shows 6.5 to 6.7 secs 0-100 its showing and not a good video.
you want more time at the beginning and end to fully show as in this one, look like you cut out a fraction and also show its on a flat road.


Actually YouTube f**k it up it finished at 110.. The video starts with the Speedo on 0 if you pause it at the start lol im happy to show a video of the ground who hell posts down hill videos.
