Really am glad it finally all worked out, as helpful as you are to the rest of us you deserve to be on top.
Thanks, man.

That's probably a good idea on the challenges. I'd hate to have to bring up that lawnmower.

Oof, memories. I almost lost this car to them. It took another 6mo or so to get the car working again after I got it back. I've really tried to black out that period in my car's history.

...but yeah, we probably did meet. 'sup!

No idea on the IDCs. I can't trust the AEM on meth. We were seeing 140-160% on the dyno, and started to get concerned even though the fuel kept coming. AEM said "Yeah, that happens with meth. Some people see 200%+." They sent us another base map, and it started reading more reasonably. I still don't trust the numbers. All I know is that we can add fuel, and it still gets richer. I'd have to hook up a scope while on the dyno to see real numbers, and I just haven't taken the time (or spent the money) to do that.

The ID2000s are pushing about 2500cc as we have it set.

Not enough, but more than the GT-Rs.

The rules for >190 can be found on www.texasmile.net.

I'm pretty convinced that >200, a parachute would be a good thing to have. It's on my todo list.

so I'm going to guess at least 200mph is the goal for October?

The entry fee's are $100 a day, right?
Yes, on all counts.

Probably, but I'm still on the stock gear box, and I'm using tall tires to increase gearing. It can't really go much lower as it is.

contrats!!
No, just the car number, time stamp, and mph over the last 132ft. I know I had already run out 5th to 8K, and was into 6th at 1/2mi.
