Texas Mile - 300 miles

Pencil Geek & I are 300 miles away from Goliad, TX where the Texas Mile is being held. We drove around 750 miles today from Phoenix. There is going to be a little anxiety as we are only 1 day away from our 3 day event.

I got pulled over shortly after entering Texas for driving on the left lane too long without passing anyone even though there was no one next to us. They gave us a friendly warning, it was not verbal. In Texas, it is a certified printout warning. He might have been a little upset that the car has a similar tattoo as his ex-gf



JK...he was really cool

Hey Drew, thanks! Congrats again on the new numbers! Any idea what was done to the M3? Hopefully Robert/Sam are taking names as well.

Use left lane to pass ONLY . Anyway, post your experience there. And if the reported speeds are true, you must have felt like in a Prius, no? Man, never imagined some of those speeds without jet engines. Crazy.

There are way too many numbers to remember but there are some extremely fast Ford GT (Hennessy Mullet comes to mind), Gallardos - UGR, Supras, Vettes & the list goes on. I didn't see the SL there but there is a Black CLK63BS

That 165ish mph M3 was us running on the BFG Goodridge Drag Radials which made the car more unstable around 150. Both our first runs were got us to speeds of 150. We then changed to Michelin PS2 20" which then resulted in 183.9 for me on the first try then 186.1 for Robert. We have some small issues which brought the cars capabilities to around 168s but the problem should be resolved quickly & easily tomorrow morning. We are beat.

That is confirmed for the orange G, UGR also has a black G plus two vipers.

Everyone we met has been really friendly & the power we have is respectful along with our times.

Honestly, I was talking to a true gentleman there with a Ford GT that did 220s on his shake down run with a mere 1200whp on low boost. He has another 500whp on tap which should bring him to the 260s or maybe 270.

I feel like a we are in a paddle boat in quicksand compared to the top guys here hahaha

It would be great to have some similar cars to race with. I suppose the closest competition in a similar or the same league is the Vettes.

Congrats with the 186!! Thats awesome!!
Good luck tomorrow and be safe!

I know what you mean about feeling slow. We were in Miami when the Ford GT ran the 253. That was incredible and everything else seemed like slow motion. LOL

I will not leave till I hit 190+ unless they kick us out hahaha

If I hit 200, I will start the drive home

The one thing that is really difficult is keeping the power down on street tires
