translation: From still standing to 100 km/h does the worlds fastes sledge on 4 sec. Some guys in ôstersund made this. It runs on steam 15 lites of water gets heat up to 100 celcius in a presuretank
the drag froce is over 100 kilos. the world record of this kind of sledge is 105,2km/h. But they want it to go faster. They are going to try a new world record in the spring.

hope my english wasnt that bad :D

#3, I found some errors. 400 degrees Celsius and the pressure is 50 bars. The more pressure you have, the greater degree is needed for melting, boiling etc. When the steam leaves the tank, it leaves very fast due to the 'low' pressure outside.

Lol, like they said, they dont have to boil it. And just so you guys know, all pressurized tanks come with a release valve that is set to a certain psi, if it exceeds it, the relief valve does its thing keeping it from exploding. The rare instance where you dont see this happen is a raging inferno for istance, where the heat diffrence rises so quickly that the valve is rendered uneffective due to the surrounding heat being to intense for it to gradually release the pressure as it is supposed to. This is why wielders dont kill themselves. which is why you see the slow trickle of steam before dude pulls the handle down for a full release.

It was actiually designed for a specific purpose. When you're out of beer and the shop on the other side of the lake is about to close. Or to be first one on the lake when ice-fishing opens.

#10 I believe they're called "Kick Sleds" no? I could be mistaken but at an outdoor center I worked at we had a ton of them and my boss referred to them as Kick Sleds. But, they're only fun on downhills.
