X Games Double Loop Dare Sets Guinness World Record: Video 2
Posted by Kurt Ernst in Automotive, Guinness World Record, Hot Wheels, Kurt, Stunts, video, X Games on 07 2nd, 2012

As kids, we’d bet that all of us amassed a pretty serious collection of Hot Wheels cars and track. Loop-the-loops and jumps were standard fare for Hot Wheels, and the entertainment value was generally determined by the risk of crashing violently (or the risk of terrifying the family cat). As kids, we probably wondered why no one did stunts like this in real life, too.

Hot Wheels wondered that as well, so it decided to enlist the help of drivers Greg Tracy and Tanner Foust to set a new Guinness World Record for a double loop-the-loop. In case you were wondering, each loop was 60 feet tall, and falling upside down from a height of six stories would not have ended well. You can bet there was a lot of planning (and very little margin for error) that went into the making of this record attempt.

If you’ve ever owned Hot Wheels of your own, the stunt is worth watching. We’d advise against trying this on your own, even if you do have the resources to build a specialized stunt car and a backyard ramp that dwarfs your house. If you really want to duplicate this at home, Hot Wheels would prefer you to buy its Team Hot Wheels Double Dare Snare track set, available at toy retailers everywhere. Failure with the Hot Wheels set may not be as spectacular, but neither will the medical bills.

New Viper Hot Wheels Car Gives Another Glimpse of 2013 SRT Viper 5

Once again, the new 2013 SRT Viper is speculated from a Hot Wheels die cast car. I have to say, this latest find by the Viper Club looks like it could be the real-deal in terms of the over-all design of the new 2013 Viper. Of course the scale size is way off (obviously), but Hot Wheels cars are known to be exact replicas of the production car that it represents.

From the looks of previous teaser outlined-images from SRT, this Viper Hot Wheels car is very convincing. SRT is doing such a good job keeping the new 2013 Viper under wraps, we sadly resort to looking at new Hot Wheels cars for a true sneak-peak at what the new Viper should look like.
