May 04, 2011

122 miles per hour.

How'd I get it there? Well it took a while, but since we had a closed course I just kept it in fourth until it ran out of steam. There were 300 rpm left before redline. A shift into fifth caused the speed to drop, as it's just an overdrive gear. Even with its short wheelbase, the car was stable.

Unprofessional driver and an unprofessional passenger (Mark Takahashi) on a - say it with me! - closed course.
