Lets see.... useful situations:

Visualize this with me....

Curbs,
Spike Strips,
Parking lot no-entry guards,

and any other situations that require you get get out of the way quickly. Like a rear-end impact? Just hit the switch and your airborne! Soft impact and flip the vehicle over then drive home to live another day.

Very creative. I wonder if it can jump small fences or draw bridges!

Honestly not impressed. That's a competion vehicle w/ no drivetrain or interior either I'm guessing. It's just an exercise in engieering to see who can jump the highest. Might as well be a cardboard box w/ 4 wheels.

Your right but whats amazing to me is if I drove a little truck off a flat bed it would be seriously messed up.This thing just keeps on going.What would be really cool is to see a dressed out duelly do that ,I'll bet its coming next.
nothing I'd want on my vehicle but its fun to watch....If I was at a show and walked by ,I'd stop and watch for a couple minutes.....and wait for something to break...

I dont know why, but destroying a car has always been fun,whether its with a sledge hammer,bullets ,dynamite....even the myth busters are always thinking of new ways to do it,but when they use air they're usually dropping a car out of a plane....
I'll bet if anyone of us ever got one of those controllers in their hands ,it would put a big grin on our face....
