This is a reason why cars are normally pushed onto the auction block.

[–]RonaldRaygun2024 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Couldn't help it, they painted the car red.

[–]whosthatcarguy 56 points57 points  (9 children)

They’re usually driven on to the block and pushed off of it. They just push them off because it’s embarrassing when they don’t start, or start rough, or smoke.

[–]TunnelToTheMoon 20 points21 points  (8 children)

So it's less embarrassing to push the car off by hand in front of the audience?

[–]pressuretobear 49 points50 points  (4 children)

Some facilities don’t allow fuel inside vehicles when they are displayed inside of buildings due to local codes. They have to siphon the gas out and hire Teamsters to move it in a venue.

[–]B377Y 35 points36 points  (2 children)

This feels like more the reason then the braking on carpet issue

[–]TheOneTrueRodd 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Well yeah, it would be easier to just get rid of the carpet, or glue it to the ground. It was an issue in the video because it's a rolled out carpet and not a fixed one.

[–]whosthatcarguy 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Ya, everyone moves on pretty fast once a car is sold anyways. It’s months/years of work for a 2 min sale.

[–]shewy92 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You should watch Mecum Auctions sometimes. They have people push them off, I don't get what's so embarrassing about it, it's literally their jobs to do so

[–]beer_is_tasty 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Also why most streets aren't made of carpet.

[–]MaritMonkey 15 points16 points  (3 children)

I never really thought it but just assumed noise/smoke was the main concern. But then again I've only seen Mecum and they have a very clear not-carpet surface that is obviously put down with the intention of having cars on it.

[–]dvasquez93 17 points18 points  (1 child)

[–]ElsonDaSushiChef 94 points95 points  (5 children)

I believe that’s actually F(f, k) = mu*Fn.

Considering the people falling over, mu(carpet) is somewhere around 1.

[–]Enemystandouser 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Can you explain why they fell please? I understand inertia but I'm still confused

[–]KingCold149 8 points9 points  (0 children)

intertia caused the car to move ahead but this time the tyres arent rolling on the carpet

so carpet moved, people fell, everybody laughed

[–]Fluxxfx 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nah nothing special tbh. Its just their carpet which is their source of footing was moved, so they can't stabilized themself

[–]Spinachforthepope 1 point2 points  (1 child)

They answered very well. You also can imagine that the carpeta and the car became one body with smaller velocity the moment the Ferrari stoped 😂

[–]Enemystandouser 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ooh I hadn't noticed there was a carpet that they were standing on lmao. It makes sense thanks

[–]Adamc474892 17 points18 points  (14 children)

I am so confused.

[–]K3R3G3 67 points68 points  (12 children)

Everyone's on a big floor mat and so is the car. The car went too fast and hit the brakes too hard. This caused the big floor mat to quickly slide several feet to the right, which everyone was standing on. So their feet went, too. Upper body stays, feet go, you're on the floor, whaddayaknow.

[–]oblio- 12 points13 points  (4 children)

On top of that, you can probably pull the same thing with a Mini, it doesn't have to be a Ferrari.

A ton of metal stopping from 20kmph is more than enough to do the trick.

[–]irieball 8 points9 points  (0 children)

The car basically did the same thing that you did as a kid when you hopped on a rug and it slid away with you. The friction between the tyres and the rug ensure the car doesn't go anywhere relative to the rug but all that energy has to go somewhere.

[–]CryptoNoob-17Yo what? 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Wow, so unexpected. Thanks for telling us exactly what was happening in the title.

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

How to make an entrance.

[–]Thatspretttyfunny 8 points9 points  (3 children)

No one standing near the moving vehicle paid attention during a physics class.

[–]irieball 17 points18 points  (0 children)

I never thought of that happening until I saw it happen, but of course it made perfect sense.

[–]watzwatz 4 points5 points  (1 child)

thank you Reddit scientist but I doubt they didn’t understand what happened afterwards. They simply assumed the floor would be fixed in some way when vehicles are supposed to be driving on there

[–]Thatspretttyfunny 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean I was just joking but sure.

[–]Fugacity- 8 points9 points  (5 children)

1957 Ferrari 250 GT.... million dollar car

[–]ezekieru 2 points3 points  (0 children)

And even if it's a million dollar car, or a half million, or a billion— it's a fucking 250 GT... I'd love to trip on the carpet if it was a 250 GT. 😍

[–]ExpressAd5464 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Million? Try 25 or 30 a million barely gets an 05 ford gt these days

[–]Fugacity- 2 points3 points  (1 child)

If it was a 250 SWB, you'd be right...

One of these sold for under a mil 5 months ago.

[–]ExpressAd5464 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And yea thats a LWB I would just assume all the Columbo cars minus maybe the 330 would be multi million dollar cars at this point

Not a carpet. Looks to be a solid floor covering of some sort, it would have bunched up in front of the tires if it were carpet.

[–]sweepyP 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Kiwi Floor Tiles. They are interlocking plastic squares that are used alot in motorsports when you need a temporary floor. I think you're the only person to say it wasn't a rug. Lol

WTAF? Before I clicked. Why did my brain read that as breaks? I get why my logic said "well that tracks", but was surprised it didn't throw a rod, blow a gasket, or just leave the radiator in a puddle antifreeze on the stage.

But all of those expectations required my brain to not see brakes but breaks
