Any reports?

A friend in a Porsche 951 ran 137mph.

He said he noticed a silver Cobra with a really loud supercharger. David?

I spoke with David this afternoon as he was leaving Goliad. He said he was tired but they had a great time. He was clocked at 169 mph. Not bad for a ... ahem... "stock 03 Cobra"... :rolleyes: I think he said Carl was clocked at 165, but had some sort of problem with his rag top?? I am sure one or both of them will chime in here tomorrow some time....

Whoa, 169 mph is moving down the runway. I can't believe they are getting that kind of speed!

Hey guys, the report is true,David blasted down the mile at 169, he was smoking, the Black 03 could only manage 165 in the mile, but was really running great. Ran 7 times on saturday, 6 postings at 165. The last run of the dayas I flew through the trap I heard a lound noise, first thought was "there went the motor". Looking in the mirror for smoke, but there was none. When I got back to staging the covertible tore the staples loose on the inside and really loosened up the top. Ran with top down on Sunday and only managed 163. The event was great and the weather beautiful. The only thing faster than our cars were were some 427 vettes with turbo, and they only manged in the low 180's. I think the Z06's were running in the low 160s. Anyway the car ran great and ready for TWS next w :thumbsup: eekend. Is it Friday yet.

Carl, David, sounds like you guys had some fun. I can see where the rag top wouldn't hold up to the high speeds, there's not much that holds the on, but it sounds like with it down it didn't slow ya up too much :thumbsup:
