    I ran it in 5th gear and was at 5,700 rpm when I went through the traps. I still had a few rpm left and perhaps if I had made a better launch I could have coaxed a couple of more mph out of the old girl.

    If you would like to watch my 175.3 mph run, I took a Go Pro video and here is the link. Please excuse the poor launch. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVkeNxiG_xk&feature=youtu.be

    Thanks again Jon B and Parts Rack

    I wanted to write about my latest interaction with Jon B at Parts Rack which was great. While returning from Mojave, California my 1999 RT-10 the electric fan motor started to make nasty sounds. By the time I got back to Washington it was barely working. Amazing how with a mere 100,000 miles on...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVkeNxiG_xk&feature=youtu.be Here is the link to my you tube video of my 175.3 run at Mojave. I had a bad launch, but it still was an enjoyable run with a car set up for shorter tracks and 3:55 gears.

    My post (#27) mentioned that I was headed to Mojave to run my 1999 RT-10 in the Mojave Magnum 1 1/2 mile competition. I run 3:55 gears and pull 443 hp at the rear wheels. I only got one fairly good run, but was pleased to run 175.3 mph. I think If I could do some fiddling I could improve on that...

    Thank you for the information. I didn't think that 6th gear would be a viable option. I am hoping that in the extra 1/2 mile I can get into the low 170's, but running at 3,200 feet and the expected high 80's for temperature I think I may be a bit optimistic. I will let you know what the results...

    VCA Drama: what are the known facts?

    I am more than happy to refrain from joining VCA for next year as I did last year. I am still getting sporadic permission to post on the forum. So far it has been mostly talk about reforms. VCA has a very very long way to go to obtain trust of members.

    I am heading to the Mojave Mile (and 1 1/2 Mile) event next week. I checked the gearing tables for my 3:55 gears and it looks like I could go 180 at 6,000 rpm in 5th. I realize that drag etc. will limit me. Does anyone have experience with using 6th gear with 3:55s above 150 mph and whether it...

    VCA Drama: what are the known facts?

    I think VCA made a big mistake when they decided to have a fore profit business. There has been a minimum o transparency and the "petty censorship" has progressed to the point where my Washington regional president is not allowed to post on the forum. Yes, it is petty, like a lot of the other...

    Moderators - What is your problem

    I have made as lot of posts recently in which I am civil and want to comment on events. You recently allowed a post from several days ago to be actually posted on the forum. My controversial comment was about an Ilmor marine V-10 engine. I said "625 HP". I just can't understand why all my other...

    Have you ever seen one of these before?

    Why is my post from several days ago shown and all the others are not? What is your problem with the forums. I was a member (Venom for several years) before all this started going on. I am an enthusiast this year while I wait and see what you are going to do to turn this into a CAR CLUB.

    Apology to Ralph Gilles

    VCA legal Counsel, Bill Corum has resigned

    I found out why my post was removed and it was because of a reference to Hitler. I have used that reference for the board, but this time I used it directly on an individual. As much as I don't like what he is doing I agree that a minimum amount of civility is still needed in these times and I...

    VCA legal Counsel, Bill Corum has resigned

    I just made a post on the forum subject" Chris Marshall's Friday letter". I guess they didn't like my comments, so now I am unable to access that thread. Sorry about commenting on this thread, but it was the only one I am allowed to use. I guess we are returning to the "bad old days" of a few...

    Free Jon B

    I joined VCA in 2007 after finally getting my Viper. I chose to boycott VCA this year because of events that finally reached a head at Charlotte. I have know Jon for 15 years and he was the one who kept my interest up in Vipers and encouraged membership in VCA which used to be a car club. I was...

    MCVO Separates from National VCA

    I wonder how many clubs have already departed, but not posted. I have noticed that there is no Oregon Club to the south of us. I think that clubs leaving will keep the pressure on to clean up the mess in VCA. It would be wonderful to have a real car club again.

    Where does the VCA go from here (Positive Thread)!!!

    I think that your solution is nice and simple and will be a good way to clean up this mess.

    Rumors...what's the dealio?

    Does anyone have any honest figures on how many people have joined this year compared to 2 years ago? I am fairly sure VCA wouldn't want to let it out that they are missing many of the previous club members. No Venom membership for me like I had the past several years.
