I am certain that Mike did not road race or autocross. His car is drag only. But if ever set's it up for road racing I'm sure it would be killer.

The mach 2 Black SS flying across the start/finish at the top of 3rd gear and on the rev limiter was probably that vortech blower car from Maryland. ;)

</font>[/QUOTE]Karl, do you have window stickers I could put on my car when I run local races. I been in the finals 4 times this year and have my picture taken sometimes for the track web page. It may bring you somw business and it is free for you.
Just a thought.

Ghost, I can only guess on the speed. I was predicting to myself and whoever was within ear-shot that I would be going across the start/finish line at the top of 3rd gear and on the rev limiter, (that car only has a 3-speed TH400 with GV overdrive).
And on my warm-up lap to begin the timed lap I was doing just that. So I think that is 125+ mph. That was on the 'soft-spark' rev limiter....(some people thought that was my tranny acting funny but that was just me keeping my foot in it while on the limiter).

I got off the throttle very soon before the entrance into the infield turn #1. Actually got off the throttle and brakes right at the start/finish line.

So anyway, at some point during my timed lap my blower belt shredded all of the cog teeth. I only noticed a lack of power at the infield long sweeping decreasing radius turn. So my last lap had low power going into the NASCAR turns and finish line. (it was still fun though and felt great).
