My guess is that they actually did it, but based on the linked article's implications, they royally screwed up the video editing in an attempt to glamorize the event.


But now they've lost all credibility.

Couldn’t they just have setup some laser on a tower down the road around where there peak speed was? Or acouple white lines like cops do and calculate the time in between lines with a high tech cam and get the mph?

When you see the car hit 300 it looks like he’s barely over 200mph. I’d say maybe 230-240. Tops out probably 280 on that run maybe.

They have to run it again. A new video won’t validate anything

Nowadays for all the record organizations you have to have blah blah blah blah and a partridge in an digital pear tree. I think they fumbled the ball all the way around, probably did what they say they did, but are going to have to back pedal for a year and still won't get the black mark off them. But, that is science - it is self correcting and I'm glad it's happening. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If they did NOT do it, god help them. I don't know how they're funded but they could be in trouble. Someone's ass is on the line.

Problem is.. it’s not their car anymore.. it’s a customers personal vehicle.. he allowed them to use it for the run in conjunction with buying the car. Don’t think it Says anything that he needs to let them use it again.. pretty sure it was a one time only deal.

I don't think they're gonna give them the record after all this bs, and if they do it will be tainted. If it was my car (decision) I'd say run that shit again

I read an article about how the state of road closed should be way more involved, more like a run at Nurbugring. When you attempt a "run" there, they score it for you as to be an official lap.

So, Nevada for NV-160, should score it. It's thier road. You have to go thru them already to gain permits for closure.

When people are scoring thier own run or lap, there is always going to be scrutiny.
