Wow waht a fun time! Just got home and I am pretty tired. This was a cool event and I will go back for sure. This time with roll bar in place. The fastest run was a vette with twin turbos 188 MPH. My good buddy David let me drive his car a bunch of times and it is such a great handling car. I had never been 167 MPH before. His car really flies. There were some bikes on Saturday I think were in the high 180's maybe 190 range. They are unbelivably fast. We need to do this as a club event maybe in October when it is cooler. They will host another event in late july and the one in October. Going that fast is such a rush I cant begin to describe. David's car went down that mile probably at least 15 times I think. I lost count but the motor was perfect. Our third member who was with us experienced the same issue with his motor as I did at TWS. For those of you who know me then you know what i am talking about. I want discuss his problems but it ends with another tune that th driver thought was safe from one of the local shops. Point being I sure am glad that my car was reflashed by Chris Johnson from Super Chips. SCMC gang you need to do this in October :thumbsup: There was some really great people there and the people who put on the event were great. :)

I had a great time also......The best speed I had was 167.8.... :D We had a 15-20 mph head wind that did not help us. I was in 5th gear at 6500 rpm :eek: Also we found out the speedo in the car is way off. It read 165 and our true speed was 153 :(
We need to have some more Cobra people out there....

Stan, I have a/c but If I am going to run it all out top speed I'd rather not use it!

It blows colder than a Witch's (insert body part here) in a brass bra!
