The GTs barely get up to 200 in a standing start mile (been to the Texas Mile, I know). If you were doing sane speeds (below 100mph), which the GT gets up to within 1/4mile, then you would have needed more than another 3/4 of a mile to get up to 190 -plus braking distance-.

No problem having fun once in a while (although there is a reason they have events like the Texas Mile so idiots don't do that **** on the street), no problem telling a little yarn...but let it go when you've been called out.

Poor GT owner...shouldn't have gone to Nico's.

not sure how long it is but it is a half to three quarts if not a full mile then there is a small turn to another strait i cam into the strait doing about 130 145 and just hit 190 and started to hit the brakes once i hit it

Without pics/vid....it NEVER happened.


If it did though I bet it was hella fun! I'm not big on clowns doing triple digits on public roads(I DON'T take mine over 100mph regardless of how bad I wanna catch that Mustang/G35/S2000), and I'm not a big fan of shops abusing customer cars.

But I would've done the same damn thing.

it was a once and a life time chance to take that car for a ride so it had to be done and i never beat on customers cars really drive them for fun unless there a reason as in the ford gt but the guy is also a friend of the family so yaa next time he come in which should be soon for a tune up seeing how that guy has 20k on it and i told him he should do it ever 30k or every 3 years which ever comes first. so next time ill get video of hitting 200 to make every one happy maybe ill even bring it to the airstrip and strap some wings on and prep for take off

(Texas Mile likely has accurate speed measurement devices. The indicated 190 in the ford was probably substantially less.) But, you gotta think about this story.. a guy brings his ford GT to a gas station for service where the only guy left who has a valid licence will take it out and hit top speed on the highway.

Stop while you are ahead kid, you didn't even have a damn license 3 years ago. And why don't you at least try to use proper spelling and grammar, you make yourself look even more retarded than just being a liar....

There was actually a few protege motors to choose from as well. They have the mbsp but Im not really too concerned as my power goals are around 312rwhp max. FM had a 600HP BP running no mbsp. The extra $200 for an 01 miata oil pan really didn't seem worth while. The $200 would be better spent on the WI i think...



While here what should i change on my default afr table i use in megalogviewer for better fueling?

You must have nothing really to do but be you. I hate typing on a labtop and i do use bad grammar only because I'm to lazy use it.

I didn't know that grammar was such a big concern for you. LOL

I just got an email pointing me to this thread, and informing me that the locals have apparently taken an interest in 1990miata1.6's purported escapades.
