you've gotta see this!

Anyone got 2200m of rope? (all in one length!) - thats 7218 feet!

120km/h - 75mph!

And most likely a helicopter to install it! Or perhaps a decent powered Radio controlled drone running out decent strength 2mm dynema line or something which the rope could then be installed from.

Fair game - those bearings are screaming!
