One of those times where living in the middle of nowhere would be beneficial . .
This is why I went to El Mirage, and may go again this fall. I don't think 90 mph is necessary. The further you roll the more difficulty in avoiding irregularities of ground & wind. The faster your start, the harder a clean and precise start at a marker. 40 mph was enough for nearly 0.66 miles coasting. My total course was atleast a mile.
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.
