Wrench’s Fact: Solving the Ancient Egyptian Mystery

The devouring sand storm is coming and you are caught up in an intense competition against your opponents in Eat My Dust. What can you do to maneuver through the dangerous obstacles and dodge the cunning attacks from your opponents? Wrench has a few pointers to help you reveal the secrets of this hidden racetrack of Land of Ra in Ancient Egypt and race to the top of the leaderboard!

Land of Ra Track

While you race through the abandoned village in this bare land of sand, be sure to take the detours to shorten your time, and maintain your lane position to avoid crashing into walls and obstacles. Also, be mindful of the slipping sand as you drift through the mystic desert and monumental landmarks. Going off track resets your game, and you will need to work extra hard to gain that lost time back to win the race. Don’t forget to use your boost on straight roads by pressing “SHIFT” on your keyboard to give you a little push to take over your opponents. Lastly, fire all your weapons to anyone that’s standing between you and ultimate glory!

Are you ready to take on all the unexpected obstacles and deadly creatures that roamed this racetrack?

The birth of the first car ever made in modern automobile history was in 1886. This car contains a petrol engine, which is an internal combustion engine with spark-ignition. It was also the original three-wheeled vehicle, which is a light framed tricycle. The internal-combustion engine has contributed to the technological advancement of cars today. This engine consists of a group of reactants that when collided, will produce working fluids for the engine. The products will release energy and heat, which gives the car power to move.

Wrench’s Fun Facts: World’s Most Dangerous Racetrack

The Snaefell Mountain Course, more commonly known as the Isle of Man TT, located on the west coast of England, is regarded as the most dangerous and deadliest racetrack in the world. Specializing in housing motorcycle competition since 1911, this course has about 200 corners and wields its way through a winding mountain road in the countryside.

Some of the motorcycles can reach a 200 mph speed rate in a straight section at the beginning of the course. However, the obstacles on both sides of the road are what make the course so challenging and risky. The road is lined with light poles, mail boxes, stone walls, etc. Some are so close to the rider that a slight touch of these obstacles will throw the racer off course.

When the riders reach the countryside of the village, they are confronted with narrow lanes and hazards that are often concealed by hedges and grass. All the riders who successfully completed the course possess the balanced quality of perfection and luck.

Officials have deemed the racetrack too dangerous for competition, but racing fans have continued to visit the Isle of Man to sample this last true road race.
