A "check out" run at 240mph lol. Cant wait to see this full tilt at the next event. When and where are you guys running this beast again?

boomer amazing run David, very awesome. congrats man, you deserve it.

DW Thanks everyone. I knew the car was on a great pass and just couldn't make myself lift when it boost cut. Coulda woulda shoulda right?! There is always next time. We had another trans we could have swapped but we knew I was damn hard on the car and so we decided to call it a weekend and bring it home to make sure everything else was ok. We made a collective decision as a team not to run it again and risk my safety by just throwing a trans in it only to find out it hurt something else. It just wasn't worth the risk in our opinion. Both myself and the car are still in one piece and hitting on all cylinders so that is what matters most.

nice to see it hooking on a 315 inch tire..
MoTec is the only way to go, makes the car plant over 1 G in first gear! It would have (in our opinion) been over 250 if it had not hit boost cut. It actually lost MPH in 5th gear.

If I'm getting that right then this car is just a clean launch and run away from 260mph it would seem.

Go Viper!
