The Pacific Rim Movie ($TBA) looks pretty cool. It's about a future Earth where a monster comes from the ocean depths and attacks Osaka, Japan. We find out the monster comes from a portal, to another world that, is five miles below the ocean. The problem is that it is spitting out monster after monster, and they are attacking coastal cities around the world. In order to fight them the military creates the "Jaeger" program. Pilots in the program operate building sized robots to try and combat the monsters. Pacific Rim is directed by Guillermo Del Toro and is expected to be released on July 12th.http://youtu.be/zA92Rw6kNWw

As the websites say, the Daymak C5 Blast Go-Kart ($10,000+) is the fastest go-kart on the planet. It runs 100% on electricity and the Ultimate version will go from 0 to 60 in less than 1.5 seconds. To put that in a little perspective, the P1 McLaren has a 2.7 second 0-60 split time. To reach that kind of acceleration, the C5 utilizes twelve EDF motors, 8 - 120mm EDF 840KV for the sides and 4 - 120mm EDF 720KV for the rear. Additional features include twelve 5000mAH batteries, and rear hydraulic disc brakes, and liquid cooling. You probably don't need one, but we know you want one.
