The thickness of the tube walls does a lot less for rigidity than you would think and quickly causes sag from all the added weight. Then you have to slow down considerably from all the added mass that can’t be accelerated /decelerated as quickly. A majority of the strength is in the surface and rapidly diminishes as you move in.
