I'm definitely buying a camber compensator for my swing axle.

WTF! Does anyone have details on what that was? Was it a race? Homeboy that fell out had his Sundays best on.

Nurburgring race track in Germany is not just a race track, it's a toll road, and a public road course. You can sign up to drive it in your vehicle any time you want. It's a 13 mile track, that's open to the public. European's love to test their vehicles to the limits, and show off their driving skills and in some cases their skills in saving a car from an accident, because you can't possibly remember all 127 turns or racing lines. Those video's all look like they are from the 70's or 80's, so I'm sure Helmets and the like weren't exactly high on the list of safety features.

I like how that guy just gets up and casually walks back to his car. Like that's an everday event or something.
Those people in the vert towards the end of the video Shocked . That's nut's trying that in a vert, there were 3 or 4 people in that car.

I was amazed at how well the car's roofs held up to the rollovers. It speaks volumes about the structural integrity of the Beetle. Cool

Watching that I get the impression that the cameraman greased the turn to get that footage.
