Gotta do what you gotta do. They say taping off your car is an easy 3-4 mph. I was skeptical until I tried it last year. Pretty much everyone there was taped up too. The ones where you couldn't see the tape were using a special tape that they sell there but it costs like $50/roll and is matched to your body color. I'm too cheap for that and blue painters tape works just as well.

If you would have done all that on Sat, we could have drawn a shark mouth with little Chargers and Mustangs stuck in it's teeth.

Patrick G and I both ran at about 500rwhp and both ran about 168. Aerodynamics is our problem. There was a maggie'd ls2 vette making 500rwhp there and he ran low 180's.

Patrick G could probably estimate better than me, but general rule of thumb is 1,000 rwhp=200mph.

Well I'll be 3-500 more hp so 190 should be attainable.

That is my plan. Take a break from the campaign and go run the car wide open for the mile. Since I will lose the 1/4 mile record I will have to go after the fast 1 mile lol
