Jon, you are going to get me in trouble.. I'm already trying to track down the '69 RoadRunner I used to own.. Now somehow, I need to find a way to sell more cars so I can afford to play.. and most likely pay a speeding, excuse me SPEEDING ticket.. because I really want to try a road like that one day.. At least once to say I've done it.. I'd never had the RoadRunner over 160-165MPH.. because I-57 was the best stretch I could get to.. I usuallly used old US HWY 45.. But only had a few miles between towns.
I I think step up the HP and get some 2.76 gears for the rear end.... Not like the 3.23s ever felt like they were running out.
