Default Nic Case did a 202 mph speed run

Thanks for the props.

littlevette - I can't point at one single thing.
Just like in racing- it's the accumulation of a bunch of (typically small) things that add up to a big one.
But sometimes, uncharted territory unfolds this way.... You can't succeed if you don't fail.

In June we where very close (196) but ran out of time..
Before that - in March we where at 188 mph.
And in Dec of 2013 we ran 184 !
littlevette - You must be referring to the assoc days,,, yup,that was a plateau
Many problems with that situation.............. nuff said on that.

I'd say there was about 3 years of wasted time during this journey. Woulda-Coulda-Shoulda ....... LOL ,
But it's all good, the R/C Bullet rocks !!!
