    World record in a front loader!!!

    http://www.vg.no/bil-og-motor/artikk...artid=10061657

    The front loader reached 103 km/h (55 knots / 64 mph). They (Volvo Construction Equipment) boosted the engine to more than double the horsepower - from 160 hp to 400 hp.
    And the driver was 28 year old Karin Olsson (female).

    I know this has NOTHING to do with airplanes, but it's cool anyway! 103 km/h in a center-steering front loader??? That girl must have some serious cahunas, if you'll excuse my french...
