The land speed record golden age is now over. I`m not speaking about special vehicles build for beating the land speed record such as “Trust”.
I am focusing on the road cars. It`s not a phenomenon when you see 200+ mph car on the street. It`s something common. Of course not every vehicle can achieve 200+mph, but anyways, there are quite lot cars, which can do this.
And even if some hot ride can achieve 200, this is not just common acceleration process. There must be appropriate tires, appropriate road conditions, appropriate fuel resources. Well, this requires a very long and accurate preparing. And even this is not all! If the speed is reached this doesn`t mean, that it can be maintained as long as driver will need. No!
So simple to make are these, just the front of a BMX and a few off cuts of steel. Give it a go there lots of fun.
To the people who say that the exhaust will get too hot, or the engine will get too hot, answer this.
How often do you honestly think he used his inventions? And how long do you think he will spend on the trike when he’s using it?
South Carolina teen, Peyton Robinson, is a patriotic individual, so he chose to fly the American flag, along with a POW MIA flag in the back of his truck.
What could be wrong with that?
Well, apparently there was opposition to that because he was told to take the flags down by the school board at York Comprehensive High School in York, South Carolina.
The school said it was a “safety issue”, but Peyton confessed to flying the flag on his truck for the last two years and there was never an issue before. They told Peyton some people were complaining about the flags in the back of his truck. He was told to remove the flags after school and not return with them, but before the school day was over, an administrator had unscrewed the bolts and removed the flags.
Infuriated, Peyton decided to rant about this turn of events on his personal Instagram:
“I’VE BEEN TOLD BY 2 ADMINISTRATORS AT MY SCHOOL THIS MORNING THAT I CAN’T HAVE AN AMERICAN FLAG ON MY TRUCK BECAUSE OTHER PEOPLE HAVE COMPLAINED ABOUT IT. WELL LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING, I HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO FLY AN AMERICAN FLAG. IT WILL NOT BE COMING OFF OF MY TRUCK. THIS REALLY PISSES ME OFF. I ASK THAT EVERYONE THAT SEES THIS POST THAT ATTENDS YORK COMPREHINSIVE FLYS AN AMERICAN FLAG OF SOME SORT ON WHATEVER THEY MAY DRIVE TO SCHOOL TOMORROW TO PROVE A POINT. I WILL NOT LET THIS GO DOWN WITHOUT A FIGHT. “#AMERICA #FIGHTFOROURRIGHT”
Doesn’t that just give y’all chills? This proud American is willing to fight back, and so were many other students and parents who backed him up and rallied outside the school, flying American flags in solidarity.
In the news interview posted below, Peyton gives his thoughts about the whole predicament and said:
“I was pretty mad. I don’t see how it’s a problem. Nobody has ever complained about it before. I’d understand if it was the Confederate flag or something that might offend somebody. I wouldn’t do that. But an American flag — that’s our country’s flag. I have every right to do it. I don’t see a safety issue. I mean, I understand it’s a big flag — it’s 4 by 6 — but nobody has ever complained about it being in their way or anything.”
Well, Peyton, there’s one thing we can tell you. There is nothing wrong with being proud to be American.
Check out the video below that shows the 196 mph pass that goes down on the back tires with the fronts lifted high in the air.
If this doesn’t provide an all out adrenaline rush, we just aren’t sure what could.
Your heart should beat faster watching something like this, if it doesn’t, then you might not have one!

A California man recorded a road rage incident after he says a chauffeur got out of his vehicle and hit his window with a crowbar.
Driver Shahnam Asbaghi claims it started when the chauffeur who was driving a SUV rammed him from behind
and then went ballistic after following him off an L.A. freeway on Tuesday afternoon.

Check out this guy’s SKS “Gatling” gun.
It’s made entirely of 6 rifles all affixed to a central fixture to help keep them “chained” together for ease of use.
Just watch the thing in action and then reconsider wanting to sneak up on this guy’s property in the wild.
“Tough guy throws something at me then tries to fight me for lane splitting. He jumps out of the car and i hop off my bike. He puts on this tough guy show taking off his sweater all to just get back into his car and run his mouth. Then he tries to cause an accident by swerving into me and brake checking me. ” said the uploader of the video.
Some of the Californian law codes:
California Vehicle Code 23110 addresses the illegality of throwing any object or substance at a vehicle in operation. According to the code, any person who throws anything at a vehicle or occupant of a vehicle while the vehicle is being operated on a highway is guilty of a misdemeanor.
Code 23110 also notes that if a person intentionally attempts to cause bodily injury to a driver or occupant of a vehicle by throwing a rock, brick, bottle, or any other object at a moving car, it is considered a felony. Any intention to cause bodily harm to a driver or other vehicle may be punished by imprisonment.
Under President Barack Obama, we saw a growing sentiment of disrespect toward men and women in uniform, who wake up every day and protect our country.
This animosity expands beyond conflicts with police.
In the video below, a group of Westboro Baptists protesters attempt to ruin the funeral of an American hero who was killed while serving his country in the Middle East.
They clearly did not expect to run into this group of veterans, who were determined to ensure the fallen Marine got the ceremony he deserved.
A biker shot a man in the gut after he moved an orange traffic cone that was holding a parking spot outside the Hells Angels East Village clubhouse early Sunday, cops said.
David Martinez, 25, was riding in the passenger seat of his Mercedes-Benz around 1:20 a.m. when his friend driving the car had to stop because a livery car was blocking his way on East Third Street, cops said.
Martinez got out to move the cone — one of several the notorious motorcycle club had set up to hold spots bear its headquarters — so the Mercedes could pass, sources said.
But a Hells Angels member wearing the group’s distinctive insignia on his jacket came out of the clubhouse and told Martinez not to touch it, cops said.
The two began arguing, and three other men who were traveling with Martinez piled out of his car, at which point the biker threw a punch at him, cops said.
Other bikers spilled out of the clubhouse at 77 E. Third St. and a street fight ensued, during which an Angel was knocked to the pavement by a man who was preparing to kick him, cops said.
A prospective Hells Angels member, who was also on the ground, pulled out a handgun and fired a single shot that struck Martinez in the abdomen, cops said.
The shooter is believed to be a “prospect” because he wasn’t wearing the Hells Angels’ official death’s head patch.
Martinez’s pals — which included a woman — loaded him into the Mercedes and rushed him to Bellevue Hospital.
