This is one of those videos that you will absolutely need to see to believe. This 'toy car' isn't playing around!

Just added to my Christmas list. :-)
What kind of car is it? It looks long like a skate blade or something...
Doesn’t show the guy in the center after the car really gets going. He must be dizzy.
Glad there is a fence. It would be a shame if it went airborne and took someones head off.
"I could beat it, turn it loose"
That’s amazing. I guess those sort of cars must be pushed first or launched. Oh, how to weaponize this fine little American toy? Looks like the circular momentum is necessary in order to overcome gravity and inertia, then build up velocity. Maybe with a wider circle to travel, even greater speed could be achieved, provided the rubber tires don’t start to melt first.
IF THAT COMES OFF THE TRACK IT IS GOING TO LEAVE A BIG HOLE IN SOMEONE
Well, I guarandamntee we won’t be seeing that on a postage stamp.../s
Good thing it’s tethered to the guy in the middle spinning around with it.
The dead pool good movie
Call it the fusion car!
Check out the RC SR-71 - real jet engines ...
So, this strains credulity, I would say. As noted they don't show the guy in the center at this speed either.
Per TopGear, the tether is attached to the pole, not the guy.
They calculate 91g.
Is it? I thought he was just filming it
OK, I’m in. I guess 112 g is a high ball, because of the 2 hertz estimate. I bring that down to 12/7 for 12 circuits in seconds 46 thru 52, but that’s a little iffy.
This looks like the Wantagh track. With a 32 ft radius, you get a somewhat lower cycling rate. It’s all good.
