Request from ~SparklySnuggly.

> Rainbow Dash snuggling Fluttershy inside the parked black Mercedes Benz?
Although, the request had to be a little modified. :-)

...И вот так мне начала нравиться эта модель этого года выпуска. А то мне перестали нравиться Мерсы когда их дизаин сменился с "зализанного" на "гранёный".

If the steering wheel is on the right, that (probably) means RD is used to driving on the left side of the road, which would have placed her squarely out of Cadance's way..

But still good picture, awesome car and interesting traffic accident. Use brakes, Rainbow Dash =)

Priceless indeed. The only thing I could brag about is the smoke. It ... just doesn't look like smoke. But I have no idea how to create more realistic smoke. Maybe some youtube- photoshop- tutorial?

Sure. Actually, I need a long time to learn, this picture has a lot of shortcomings. And about the smoke - if I can work something out, I guess I should fix it.

This is really awesome. The paint is just silky smooth and the reflections are just awesome and the level of detail leads me to believe you either referenced a real photo of a crashed merc or you are simply a wizard who knows cars REALLY well (or both...who cares, looks great).
Also the ABS should have kicked in and stopped it from locking....but that's looking into it too much :D

:iconcolt45ws:
colt45ws Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2012
Well. If it really left the road as the third panel indicates AND she jumped the brakes mid-air they may have been locked before it touched down. At which point the ABS wouldnt intervene as it thinks the car is stopped (wheel speed=0). Another possibility is she jammed the gas and went into power-on oversteer. From the first panel its obvious she has disabled traction control.

Nice one, I'll go along with that.
Alternate theory;
RD - "traction control? ABS? That doesn't sound fun." *removes ABS module fuse*
Alternate theory 2, I am looking way too much into one drawing that involves horses driving cars :D

I think no pony is more car-related then her...
Except Hot Wheels maybe, but her name sounds more like toy cars...

Since I've recently learnt that blowing a curtain airbag, rear passenger airbag, two tires and two rims on the passenger side of a 2000 Mercedes E430 costs over 6,000 dollars to repair, I think it is safe to safe that that car in the picture is a total write-off.

On that note; that's a convertible Mercedes. When the car detects an accident, it will usually deploy an anti-roll bar that prevents the occupants from being crushed if the car flips over. It never comes back down until it's taken to a shop. Also, Flutters would've had a passenger door airbag and a dashboard airbag deploy to save her.

Let's omit the shards of glass from the windshield playing their part for the sake of keeping things blood-free (though it takes a lot to completely blow the windshield like that, windshields are sandwiched between two sheets of plastic to prevent glass from going everywhere).

Not trying to dump on the picture, after all, not many people really know about rollbars or metric tons of airbags in a car without working with automobiles for a while. So I'm just throwing a bunch of information out there.

Mercedes and BMW cars are very sophisticated machines. The later models are so accurate that they can report a failing part before it actually becomes a problem.

Of course, all this tech and bells and whistles make them very expensive cars, too expensive to crash lol

Well, a true Mercedes or BMW owner is the kind who has the money to pay for the upkeep of those cars. So to them, large sums of money are not so scary. Sadly, there are too many people in the town I live in who own expensive cars, but are not willing to pay the upkeep. So you end up with an expensive car being treated horribly, which makes the cost of repair even higher.

The same could be said for any car brand connoisseurs. Most notably Alpha Romeo owners, from what I've seen.

And not just folks who aren't willing to pay upkeep, but folks who lose their heads and total their cars trying to look cool.

Most of the people where I live who try to look cool drive crappy old trucks with stupid (or no) exhaust pipes, stupid-sized wheels, and have installed some horrible "chips" that apparently make the engine more powerful. What it is actually is producing a ton of black smoke and slowly destroying the entire engine and tranny. When their vehicles break, they just buy another beaten up truck and repeat the process.

The owners of the higher-end vehicles around here are either just extremely tight and begrudge spending money on maintenance and repairs, or are a rare few of owners who actually have the money to take care of their cars and do so very well.

That's unfortunate. Most folks around here drive trucks, but they like to jack em up and go mudding. But then again, there are a lot of farms near here too.

The really high end stuff is taken care of, there are some really SNAZZY things. There's a guy up in the mountains who owns a Ford GT40, and I about DIED when I saw it. But there are things like BMW that sometimes aren't taken care of, but mostly the older models.
