Clocked the trucks with radar

A few of our club members were at the local civic centre parking lot running our trucks since it was such a beautiful day and well to make a long story short the cops pulled in, I thought they were they to be trouble, but no! He pulled up said hey, nice trucks....started to ask questions and such and was pretty interested in the nitro...low and behold the question came up...HOW FAST DO THOSE THINGS GO. I laughed and said I dunno want to clock them? He said ok....radioed his buddy and we got a few runs in with my savage and another fellas Jato. Mind you these trucks have been pretty well stored all winter, and the savage is not quite finished breaking in the motor, but what we got was 79km/h on the Jato and 50km/h on the Savage. Pretty nice of the police to come and be nice to us.
Custom Savage 25 (If I tell you what's so custom, I'd have to shoot you )

clocking the cars ona lot is always a blast. i've done crazy stuff like strapping a hand-held gps to the wing and making runs and looking at the max speed. baseball radars are great for clocking speed - fairly cheap to purchase if you have a group of guys that are into it.
As I recall, a jato should be good for a few more kph than that.... just over 85 if I remember right??
