Jamie and Adam test the myth that a shock absorber can overheat and explode sending the bumper shooting out to 50 feet as a deadly projectile, severely injuring somebody in front of the vehicle. Meanwhile, Grant, Kari and Tory investigate a 500-year-old myth that an arrow fired from horseback will penetrate deeper into the target than when fired from a static position.
