When does it stop being street car and end up a race care?

The way I see it I could just slap plates on a Fueler, run down 1320 or so and coast the rest of the way and set a record.

To me a street car can pass State inspection and gas up and any gas station.

Congrats.. looks like the FGT's are the platform to beat in the mile events. One just did 283mph and now this one 263mph. These cars have truly sick top ends....

They need to add a 50 mile pump gas road trip through towns and call it "street class". Then have an unlimited class for the other cars

Top end on that car was sick, had a feeling eventually you'd see the FGT's at this level with/exceeding the Gs. They've got the aero, weight, no awd drag, good gearing and transmission doesn't self destruct like in the Viper, and crazy power. Looks at how smooth the launch was and 1st two gears and still nailed 263. Even the top end looked smooth and controlled, some of these other cars look like a banshee going wild on these mile runs.

Nice. For 263+ that was surprisingly smooth, quiet and uneventful. Which in turn is exactly what you want when attempting high end speeds...

Congrats to all involved, no small task to get a solid number like that.
