"Like riding on the moon"

Says the owner of the 1968 Sundowner Corvette bonneville LSR car: "The body looks swoopy but it's not and a lot of lead is distributed throughout the car to keep it on the ground at over 200 mph."

If he is serious, it seems some more aeromods would be smarter than weights, which slow him down on acceleration more than aeromods would. Or maybe weights are better than aero to reduce lift because the goal is top speed and most lift-leduction would have a drag penalty reducing top speed capability.

'Like riding on the moon': Welcome to the fastest place in the world -

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
