    Video: Dacia jump cures human boredom
    http://www.caradvice.com.au/109467/v...human-boredom/

    Some people will go to extraordinary lengths just to see how robust the human body is, while others are just plain bored and need something to do. A Dacia car jump video recently uploaded onto YouTube outlines both of these traits very well.

    Weíre not sure what other result the drivers had in mind with this ridiculously large car jump, but it seems tarmac is a lot softer in some parts of the world.

    It is extremely remarkable that both of these drivers got out of this one unharmed. Just one question though, what was the point of the co-driver?

    Wow, a workcover inspector would have a field day. Love the crowd control, but hey at least he stopped right in front of the emergency vehicles!

    I wonder how much work it was to then crush all the boxes they intended to land on.

    I presume the passenger (I didn't see the drivers swap over during the event) was there to maintain some balance in the car during its flight.

    Had I been offered such a role I would have offered to buy a crash test dummy for the passenger seat.

    At least the roll cage did its job.

    Mmmm.....role of the co-driver.....

    How about some evening of the weight distribution left to right so it didn't roll mid-air...

    Mind, 2 bags of cement would have done the same thing...

    Roll of co-driver, someone to hear you squeal like a girl before hitting the tarmac.....
    Every day when I wake up I reach up in the darkness with my eyes shut and if I cannot feel anything that resembles a wooden lid I know it will be a good day. No lid today.

    I notice the co driver didn't get out...

    And did the driver do the sign of the cross just before heading off? @ 8 second mark

    What about the parking angle of the car @ 19 seconds? Talk about uncharitable, right across the 'runway'!

    They should have used a Dauphine - my experience with them air born is they land nice and level ! Maybe not over that distance though.
    cheers,

    Everything was ok with both persons, driver and copilot; the copilot just had, at the time, few ribs broken, but was not so badly injured. It was, as film title says, in 1995.... in Romania; I saw this on TV at that time.....
