Re: Heads up! MYTHBUSTERS season premiere tonight at 9 Eastern!

^Uh, they did try a slower approach on the hill as their second try, and it didn't get them quite as far as the faster approach.

I wonder if part of the reason the ride was so rough was because they didn't have inflated tires, just the rubber strips against the metal rim. If they could've designed some kind of square inner tube thing to go around the wheel rims, would that have given a smoother ride? Or would the constant shock of the points hitting the ground over and over just rupture the inner tubes?
