If altitude affects a cars performance, how high can you get? can we modify Jer's Chevy Camaro SS to reach outer space? in this episode of Bumper 2 Bumper we are going to throw Ford, Tesla, and Moon Buggy parts at Jeramiah's beloved catfish to try and get it up our theoretical road to space. It turns out that running out of oxygen isn't the only thing we have to worry about...

  • Forced induction system like supercharger can help squeeze more oxygen into the engine to compensate with the altitude.. 😉

  • I realize this video is a week old so I'm guessing Donut isnt looking at comments anymore, but I do have a question: With regards to your Tesla Camaro you guys said that internal resistance increases as temperature decreases. I was under the impression that resistance actually decreases as temperature drops. Which is why the temperature of absolute zero is the point at which there is no electrical resistance in any given circuit. Wouldn't resistance get closer and closer to that point as temperature drops? Honestly I should say, I am a welder and I've been working on cars since I was about 8 years old. I am in no way a physics buff/engineer like Jeremiah here, so I'm not trying to come off as some guy that gets off on correcting people. On the contrary, I am genuinely curious that I've been thinking incorrectly all these years now. Anyway, if anyone from Donut still checks comments on week old videos feel free to let me know, I assume you guys know more about this than I do.

    - Russ14n -- Russ14n -پیش ماه
  • There are a few things wrong fact-wise with this video. The most torque in a production vehicle isn’t the Ford F-350 with 1,050 ft/lb, it’s the Dodge 3500 with the Cummins HO, making 1,075 ft/lb. Also, diesel likely isn’t going to gel if an engine is running. Change a fuel filter after a motor has been running; the diesel is pretty hot, but not scalding. Also, there is such thing as anti-gel additive and winter diesel fuel.

  • I didn't watch the video and I know the answer. No because engines require oxygenated air to create internal combustion. Also because i this watched this obscure television show I'm sure NONE of you have heard of where these 3 old British dudes try and fail to drive over a volcano in the Andes in ancient 4wd vehicles.

  • What about electrical vehicles? Say you can hve in the vehicle a tanks of oxygen that are used for a very small engine to keep battery power alive for continuous tq plus some type of heater for the battery? I guess I didn’t finish the whole video to comment correctly lol

  • Jeremiah you crazy to come up with this. However, your Tamaro wouldn't make it that far on batteries because the more weight you have, the more energy you need and adding more batteries adds to the weight which again needs more energy" its a never ending loop so prepare to drive with a power cable qll the way from earch
