    Don't let your brother drive your Atom!

    Or this could happen. Also why to wear a HANS device, watch his neck several times in a row and you will see what I'm talking about.

    Aaron,thanks for posting this. Your brother does NOT have the throttle control you have,which is SO important to driving an Atom successfully. Man,that G-meter goes off the scale at impact (The telemetry is a little ahead of the video)

    The power of an Atom is a terrible thing to waste! Atom owner/operator since 2007. The more you chase perfection,the faster it becomes. John Force for President! (I asked him once in person...he laughed)

    Yes, .. thanks for sharing. That wall was so far away when he left the track, but, skiing on the grass doesn't slow you down much.

    Video marked private now? I assume that was intentional.

    Hmm..I have never seen a video on youtube marked "private". Does it mean you need a password to view it,or the video is not viewable at all?

    not familiar with sliding on grass, but do you think that no brakes would have allowed the car to steer slightly right instead of sliding into wall? i did not have ABS in my first car (civic) and one time in heavy rain i actually let off the brakes fully to try and get the car to turn versus slide.. and it turned and saved my life..
