This Mario Kart-Style Experiment Involves Banana Skins And An Audi RS5

In this amusing video from Scumbag Labs, the physics of Mario Kart are tested in the real world...

It’s been a rather serious week, hasn’t it? We had the reveal of the very serious Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. Porsche unveiled ‘Project Gold’, which took a year and a half of fastidious and serious work to build. Oh, and McLaren showcased that 600LT with a serious amount of carbonfibre attached.

What we need then, is some silliness. We need some grown men seeing if banana skins can make a car spin out, just like in Mario Kart. We need Scumbag Labs, the same people responsible for another ‘experiment’ involving a rallycross car and hundreds of litres of washing up liquid, to conduct this highly important test.

Press play and enjoy the well-executed silliness.

CarThrottle is dead. I’ve joined Drivetribe. I mean this was great when I joined 3 yrs ago but at the beginning of this year, it started really, and I mean really go downhill. Ban me if you want, I really don’t give a f*ck, because I have Drivetribe, but CarThrottle, which was once a great site is like a person with stage 4 cancer who knows is dying but ignores it. I’m just here for the ride until the end.

Bear in mind that Drivetribe is losing money almost as fast as Tesla…

Plus the majority of the articles published on here (main ones) are either irrelevant or that nobody wants to see. Some are also VERY lazily written! Flux’s video really summed it up.

Car Throttle. Fix your shit. You’re losing members left and right. You have to be completely blind to not see that this site is dead. If you still want your money (and we know that you’re only doing this for the money) then fix this quick. If not then have fun working a 9-5 job. Don’t think you can run to YouTube either. You’re views are down there. I know you’re struggling. Everyone does. If you can’t even post an article anyone likes or make videos people want to watch anymore then you don’t stand a chance. So many people are being vocal about Thai and you’re ignoring us. You really think that’s what us, the community, wants? Do you realize that we put you where you are? Do you realize that you’re ripping this site apart?. I’m done.

Like on one of my post someone was being kaan kok rude and the response from Qian Li was, this is not tolerable at CarThrottle with no block or ban.

If you are done, then get the hell out of here. You are ruining what is left of this awesome community. Don’t tell Car Throttle how to run a website.

See, everyone. To the owner, CarThrottle is a business. He doesn’t really care about us. Flux made a video on that
