Yeah I'm not sure because everyone wants to do 1/2, but let's just say you're the first so you have the record
Congratulations!
But really, that's pretty cool. I wonder how some of the half mile cars that are closing in on 170 would do. Did they clock you at the half as well or just the full mile?

hi
we did get only 1 miles end speed there on speed party, not 1/2 mile speeds.
here in Finland we don`t do any 1/2 mile runs, only 1/4 and full mile.
there speed should be on 1/2 mile quite near 170 mph if there is any possibilities to do
a mile in 190+mph zone.

few weeks ago i did 1/4 mile on our local runway with it at 132+ mph traps ,
and after that i swap my fmic to real race thing from a undersized version.
there is still some tune to be done to this

1 mile is quite tough to engine, wot for 30 sec for sure stress engine parts a lot.

At those speeds, I'd be much more concerned about aero, tires, suspension and safety gear than the motor...unless it seized and locked the driveline up.

they seems to top over 300kph here on standing mile with very wierd machines.
offcource, TT corvettes are popular, and supras too but there is stupidly fast volvos
too, like volvo v40 t4 wagons without any interior or outer mods, front wheel drived and
best of those runs 339kph/+210mph. second fastest volvo was a 850 t5 with 335 kph/207mph

that 339 kph volvo is with orginal engine, huge turbo, revs to 9500, 3,3 bar boost and dynoed +1000hp from that little 2 liter fourbanger. 850 t5 was too on 1000hp limit.

There have been many N54's at the Texas Mile. I don't recall anything this fast though.
