  • California Speedway Nov 22

    Anyone going to California Speedway event on the 21-22-23?

    This will be my first time taking the car over 120.......estimated top speed on track is 140-145.......GULP!

    Lets see front rear fender spoilers, a helmet spoiler, anything else?

    I can't....
    but I was there last year and found it a lot of fun, if a bit scary (very different from Buttonwillow or similar tracks).

    My wimpy 170 RWHP car topped out at 129 mph according to GPS. But that happens in the dive from the oval curve; lateral acceleration is quite impressive as is the urge to slow down to 40 or 50 mph before the left hand 90-degree corner comes up. I tried to not think about the suspension and steering bolts that I may have forgot to tighten.

    140 or 145 may be hard to get to if you are not running a monster engine and no windshield.

      Windshield, front fenders will be off, and, 245 RWHP/TRQ. Stalkers regularly hit 140 on a high speed track I have even heard of a few hitting 150+.
