Custom built from a drop tank from a f86 saber jet. (Flew in the Korean War) its the current world record holder holder in the J/GL class. That class is limited to 750cc gas unblown motors. The current record we hold is 172mph. All 3 of our records including the current record were set at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Wendover Utah. Because of the gearing the cars are generaly pushed off the starting line and we use a parachute it slow us down. We race a full throttle (shifting at around 13,000rpm) for 3 miles and have 2+ miles to slow down.
