There is a video of him actually going off... and I personally think he drove it in for the money.

Hey Juan, it seems like the differences between being in Tampa Orlando area often unfortunately, keeps us away from some of the South Florida fun. Imagine how hard it is to go to KW often. Thanks for the heads up. Was it for real? If its said Viper types are best for such fun, I may have to relunctantly agree, but only if it wins and on the same token expect the very car to be brought on the road course to proove it there against Porsche turbos. Your 911 Turbo up and about? Did you take it out? Did the boys in Boca bring one, hopefully two too? Haven't been down there in a while. What a boost for the FBO. Anybody, fly in in their private plane, drive , and fly out? And last but not least how about the promo girls? As seen on Barrett Jackson, Evil Kinevil on plaque with item being auctioned, "It is not how many times you fall, you are not a failure so long as you try to get up."

Regards,

Did you ever settle the issues with cv joints and associated tranny trouble?

I should ask how you did it?

interesting... nothing went 200mph. were they using proper timing devices insted of the radar gun? Maybe the previous event's timing was optomistic, contrary to what most guys said about it.

either way, you done well!

The previous event vs this event was day and night difference, they have one coming up but we wont go to those anymore.

I completely forgot to bring my Anemometer but the wind was strong from the side, for the device they had a tag huer timing/speed measuring equipment which is 99.99999% accurate.

Come the next event we will see 200+ is either going to be Bello or the Ford GT with 1500+ hp from West Palm
