That's kinda funny watching from a safe distance---wondering if the driver expected that launch?

There's a few similar RR track crossings in my area that could very easily be used as a ramp for such things. One of my friend's with a fully loaded service truck hit one even though he'd been that route many many times before---brain fart that day.

Tools, parts, nuts, bolts etc etc etc scattered over the high-traffic 2 lane city street----he's not done that again!

Anyway thanks for sharing!

them duke boys are at it again...

Brakes don’t do much airborne. He needed to throttle up to level out the nose, lol. When I saw the title I was thinking it was related to the Tesla floating in space. Any pix of this guys re entry?? By the people scrambling in the vid it must have been spectacular.

This happened about 25 minutes from me.

Guy was doing twice the speed limit and scattered parts over a 300m span.
What was left of his Tesla ended up in a school parking lot.


No idea what he was thinking
