They can go in excess of 900 km/h or 559 mph.

Podraces involve up to several dozen of these craft careening through winding courses at speeds in excess of 900 kilometers per hour.

Ah, yeah that is quite the feat for the Sand People. In general actually they are pretty awesome fighters.

The amount of tuskens Skywalker killed isn't even remotely comparable to Revan's.

Hum interesting topic !!!
It depend of the timeline, because they getting faster and faster..

They can go to 1 200 Km/H with ease well modfied at the Republic era (Not the old republic because it was swoop race, no pod racer race.)

You are lucky because techonoly is my favorite domain in SW universe and I'm a particular fan of pod racing, it's like F-ZERO but in so much better !!! It use diffrent capicity of a repulso vehicule...


"Tusken Raiders have beastly shots then."

They trian them self but they alway faill they never get dow a single pod racer exept in episode I and it was a feat, a great feat the tusken raider who does that was killed by Jango fett he had a prime on his head for that...


"The amount of tuskens Skywalker killed isn't even remotely comparable to Revan's."

By himself? Depend of the Kotor story if you take the light or dark side.. But KotOR I revan is sided with the light sorry !!!
The light side version is the official version.

But let's return to our pod racer.. I bet than at the empire time when circuits get bigger they could go easly at 5 000 km/H...

Ha too late to edit.
Foudn it :
Les podracers étant des véhicules rapides (plus de 800Km/h),

800 km for a decent circuit with a good pilote with a poor pilote and bad ameliorations 600km/h.
With an amazing force user and good ameliorations 1300 easly !!
