Default speed records

Ok I know Nic Case set a record at 134, and an un-official speed of 160, I've even heard a rumor of him doing a 184 mph run. Heck engadget has an article where he has a car that theoretically can do 274, but hasn't yet. What I want to know is where he's getting the electronics for stuff like this. My wife is HUGE into drag racing, she even loves playing around with an electric drag car. But we both want speed... Is there a forum on here or anywhere for that matter on speed records? or even a good forum for RC drag racing? I'd like to see a forum here for RC drag racing.
My bad the 274 car isn't by Nic Case...

The electronics are probably fully custom along with special batteries etc. More than likely it's not electronics off the shelves.

The electronics are off the shelves, they're just not designed specifically for cars.

Heli's and planes have been using wicked high power electrics for awhile now, the RC cars are still catching up.

This guy has a custom built brushless airplane motor that is literally a direct drive, the wheels attach to the drive shaft of the motor SWEET. Problem is wheels explode!

I wonder if anything like this could work? The rubber would expand like in real drag racing, but it may not be able to support the RPM's.
