One sharp BendPak fan brought it to our attention that the MD-6XP scissor car lift was used on last week’s episode of Mythbusters! And it’s pretty appropriate too, considering that in the episode they took apart a Porsche 928 and flipped it around to run BACKWARDS. (What else would you use it for, right?) It’s a test in aerodynamics like we’ve never seen before.
The episode is called “Reverse Engineering,” and it’s available on Amazon to watch right now. For those who don’t want to pay $2 to watch a television show, we were able to also scrounge up an aftershow segment called “The Combustion Chamber,” where hosts Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage give behind-the-scenes insight into that week’s episode.

It’s AAPEX time again! We hope you’re able to join us in Las Vegas for AAPEX 2010 but if not, don’t worry! We’ve got you covered with some pictures straight from the show.
