...hum...not sure if I should be impressed or not. I ran the mile N/A and did 180.5mph....with the windows down. Kinda cool it's a wagon, but it really isn't that fast.

I don't know what the conditions were like out there, but seems pretty good for a 4k+ pound grocery getter with an auto trans

I will be picking up one of these soon now that I have a kiddo...the mere mention of purchasing a station wagon has eliminated all pressure on the home front about that Viper in the end of the garage that only gets used during the summer.

The new place is nice but there is a bump around the 1/4 mile mark and a big dip right after you go through the lights just past the mile. I hit the dip at 190 mph and it was no big deal in my 4400 lb wagon. But if you hit it at speeds north of 220 mph it can be pretty scary. At least that is what some of the guys who were running at those speeds were telling me.

Seems that could be dangerous and eventually lead to a nasty crash at those speeds? Why pick that exact spot... couldn't they just fill in and level that bump? Seems retarded to let people run full out and seriously risk losing control.

I'm just picturing cars that are going 250+ now hitting a dip
