We spent the day at Disney’s MGM Studios Theme Park. The highlight of the day was seeing “Lights, Motors, Action”, a live auto stunt show. It was really cool, seeing all kinds of crazy car stunts performed right there in front of your eyes. The show is based around the filming of a huge car chase in a movie. In addition to watching cars peeling out with unbelievable precision all over the set and seeing some great jumps and explosions, we got to learn a few cool things about how the stunts are done. For example, we learned that the “hero” car is actually a few different cars. Most of the high-speed backwards driving is performed by a vehicle customized so that the driver is actually facing rearwards. We also learned that to provide the torque necessary for the stunts, all of the car engines were replaced by high-powered motorcycle engines and that most of the “drifting” was facilitated by modified emergency brakes that don’t lock so they can be applied and released very quickly.
