Designers made this train that could go at speeds of up to 92 mph in the late 1930s. You know, that's not much, is it? But in the last century trains reached an average speed of 42 mph
The Slovak bullet has an original design of the drive mechanism with electromechanical power transmission, with high efficiency especially at higher speeds
Last year the train was moved from Kopřivnice to Hranice, where the project called Return of the Slovak Missile began. After the general overhaul, the machine should be operable and operate on the route Bratislava - Prague.
and before you comment about how posting this does anything for drunk drivers, take a moment to realize that cops drive drunk, are busted, and let loose, without getting arrested, and it's only because other cops let them go. If you don't have a badge, they treat you a lot worse.
Speed Week is mainly famous because of the Hollywood movie “The Fastest Indian” starring Anthony Hopkins. He plays Burt Munro, an elderly loner who goes to great lengths to set a new record here. For once, the charming movie isn’t exaggerated. Because Burt Munro truly exists. There are hundreds of them, in all sizes and appearances. They’re all old or older, pickled, smoked and burned, with a smile like Fozzie Bear, and with wrinkles deep enough to hide another spanner. A 75-year-old with 49 participations under his tool belt is only average, and Fred touched both 276mph and his 85th birthday recently.
The participants’ list consists mainly of old-timers who don’t have anything. Like Tim. He’s a car guy, but he opted for a self-made 100cc motorbike which is so low, it’s barely controllable at low speed. “Why? Because bikes are cheaper. We’re high class on low economy.” His wife can’t understand the fuss. So Tim brought a friend to lend a hand and to drive around in a rusty Beetle with a parasol on top. “We’re sleeping in a 1973 Dodge camper van I got for free, and I found most parts of my bike all around. The leather on the tank is from an old sofa, the saddle used to be a diving suit and the steering gear originates from a chainsaw.” Tim will never earn a red cap. His device is not even barely fast enough. But he hopes to get his name in the official books, just for the sake of it; 100mph would be a tad faster than the current record.
The idea behind the first Motul Pedal car race was simple and straightforward. Twelve talented young racers divided into teams of two would do a Le Mans style start, jumping into their pedal car, neatly crafted from a Motul oil drum, and set off for a thrilling two-lap race with a driver change in the middle.
The hand drill with a round brush used to agitate the dirt in the floor mats.... that is smart!
and this stuff, because like I posted a couple months ago, there is so much stuff sticking to my commuters paint, and I didn't realize until now, that it was rusty iron, which makes sense when compared to what I've seen on my paint. Now I know there is something that directly deals with it
use this for getting pet hair out of seats and carpet
by the way, before buying this stuff yourself, consider what a detailer will charge you to clean your car, versus what all the products will cost. It might be cheaper, and a huge time saver to get the pro to clean your car occassionally
This was built using a brand new body that was professionally shortened 16" and mounted to a brand new frame.
