I have seen that poor video.

They were using a D1 with the SRS Airbags not working!! They didn't deploy cause probably the unit was not renewed every 10 years like it should have, but I cannot prove that the D1 here was at least 10 years old.

Plus, I sorta diss on these tests, cause they are "can only do it once" sorta things (Mythbusters style) and don't have controls or variable tests.

But it does show that newer designs can save lives. That poor D1 took one for the team.

I agree that was a test. Real world I've seen Discos take hits and come back very held up. Now if that Disco had a RTE bumper man o man the Van would toast. That video doesn't prove shit to me. I still feel safe in my truck and feel that is a strong bulit truck.
