A Prop-Powered Pickup? “Looks Safe” [VIDEO]

Yep, no chance of clipping a finger here. Feel free to insert your own “I bet that thing really flies” joke. It actually doesn’t fly (in the air) or fly (go fast), but how often do you see a truck with a 4-stroke engine spinning a prop up front?

Belgium’s Giovanni Verbrugghe fought hard to take this year’s 1/5-scale European Touring Car Championship

2016 Large Scale Touring Car Euros

At this year’s 1/5-scale European Touring Car Championship in Bologna, Italy, it was Belgium’s Giovanni Verbrugghe who took the title after an exciting change in the lead late in the race.
