FWIW: I stopped by a friends race shop this morning to see how his cars were coming along for Speedweek. They just finished bolting in a GPS speedometer. In the past there was no way to put a speedometer in a streamliner or any really fast car that actually worked accurately.

The deal is when driving a car on the salt you can't tell if you are going 230 or 250. This allows the driver to see if he is reasonably close to a record and make the informed choice of shutting down and saving the motor or really standing on the gas and shooting for the record and maybe frying the motor.

Anyhoo.... I though that was pretty cool GPS technology.

I would love to build a car to get into that 200mph club. From what I've seen in magazines those guys out there are still the ultimate rodders, I have to get out and watch some in person. I think they have World of Speed coming up soon.
