Lil' Nitro-Powered Tether Car Doing 205MPH In Circles

This is a video of a tether car (a little nitro powered car attached by wire to a pivoting stake in the center of the track to take advantage of centrifugal force) getting up to 205MPH. It's not the first time we've seen a tether car breaking 200MPH on Geekologie, it's just the first time the video isn't butt-ass quality. I'm not sure if I should include some sort of epilepsy warning or not, but watching that thing zip around the track towards the end made me feel kind of ooky. Of course a friend just sent me a GIF of a fat guy with a face painted on his belly stuffing ping pong balls in its mouth, so it might have something to do with that.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Nate, who once got a Skip-It up to 200MPH but nobody cared. Well that's a shame.
