It 100 if you preregister. 125 if you dont. 50 to be a member for the year. If you think you will go over 135mph. You need to order the rule book. It 10 bucks I think. There is just alot of little things you need to do once youc go over 135mph. Thats why I say you need a rule book. Y ou will have to run only 130mph first run then 150mph you 2nd to get the correct licenes you need to run up to 174mph. So you first 2 runs will be just to licens up. You will need to be there friday for car inspection and roookie orientation.

Oh, just do it. We all want to see what that thing will do. Heck, we could probably get 100 members to send you a dollar each.

FWIW, stock tire diameter and 7,200 RPM you can hit 167MPH max'ish. I really doubt you'll get much over 150 though, if even.

Spreadsheet you can play with: https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?...N2JkNWc&hl=en#

I think he would hit around 150-160mph. Thats is he could get it to stick. You have to use DOT tires. No slicks.

well im not on stock size tires first and trust me id bury it past 160 with ease.. not sure about in a mile... but id run out of rpms before i would run out of power...lol... but unfortunately there is alot i would have to do to my car for them to let me run.. and i deff dont plan on doing any of it.. im not putting a cage in my daily.. its too pretty inside..lol.. and i dont have a fire suite as well.. and plus i would also have to change my tires because apparently i cant run 18s.. oh well.. and i sat down and di the math one time when i was cruising in 5th at like 80.. i dont remember the exact #s ill have to do it again but it cam out to like 189mph by the time i hit 7200rpm.. (that is f my car had enough power to push it that fast.) not sure id even want to go that fast in it anyways..lol... but i was just wanting to test it out sometime.. but im surely not gonna add 2kk worth of stuff just to find out...

That's not even really a street car. I read about it in some magazine. It's impressive, but I'd be more impressed if it would run in the Silver State Classic where it's 100 mile mostly straight stretch.

http://www.sscc.us/results-10a-sscc.html

I read one year where there was a Camaro entered into the competition that had an averaged speed of 227. IIRC, it was a 427 with 800 hp. It's been 15 years since I read that article though.

I think your talking about Big Red. I was talking to the Evo guys and they are talking about doing Drag Week this year. It looks like a 1,200 mile trip again.
