LizardSkin, Mascoat’s line of DIY automotive spray-on insulation, was recently part of a record-breaking race across the Alvord Desert in Oregon, USA. Jessi Combs, host of multiple automotive television shows, shattered the previous record (308 MPH/495 KPH) by averaging an astounding 344 MPH/554 KPH on October 8, 2013.
The 2 coatings, LizardSkin Sound Control (SC) and LizardSkin Ceramic Insulation (CI), were used on the North American Eagle Supersonic Speed Challenger due to their effectiveness with minimal weight added. CI was applied to help reduce heat inside the cabin, which is produced by an F-104 Lockheed Starfighter jet engine behind the driver. SC was used to minimize vibrations around the wheel wells. Be on the lookout in 2014, when team owner Ed Shadle will attempt to break the Men’s Land Speed Record of 763 MPH/1227 KPH.
