Basically, they take a compact US car, equip it with RC gear, and then take it out in the desert and destroy it with several flips and rollovers - took a few shots to completely knacker the thing. External and onboard video. Good for a laugh but I wouldn't bother at 56K.
It doesn't quite sound as good as the time when Jeremy Clarkson (one of our greatest motoring journalists ever, we have similar tastes
) went for a trip in a Hughes 500 Defender equipped with a minigun and it chased an R/C 'vette acroos an expanse of desert. Took him a shedload of rounds before he managed to hit it (maybe the chopper pilot wasn't too hot, I dunno). But it was an impressive way to destroy a car!
Perhaps he should have used an AH-64D Longbow Apache. It's chaingun isn;t as rapid fire as a Gatling principle minigun, but the rounds are larger
and the Apache is a more accurate weapons platform.
And, um...like...nice job on mayo, froggy. interesting tsrf considers himself one of "us".
Re: hating "us", goverment, presidents, are not the people. The majority rules, but is not always correct, moraly or logicaly. Same for the French, rejecting hamburgers 'cause they ain't french is stupid.
