I'd need more information to go by, but chances are its probably worth something to someone.
Well, it's an 18x10" magnesium (?) O.Z. Racing centerlock wheel with slightly used Michelin rain treaded tire. Came from the team who lost a car to a back flip at Road Atlanta during the 200 Petit Le Mans. It has a stock/i.d. number taped near the lock nut area (#344 IIRC). Thats about all there is to know. I need to weigh the assembly, I don't think it's any heavier than one of my 17" wheels....which are pretty damn light.
ALMATY, Kazakhstan — Kazakhstan's shooting team demanded an apology from Kuwait after a spoof national anthem from the satirical movie 'Borat' was played at a medal ceremony instead of the official version.
The blunder took place as Maria Dmitrienko stood on top of the podium to celebrate her gold medal performance.
But instead of the Kazkah national anthem, Dmitrienko had to listen to the song used in the 2006 smash hit film "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan".
Although I must say, I am not that impressed. Perhaps it is because it's a new platform, but I would have expected an all wheel drive, 1600hp, automatic to be in the 7's. Mid 8's are now considered slow for full weight street cars (slow in records, not in the real world).
Here is a nearly 5 year old video of Garth Weaver's (Underground Racing) FULL weight, air conditioned street car running in the 7's. Rear wheel drive, tons more torque and a 6 speed manual yet even the shakedown pass was much faster than the Alpha Omega.
I must admit to having been previously unfamiliar with the word "barstard", however a bit of light googling has revealed to me that it is in fact an acceptable (if somewhat dated) spelling within British english.
So I learned something today.
Pretty much everything about this reminds me of an old Amiga megademo:
Yeah, that's logical. It did sound like the rotor RPM was quite low. I would imagine he was probably trying to pull the collective right up out of the floor.
You can't directly control the RPM of the rotor on the Apache, the collective only controls the torque you request from the engine. Then the onboard electronics decide the AoA of the rotor blades and the RPM.
