Cars get faster every day, and ever since we started driving them, we've always tried to go faster. But is there a limit to how fast a car can go? We did some math, made some calculations, and talked to some scientists to find out where the barriers are in making a car go faster. So what is the limiting factor? Is it the engine? The tires? You'll have to watch to the end to find out!

  • They said the Sound Barrier (767mph) was impossible..... But it has been crushed multiple times with manned aircraft hitting Mach 6.72 or 4,520 mph and unmanned Mach 9.8 or 7000 mph. Let's not forget science once said if a human went 100mph they wouldn't be able to breath. That was in the 1800's. If a vehicle can generate enough forward momentum, have an ideal surface and use forged aerospace aluminium wheels 1000mph is attainable. Forged aerospace aluminium can withstand the centrifugal force sustained during 1000 mph and then some.

  • Does land speed record require a human driver? Because if human body's limits of how much sustained G-forces it can handle is a limiting factor, wouldn't the obvious solution be to replace it with a drone system? That would also pretty much eliminate the risk of human life loss.

  • So, if I did the math right, 1/2 (3 * 9.8 m/s/s) t^2 = 447 m/s t Then you'd have to maintain 3g acceleration for 30.4 seconds In that time, you would travel 13.59 kilometers (8.44 miles). Double that for the deceleration, and you'd need a perfectly straight and flat track 16.9 miles long. But that's all assuming that a person can handle 30 seconds of 3g force followed by 30 seconds of -3g force. And that the car can provide perfect 3g acceleration and deceleration. And that the car doesn't break, or flip.

  • Wheels are also a problem. Or more to the point how to make a wheel strong enough. If you are going 1600km per hour and your wheels have a circumference of 2m then they would be spinning at about 13,000 rpm. The centrifugal effect would rip almost any material to pieces long before that. One solution is larger circumference wheels for a slower rpm but that means more air resistance and more weight. There will be a balance point where more weight vs less rps is ideal for any material but that will determine the practical limit top speed of any "car". This is also another reason you need thrust based power instead of drive train, because no rubber can get close to that rotation speed. Many top supercars are limited by their tires not their HP or Thrust. A thrust based car can use metal wheels because grip is less important, but even metal wheels are tough to design strong enough to maintain integrity with the centrifugal effect of those land speeds.

  • "Impossible" lol that's a term for quitters. I wonder if there's a way to utilize that "splash drag". I hate math so I never went through engineering school but I'll do it if I have to. Does anyone here know if it makes any sense to take into consideration the possibility of manipulating the "splash drag" ? it sounds to me, like people already do it but it wasn't covered in this video.
