The best part is that we are allowing head to head competition instead of solo runs like other airstrip events. The theme will be classic grudge match style racing from a roll or a dig!

Steve I'd say low 140's. Slightly modded ones do low 150's. Had a previous GTR in July hit 158 he was making mid 6's I believe to the wheels. For our October event we had Switzer GTR making around 1050hp hit 175mph. That was the highest speed of the day followed by an 04 Twin Turbo Mustang Cobra at 174mph.

Thanks for the info! I was curious because I did 157.4, 158 and 159.2mph in NE at the SORC last year in my GT-R. It's sits at 2780ft so I was expecting to go slower, I guess 159mph in the 1/2 is pretty good, especially for a stock turbo car
.
My second pass:

Wish I was closer, would love to join this event.

I believe the guy that hit 158 mph was forum member's 2012 E85 Topspeed GTR (now he is running [email protected] mph) that was at upper 500's to the wheel. 159 mph in the 1/2 mi is very good for stock turbo GTRs. Using GPS measuring device, my 1/4 mi run of [email protected] mph yielded 159.69 mph in the 1/2 mi. A machined Turbo GTR ran [email protected] mph 1/4 mi yielded 178.3 mph trap in the 1/2 mi.

*Pizzamangtr sorry no bikes as of now! Liability is too high. You will have plenty of fun on your current setup several cars in the 4-600hp range to play around with!

*Billy a 6 hour drive really isn't that bad. We have people who drive from 13 hours away just to come! It's a blast!!
