Stunt Driver Nails World Record Jump In Life-Size Hot Wheels Car

I remember how i use to have like a million "Hot Wheels" cars with huge tracks, i use to always wonder, "What if i was in this little car, going up and down the tracks, how would it feel?". Well, in this video you are about to see, this guy definitely knows how it feels. Every kid who's ever launched a Hot Wheels car across the floor or off a table will have a special appreciation for Tanner Foust's record jump in a life-size Hot Wheels car.

Foust, who was recently revealed as the driver of the Team Hot Wheels Yellow Car, broke the record for a jump by a four-wheeled vehicle with a mark of 332 feet (101 Meters) prior to this past weekend's Indy 500. He bested the previous record of 301 feet set by Johnny Greaves in 2009.

If it wasn't already clear, "Top Gear" co-host Foust has some major cajones. He not only jumped a football field in a car, but he did it in a life-size toy car made for kids. Can you imagine fighting a life-size Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robot? The beginning of Foust's attempt dropped him 90 feet--or 10 stories--down an orange track before he went airborne. Someone ought to check Tanner's pants for pee. Maybe that's why it's the Yellow Car.
