Because your car has high durability. Some of the faster cars in this game basically implode when they touch the wall. Heck, I've even been crushed by one of those big rigs on Survival. Rammed it on the side and exploded.

Not sure but I'm guessing that hitting walls is the one thing that can hurt and kill you apart from powerplays. To me it sounds like a counter of some sort. --- Desktop: Q9300 @ 2.5GHz, HD4870 512MB, DDR3 2GB, Windows 7 pro 64-bit Megaman Starforce 3 Red Joker FC: 0861 1473 6699.
well speed and force has a lot to do with it, I've survived pretty hard impacts on walls with light cars. any thing that would basically bring you to a dead stop i guess... getting sandwiched between any object besides the other racers , side swiping the wall hard with fast light cars, head on collisions with objects, etc... --- Wow that was more intense than that time i forgot how to sit down...
