2 videos I found, never seen the crash one before though i was there for it, butt puckering from our point of view, can only imagine from his point of view.


Great video from a few years ago, you can see his progress while tuning at the track. Epic light show on the last run at dusk too.





crash at 150mph! great car control to keep it from being real bad.....also very impressed by how quickly the MIR crew got there, class act.

update: that 940~hp dyno was just boost, no nitrous, he also has a fairly large shot on it.

That dyno has been verified to run 7-8% below a dynojet for reference.

beast mode.

Looks like a coolant hose let go before the crash. Ive seen that happen to friends cars at the strip. Its one more good reason to run straight water too. He was really lucky that didnt end any worse.

Nice car.

yes it was a coolant, head gasket let go pushing coolant out of everywhere.

Agreed he got lucky on that one.

-----------------

his quickest to date, 5mph below his fastest run, not that he has put down almost another 100whp it should get interesting next week.


THIS IS N54 SPECIFIC AS THATS A FBO N54 NEXT TO HIM
