Did anyone see mythbusters on pikes peak? They had 5 miles of matchbox car track laid out and as it warmed it stretched another 2 miles in length?
DUDE... google search mythbusters, matchbox track.
the track was 1/4 mile, and it was lake tahoe that's like 1900% off...
anyone who believed it is ignorant
and should have searched for 10 minutes.
find me 5 threads that say the track was in pikes peak and 5 miles long
