    Average moving speed: 100 mph
    Average overall speed: 98 mph
    Top speed: 158 mph
    Total miles: 2,813
    Total time: 28 hours, 50 minutes

    The record-breaking trip included 2 additional gas tanks of 22 gallons each, 2 laser jammers, 3 radar detectors, 1 spotter about 200 miles ahead of them, 1 police scanner, and a bedpan. Because bathroom breaks are for pussies.

    Believes bed pans are too messy and time consuming.

    They went to Georgia Tech. They could do that.

    I hope they called their sled "The Ramblin' Wreck."
