It's so fast it doesn't even seem right.

Any normal person would assume it's in KPH.

Amazing job!

We just crossed the mile marker at 8900 rpm. The plan was to spin it to 9400 if we needed to since it is still making power. That just goes to show the engine build that John Mihovetz of AccuFab Racing does on these motors. Nobody better than this guy when it comes to Ford 5.4 Mod Motors...

did you guys cross the line in 5th? or did he start in 2nd gear?

given enough room, I suspect the engine is strong enough to push the car to 350mph, if gearing and aero dont interrupt the run.

Holy crap that's incredible! Such an amazingly short amount of time!

I wanted to ask about transmission as well. Still running the Ricardo?

One hand on the wheel at 300 MPH. I would be so nervous. :) Nice Mark!

So what happens to the stock Speedo that only goes to 220 mph? Needle bent?

We started in 1st and crossed the finish line in 5th at 8900rpm. At the mile in Oct 2018 we tried going into 6th at 276mph but the car only went 293.. the car is still pulling in 6th, we just run out of real estate.
