Blue and Red gypsies seem to be at a height of 1.5 meters (or more).

How does the suspension survive such a fall? Fall from 1.5 meter would generate significant momentum that would have to be damped by suspension.

Some of the best jumps I have witnessed is from the Desert Storm videos. However our local K1000 also is a good place to catch a glimpse of a few high speed jumps.

A few from the local K-1000 rally.

One of the best jumps on this thread. Prepare to be shocked:

- It's NOT a rally car

- It's NOT in a rally

- It's a MAHINDRA

Very sorry, but i'm not sure who to credit for these pics. I've had them on my comp for ages!


This one blows my mind everytime i see it. Can't even imagine how pleasant the landing would have been

AWESOME

I am very keen to know what happened to the White and Yellow gypsies in the first few pictures. The one's that landed on their nose.
