Yep. But why the hell is it out of the car?

That's an awful fancy way to change the oil.

I got the hotel arrangements done, and have a friends bring his motorcycle too. He did 185 with fuel issues so this should be fun. My better half is a little worried so I may not run the car. hint hint

Bernie, U talking about the renntech guy? srs or something like that. He is the only one I know that did 185 in the mile.
My better half will be with me. She did a couple of runs at the last T/M. 132 and 145. She kept thinking she went past the mile marker and would slow down...God she made me laugh.

That would be SGC (steve). His car is definitely one fast 65.

Below are some speeds thru the mile for various cars for reference (All are stock unless rwhp is noted...as far as I know). The launch has no impact at all on the terminal speed thru the mile (from experience). The CF, rwhp and weight are very good indicators of what u will end up with thru the mile;

Jag xkr/146
C6 vet/155
996 S/155
Z06/163
996TT/165
Viper srt10 2006/167
Marci-lambo 2007/169
Zr1/170-176
sl600 530 whp/170
Vipere srt10 2009/171
997TT/171
Ford GT/167-173
Cls63 rwhp600/177
SLR/174-180
Cl65 (not sure I believe this rwhp. #s dont add up)600rwhp/185
Veyron/204
