Just went 231mph with a 21mph head wind. Going to add some boost to her and try it again first thing tomorrow morning. Hopefully the wind wont be near as bad.








Also set the record for the worlds fastest camaro with a 243mph run but had a valve cover gasket push out and had a flash fire that hurt some wires. We are trying to fix tonight so we can try for the OVERALL record in the morning. 250+ here we come!!

Congradulations on setting the fast speeds, Nice talking to you guys. I was only able to go 190.4 about 11am today. The track was a little rough on the big end on that run, Almost lost it with the bump on the finish line. Again congradulation on setting the record. See ya'll in October.

Corvette made 23lbs of boost in 3rd gear, which was 5 more than yesterday, then broke the trans..

Camaro went 244 today, josh had to lift a couple times and at the end becuase of the crazy head wind.

The TX mile staff recorded 31mph head wind today. We are not going to try anymore today due to how unsafe the conditions are.

Congrats guys!!! New track record, and tied with the fastest bike for the event, that is impressive What's more impressive is the fact that you were able to repair the occurrences of damage you sustained on that bump and get the cars back on the track each day, awesome job
