So near yet so far:) My 197 was the quickest GT-R at VMAX for a whole 6 months as was beaten at the very next VMAX event by i think it was an SVM 850 which hit 202mph. Up to my record the previous best was David Yu with 196mph.

Academic now as plenty of GT-R's hitting well over 200mph.

Worth noting that entry speed onto the main straight has very little bearing on the terminal speed through the timing beams.

4 miserable mph off an indicated 200! If I get to go again I have a strategy to get over 200 so should join the club at some point.

Agree about the entry speed onto the main straight. Some of the fastest runs we did seem to be from entering at lower speeds, albeit in a more stable fashion.

205mpg speedo / Real terms 196mph on airfield is my best. 191mph gps on autobahn, 175 - 185mph about 20 times on sprint days

110mph in a Stage 4, thats like 1/8th of a mile from standing start according to my time slips. So basically you took 8 seconds to get there roughly.
