I don't know how accurate that bike's speedo is, but I would think that something shaped like a brick would be ALL over the road at 200MPH!

Unless the big rear end of the wagon acts as a sort of tail fin, creating a little bit of drag and keeping that car stable and straight at ~190MPH...

the video didn't look like it was edited or tweaked, but I agree...my first impression was that the wagon pulled away too fast when the bike was maxed out.

WRONG. First the bike missed 5th. THEN short shifted right into 6th and the bike was not even close to the end of his/her RPM Range. Also kinda funny the Strap covers the Gears After like the first 10 Seconds.

your right...the wagon pulls away as soon as he shifted out of 4th.

They're boxy, but they're good.

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"
