That OD is for the MPG rating.

Had this been a real no compromise track car it would not have a VIN or a backseat etc.

This is about as close as one will get to a street version of a factory race car.
...all true, it's a compromise, rather than no compromise. It had to be that way, otherwise make it like a COPO deal, off road only with no VIN...

Trackrats understand with crystal clarity. Top speed numbers are utterly meaningless except to magazine induced mental masturbators. Just like 1/4 mile and 0-60 times. Useless information for use on track.

Give me a close ratio gearbox that allows the engine to pull like a locomotive in every single gear, and that allows me to be in the right gear for every corner, that is what I want. Not a top-speed numerical compromise meant to appeal to the unthinking sheep.

170 mph top speed: Please, please let it be true...
Wow thats a really great point!

I love reading all of our opinions, for the same thing we can come up with two or three responses, what it all boils down to is what it shows up with on the car lot.

Love opinions!
