I had to share this.  Just made the record on Wed, August 12th.   If the link doesn't work, just to go bangshift.com and see the article & lots of pics there.

THANK YOU TJ for the tip too...............

You can get this link to work, you just have to edit the post. I have to do it every time I post a link...... Just open to edit, click after the link putting the cursor after it, then hit "enter"..... It won't move the link, but it will turn it blue, making it work.....

Hope this helps...

This car screams to be built in scale even as a curbside version. With these photos and knowing the overall length of it a scale model of it is possible by photocopy enlargement to use as a starting point. I have tried to find the dimensions  on-line with no luck. Does anyone have that info ?

And unlike a lot of LSR vehicles, it looks like it would actually still be a reasonable size if you scaled it down to 1/25.

The village we live in is one mile wide. At his 481 MPH record speed it would take him .07  seconds to drive through town or about as long as our only traffic light stays yellow. Yes I would set out my lawn chair downtown to witness that event. I would probably blink and miss it.
