    This wednesday was the Demolition Derby 2 hour special on Mythbusters. One of the myths involved a commercial that dropped a luxury sedan onto an X on the ground from 4000 feet while another luxury sedan raced to the same spot, also 4000 feet away from the X.

    Well the Grant had to do some corner balancing (sort of a racing thing) where they weigh the car and try to get a 50/50 ratio of weight front and back. In order to do this they had a guy come in with special sensors and software. when they showed pictures of the software there was a bird's eye view of a BT/Alt Grimlock on the screen. however that was the only shot of the TF.

    I will do a screen cap later.

    I NEED alt Grimlock! Or MP Grimmy. But yeah, that's pretty cool that they used a TF for an experiment.

    Sweet. I saw a Courtroom show once where they used a few alternators to show how an accident happened.
