@pip-bip It doesn't look like the inflator fired fully. This probably wasn't triggered by the sensors. I'm guessing something else happened. The igniter could have been partially triggered by the vibration. Either the camera mount was very loose or there was something else wrong with the car making it shake like that.
@pip-bip I saw that video yesterday and it made me think of good and bad designs in the United States. In my town, the local shooting range, the Sportsmen's Club, is next to the schools. The targets are placed away from the buildings and it's set up for safety. It just means that you get used to the sound of gun shots. It's been this way for years and everybody seems to be reasonable about it. There are a lot of hiking trails near the range, but it's set up to avoid issues and it works. In other words, you can have a shooting range in the middle of an American city as long as everybody acts like reasonable adults.
@urambo-tauro No, no, I think what happened here is that the collision detection routine encountered an overflow error, and glitched by reversing the velocity vector. Game engines act weirdly sometimes.
@s65 I never worry about the level of overspend on bikes that are like family pets.
Bike painting, I think, is better done by those with real painting skilz. A hastily spray bombed bike almost always looks crappy. Guy in the video has many skilz.
holy shit! never watched moto gp, but this is just sensational!
Flag to Flag races where they swap bikes because of rain are completely nuts. Le Mans also had a lot of drama because of it this year too (Marc crashed leading in the rain).
Unfortunately the subscription is a couple pretty pennies (and the times suck for me to watch most of the races live) but most races these days are just awesome at how close these guys are and the coverage is excellent.
I was 0.037s from guess the pole time. Man, that Tissot with Martin Sig would have been a hell of a gem.
@just-a-scratch first as others said if properly restrained does nothing.
My suspicion is the airbag is designed to stop you if you're traveling forward at x speed. if doing 110mph you are going to be much farther forward than you would be expected to hit. so instead of cushioning, you wack forward, then get punched back by the airbag.
