    That is an extreme drop test of the suspension the buggy may survive but what about the spine of the driver
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    You must keep in mind that the vehicle is traveling forward at a high rate of speed, 100 mph +/- 20, over very rough terrain. With that type of suspension which stays near the compressed end until you go into the air. The suspension drops then all the travel is used to keep the race car flat. The faster you go the smoother the ride is. I spent 15 years offroad racing and the team I was with has won many races including the Baja 1000 more than once...
