smoke and mirrors right?
..that allow the driver to alter the ride height at will. These systems range from simple to complex and are usually measured by the number of hydraulic pumps (Generally 2 to 4) used to control the various hydraulic combinations that ultimately produce a specific motion from the vehicle. These pumps are powered by multiple batteries installed in a rack in the trunk of the vehicle. The speed at which the car lifts depends partly on the voltage generated by these batteries, which can range from 24 all the way up to 124 volts. The most common motions are dipping/raising the four corners of the vehicle (referred to as corners), dipping/raising the front or rear of the vehicle (front, back), dipping/raising the sides of the vehicles (side to side), and lowering/raising the vehicle as a whole (pancake). A skilled switch operator can manipulate his controls (hitting switches) to raise one wheel completely off the ground (3-wheel motion), or to hop one end of the car completely off the ground

Thunderbird trivia: apparently no-one wanted to ride in Thunderbird 3 as someone had jammed a Busted CD into the cd player.
much like i hope you'll pretend i didn't know who the driver of Thunderbird 3 is
the one in 5 was so shit!
Do you reckon the others used to take the piss out of him?
"Ahhh you're shit, stuck up in space on yer own, whilst we save everyone from collapsed bridges and cave-ins. LOSER."
and use one of those samples of women screaming (like Dave Clifton in Partridge) to make it seem like Tracy Island was full of girls, and he was stuck up in space with nothing but a Joe 90 jigsaw for company.
