Hot Wheels Stage Placement Theory:
objective is the place the car in such a way that it will travel down the slalom as far as possible before first contact with
a side rail. The sooner the contact, the greater the angle of impact and consequently the greater the angle of refraction.
This can cause the car to eventually oscillate back and forth so violently that it can pitch itself over the railing.
This is why a particular car may make several passes without incident and then suddenly pitch and roll. It's
all about placement!
