Well, I know it is not the SST, but this is one of the Mystics at Lake of The Ozarks two weeks ago. We found that the radar guns only go to 208. How do we know this? On the dual on-board high speed GPS's the boat ran between 213 and 217 each run. The last run hit 223 just past the guns and was still pulling 0.5 g's acceleration. If the bridge wasn't there the boat could hit 240 if there was enough space to stay in it. That would break the world propeller driven speed record of 220 mph when it is a sanctioned run.
