    This thread is for speed related videos, pictures and/or links.

    I'll start off with a few:

    Rocket sled, 0 to 6000+mph in 6 seconds, the stop is even quicker (test object crashes into barrier. Click on picture to see the video. Acceleration in last stage peaks at 157g's, more than the 100g's of the Sprint interceptor missle.

    pic of rocket sled at 4800 feet / second:

    Rocket drag bike. Note that hydrogen peroxide rockets are single fuel rockets, and use silver as a catalyst.

    Modified Haybusa motorcycle, 211mph run

    Anyone here got a copy of the supersonic speed run by the Thrust SST from England? They made a PAL VHS tape, but I live in the USA, no PAL players here.

    Try - http://www.thrustssc.com/thrustssc/Videos/Videos.html
    Well it's not much. It's too far and video is fixed. :rolleyes:, so Thrust passes quickly through the field of view. Links to the cockpit and tail camera are apparently invalid, or I can't download the large files.

    I think some modern VCR's can play PAL as well as US formats, or one can get the PAL format converted.

    There seems to be a problem with the avi file. I get through a few MB and it ends both in Real Media and Apple QT.

    Sorry aboutthat. It's fixed now. For some wierd reason, my FTP uploader program or my web hosting will have a problem uploading a file, but renaming the suffix (like from .AVI to .BIN) cures the problem. Then I just rename it back after uploading.

    Link is the same as before:

    thrust1.avi

    Here's one more of motorcycle, a turbo busa doing a 235mph "flyby" (trap speed):
