Just got back from the trip to Maine. Here's the numbers from the two test runs.
On my first run the mile speed was 190.708 and at the mile and a half the speed was 207.046
For the second run I decided to change the gear in the quickchange to see if the engine which is 292 cubic inches would pull a taller gear.
The second run at the mile the speed was 191.438 and at the mile and a half the speed was 208.442. Latter I will post a nice in car video of the 207.046 run so everyone can experience all the excitement.
Thanks everyone for the compliments.

Ronnie, Your previous record was on gasoline...what fuel were you running on these runs?

All runs were made using VP racing gasoline.

As usual....SPECTACULAR! I saw 64-6500 going through the traps, and saw 135-ish on the oil pressure on occasion. Unreal, what YOU guys are doing, Ron! DD
