TEXAS MILE RESULTS - POST HERE

Out here at the TEXAS mile. Didn't make runs until TODAY. Only accident we saw was a Lamborghini that got destroyed when the chute lifted the rear end of the car off the ground at FULL SPEED!!! Driver unhurt.

I am number 327. BLACK 2010 RS/SS with heritage grill and roughy 500 RWHP NA. Cross winds today were VERY strong up to 25 MPH. Race director said that had probably a 4-5 MPH negative effect. Anyhow best today for me was 163.1. Will do much better tomorrow I hope.

I see probably at LEAST 4 or 5 other 5th gens but being new to this board, I will let them post up if they want. This is my first time for the TEXAS MILE and it is a blast. Still having issues with knowing EXACTLY when to shift because of my 4.11 gears and 7400 redline in FIFTH gear.

One of the guys in my group shifted my car into 6th gear and that was a mistake so the ticket will be to hit the redline in FIFTH gear at the Mile Marker which SHOULD be 175 MPH +. The car was really moving at the top end due to the crosswinds today.

Sunday 7:26 AM

Hear the motorcycles being fired up already. They are staging up early for the 8AM start of runs. They are CONSIDERABLY less people here today. The wind is NONEXISTENT. Should be a good day.

Me and a bunch from the H-Town Camaro Club were there.....had a great time and got to see ya'll run....but the wind was CRAZY. I found a video of the crash....but it really doesn't show much, because it was taken from the starting line, almost standing right next to me.....but the guy that posted it up, had been working with an older video and goofed up and put the wrong date on the title opening, which is why it shows MARCH 2010....but that IS the video from yesterday, watch the whole thing and he explains at the end.

Agreed. Do the run in 5th. I'd be interested in seeing what a camaro with 600rwhp could do.

I'm surprised with those kinds of crosswinds they allowed a vehicle with a rear chute to go down the track. I guess in hindsight they may reconsider next time...
