If you click on the title of the vid clip you can watch it. It's a video of an Expy being rolled over with crash-test dummies flying all over the place.

I've seen it in real life and I deal with it on a day to day basis. Crash-test dummies don't bleed and spill their organs all over the place when they get squished... real people do.

Thanks, was able to see it. Looks like a fun ride!

No seat belts.

No air bags that I could see either

If you watch the video carefully, the expy stays together fairly well. What makes it so dramatic is the lack of seatbelts. I'm not an expert, but I think a seatbelt would have probably saved a life in this extreme rollover crash, but that is the purpose of the video, to show the importance a seatbelt plays, even in a high speed multiple roll over crash. I wish there was a link to the same experiment with the dummies seatbelted in.

Well you could be the first to make that video, load up your Expy with belted in dummies and go flip it.

Yeah too bad that's the older models that were a lot tougher than ours.

I did that in an F-150 extended cab. Rolled 3 1/2 times. Ended up on the roof. We were going about 55 mph. Thank God we both had seat belts on. I was the passenger. I can still remember how hot the roof was getting as we rolled and slid. We went over passenger side first and it sucked!! First roll was pretty slow. The second 2 1/2 were a lot faster. After the first roll I though damn we are OK. Then is was s#!t we are going again. My side was flat with the door jam. I did a lot of ducking. I climbed out the driver side rear window. My co-worker was stuck in the truck because he could not get the seat belt undone. We both walked away with minor injuries.

Not a roll-over, but a side-impact crash test on the 07 up Expy/Navis...
