You can thank Grand Prairie's web site for this.
The original article was published some time ago in Radio Control Nitro or Car action..and it now sites on their web site.

Here is the description.

200 MPH Tether Car
These are the world's fastest model cars with top speeds well over 200 mph.These tether cars are the forefathers of radio control cars, traveling around a track that's over 200 feet in a little more than six-tenths of a second. It equals roughly 90 Gs of lateral acceleration, pulling well over 600 pounds of tension on the wire that guides these missiles.
and here is the video..

200mph video (its a zip file)

here is a direct link that I found as well..not sure if it works all the time or not...but its worth a try

200mhpvid works 50% of the time[/url]
