  Depends on what car you are in but as fast as they will go, the back straight is a mile and a quarter long and you enter it in 3rd gear .  Top speed in the punisher ???  Humm I ain't tellin   well I really don't know no speed O

@nissanguy38501 @Doc@Huggy@sonofamitch  You guys are starring in it ?

That looked like a lot of fun.  Except that moment in turn 5 early on - HOLY CRAP that BMW behind you got close to you.  I'd like to see the video from his car to see if it was as close as it seemed.  Based on the sun angle, was that about 9:00 or so in the morning?

A few cars starred in it a couple of times - nice job putting some laps on people!

@elongoranthat was me driving.  I so blew the shift in T7 around 20 minutes.  Stuck it in 5th, not 3rd.  Fun run while it lasted!

 It was definitely fun chasing you man

You were in 5th for a while on the back straight... are you aero capped that low?? Would have guessed 120 based on how long you were on the gas and knowledge of E30 gear ratios. 

 We are like the F1 Redbull team a few years ago we compromise top speed for handling  ???

 I think our top speed was 112 -113mph 

Is that from data or a guess?  I believe we were at 119 last year with the 4.10 and 121 with the 3.73.  We have no aero, but that seems like a huge compromise...Then again, I think our best lap at Road Atlanta is a 1:47.

Is edit broken? Yes. Sooo...We have had issues at Road Atlanta for the last two years and the 1:47 is probably not our best effort.

We store several sandbags in our trunk. Its for corner balance, and just in case the track is flooding during a red flag, and of course there is always that pesky sniper fire. Incoming.....
