Inherently, these cars are not designed from the get go for the quarter mile.
Milford proving grounds is a 2.9 mile road course with 20 turns......

Search Milford MI on Google maps, use the satellite option and look about 2 miles to the left of Milford. You will see numerous tracks layouts with building......You are now looking at the GM proving grounds......
