Hi Speed Disintegration


After the advent of motor car racing it became clear that anything travelling in excess of 100mph quickly disintegrates into its constituent parts, and then reassembles as it slows down (the Haimen barrier) thus the maximum obtainable speed possible was ~200 mph (with the ground moving at close to 100mph in the opposite direction of the vehicle).

Modern day sports cars however work by simply slowing down time.
