Bad Penny Camaro - Sandhills ORC Standing Mile Run - 172.4 MPH
Took our '68 Camaro out
to Nebraska for this year's SORC event. On Friday they have the half and
full-mile shootouts. Last year we ran the half mile and knocked down 149
MPH. Could have been better, but with my gearing I had to shift to 5th
right before the finish line. This year we ran the mile and had a best run
of 172.4 MPH.. for reference that's only 2-3 seconds slower than the ZL1
Vette that ran before me. Considering my lack of aero I'm really happy with
that speed. Car felt great, but damn, that's a LONG time to stay in it. :)
-- Found that I was limited by my gearset and we hitting fuel cutoff (fifth
gear) right at the finish line. So, if I want to go faster I will need to ditch the 3.90 gears
and go to some 3.50s. Thanks to Optima Batteries for the invite!!
