I was able to hit 214.5 on my only full pass at the Mile before getting kicked out for no fire suit.

You have to make sure that you are at the limit of the RPM's in fifth or you will loose some MPH. For example I pulled 6th at 7,000 rpm the run before and only ran 198.

Yeah, at that speed, you're going to easily lose 10 mph per second if you let the rpms drop. I want to say I looked at my vBox data and letting off at 208.6 the car lost 7 mph in about half a second.

The air is a killer. We need to run in a vacuum.

Regarding pulley and tune cars - Stormcat did 186 mph with it, in our unfavorable Texas conditions (heat index something like 110 degrees outside).

Faster than my Whipple car did, however he is also a much more experienced driver.
Way to go Stormcat! :banana:banana:banana

How do I get on this 200MPH list? I finally broke the magic 200mph number at the Texas Mile in October http://www.texasmile.net/mileresults.php?page=2&ps=1&event=9 I have been trying to hit it for some time now. Best run was 203.0 and I did it with the factory supercharger.

They were pretty mad. I showed up on Sunday with a fire suit and they still wouldnt let me run.

Thanks. I cant tell you how many dyno pulls and Texas Mile trips it took to get there, but finally made it. Need to give some Kudo's to Jon Lund from Lund Racing and Van Collier from Revin Racing. Would not have made it without those guys!
