X Games Hot Wheels stunt makes world record

Hot Wheels record at 2012 X Games YouTube.com

(CBS News) When boys grow up, their toys get bigger. But the boys over at the X Games may have claim to the biggest toy of all. ESPN's "2012 X Games Los Angeles" was the stage for a Guinness World Record-breaking Hot Wheels display. Ever wonder what a Hot Wheels loop would look like with actual cars? Wonder no more.

Rally car driver Tanner Foust and stuntman Greg Tracy were behind the wheel for this record-setting stunt.

"That was unbelievable," Tracy told ESPN after finishing the loop. "I tell you what, I'm at a loss for words. That was absolutely the coolest thing I've ever done."

According to ESPN, both drivers hit 53-mph on the track and experienced approximately 7Gs going through the loop.

"That was pretty hardcore: the 7 Gs." Foust said after the stunt. "I felt like I was in a toy."
