    STOCK internals
    STOCK transaxle
    STOCK brakes

    beaten by extremely heavily worked Banh Supra (228mph) and SVS Viper (223mph)...they even had chutes

    Ford power
     
  15. I just wanna know what they did to the suspension to cope with the power in the turns. Maybe not a thing??
     
  16. Why do people think when a car has high horsepower it can't handle? Do you really think they go WOT into and out of turns?
     
  17. Can't believe they didn't upgrade the brakes though.
     
  18. valid concern, since they actually spun off the track despite the Texas Mile being a straight-line event!
     
  19. seriously though...
