I pull their chain and say about 85 mph down hill with a tail wind otherwise its about 55 mph.

What's this local meet you speak of? There are none in my area.
Exactly! I enjoy modding my cars in both ways but the Probe is dedicated to MPG.

The meet is Fridays and Saturdays at the strip mall at Woodward and Normandy.
