Watched the video, great to get an insight into how it all happened.
Although the first couple of minutes were less than exciting visually - it's a salt flat! :lol

DMK mentions the 'live recorded' speeds being 'exit speeds' (i.e. top speeds at the end of each mile), while the speed record asks for average speed over a full mile.
Without crunching the numbers, that squares pretty well with accelerating basically all through the four miles of the run, from zero at the start to almost 184 mph at the end ... which translates to 'only' a bit over 170 average over a full mile.
