Never heard that. I have Rams, but have always been a Chevy fan-boy.

Love to be sitting around a campfire with this bunch having this......well, conversation. Very interesting.

Of course a couple of us may have to throw something out there every now and then to keep it interesting.

Oh. I have gone over 200 mph on the ground and over 300 mph in the sky.

Well, I've gone over 500 MPH in the sky!! (Of course, it was seated on a Boeing 767-400ER. )

I went Mach 1.2 once and shot a passenger jet down that was leaving San Francisco. Of course it was a simulated missile but the computer said I got it. The speed was real in a F-106b.

Danica starts on the pole of the first race today at 2pm on Speed.

We'll see how she does.

Half of us will be crowing, the other half will be eating crow.

I would love for Nascar to sponsor at least one race or a series of races where the cars had to be stock and no limitations on power. Put down whatever your wheels can hold. No more running 500 miles with it mashed to the floor, The luck of the draw who you pair with and who helps ya would be gone. Thats when you would see who the best drivers are. IMO

Back to its roots - I loved the sound of the 426/7/8 big blocks, with dual 4 barrel carbs feeding the huge cylinders. THAT'S how you make the ground shake!

And just what product from any of the big manufacturers would be capable of this? You'd be limited to trucks @ about 400 hp because the gearbox is the weak point.

your races would hardly go 300 miles, if that.

there's a reason they evolved into tube frame cars made of specialty parts (with many of those designs having roots in the 60's)

Diesel transmission? Reduce weight someplace else to compensate.
