That was at ATCO, In Florida he did 152 MPH and 151MPH back to back so the 161MPH is as good as it gets, this 161 MPH is as good as the 9.16@161MPH from the record, according to Bello and I quote;

" Juan, the old car never pulled as hard as this car 3 and 4th gear are unreal, I think we can break the record'

Now the guy drove the car from Florida to New Jersey, made a 161 MPH pass and now is driving back down to Florida, Impressive if you ask me.

We talk about the automatic transmission as I had that idea too, but further research showed that the clutches are not will not hold unless you have even deeper pockets.

After all of this years he is not longer with Clutch Master, now he is with Specs Clutches, the irony to see him running the same clutch I have.
