I'm getting videos together and editing. The go pro didn't like the bright light, so I need to move it for the next event.

This weekend we went back for the World of Speed event. I ran 155.089 and 161.395 MPH for a record in G/CBGC of 158.242 MPH. I had a top speed of 161.898 at 6800 rpm and only 15 lbs of boost.
