We were glued to ESPN for the X Games in Los Angeles this week to see daredevils from all around the world risk their lives for our entertainment.
But nothing - and we mean nothing - was as cool as the Hot Wheels Double Dare Loop.
When we were growing up we always dreamed of one day driving a car through a loop the loop like our toys were able to - but we didn't think it was actually possible.
But Tanner Foust and Greg Tracy proved us wrong in a big way:
Foust, who hosts the US version of Top Gear, and stuntman Tracy took on the giant orange six story high double loop, modeled on Mattel's Hot Wheels Double Dare Snare toy racetrack set to set a new world record.
Tracy, driving the Team Green car, described it as the "coolest thing I'v ever done".
Meanwhile Foust, who took a medal behind Sebastien Loeb in the RallyCross X Games final, described it as "hardcore".
"The moment when it's go time, the heart rate slows down, the adrenaline goes away and it's a matter of letting it happen," he said.
"That was pretty hardcore: the 7 Gs … I almost felt my chin hit my lap, I think, in the loop," the Team Yellow driver said. "I felt like I was in a toy."
Foust was also the driver who dropped 10 stories down 90 feet of orange track and soars 332 feet through the air to break the world record at the Indianapolis 500 last year.These guys might have the best job ever!
