Very well done dragster, Bruno! I think that car was the first dragster to hit 200 miles per hour in the quarter mile. I remember thinking that was an amazing speed. Now it would be slow! Great work on your build. Those engine pics look very real!

Yes, the first to officially run 200mph, but there's a controversy concernig this... Chris Karamesines apparently did run a 200mph before
