Default New 1/2 Mile WORLD RECORD: 202 mph

Been waiting a long time to make this post. Lots of blood, sweat and tears by all those involved.Finally got my 200 mph Club shirt at WannaGOFAST 1/2 Mile event in Ocala, FL this past weekend. Managed to take the Porsche 991 1/2 mile World Record, too. Slip said 202.06 mph, Dragy said 202.53 mph and Vbox said 202.86 mph. Couldn't have done it without the incredible on-location live event support of Joe Santos and Ryan Kube of AIM Performance, tuner extraordinaire Emre Levent of ES Motor, and the rest of my friends on the AIM team. Mine is not a shop car. I'm only a customer. I just write checks and drive. Thank you all.

Amazing build and achievement - congratulations! Going 200+ takes some serious modding and know-how all round!

I am so surprised to see no challenge threads? it’s so quiet in here. Lol.
