    At 35mph it takes over 5 minutes, King of the Hill is 1:31 and change.
    Those 2 runs were not at my maximum effort as I wasn't yet comfortable with the changes I did to the car to really wring it out. I'm running on the ragged edge of the tires I'm using so cannot run the car to it's full potential. It's faster than it looks on video ! And the fun factor is really high !

    Thats awesome. I wish there were vents like that around here to get in to. I think the only reason it might look slow on the video is complete lack of body roll !!! Very cool bud. And you could definitely tell you were pushing harder on that second run. So cool,so jealous!

    Nahhh... he is a rancher above & beyond everything... I think that place keeps him so busy, he wouldn't know the difference between a post, Belair, or fastback; but he is a good guy who would NEVER vote for Obama so there is a common ground. ID has good people... my kind of folks.
