Are those MT DRs rated for 200? thought they were 'W' rated... for 168mph?

Doug is freakin crazy... no way I'm going 200 in the passenger seat...

Shit yeah....

Well, as long as Robert can make it on his own (minus my 235lbs) THEN I'll go with him (if he is willing) to see if it could happen. Obviously my heavy ass is going to slow things down a bit so no....not gonna happen unless I can there's some miracle...lol

Well I'm sure keeping it in mind, Corey feels we can do this, he mentioned a 735 hp mustang went 200+ and they are relatively the same aerodynamic brick as the Camaro... It'll take some tuning and tape... But I'm sure going to try..Corey should be able to easily up the hp as needed. We are still very conservative on the tune... And boost...

Uhhh??? Whatcha talking about? He needs your heavy a$$ in the trunk as ballast so he doesn't go airborne! He will actually go faster because you will pull the cars center of gravity down and decrease the airspace under the car.

Nah, I got that big ass spoiler in the back... I may need a navigator to find the end of the straight...... I just had a vision of dumb and dumber when they got lost and ended up in Nebraska...

He craps in my car, I'm 1. Driving his home and 2. Making him clean it up...

On a side note, I'm still hoping to see you next week if we can make it happen... Is by chance your wife coming to the meeting with you...

Funniest thing I ever saw (since this is now a poop thread) was at a pet store. I was looking at the dogs in Kennels and one dog was pooping as the other dog was licking the poop as it came out. I was in awe that I was seeing this, knowing that no one would believe me I looked around quickly to find one of my friends (this had to be shared) and as I turned I found Glen standing next to me with the same damn "in awe" face !!! So glad I was able to share this with him and you!! - true story
