Someone decided to make a skateboard powered by a 630hp V8 supercar engine. According to its creator, there are no safety features "apart from the big red button and the ability to run from it". Surprisingly, they found a test pilot.
And surprisingly, he survived. Most probably because he really didn't put pedal to the metal. The next pilot may be Tony Hawk, who's coming to Telstra 500 in Sydney. They will try to get him on the skate then. [Jalopnik]
