A new video by car enthusiast and car blogger Craig Mannheim, who runs the car blog Manheim Auto, has taken the world by storm and earned him an award at this year’s Cars.com show.
“The video’s been viewed more than 50 million times on YouTube and I’ve seen the car’s name and car model more than 200,000 times on Twitter,” he told New Scientist.
“There’s a lot of excitement around it.”
The video shows the car on the streets of New York City in 2015, and then it’s on a test track in the US, where Mannheim says it “just blew everyone away”.
But the video doesn’t show just how fast the car can go, it also shows how it can be a little too quick.
Mannheim explains that if you get behind a red light, the car will be able to go from 0 to 60mph in 3 seconds.
But in this case, the vehicle is running at 180mph and can only go from 5mph to 90mph in under 3 seconds, meaning that in a three-second span, the road will be cleared and you’ll have the time to stop at a red.
But there’s a catch.
The video starts at a slow speed and then speeds up to 60, then it slows down to 45 and then starts to slow down again, leaving the car stuck in the air.
The speed is so fast that it’s almost impossible to move.
“If you want to go fast, you need to be able drive with the speed limit,” Mannheim said.
“This car is actually quite slow to move, and that’s just one of the reasons why I thought, ‘OK, if I could just slow it down a bit’.” The problem with slowing down the car The video ends up showing the car travelling too slowly, so the next time you see the car in New York, you might think it’s going much faster than it actually is.
But it’s actually going too slowly.
“That’s the thing, because the car is going too fast, the speedometer is going crazy,” Mannio said.
If you were driving the car at a slower speed, Mannheim would say, “OK, it’s not going too much faster.”
So he slowed the car down to 30mph, and it’s now going just 30mph.
And when you see it at the same speed, you think, “Oh no, the thing is going to just stop.”
But Mannheim’s speedometer actually shows the speed at which the car was going.
And the car now looks like it’s about half-way there.
“It’s not actually going any faster, it just slowed down a little bit,” he said.
To put this into perspective, the average speedometer reading for the average car is about 20mph.
“You can see the speed indicator is getting really high, which is actually what you would expect,” Mannie said.
So what can you do to stop the car?
“The biggest thing you can do is slow down to 10mph, that’s the speed where you’re supposed to slow to,” Manni said.
But the problem with this is that if the car slows down too quickly, the driver is going about 15mph too fast.
So you end up hitting a red traffic light, and you end of up getting into a crash.
“So if you slow down, that’ll actually be good because the red light won’t go red,” Mannies said.
You can still get a ticket If you get caught in a red, the fine is $250, and if you don’t stop at that point, the tickets are usually for not wearing a seatbelt.
“And if you’re caught, that won’t count,” Mannig said.
And even if you do get caught, Mannie says that you should still try to speed up.
“A speed camera doesn’t see you going anywhere,” he explained.
“Because if the camera’s looking at you at 90,000ft, they won’t see the vehicle slowing down,” he added.
“They will see it accelerating.”
So the key is to speed down and get the speed to a point where it’s just too fast to stop.
“One of the things I like to do is drive in the slow lane,” Mannieg said.
The slow lane, Mannig says, is the one you can’t afford to speed past, so you should try to get to the slow-lane before the red lights.
“To get to that point where the red is going away, you’ve got to be going at about 70mph, so if you can get to 70mph you can slow down,” Mannigo said.
That’s when the best approach is to take the car off the road and let it sit in the middle of the street, waiting for the traffic light to change.
If the light goes red, that means the car should be stopped. “I would
