Karl Jacob took his E85-fueled, 1,100-horsepower to the Mojave Friday and came away with one world record in the standing mile. With car builder Ron Misjak Jr. behind the wheel, the Viper hit 189 mph to set an E85 mark but missed the gasoline-powered street car record of over 217 mph. According to the team's website, an intercooler problem canceled any further runs. A video is available at the LA Times website. We've also run many stories on this project, and it looks as if Jacob has plans to continue his record quest.
