Here’s a video of the recent PBIR track visit, this was an 11.4 @ 125mph 1.8 60ft. I was hoping for this to be a 10second run. It turns out, once again I ran the best time in two gears like the last track visit. This time due to user error (a solenoid became unplugged somehow). This was with 2nd and 3rd gear only.

This isn’t a one time wonder either. It first ran 10.98 then the very next run backed it up with the 10.85. The record was obtained on October 5th, 2008 at Toronto Motorsports Park, Ontario, Canada driven by JIME himself.

Yes that’s right,  it runs 10’s… And gets groceries too.
