    Sorry but a slip from a drag strip is not going to be accepted by most here as proof your XO-1 went 130 mph on 6s like you have been claiming, or even the 128 mph shown on the slip. We have no way of knowing what vehicle wasww used to set those times/speeds.

    +1. We need continuous video of the run with a speed gun. Or, a continuous shot with a GPS, showing it before and after the run.

    I really hope that "2011" on the 4th line down from the top isn't proof this slip was from 2011. If so, you should be banned from the board for life for this nonsense.

    I still don't believe you. How is it you can afford a $1000 supercar yet appear not own a video capable cell phone-- or that no one around you has one to document such an extraordinary event?

    todays access to technology leaves no excuse for not properly documenting a claim.....I have a radar gun....GPS..AND..video camera...used together there is no room for challenge. Without it you will never gain credibility among those worth proving to.

    ....and furthermore, I would LOVE to see how an RC car was run down the 1/4 mile dragstrip to produce these times...those slips align perfectly with a full sized car making 10 second passes...not an RC car which would backhalf much weaker....most full sized cars running 10's will pick up 22-27mph in the second 1/8th...RC cars wont pick up as much in the back half as they become inefficient when the aerodynamic load compounds...less mass = more drag with speed. ...not saying its impossible....but physics make it improbable. I would like to see it to believe it.

    This thread like many others on this subject before it is going no where good. Time to put an end to it before it goes any further.
