    i think it is causing more rolls than would normally be experienced, even with that erratic driving. rolling is part of the hobby and it allows us to call it exercise. many of us have had late night visions of a flipper mechanism but few have actually bothered because it would take more effort than running out and flipping it ourselves. if you want to try it, go ahead. it's your money in the end. i will say that it has one apparent flaw, it cant correct the car if it is laying on its side.

    I would just add a tall rollbar that way the car is very unlikely to stay on its top. Its one thing I love about my buggy. Due to it being very narrow with a tall wing, even when I do roll it about 80% of the time it ends up on its wheels.

    looks like it causes more problem than it fixes.....

    I remember playing with an Air Hogs car once that went really fast. It had a plastic semicircle on the top attached to the chassis that always flipped back over. You could make one out of a different material, but it is an idea.

    Wow, that video in the first post is quality entertainment. What a ridiculous product.

    You can get antenna tubes that do this. I didn't reply to this thread before because I was sure that someone would have mentioned them in the first reply...

    Your mileage may vary of course, especially if they are heavy trucks...

    while I agree that the added weight will cause more rollovers....and that rollovers make for some good exercise, I think the OP did a pretty good job. fairly clean and looks to work well.
    Only question, does the system reset? Or do you have to drive it back to you to reset the flipping mechanism?
