London Underground 2012
My video-mix of London Underground trains around the whole network. Scenes
I don´t wanted to use for my other London videos because they are similar,
scenes I don´t wanted to upload as a single video and some scenes I´m not
so satisfied with but I wanted to show despite this. Have fun watching ;-)
Starting the 1909 Blitzen-Benz, UNEDITED, @ Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
The Blitzen-Benz was purpose built to do just one thing, to break speed
records (not racing), and it did repeatedly from 1909 through 1911.
(Edited version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ga2HtUHzUuw )
Its speed of 228.1km/h (141.73mph) on April 23rd, 1911, driven by Bob
Burman at Daytona Beach, stood as a record until 1919. Twice the speed of
the fastest airplane, (12 April, 1911, Alfred Leblanc @
69.442mph/111.801kph in a Blériot Blériot) and even shattering the record
speed of 210km/h set by a locomotive in 1903.
This record was not even officially broken in an airplane until 1920!
Of the six originally built, this is one of only two that exist today, and
is displayed at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.
While the extended and nuanced effort required to start the Blitzen-Benz on
a cool coastal morning can try the patience of some viewers, its historical
significance and ground-breaking engineering brilliance still place it
amongst the greatest motor-vehicle achievements of all time, and the dozens
witnessing this effort felt it was one of the highlights of many great
moments at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance 2011.
Here's a great collection of vintage and modern images of the Blitzen-Benz
and other historic speed record contenders:
displacement 21500 cc / 1312.0 in³
bore 185 mm / 7.28 in
stroke 200 mm / 7.87 in
power 149.1 kw / 200 bhp @ 1600 rpm
specific output 9.3 bhp per litre
bhp/weight 137.93 bhp per tonne
The best parallel parking ever!

Fluid MotorUnion Getting Fabel Off - The Lowest Static Car in America??
Miles said he wanted Fabel to drag frame. And with a little bit of
wrenching, we accomplished that for him :)
The car's a smidge higher now, just to make sure the frame rail
reinforcements dont rip off the frame rails, but it's still dangerously
We wish Miles and Fabel the best of luck on his way to H2Oi this year.
Because luck will certainly come in to play here :)
Work Performed on Fabel (the Miata, if you haven't guessed) at FMU:
-Oil pan skid plate install
-Underbody skid plate install
-Front wheel spacer install
-Custom Exhaust midpipe
-Custom muffler exit + shroud
-Custom Exhaust tuck (for maximum lows
with minimum risk)
-Jackson Racing header install + heat wrap
MR2 WBK : Credit Card Clearance? WAT CLEARANCE?????!!!!!!
While people brag about the credit card fitment...
PS: yes, I do drive the car with that fitment.
So no, it's not just for taking picture/video; I drive it like that.
I can drive with that kind of fitments since the WBK is fiberglass.
On bumps, the WBK flexes and shaved the tires, along with the letterings.
If you have stock metal fender, most likely, it will cut the tires through
and blow the tire.
Next video will show how the letterings are shaved off after running some
It's static on springs; BAGS ARE FOR GROCERY!!!!!!
