high speed testing

High speed testing seems like it would produce more accurate data. Have any of you guys done any?

Cool. I saw a few Hondas there this year. There were a few Civics and an Insight. Then there is the east coast guy with a S2000 engine in a belly tank.

One of the cool cars that was hanging around the Hot Rod guys was a white FC Mazda RX7 with an RB25 out of a Nissan Skyline. He drove it out from Kentucky, went 170+ MPH, and drove it back. Hardcore.

I saw the Mustang that's on the Hot Rod cover right now, but it wasn't that interesting to me. I mean, how can it compare to the Buckeye Bullet 2? I'd like to have a streamliner like that for road use with just a 4 cylinder. Who cares about turning when you've got the longest car on the road?
