Ed and Linda Van Scoy have been racing their C4 Corvette at Bonneville for 15 years. It has gotten Ed into the Bonneville 200-MPH Club, and has held several records. All of that experience clearly pays off if you watch this video. It is smooth like we’ve never seen before. If you want to know what you should be doing in a car that goes 235, watch the video and take notes. It’s perfect.
The amazing part is how straight the car is once it’s in top gear. Most Bonneville cars do not handle this well. Ed’s shifting and shutdown procedure is also textbook.
Wait for Ed’s reaction to the news of his time slip at the end of the vid. It’s as excited as he gets. By a lot.
