Yes its tapered, but optimal is between 10 and 15 degrees, the taper you have is a compromise between aero and cargo capacity.

Some of the more aero minded guys could probably fill you in more on what you can do.

Logs!

My logger doesn't have MPG logging capability, so I had to convert milligrams injected per cylinder to GPH to MPG. Math is below, logs are attached.

2,650,000 milligrams per gallon of gas
GPH = RPM * 2 * IA / 2650000 * 600
MPG = MPH / GPH

Edit: CSVs not allowed!?

the engine can do it.

the chassis can do it.

the steering can not.

please do intense research into the steering modifications necessary for your vehicle to safely achieve the speeds you desire. stock will require hefty life insurance.

Oh? Right now it is gear limited (assuming 6500 redline) to 165 MPH. You're saying it can't handle another 35 for a short period of time in a straight line?

if you so much as twitch your thumb at 200mph with stock steering you will not be in a straight line.

Gotta love variable ratio steering boxes. On a wavy, very imperfect road it was stable up front but a little light in the back @ 140; a speed I've hit several times before running out of road.

I seriously hope you guys don't think I'm just going to build the monster and try for 200 on the first go... That would be pretty stupid on my part.

Thank you for your concern though, but I'm doing everything I can to factor in every single variable (including braking) and will probably be doing testing when fully built starting at 80 (which is easy and mostly legal) up to probably 140-150 on closed roads to 160+ at the event itself.

The first Texas mile you can't even run in the 200 class (I don't think) without some sort of proof of capability to handle it.
