Predator went by that Black MTI like it was dragging a few anchors in that You Tube Video.

Gary, Predator was running 185+ a DS, but it took a bit to get up to full speeds, What kinda numbers are u expecting to get at LOTO? with the smaller course? Can u get the 40 up to those speeds on the shorter course?

It really isn't much to look at. You only see the MTI Corvette 48 for a spilt second. Most of the video is the Predator 40 chasing down and passing the Green DCB 1350s M31. That was the real race, the 48MTI was wayyyyy back.

Thank you!

It was being loaded on a Trailer about a week ago

So I would think testing has started,......I know they were waiting for Sterling,......for the authorization codes to fire
the engines and start the actual testing.

Hopefully we will start to hear some results
