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.

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
