Remember when the F-150 SVT Raptor first came out, how some new owners went predictably nuts with with the jumps and then had issues with their trucks?
Ford's Jamal Hameedi went on the record to address the matter at the time. Here's what :
"Basically, the core – the root cause – is that the vehicle is traveling too fast for the obstacle, and the truck is running out of travel. By a large margin. They're going too fast for the obstacle by a large margin."
The guys in the video below demonstrate this. Perfectly.
(FYI, there's some predictably coarse language to be aware of if you're at work, so adjust your volume accordingly.)
Something tells us that prospective owners of the all-new Raptor just revealed in Detroit would do well to not try this at home, either.
