250 mph at The Texas Mile
The AMS GT-R put down a 196~ and then another GT-R put down a 205. These lambos out down 1200-1500 whp.

There may be no way for Mothra to even approach these lofty heights, but it's not really the destination, is it? It's the journey. If we set Mothra down this path alongside the GT-R, who knows where we'll end up?
You could get the Z up to 1000 whp and it would probably pull off a low 200 in the mile. I was there and saw what kind of numbers certain cars pull off. You will have a better chance with GT-R because of the all wheel drive. Anything is possible.

I was planning on doing the mile in my G but never expect to hit 250. I think 200 is doable. I was planning on sending it to GTM for a fully built motor and TT. In the mile there was a supra that hit 247. I was thinking if I can't hit it in my car then why not the bike. One of the only ways the Z, G, or GT-R would hit those numbers is if there was a 3 stage nitrous kit and TT and even then would be a long shot.
There was a TT camaro that kit 225 and it was boosting 25lbs.
