Was wondering why that car didnt get flung over in the wind.
Apparently they call it their "TIV2".
Was only when I went looking for a picture of it, that it answered my first question...
I want one! I wonder what kind of gas mileage it gets? Does it come in Candyapple Red or British Racing Green?

Even that 'tornado buster' tank would not last in a really big tornado I suspect.
The video description says the wind speeds were anywhere from 150 to 175 mph, until the tornado ripped the instruments off of the top of the vehicle.
The guys who shot this video are lucky to be alive. Others will try to repeat this stunt and won't be so lucky. Only real scientist should go anywhere near a tornado. Not thrill seekers.

As a spotter for more than 20 years and a first responder I say this...these guys were not advancing anything but themselves....they were trying to get awesome footage...thats it....they tried to outrun the tornado..and lost.
