About myself, a fastened belt
The latch is attached in a vice
A plan is hatched, a spin is felt
Ignore it at perilous price

The planes will fly by discs, you know
Thus error might not be incurred
Upon the floor's a steel toe
(A heel is simply absurd!)

The head of state upon my throne
Has nary a hope he could run
Although I may be less well-known
I'm surely the mightier one

With fabled speed I charge ahead
Leave dozens of streamers behind
Should I remain alive or dead?
The latter if strut's malaligned

Thanks for kicking this one off, Thalia. Not a typewriter, although I can imagine how many of the clues might fit that answer.

Neither a compass, which I don't think is typically known for having anything interpretable as a fastened belt, nor a helicopter, since my typical riddling approach is to write a riddle that seems like it's describing one thing when taken literally and title it "I'm not a -that thing-" (in this case a renegade pilot), while it's actually describing something else when taken figuratively. And a helicopter would be too closely related to a renegade pilot to make for a satisfying riddle answer.

Although sort of subjective, I'd still consider a race car to be taking things a little too literally as an answer. Not a comet, as I don't think they have steel toes or anything of the like (tho admittedly my astrogeology is nothing to write home about). A watch could fit quite a lot, but I'm not sure about it leaving any streamers in its wake.
