Have I missed it? What was the highest speed from you G8 guys that ran? If I missed the post I apologize....sending from my phone.
I ran 167.9mph. It was fun! :)

:eek: Did you run over a bunch of Smurfs on the way down?
:) 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. :)

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.

Maybe even 200mph? Are you running in October? I'll be there- I gotta see this!

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

Must have been a blast!

Was anyone lowered? You'd think that would help?
Yep- we both are.
