The Finnish aren't known for their high-energy personas, and we thought it might be because they save their adrenaline dumps for rally cars and snowmobiles. Turns out they also like to let their slot cars showcase hidden Type A personalities.

At a place called Autorataharrastajat ry, some very serious racers run slot cars at barely watchable speeds on an eight-lane track. It looks like some sort of scaled-up atomic experiment at the Large Hadron Collider and sounds like Transformers. We're not actually sure if this is the world's fastest slot car action, but it certainly looks like it could be. The video's after the jump, skip to 0:55 to bypass the preparation and go straight to million-mile-per-hour action.
