There were a few at the Shift-S3ctor Airstrip event in November, that were 1000+WHP, incredible cars no doubt.

Appreciate the kinds words as always!

That been said, I love going to the 1/4 mile to try to beat my own time and see what my car can do, but when I want to compare against an other car, I look at the trap speed or I go race him from a roll on a closed highway!

to OP:
Thanks Alex! I personally enjoy roll on runs a bit more, but enjoy all types of racing as well.
