Corvette 'Door-Slammer' Smashes 200mph In 3.5 Seconds | RIDICULOUS RIDES

IN THE high-octane world of dragsters, one monster Corvette stands out for its ability to hit 200mph in three-and-a-half seconds. The 2014 “Screw Blown RVW” Corvette cranks out 3,800 horsepower and is owned by father and son team Mike Decker Jnr. and Mike Decker III, who race the “door-slammer” in drag races around the US. The duo, who have been racing for 15 years, own a salvage yard in Baltimore and have produced some of the meanest and fastest cars known to man – but the 2014 Corvette is the biggest and baddest creation yet. Mike Decker III told Barcroft Studios: “My car is fast, bad to the bone, and always on edge. It’s the ultimate ride because in an eighth of a mile, I’m running over 200mph. We are the ones to beat on race day.” Built in partnership with Gil Mobley Motorsports, the Corvette has broken multiple records and won multiple races since 2014. The Deckers’ incredible drag racer runs on a 526 Brad Anderson motor, sits on 315 Mickey Thompson tyres, and can finish an eighth of a mile race in three-and-a-half seconds. The two Mikes hone their skills by competing against one another in drag races, but say their rivalry is a friendly one. Decker III said: “I’ve been racing against my father for the past two-and-a-half years. It’s very competitive because we both bring out the best in each other. But at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter who wins as long as one of us comes out on top.”
