i don't know 100% on the car chassis shown in the picture, but i think they've hit ~60mph in it.

i do know about the previous car that I actually raced from chicago to los angeles (2300 miles) in the summer of 2003. I hit 64mph according to gps during a downhill section in arizona...that was limited by the motor. We had the airgap of the motor setup to climb hills, not top speed. (torque not speed)

School--Political Science
Cars--Everything about them, being around them, working on them, driving them, reading about new performance products or design styles.

Hmm...besides that and work (definitely not my passion), I don't have time for anything else. LOL

Working/fixing broken things, goes for anything I can get my hands on
Little Astronomy, gave it up as I don't like looking at things I can't have...
Shooting... hoping to get some 1k+ yard practice in this year with a few rifles..
Pistols as well, I like retaining my Expert efficiency
Don't really hunt but have walked around in the woods many times.
Ride, sportbikes and sportATV's
Driving, Drive 500 miles a week so playing pole position is fun!
Sailing, it's been awhile
Tennis, too busy working lately
Fishing, same as above
Thinking, Always something to wonder about or to analyze.

Never have though I would like too if I can lose some more weight. Im trying right now to get my schedule fixed up so I can finish my flying instruction to be PAID to fly. My work schedule though is a pain. Also my health has become a major concern for me as well.
