This car has a 9.4 liter V8 engine, that produces 2,000 BHP. It accelerates from 0 -100 km/h in a whopping 1.5 seconds, and reaches a top speed of 505 km/h. It consumes 1 liter every mile, and the 90 liter gas tank is empty within 6 minutes at top speed. However, the regular tires will melt before the tank is empty. At additional cost, you can purchase another set of tires which will last until the tank is empty.

LOL

Front half of the Ikarus used as the tow truck makes it even better.

It is used exclusively as a tow truck and I actually like it. It is a front half of a decommissioned Ikarus bendy-bus which is mechanically OK but it would have been scraped otherwise. As long as the bus works properly (and remember that compared to Western countries maintenance costs in Poland are next to nothing) I see no reason why not to convert it to a tow truck (well, apart from the 'it looks silly' point). It simply saves money which is important in continuously under-invested public transport sector.

But we do! Such tow-truck-buses are used by most of the mass transit authorities and it's a well known fact that lots of commie-layed patches of roads were made of horse crap and old newspapers. Fortunately most of them were repaved properly during the last 20 years.

I bought a new camera, a Toshiba Camileo S20 full HD camera.

Try this video with 1080p on full screen:

Great camera!

But I think 720p is enough on youtube, it compresses too much, so you can see difference between 720p and 1080p only at fullscreen. But youtube's quality on 1080p isn't so good

I think you should try it on vimeo, if I know good vimeo has better quality.

btw how do you fix it?

I bought a PDA holder, that can be adjusted manually to the width of the PDA (in this case the camera) with a suction mount to the windshield.

400,000 isn't really THAT bad for a car like that, I'd expect it to be more like 1,000,000. That leaves extra money left over for gas and tires.

Now about those tires melting... I hope that isn't just in normal driving, or would that be around the 300MPH mark?

LOL, the wikipedia article reads like an advertisement... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TranStar_Racing_Dagger_GT

I haven't really tried digital zoom, but there is no digital zoom at 1080p, but there is 4x digital zoom at 720p. As it is a pocket camera, it has no optical zoom. It cost me € 120.
