While driving around to get the windshield cannon achievement, I 'accidentally' crashed head on with another car. To my surprise, I wasn't launched from my car but the other driver was launched from her car. Since we were driving identical cars, the only difference I could tell was that the other driver was chubbier than me.

This leads to my question, does putting on weight have any effect on the chance and distance for a windshield cannoneer?

Are you sure it wasn't because the other driver was moving faster than you? That would be my first guess rather than the weight difference – Lawton Aug 8 '13 at 14:48
@Lawton actually I was probably going much faster than her, since most drivers don't go blazing down the wrong lane of the highway at insane speeds... – l I Aug 8 '13 at 14:49

You still need to bulk up. You are the BOSS. :-) – ヴァイシャリ Aug 28 '13 at 15:57

Windshied canon probablilty is derived from the magnitude of decelaration and the strength of the car you are in, not the mass of the character. (hit hard stuff fast with soft stuff)

this means that upgraded cars reduce the risk of canoning. Enjoy XD

Is there a way to add mass to your character without going to the plastic surgeon? – ヴァイシャリ Aug 28 '13 at 15:56
@One-One In-game mass is never changed, even after tubbing up a plastic surgeon. Also your character cannot gain weight through play. However, it is possible change the characters mass through modding. – DCA- Aug 28 '13 at 21:16
