there are some parts of where i live where there are railroad tracks on the road. they are not being used anymore, so concrete is poured in to fill up, so only the top of the rail is shown. i ride on them (try to put all 4 wheels on it) sometimes and it feels like the car can coast longer.
lol well it can coast as steel doesnt have much friction aginst the tire, its smooth much like driving on a flat sheet of ice. cant really give you a guess cuz noones done it before and there arent many places where there are tracks in the road
well, im in philadelphia and the streets are all 1 way's, and 1 lane roads (to the left and right, are parked cars. theres some streets where there is tracks right in the middle of the road, and i see most cars avoid it by driving a bit left or right of it. the roads are all 100 yards give or take a bit, before a stop sign comes up, thats why my mpg is low since its all city and i dont go over 20 mph.
i think its used to be train tracks or trolley tracks, its just not used anymore. my car can definately go further while im on it
oh yea, has anyone seen the movie "ROCKY"? where he is running at the itlalian market on 9th st, and someone throws him an apple? thats how the streets are like. you can see the railroad tracks where he is running on
