    That's awesome that's probably the greatest feeling that you have a 160 mph slash.

    Wait 160 degrees Fahrenheit or Celsius? Just joking, awesome run! Look forward to your 200 mph car!
    If it cant be broke, I'll break it.

    I was thinking the same thing.
    That would be like a very bad gout pain.

    Congrats! At that kind of speed how do you make steering adjustments?

    Phil, do you change tires often? Seems as if I always rip these grp tires.

    you broke scale speeds of sound - mach .50!

    "For a 3.5” 15K RPM disk, this works out to just under 160 MPH. Since Mach 1 -- the speed of sound at standard temperature and pressure -- is roughly 760 miles per hour, that's just 0.21 Mach, well below the roughly .8 Mach threshold where transonic effects raise their ugly heads.Jan 24, 2014"

    that's also random internet garble... and your tires are taller.. lol

    nice run man. "woosh"
