Rally driver Tanner Foust and Hollywood stuntman Greg Tracy pull an estimated 7G completing the Hot Wheels Double Loop Dare at X Games LA.

“That was pretty hardcore: the 7 Gs … I almost felt my chin hit my lap, I think, in the loop,” Foust said after finishing the stunt in the Team Yellow car. “I felt like I was in a toy.” To avoid passing out from the force of seven times gravity, Foust’s strategy was to “grunt, tighten your core and try to make your eyeballs and veins pop out.”

Metropolis II, built by artist Chris Burden and a team of eight helpers, is a representation of road traffic in Los Angeles. Started in 2006, and still a work in progress, it features 1200 custom-made Hot Wheels cars, 18 lanes, Lego buildings and 13 toy trains.

In “Metropolis II,” by [Burden’s] calculation, “every hour 100,000 cars circulate through the city,” Mr. Burden said. “It has an audio quality to it. When you have 1,200 cars circulating it mimics a real freeway. It’s quite intense.”
