That record will stand for quite a while.

What they had to do for that run was insane. Sounds like they had a good bit of support as well, dont think it would have been possible without it.
Wonder how many tickets.....lol If they could even catch them
Is that not the dude who posted on here a month or two ago talking about the record?
I am envious of these guys...that HAD to have been a BLAST!
Meanwhile..in the driver's meeting..
I believe he broke the classic car record or something to that effect. His time was well over 30 hours if I remember correctly. This was for the all time record.
Having done a fast coast to coast drive with a friend, it's not that cool or interesting when you have 100 people front running for you. It eliminates the variables that take up time. Shouldn't even count as a record. In 8 years someone with a tesla and a generator in the back will break the record via car self driving.
Not a bad idea, but this has been prevented by Tesla firmware for quite sometime, basically if the charge port is in use the car will not move. Though perhaps in the future.....
If I ever win the lottery, I WILL break this record and continue to hold it until the day I die

Like anything else, it can be modified
I'm tempted to toss out an "Ok boomer" but I'll resist. Every year, there's advancements. Every person has the ability to use whatever they can. I'm sure someone once said radar detectors are "ruining" a true Cannonball run.
I don't remember which record it was, but I know I watched a video about an older record holder and they talked about hiring some people with crop dusting planes to check for cops and report to them via CB or something.
Plus you make it sound like they had it easy. Just because they had a spotter run a second of highway 20 minute prior doesn't mean some state trooper just merged onto that highway 2 minutes ago.
I've done a 230ish mile stretch in 2 hours simply as a passenger, and that was a little nerve racking....and I was never facing jail time.
One car accident ahead of them during a 2,800 mile drive and their entire attempt could have been over. One flat tire, and game over (unless they had a full spare...good question).
To put down their record in any slight sense is extremely foolish in my opinion.
Um...no. Was that some joke or something?
I'm a millennial... It wasn't a joke, you just didn't get it. A self-driving car winning next was an exaggerated example of someone doing even less and winning because of technology allowing it.
The less you do on your own, the less interesting the achievement is, to me.
They definitely had some cool ideas. That infrared camera was clever. Having tons of people running ahead of you is obviously helpful, but kind of lame. They pushed the risk onto numerous other drivers. To me, the Cannon Ball is about risk and defying odds as a team in your car.
A guy down the street from me made several attempts on a motorcycle, from the stories he told that is not for the faint of heart. He usually got arrested and he carried a shield.

I suspect it will take Tesla and or a former engineer from Tesla..Elon Musk is just the kinda crazy egomaniac that would do it for the publicity. The eggheads on Tesla boards have been trying to figure it out for quite sometime.
No, it was just a stupid comment. A self driving car still isn't police proof. You still face 27 hours of illegal speeds, plus traffic, mechanical failure, weather, road construction, etc.
