Actually more like 1,000 feet..... lol
^^^ to the billboard in the photo is only 500ft ,and after that is another 600ft. It would take the Schumacher Nitro Fusion .21 the whole 1,000 ft. basically the lot before that thing ever got over 70+ just because the way it's geared for top end.
That parking lot they used in the video isn't hardly enough room to get that car up to 80+ miles per hour. The engine has plenty of gearing it still has to wind up before it will ever reach those speeds. I doubt the tires and body would even allow for an 80+ speed run anyhow ,but hey.
I have an RC10GT with a .21 Engine installed and 4in Tires and it's gear to the moon 24/54. When trying to determine speed we started from 0-500 feet and got a reading of 65 miles per hour. Then we decided to step back another 500 feet and the radar gun read 71 miles per hour. The reason of the change was because we realized the truck was still accelerating and needed more distance to spin it up.
