    very impressive Paul and Tim, but to keep it fair a photo must be shown, I'm sure you will understand what will happen if I don't ask for this
    Can understand that!! Will have to wait for the big winds to come again.. Unless you will take the word of witnesses?
    Speed record 56.3mph so far!
    Speed record 44.6mph backwards
    Height of jumps so far 10ft

    I have seen 80+ mph recorded on a GPS before now.
    Not convinced they are totaly reliable for maximum speeds.

    I'll second that. He sent me an email soon after his epic speed run.
    c_quad_squad is an outstanding buggier who I met in Aussie during the BBB & he even joined us here for a week's buggying in the UAE a couple of years back.

    Nigel, See you've awoken from your Downunder slumber.
    Glad to hear you are still alive & kickin'

    GPS is a position fixing device...if they get a little bit of positional error, then the next update corrects this you will get spurious peaks in velocity

    Most other sports speed records are over standing 1/4 mile in both directions etc etc....now that would be a more realistic test (or a record of the track log as c_quad_squad suggests)

    my best speed is ~40 (sticking behind Gary_kf on a landboard )
