Carrera26, sure the car might handle it 5 times in a row, but i bet the driver can't. haha. i should've said, "HOLY BACK PAIN!"

They say that as long as they land evenly on all 4 tires, it's surprisingly mild and not uncomfortable at all. Land unevenly, and that's a whole different story.

If you watch closely, you can see them gun it right before the launch to bring the nose up and keep it level. If they mistime that, it gets real uncomfortable when the car lands on it's nose...
Don't waste another minute waiting on parts, or anything else. Just get out there and start racing! You will suck at first, and you will be slower than many other cars, but the only thing you will regret is not starting earlier...
