Default My new personal best and still pushing for more. 113mph speed pass. With a nitro.

The car has been getting faster and faster each week with little tweaks here and there. This is a personal best but I feel like the car has more. It's still gaining 7-10 mph in a 100 foot stretch on top. Enjoy.

Ran a GPS in the car a couple of time and the GPS always came back within 1-2mph higher than what the gun said. So we just stuck to the gun. Besides that, when we go run, there are sometimes as many as 40 cars there of which 4-5 are mines. Don't feel like changing the GPS back and forth.

Man idk how you guys stand feet away from these things traveling at insane speeds. After my crash where my flux ran into the box I was on at 71mph I was super sketch to stand near the road as I made my 95mph passes. How many times has someone been hit man?

Since I've been making speed passes and running with pretty much the same group of people, which has been nearing 10 years, I can only recall twice that someone's been hit by an RC out of control. And one of those was actually the owner of the buggy who stepped out in front of his runaway to keep it from running into the crowd. Trust me, I know how you feel but some people are more confident when some of us drive than others. There's a few in our group that when their cars come out, the sides are cleared and everyone hides.

That hadn't been the plan since there wasn't going to be a speed comp this year but it would be nice to even reach that 120. I'm pretty happy having the second fastest nitro ever.
