I see no reason to assume it. I have seen more than a few hit over 200 from a dead stop to exactly one mile. ONE MILE. At 200 you cover 100 yds per sec. They will reach 170 in the 1/4 mile.

LOL, I was going to say all that fuzz for 13 people killed since 2005. Guess it makes a difference now.

+ 1 gazillion.

I remembered when that aired. They should have parked on the North end of Blood Mountain and got some shots of 100mph+ knee down sweeper action coming though.

Road trip anyone? I know a few roads that would hold our attention for a week or so... Do a mid-week and stay at T.W.O. - hit 60, 180,129, Richard B Russel, Cherahola Skyway, Deals Gap and 75. Bike night at the V in Little 5 on Thursday and a cold one or two in East Atlanta. Hmmm. Getting homesick...

Ya I've seen some of the vids of the Texas mile Busas

I know someone had the turbo Busa on here, as a matter of fact it might have been you, but I can't remember haha. Do you change gearing on yours based on where you go to run, similar to the 'other track' guys? I just thought that with the speeds you guys pushed that stock gearing would be insufficient to get it up there but to be honest I am totally out of my element on this one and just asking because I'm curious. More then likely I won't ever have a Busa but I'm always interested to learn some more

With the power stock should do 200. To go faster like the mile you may go +1 front and may want down 1 or 2 in the rear. I dont have the turbo. Your probably thinkin of Alan. There are a few turdbos here.

I read your comment wrong anyway. I thought you were saying he was geared down and his speed was likely lower than indicated.
