Missed my point, sorry I wasn't clear.
The prices you quoted for a full mile will be cheap compared to Hennessey's half mile price.

I remember seeing you break 200. That was more awesome to me. I couldn't believe it when it showed your 203.?? Wow.

Yes. There is more to it than you could imagine. Its all about application of HP and traction. At 200 you are traveling 300'/sec. There are guys spinning as they cross the line at well over 200. Sometimes they are still carrying the front wheel due to the acceleration.

That was probably one of the coolest weekends and an amazing HIGH! It was pretty hard to come down from those runs...

....but you always want to go faster!
