    I know this will bring up something different

    Not wanting to start a thread about the plane and treadmill

    I have to ask this though...If a car is moving ...and is a front wheel drive can it go on a moving truck completely? If it also is a rear wheel drive can it do it also?

    I saw this on a movie and I was just curious

    Say a truck is moving at 50 mph. If a car is moving at even 51 mph, it doesn't matter how fast the wheels are moving as long as the car has the speed. If you want to look at wheel speed, there will be an instant when the wheels spin for the front wheel drive version especially, but because the car is already moving faster, it will keep going up the ramp. I think this was done on mythbusters if anyone has a link to a video.

    If you've ever seen knight rider there is no need to even ask this question.

    I can't see how this would work for a rear wheel drive car. I have problems even getting ours up the ramps to change the oil.

    All that matters is going faster than the ramps you are going up. And as far as the ramps for oil, the reason you have trouble might have something to do with not wanting to go past the ramps. You don't have nearly as much of a problem with a 50 ft semi that you are only traveling a couple of mph faster than.
