    If your car was struck by lightning, you would prefer it on jack stands rather than tires, right? I mean, the quickest way to get rid of electricity is to give it a ground path and that would be the jack stands, no?

    Even if your car wasn’t on jack stands, at high enough voltage, electricity will pass through anything.

    Bubba lightning isn't "insulated" by tires. The problem is a corvette isn't metal. Faraday's Cage is why lighting normally doesn't destroy cars and fry the people inside. Corvette and other composite cars don't enjoy this effect. Keep up the videos and go Huskers!

    Saw a BMW get hit by lightning in parking lot at work. The strike started the car. Couple mins later flames shot out from inside the glovebox. By time owner dialed 911, it was engulfed and burned to the ground. Once in awhile, it does happen.

    The lack of tires had nothing to do with the damage (tires are steel belted...lightning will not be stopped by about 3/4 inch of steel-reinforced rubber).. The reason people are protected while IN their car is the Gaussian effect. Basically, the entire vehicle becomes a Gaussian surface.

    “These ones.....” you know you’re dealing with some quality intelligence. Then, “the front end is pretty decently messed up.” What the fuck? Listening to the conversation between these two rocket scientists makes everyone significantly DUMBER for having done so.

    The differential on the 05 vette is susceptible to cracking. RPM sells the built diff of a later model but you’ll need an adapter plate fir a few hundred bucks so you can slap it on the 2005 vette.

    My Dad's '09 got struck by lightning while we we out driving. I was along side in our '10 Fusion that also got hit. Both cars were rebooting on the highway at speed. Corvette got lucky, only needed a new wheel speed sensor.

      Oh wow it's almost like you just copied the top comment. He didn't screw anybody apart from a multi million dollar business that has made its money ripping off other people. It's Carmax's job to check the engine and they decided to sell it without telling anyone either.
