Default Mule video going 200 mph on a chassis dyno

Wheel to Wheel and Mark Stielow just did some chassis dynoing of the Mule and there will be a couple videos of power pulls and this one is a run through the gear to 200 mph. This dyno can actually simulate the wind factor, drag coefficient, etc. just like you were literally trying to attain 200 mph.

Mule at 200 mph

That wasn't me laughing. They were laughing because the dyno was saying "Stop ! Overspeed" LOL...It doesn't like 200 mph. The 200 mph pull was at 12 lbs boost. The drag coefficient program only goes back to 1973 models so they entered the Mule as a 73 Nova which is actually probably a little boxier in shape than a 69 Camaro. It did 0-200 in a calculated 8/10's of a mile. Pulled 120-180 in 6 seconds. Made about 800 hp at the rear wheels at 14 lbs boost. Tires were smoking on the dyno at 120 mph. At 12 lbs boost is was making 750 hp at the rear wheels. It pulled almost 180 mph in 5th at 7200 rpm. I have no torque figures yet. This is all stuff I was told over the phone today so stuff might get clarified more by tomorrow. This is a blast...

Wow that was really cool. Insane power. Overloading the dyno LOL.

That car is a living legend. You must get to drive it on a highspeed track like Daytona or Talladega. It would probably with that power go 220 mph.

We have here in Sweden a sportscarmanufacturer, making handmade supercars, http://www.koenigsegg.com/ They claim they have the worl speed record for production cars.

There you have something to aim for Charley.
