But how do you achieve such speed on a skateboard?
Premise. The previous record was 95 km/h. And the engineer Kent designed everything in detail to overcome it. In addition to the engine, he took care of drawing with precision not only the table but above all the corners of the carriage to reduce that phenomenon that skaters call "speed wobbles" for which the skate can start to oscillate as the speed increases, turning into something Very dangerous if not lethal.
