    When my car was delivered, it had 5mi and the saved top speed was 191. I now know the 191 is a default number. ( Thank God ). With 505mi on the engine and break in complete, I was able to go on track and reach 149mph. Now I can access launch control so I will be working on 1/8th and 1/4mi times. I will select a track that has enough room to wind the engine up to improve my saved top speed number. Does anyone know where I can go to do that? I live in Southern California and would be willing to drive an hour or two to acomplish this test in a safe and legal setting.

    Silver State Classic in Nevada?

    Various airports do track days and open up a runway for 1 mile events, for me locally it's the Denver Mile, these seem to be somewhat common, check for local events in your area. There are definitely others such as the Texas Mile.

    After the dyno it said 192, we cleared that.

    This was my "greencat" that broke and has since been replaced. I've already "aired out" the gray cat and will take and post a photo soon. By the way, this speed WAS done by me as the factory "TOP SPEED" when I got that car was 88, (like "Back to the Future") :) 20151112_175624 (1).jpg And that was ALL that the green car would do. It was "sick" the gray car has effortlessly bested the green car already.

    152 at Fontana before chickening out for the turn, 101 all the way through the bank. Speed ventures does lots of big track days in so cal. Fontana, willow springs, button willow. Big speeds mean big braking, so be sure to upgrade from factory dot3 fluid, especially with our heavy beasts.
    Haven't tried any of the events at thermal or the big road courses (silver state or copper state classics) yet. Looking forward to terminal velocity numbers for my girl!
    One step at a time!
    Maybe one day even the salt flats!
