    As he was slowing down the rear camera gave a good sense of how rough the surface is.

    I noticed the same thing Al.

    Turbine. Sorry, I was hoping for the sound of some thundering V8's.

    Man - that takes some big balls. He must have been one of those kids that just kept building contraptions to go faster and faster down a hill, and then got into motorized bikes, fast cars and just kept right on doing it right into adulthood with a need for speed - never developing a rational fear of death. Sort of like the real little kids that take up skiing and in a couple years are going down black diamond slopes like little terrors.
