Also, did any of you also receive the email about Classic BMW hosting a dyno day this Saturday for $75 for 3 pulls.
yea, but i'll get you a better deal at autoscope on a MUCH better dyno. classic's dyno gives funky readings. i'll be going as well. we could head to autoscope after the meet if you want to get some pulls.

Hopefully attendance will stay about like it was last Saturday as that was a good turnout.

Alright, I'll try and make it out there early on Saturday. I have some wedding registry shit to do that day so I won't be able to make it out to autoscope. Blake, I appreciate the offer and will def. take you up on it later. I just moved out to Roanoke so I have a bitch of a drive to get over to Plano now...

I got to play with an '03 Cobra last night. Where is the limiter on these cars? Or is there one?

See last night when I was in Mexico the '03 hit the limiter at 159 and I thought I saw 170, but was more paying attention to the road. I thought I heard though that you can override the limiter if you get there in 6th then shift to 7th?

i have no idea, i'm getting a tune soon so i'm going to do away with it altogether. i've only been at that speed once, it's not very comforting traveling that fast for me.

Yeah the car didn't feel super planted which was a little unnerving.

my car felt fine, but my stomach didn't there are just so many variables that can go wrong while going that fast. plus, i didn't want to have an encounter with the federales coming after me! the front end really does needs more down force at that speed though.
