Dan sent me this link. I’m sorry to say I’ve beaten this “World Record” on public roads in my veggie oil powered car many times… in fact just about every time I get behind the wheel! Something must be seriously wrong with this LSR attempting … um… “car” if my 90HP VW TDI can whip it’s 3000 HP ass. I know that Enzo Ferrari once said that “Aerodynamics are for people that can’t build engines” but these guy’s choice of a machine with the aero properties of the flat side of a billboard is a bit weird.
I can’t believe the sponsor (in this case Yahoo!) is trumpeting this “achievement.”
