I got to drove the SS at the Talladega Super Speedway. I have no idea how fast it was, but she was buried at 140 for a while :D. Coming out of turn 4 at over 130 and staying side open past the crowd on the home stretch was a real crowd pleaser. Although I don't think the track officials liked it with my lack of safety equipment :D

My only complaint is that the wipers were lifted about 3 inches off the windshield lol.

Pics and Vids to come.

Video is coming. Complete with me laughing at the 5th gen that got left behind lol.

The track has fan appreciation days twice a year. You're supposed to do highway speeds but you know how that goes ;)

140? Which gears do you have again?

I may or may not have done 150 beating a 335i, that passed me going ~80 and I was doing 70. :)

My trans is stock. Don't know how fast I was rolling, Speedo stops at 140mph. It was there for a little while. I don't think I was going over 150, some tool in a 4th gen thought it prudent to slow down to 40mph in front of me.

What, you didn't have your GPS in the car to record maximum speed?:eyes:

I would imagine you could keep it to the mat all the way around the track, with all of that banking, though I'm not sure how banked it is in the tri-oval.

Can't wait to see the video!

AlabamaGuy
03-14-2011, 02:43 PM
Going to pick up the camera this afternoon, so calm down lol.

Yeah, I imagine if I could have done WOT longer than 1/3 of the track it would have been much higher. If I had to guess it'd be around 145-150 judging by the length of time it was buried, rise in engine speed, etc. As far as the banking, I did 130 going into a corner and came out with the speedo pegged already. Had no issues at all, but the G-forces were amazing. I think my seat still has the impression of my ass in it.

Geez, people. He probably has better things to do than to worry about posting a few videos.

If it means anything, he does have pictures up on his Facebook page showing that he was driving the car on the track.

You would have done the same if it was any of us (if not worse). I have done the same thing at the Kansas Speedway with my dad in his Chevelle when Good Guys comes in town during September. It is a lot of fun.

SSC springs, poly swaybar bushings, 245-40-18, 2 DZ101's and 2 Sumitomo HTR Z-III's...I'm waiting for these to wear out and I'm stepping up to 255's in the DZ101's all the way around. On my second set of laps I hit the corner at 130 and exited with it buried...It was really stable but the high banks don't tell you too much about the handling characteristics of the car.

I just hit 140 this weekend in my GXP, I hadn't hit the rev limiter in 3rd yet but I'm sure it was close. God I would love to be on a track like that.
