That was "only" 117.75mph. I've seen a stock bp go 118.89mph.... since 2012.

Thought I'd throw that out there, seems somewhat germane to the thread.

haha no worries. the car actually ran faster on it's final "glory" run and blew the engine literally as it crossed the finish line. It's on that same channel.

is yours still running strong and getting driven hard every day?

but yeah, back to little tiny gt2554 discussion

I saw that video, if only he let off 5' sooner!
It's still running. Did the first real upgrade in years - tossed the stock '91 coils and put on D585 LS2's. Significant difference. Rear alignment bolts slipped on a roll on. Enough thread jacking, I'll post on my thread after I realign and go to the track.
