Very cool thing, but I am not sure why you want a powerful car with a very high CG.

Do it for me.
Actually, most of the weight is down low; the engine (a GSXR-1000 btw, not a 1300) is pretty much on the floor, and they've got wheel spacers to widen the track.

So much better than that gutless diesel with the nasty transmission....

Some British company does them too; there's a vid on Youtube of it laying waste to a bunch of cars on the track, and it sounds just like a Formula 1 car on the straights!

Insane, but impressive. I'd like to see it on a track instead of doing these stupid things.

now that is a cool car. imagine driving through a city with everyone laughing at you at the lights cos you drive a smart, then smoking them at the lights :D very impressed it can do donuts without falling over like hammond's van. but as klutch said, it has a low CG

Vids of it have been posted before, but it's still an amazing thing - I want one.

Lol, dread to think what might happen as this happened with a smart tuned to half that.

^It looks as thought the crash was because the tool driving it was going way too fast for the wet conditions. Idiot.

The car in the first video is absolutely awesome, sounds great, looks stupid.
