we ran a total street viper witout even a rollbar to 210 mph on a 85 deg. day with a 10-15 mph head wind. the car made 1050 rw hp. same day and same track the best a stock viper could run was 159 mph.

shoot jr. all you got to do to beat that with your race car is to put the 6speed back in and go do it. you got the cage and all the race stuff. all you 8-second guys should be able to blow 210 completely out of the water. a race car with some real power should do 230+ mph in the mile.

but then again you got to hold it all together for 20+ seconds of WOT and not just 8 seconds.

texas mile has about 5000 ft of shutdown - more than enough for any sports car. the bike that ran 250 mph in the mile was able to shut down fine there.
