In this Sunday’s (4/8 9PM ET/PT) car crazy episode of MYTHBUSTERS, Adam and Jamie try to reinvent the wheel, while Kari, Tory and Grant tackle tandem driving myths.
Adam and Jamie design the world’s first square wheel kit, assembled from lightweight steel and tire tread, to test the theory that after a certain speed a car with square wheels will ride just as smoothly as it would with circular ones. But can MYTHBUSTERS get to the root of the square, and find that mythical speed?
Meanwhile, Tory, Kari and Grant recreate a scene from the movie Date Night, when a car crash results in two cars being attached at the bumpers. First, they must create a double car monstrosity, but connecting two cars bumper to bumper isn’t as easy as you might think. Can two conjoined cars even move, let alone achieve the turbo charged tricks they set out to try?
