    upon further inspection, my brother and i both believe it to be true, just a highly compressed video, giving it that "weird" look to it, the the little flying thing looks like a bug.:doah:

    i really would NOT want to be near that thing though, if that cable were to break?????

    look at the two paths it takes around the track, from when they first start out, to full throttle and the cable stretches out. crazy

    Watch the flag wave in the background. Looks to be real to Me.

    yeah, that's what we were trying to determine, cause in one shot, you can see flags near the track, that aren't waving

    i dunno, it's a cool vid either way:p:

    That string sure gets stretched out!
    Note the groove it starts of in and then where it is when it really gets going.

    I don't know if that's the cable stretching or just when the guy lets go after "towing" it.

    At that speed I'd be surprised if the string or cable didn't stretch at least a little.

    There is that. Can't weigh that much though. Ah well either way it's kind of a cool time to be had. Find out whether or not you understand drag coefficient on the cheap side that's for sure.
