Lowrider goes over – Click above to watch video after the jump

We’ll admit that we’re not exactly up-to-date on the rules or goals of a lowrider hop off. It’s been awhile since we dusted off the Monte and threw down, but the last time we checked, flipping the car wasn’t part of the plan. Unfortunately, the gentleman in the video after the jump must have missed that memo. In the quest for ever more height for his remote-controlled monstrosity, his Chevrolet goes shiny side down after a few epic bounces. Impressively enough, the car doesn’t flip the easy way. Oh no. Instead of just rolling over and playing dead, the big coupe goes vertical before falling on its head.

After watching the car pancake itself, we’re suddenly fans of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s new focus on rollover protection. Hit the jump to check out the video for yourself.
