World's Largest K'nex Ferris Wheel Becomes World's Fastest!

Today I decided to hook up a 1300 RPM power drill to the driving rod of the ferris wheel to see what it could do. The results are quite impressive! The outer rim of the wheel reached speeds of nearly 20 MPH at the fastest, ripping some gondolas right off the wheel. This will most likely not become a permanent power source though.
