Default Nic Case takes World's Fastest title with 160mph run!

Holy crap. He did 160 with a 2wd car (no name) and then 135 with a BL converted ntc3.

It was a Custom Works pan car.... I was contemplating entering but too much got in the way and I was going to use a modified pan car myself... I don't understand why some people are so stuck on the AWD TC's, they are not fast compared to a pan car except on an unprepared surface....

I heard the radar gun was being used improperly (panning). This led may have led to inconsistent and inaccurate speeds. The person running 160, backed it up with a 90+ run. Which one was right, we'll never know....

That is why real speed runs are timed (no radar guns) and they have to back up the run to within a certain percentage....

"Panning" a Radar gun will NEVER give you a faster reading, only slower and not by much. I know radar well, I've ruined many, many, people's days! Hahahaha.........

It was a Custom Works Intimidator dirt oval 2 wheel drive car, not a pan car. The car was god awful fast trust me. His first 2-3 runs were with the converted NTC3 car starting with a 121 mph run and ending with a 134 mph run.

Aint no way in HeLL that it was with a dirt oval car. I am sure the origional post of an agressor pan car being correct.

The car was a Customworks Intimidator direct drive. It was not the Aggressor.

The only parts that in any way resemble Associated parts are the suspension pins. The Intimidator came out back when the RC-10 Graphite/Stealth were out, before even the B2. And yes it was a dirt oval car complete with foam tires! Sorry to burst your bubble.
