Mark and his team have done a phenomenal job working towards the 300 mark.

I have enjoyed following their quest over the years.

It is amazing how much of the car is still the original factory set up.

Whoa!!! I started the video, looked down to adjust the volume real quickly as to not wake up anyone in the house this morning, looked back up to the video, figured by the sound of gear changes he was going about 80 mph and boy was I wrong -- he was already at 200 mph!!! :eek: (y)

I think they set a new record every event and they made that run a year ago. The March 2020 Texas Mile was cancelled. I think you can guess why, but it would be going on this weekend, so no telling where they would be now. This car was in the 250 mph range when I ran the event in October 2012, and setting track records then. Now it's super high tech and how much of it is still partially a mod motor, I'm not sure. Here's an article from a few years ago. Just imagine what that had to do to go from 280 to 300. I'd bet it had to do more with engine management to get the power to the ground.
