Engineering math question for you
Oh, I see his point now. Like a space craft in stable, near-earth orbit. If it accelerates enough, it will escape earth's gravity and go off into outer space.
Assume a car has zero aero lift or down force. How fast would it have to go to "lift off" like the space ship?
On my '70 Dodge Dart the answer was 140mph, but I think that was aero-lift! Lucky to have survived!
