    • @Burnt119 That's what the turbos are for. Not only do they boost power at lower altitudes, but you just turn up the boost as the barometric pressure drops to maintain maximum safe engine performance. The nicer aircraft engines use them for that reason. Just don't turn them up too high in heavier air or something goes pop!

  • hes been developing that car for a long time now and i'm glad to see him do it, but to me the 10 min mark still stands from back in the days when millen was trying for it and the course was a lot less paved than it is now.....it is still a trecherous course but nothing like it was 10 yrs ago or even when millen came within 2 secs of breaking the mark in 07...but having the course primarily paved now does make it a lot safer overall....good vid and thanks for sharing it

  • Note to self: Never ride with a guy named Nobuhiro Tajima driving!!! If you do, where a pair of Depends undergarment. You might want to take a couple of extra pairs.

  • Looks like a LOT of fun. And I hate my parents for not getting me in to racing when I was 5 so I could drive at this level.

  • I won't be enjoying the scenery at that speed but I agree that's one fast machine.

  • Nice drive. Massive balls.

    He may have needed a change of underwear after the moment at 8:04.
