Here are just a few things to consider.
The only aircraft that i know of that requires a chase vehicle is the U2. And, because of the speed needed for the chase, only high horse power sport cars are used. And, the only reasons for the chase car is so that the chase can communicate with the pilot regarding angle of attack (AOA) and wing proximity/angle to the ground during the landing evolution due to limited exterior vision from the cockpit.
Using the 165 MPH so called requirement equates to a landing/approach speed of 145 kts which is clearly in the multi-engined/heavy aircraft arena for approach and landing. This type of speed requirement is certainly not something that could be built in one's garage unless your garage says Boeing, Airbus or Lockheed Martin on the side.
Instead of attempting to find out if you truck will approach 165 MPH, you guys should really consider switching to a different type of adult beverage before you really get into trouble.
