wheelie like crazy (they need wheelie bars oml).
4. Wheels up front closer together than the wheels in the back which makes turning unstable and difficult. (And are those like a shopping cart style wheel mounts???? So no bro that's so sketch they either don't turn or break off even if the whole arm moves that's so sketchy.)
And quite a few other things honestly.
All this combined make it, at any amount of speed or acceleration, wobbly, drifty, it has tons of drag, super unstable, wheelie roll-over monster machines. The only time you could drive it fast-ish at all is if you were going straight on a well-kept flat grippy road with no winds in the area. It's so sketchy bruh at least put super thick drag-strip tires on them.
They look amazing but they would kill *everyone*. Honestly mad props to Kim for being able to control these things that's absolutely insane. Literally more dangerous than motorcycles I stg and this man decides he loves one with even more power than normal?! Bro how.
