Video: Real-Life 'Hot Wheels' Drivers Set World Record at X Games

| by Michael Allen

In Los Angeles, this past weekend, the X Games featured a real-life, 66 foot tall version of the Hot Wheels Double Dare Snare (video below).

The two drivers, Tanner Foust and Greg Tracy, spun through the loop at 52 miles an hour, a speed which subjected them to seven times the normal force of gravity (7 G's) of the earth’s surface.

According to Geekosystem, people have been known to black out at only 4 G’s. Foust and Tracy now hold a world record for the stunt, having surpassed Chinese driver Li Yatao, who previously held the record for a mere 42 foot loop.
