Hot Wheels Loop breaks world record at X Games

It was a Guinness World Record-breaking weekend at the X Games.

Rally car driver Tanner Foust and stuntman Greg Tracy achieved the impossible as they conquered the Hot Wheels Loop, six stories high, at 7Gs and 53-mph.

WCS worked on the Hot Wheels Loop before the X Games weekend, however.

In order for the loop to make it to the games and the pre games test site, it needed to be transported. WCS worked with the loop’s carrier to route and permit several loads carrying the loop. The loads ranged in sizes up to 17-feet wide.

The Rock: After the Dust Settles

Sunday marked the opening day of Michael Heizer’s “Levitated Mass” exhibit at LACMA, and what seemed to be the end of the road for some.

While the exhibit will continue to attract tourists and media from all over, the journey WCS Permits, its sister company, Right of Way Inc., and several other companies and government agencies embarked on to see this project through came to a halt.

For over two years, permits were obtained, routes and streets were surveyed, road closures were negotiated and the move of the 340-ton buy naltrexone online boulder, which had loaded dimensions of 21-feet, 10-inches tall, 30-feet, 6-inches wide, and 275-feet long was made possible.

WCS and Right of Way worked closely with the carrier, Emmert International obtaining various permits so the load could safely begin and end its 105-mile, 11-night journey from Riverside County to LACMA.

The load only traveled at night at slow speeds of 7 mph or less.

Opening Day at the LACMA exhibit marked new beginnings, but a successfully completed project as well.

WCS brings hot wheels action to the X Games

This weekend racing records will be attempted at the X Games in Los Angeles.

But before the six-story Hot Wheels double vertical loop could test driver’s talents, the loop needed to be safely transported to the games.

Rock almost ready to roll…again

This time the rock won’t set out on a 105-mile journey, but it will be placed and set at the LACMA for museum goers to see this summer.

As the season draws near, artist Michael Heizer’s Levitated Mass, which consists of the 340-ton boulder transported from Riverside County to LA last month, and a 456-foot-long slot constructed at LACMA is getting ready for all to see. LACMA visitors will walk along the slot, which descends to fifteen feet deep, taking them underneath the rock before ascending back.

Heizer conceived the artwork in 1968, but it took him some time to find the right rock, and took over two years to transport it.

WCS and Right of Way worked tirelessly with various agencies to obtain permits and close down various streets while the load was in transport.
