pretty amazing a car can get to those speeds numerous times without an engine swap.

Then again 0 to 300+ mph in under 4 seconds is pretty common stuff these days. Albeit there's a whole bunch of maintenance involved in between runs.

Edelbrock E-Force 1593 & Magnaflow exhaust for that healthy American sound. Before SC 354 RWHP, after SC 484 RWHP. That's all I can do and still pass California smog.

They x-rayed the tires. At what speed is it ok not to have to x-ray your tires?

I'm glad they removed the limiter. I mean. 261, really? What if you were in a hurry to get somewhere?

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit

I like the five miles per minute idea of that. 300 mile trip in an hour. Faster than a plane. The cops probably wouldn't even bother to put down their doughnuts.
