hmmmmmmmm

I call ohhhhh never mind that car wasnt moving ..... IMO you ever done 100mph on a runway let alone 190 way tooo smooth. and if it was someone messed with the speedo hahaha it would have been nice to see an outside Pan with the camera.

I have done over 150 in a vett and hit 150+ in my GXP and several other cars it was way to smooth and quiet. i think they loaded a dyno and ran it out

Airport runways are very smooth since they are usually formed using concrete instead of asphalt.

I don't believe he did that on a "track". He would have run out of concrete to reach those speeds. The climb from 150 - 190 took too long, and would have consumed a lot of runway, at those speeds, to get to 190.

"Z06s, however, achieved the same 125-mph quarter-mile trap speed"

125 MPH in 1/4 of a mile - pretty sure it could get to 190 in 3 miles.

I believe it took 30 seconds to go from 150 to 190. at 150mph you would run 1.25miles in 30 seconds. at 190 you would run 1.58 miles in 30 seconds. So the 3mile airstrip would have been long enough for this.

BTW that car is FAST
