204 mph in a Street Car

204 mph isn't really that fast. A stock 911 GT2 will do 205 mph,  not in a quarter mile though. Street car. Streetable car. What might be a "street car" to some, would be a race car to others. Hot Rod Magazine runs what they call Drag Week, which puts cars and drivers at five different venues to see who is the top dog. The cars have to be driven from track to track under their own power with no support vehicles. Its a pretty cool event. A good way to go out and have fun in a car. Whether or not most of these are street cars is debatable to most, but 1000 mile trip, is a 1000 mile trip.

7.3 @ 204 mph . Driven 1000 miles on this event. Run on the same tires for the 1000 miles. Street car/ Streetable car either way it did 1000 miles and over 200 mph in the quarter mile. 555 cubic inches , twin 88 mm turbos, Lenco 5 speed , 33 x 18.5 ET Streets. Gangsta.
