and taking off the speed limiter of course... only been to just shy of 160... I'm "told" they'll go high 170's but I think 150's is plenty for a daily commute... 170's is just excessive LOL

I set the cruise at 138 the other day for a couple miles with no one on the road... You can physically see the gas guage moving ever so slightly LOL.

I'm trying to convince the girlfriend that the twin turbo kit would help fuel economy b/c if 415hp is better 550+ ought to be just right

Poor mustangs just don't like a 4 door blowing them away LOL
Wow at 138 that thing is just sucking down the gas!

John Catricala from FastCats brought his lap time kiosk down from Canada, as well as his DLP projector to display scoring and timing info on the wall next to the drivers' stand. If you've never seen this, it is a great addition to the race. You can either key in your transponder number, or you can get a bar code label printed that you scan and it automagically pulls up your scoring and timing information. You can look at all of your laps, sort them, and print them on a small printer. Awesome!
