    Corsair Voyager/Survivor Vs Armoured Personnel Carrier!

    OK, the Voyager survived being wheel-spun by a performance motor, but can it's rubberized casing fair as well against a British-Built 15 Ton Animal of an APC ? PLUS, will the metal-skinned Survivor make it through ? Check for yourself...
    Watch the show.

    Re: Corsair Voyager/Survivor Vs Armoured Personnel Carrier!

    Nick was ecstatic charging around the fields in this high-powered, 15-ton APC (more footage of this later!)...

    ...but his real glee came from seeing if the Corsair products were up to the challenge of the awesome PSI generated by this ex-army-beast's solid metal tracks

    Personally, I was SHOCKED by the result on the Voyager - will you be ?



    ...of course, more to follow...

    Re: Corsair Voyager/Survivor Vs Armoured Personnel Carrier!

    What happened when you got it back to test it?

    ... Also what happened with the old sticks? Can we see some high resolution photos?

    Guys - reason I am asking is I am so jealous I wasn't there - I was off in the USA....!

    Re: Corsair Voyager/Survivor Vs Armoured Personnel Carrier!

    LOL great stuff guys!

    So where's the test results?

    Time to blow stuff up me thinks
    My only concern is should I hide my true identity? A costume maybe?

    0iD: Plus weeing in it every now & again does it good
    scaryjim: 10" is just a little large to hold comfortably in one hand, which makes it a lot harder to tap, swipe and generally interact with.

    *Applauds!*

    Haha that's been one of the best ones yet i think! Pity Nick gave a little of the game away by mentioning that it'd been previously shot with a shotgun (i assume then that it survived )

    He was the last time him and I were in an APC, well he was until I shot him at close range with an Airsoft gun when we made a sudden turn

    Re: Corsair Voyager/Survivor Vs Armoured Personnel Carrier!

    I think you would have got the same effect by getting an angry dog to bite it, as per my suggestion in other thread.

    plus it probably would've saved editing time if you told that blurry bloke to "bugger off were filming". if he didn't want to be on camera he would have got out the way.
    unless you never thought of that, thats what i'm here for... i'm always thinking of wierd or stupid things to do and now finally i've got a place to talk about them.. (insert evil manic laugh) and by what i think i have worked out you lot might be mad enough to try them??

    (i'm currently suffering cold sweating and blocked nose and a bit delirious so bear with me for the next week or so)

    Ton is not a misspelling of tonne, they are two different measurements. 1 tonne is usually taken to mean the metric ton, 1 tonne = 1000 kilograms, whereas 1 ton is usually taken to mean the imperial ton (short ton), 1 (short) ton = 2000lbs = 907 kilograms (correct to 3 S.F.)

    On topic - loved the test, want the results now, always good to know if you can accidentally drop your memory stick under an APC (i know i do it all the time ) Look forward to seeing more.

    More crazy violence on the sticks, I love it!

    For the next one you should put one into a in-sink garbage disposal.

    Just highlighting this one cos it's something we've been on about for ages... the problem we have is that not all kit works with all the other kit plus some stuff is better than others in certain situations etc. And with the microphones alone costing in excess of £600 and then the tx/rx packs are more on top of that, it's easy to make a seriously expensive mistake.

    However, as usual, we're always working to improve so keep watching.

    Oh, and this series... that's the tame start... it's gets MUCH better!

    And um.. Nemz0r, sorry bud but you know how they say perfection is not achievable? Not that I'm being pedantic but 'fare' is also correct:
    –verb (used without object)
    7. to experience good or bad fortune, treatment, etc.; get on: He fared well in his profession.
    8. to go; turn out; happen (used impersonally): It fared ill with him.

    Full definition here: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/fare

    Sorry dude!

    Any news on whether the Voyager works?

    Have to say, this mini-series really is good. Any plans for a feature length DVD release

    Yes. The 432 weighs 15.3t (tonnes). 907*15 = 13,605, 1000*15 = 15,000. Tonne is closer! XD
    ps. Nick will we see the sticks versus that beastly collection of automatic weapons and shotguns seen in the trailer?
