Then they openly lied about mods and budget for no reason at all..... For a professional team with nothing to gain

with those launches, theres no way. Also, watch the clock on the bottom of your screen from the time he launches 2:47 to the time he gets near the finish line 2:58ish. 10.5-11 sec. No where near under 10 sec. Why didnt they zoom in on the board to show the e/t?

agree. Im not saying it cant be done, bc it can. I just dont think that it happened in the video of the budget build, or they would have shown it on the boards

You're right they could have lied, written an article and lied, been on tv and lied, then made several youtube videos and lied.

Though I find that highly unlikely.
