Yahoo! Autos cooking oil-powered car set a land speed record over the weekend at the El Mirage Dry Lake Bed near Victorville California. The heavily modified six-cylinder, 'Lipid Lightning' truck reached 98.155 mph which, according to Yahoo, is a record for a grease car.

The team set the record on its first try. High winds and mechanical problems prevented another run and possibly higher speeds.

The truck was built by Orange County Rod and Customs in Placentia California.
