    Lol, what I hate about this videos is they have to show you the whole process of making the thing and then the last seconds is the actual thing in action.

    Go to the 2:30 mark and be disappointed (they show nothing)

    How does it not flip over?? When you rev a V6 or V8 engine, the torque causes the engine to roll over with a lot of force. The narrow frame it is on wouldn`t be enough to resist this force. If you`ve ever seen a drag car rev it`s engine, and the whole front of the car does a twisting motion, you`ll know what I mean.

    Pessimism says, "WHY."

    Optimism says, "Why not?"

    That was a total waste. The video is all about making it. What you see of them riding it is a few seconds of it going slower than a Galapagos tortoise. I wanted to see someone riding it and not moving slower than my 95 year old grandma. Total drating poo.

    Is it just me or do Australians seem a lot like Americans? that seems like a very American thing to do... maybe we have the immature, rebellious, teenage former colonies syndrome

    When I first read this I thought that it meant an engine which could run on V8 tomato juice.

    "Ah, we haven`t built any safety features into it at all, really. Um, apart from the big red button and the ability to run away from it, that`s about it."

    I laughed my ass off when he said that. Pretty much sums up my teenage years of building and operating bizarre things at dangerous speeds for stupid reasons.

    Why did I think of the vegetable drink when I read this title.... a skateboard powered by juice? That`s just ridiculous.
