I like watching her too. Anyone knows how fast she was going?

Land speed records are a dangerous business.

That sucks, didn't know she was a G wagen aficionado as well.
Must say that those jet engines on wheels are exciting to watch, but it seems like way too high a chance for catastrophe on any given run.

based on the link article above, at 500+ mph, some internal organs would just get ripped out no matter how good the restraining system is. Very sad...could have been anyone’s daughter here
