      What is the name of the background music used. In the end

    2. Soulshocks

      I love how genuinely aggravated he was over the Porsche brake complaints.

    3. Mint Ivy

      race cars dont have airbags because there isnt enough room between the driver and wheel and they cant get out as quickly if they need to. They can be set off by minor bumps. You're welcome.

      @<a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="1023">17:03</a> exactly what happened to Dom's dad, but in a more serious and realistically sad note, that's exactly how we lost Roger Rodas and Paul Walker may they R.I.P.( Race in Paradise)...

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="870">14:30</a> the title question is finally asked and answered

    10. A Balakrishnan

      Being ejected out of a car is safer than being trapped in flames by a seatbelt, right? WRONG!!

    11. Ben Aberson

      I love you guys

    12. likenem

      Fun Fact they didn't use female crash dummies until the early 2003 and the ones they do use only weigh 110 pounds. Women are more likely to die in a car accident because of this

    13. Samuel Farrar

      whens the album dropping?

      Doing funny voices while playing the most deadly racing incident isn’t really the best taste

      If I remember correctly sudden hit of little as 4Gs is lethal to human

    45. Mishari Husien

      I'll be waiting...

    46. Trevor Seals

      So, what is better for a street legal race car you don’t mind being uncomfortable in? Is it safe to switch from an air bag to a harness? Is it unsafe to have both In a street car? If your harness does the job doesn’t the air bag just smack you and make everything hurt more? I have so many questions.

    47. Jeremiah Gilleland

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="450">7:30</a> is when he starts talking about seatbelts

    48. J Myers

      I don’t like this title because the video is more informative that the title leads you to believe.

    49. No Way

      Weight to power ratio.

    50. Maxim Ghost

      So ... airbags aren't in race cars for same reason why seat belts weren't in race cars up until the 60s ... they would block driver from leaving a burning car. Mmm ... OK

    51. Yukiz Lim

      No airbags, we die like real man.

    52. Akram

      it's not veloster it's a i20

    53. Gautham Nanda Kishore

      Fucking asoame

    54. RWB Dude

      It’s a I30 N that Hyundai uses in the WRC, not a Veloster but great job on adding that crash 👍🏻

    55. Matthew Keiser

      Love that he went with avenged lyrics, got my vote!

    56. Randy Kudijaroff

      Throw some random 28hz bass notes in there and that'd be a jam!

    57. Bruhbham 77

      They made "pop up up and down head lights" now where's "trapped in flames" ?

    58. YHOONZ Yelp

      Whenever he said c*ckpit it was bleeped lol

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="193">3:13</a> The halo: let me introduce myself

    60. Paul N

      I'm confused how a deployed airbag is going to significantly impair a driver from getting out of the car. Impact, bag inflates, rapidly deflates, driver gets out, ta da.

    64. Derek Bordeaux

      After Dale died Nascar mandated full face helmets

    65. 4dozeneggs

      My guess as a beginner enthusiast: if it catches fire, you'll be stuck, additional weight, and if the car crumples, it'll cause even more crushing

    66. Ghost NSX

      I think why race cars don't have airbags coz they are race cars duhhhhh Bruh don't take it too seriously and don't hate on me

    67. Hunter Bull

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="835">13:55</a> that would have been a fatal wreck without modern safety equipment. It was the same impact Dale made at Daytona but this looked like it had a lot more force.

    68. Adith Subramanian

      The music from <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="458">7:38</a> took me right back to PotatoJet's videos because he uses it on his outros a lot. Took me for a loop when I wasnt expecting that.

    69. Felipe Arimany

      Why didnt u mention the halo

    70. Slimex26

      O hell yea melodeath album!!

    79. Gabriel D'Amours

      I feel like they should put airbags because racing is more dangerous than daily drive

    80. Markus Varusk

      did nolan say ot tonak jesus christ as an estonian i laughed my ass off because you see the guy's name is ott tänak and it isn't pronounced nothing like ot tonak
