I don't think our atv would keep up for too long. Can you imagine how smooth that surface has to be?
I'm imagining what happens what you have to sneeze . . . :wow:
What gives me goosebumps is thinking back on the crap I pulled as a teen behind the wheel. He was probably safer pulling that stunt than we were in a damn Oldsmobile. :grrr:
Intense. I'm thinking...wow...all it takes is one thing to go wrong - one bolt loosens up, an errant turn of the wheel, anything....
Agreed. Even w/ good design, safely traveling on ground at those speeds requires a nice bit of luck.
300's more than enough to kill you...always has been. This from 1967. I remember when it happened quite well:
Both Donald Campbell and his father, Sir Malcolm Campbell held both land and water speed records during their lives. If the history of this sort of pursuit interests you, I'd highly recommend reading about these two remarkable men. Rick
You gotta wonder what a helmet will do for you at those speeds. I guess it is a requirement to wear one but at those speeds....if something happens..... forget about it.
