no they didn't. didn't you see the crash into the concrete brick?? the safety cell was so strong. it hardly bent.
I understand what you are saying but understand this from basic grade 10 physics class, the laws of motion:
There exists a set of inertial reference frames relative to which all particles with no net force acting on them will move without change in their velocity. This law is often simplified as "A body persists its state of rest or of uniform motion unless acted upon by an external unbalanced force." Newton's first law is often referred to as the law of inertia.
Observed from an inertial reference frame, the net force on a particle is equal to the time rate of change of its linear momentum: F = d(mv)/dt. This law is often stated as, "Force equals mass times acceleration (F = ma): the net force on an object is equal to the mass of the object multiplied by its acceleration."
Whenever a particle A exerts a force on another particle B, B simultaneously exerts a force on A with the same magnitude in the opposite direction. The strong form of the law further postulates that these two forces act along the same line. This law is often simplified into the sentence, "To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction."
What this all means is basically the largest mass ALWAYS wins. I have a family member who is a paramedic here in BC and he's seen some things that will make your head spin. In an equal mass collision they are very reasonable but place it in one involving a Frieghtliner or even a full size pick up like my dodge and watch out.
Therefore, for me, I would tend to go to the side of caution, esp. if you live in a rural area (aka not a big city), get something a little larger - you can thank me latter.
