Hit 140 on the back straight and 120 on the front. Still slower in the corners than I want to be. But, it's been a great day. Here's a 2:30 run:

Roll bars and seats have me in the car like glue. It's fantastic. Gotta remember to do it all in the right order though: Neck brace, lower harness, door bar, close door, set up iphone, upper harness, helmet. It's particularly a drag when you do all that and THEN remember your key is in your pocket. Start over.

First time I have ever had the car tell me to check my cooling system, though. Coolant temp at 201. I am thinking that's not too bad, but I guess that's what you get with a supercharger.

Day has not been without incidents. A few cars have malfunctioned and in a separate incident, one guy went into the tire wall. Sadly, here are bits and pieces of his front end:
