110.

Eric said it was pretty freaking amazing. I may have to let him do it while I'm standing there. He said it sounded like a jet coming and going.

I was tempted at the time to push it further.....that 151 still haunts me for backing out of it. But at night, and right about the time the video ends, I crossed railroad tracks. Almost get airborne at 100+.

Funny thing you guys don't know, this road and exact spot is my normal 1/4 mile 'track'. This is the one I mapped and marked with my GPS last year. There are 2 signs exactly 1/4 mile apart. The RR crossing sigh is where Eric was standing at the 1/4 point. The only difference is that I took rolling starts that night. Hence the 110 mph 'trap'. Gives you a better idea of what the car is capable of now. I even had my climate control in auto when that video was shot. I keep forgetting

Come on over. We'll take her out to Eastern Oregon. If the GF can take it to 138, why not you?

Eat my shorts. I'm not riding with you at that speed!

I'll be hiding in a culvert where the wreck debris can't reach me!

i liked your previous video post better, the one from inside the car...Easier to hear that jet engine try putting the camera in the trunk or somewhere where you can get it nice and loud for the whole time.
