Friends and I used to run a quarter-mile where I grew up in Lincoln, NE. Out near the airport... we lived way out away from town. My Nova used to get 14's, 15's, but I didn't care. Was fun to just mash it and Go. ;)

My best run was a 12 Flat

So in a quarter I would have done a 15 or 16 something but geez it weighs close to 5000 pounds.

It's nice to know I can pull out on the highway and get up to speed in ten seconds. For a 305 it really is a strong motor and when I was testing the counterbalance I mounted under it I had no trouble burying the speedo and once you hit fifty the reverse spoiler I welded to the 150 pounds of steel creates a ground effect and pulls the front wheels down on the pavement so it tracks nice and straight at high speeds without the wind trying to shove me left and right like hightops tend to do.

Racing is a blast but I need the van for practical reasons so I am thinking of getting a roadster for the track. They look like something from the Munsters, a short version of a dragster...

I've also got an 85 Maxim I bought new that I'm putting back together which was one of the fasteses bikes made that year.

I could keep up with a Ninja, or just ahead of them when we raced but they had one more gear than I did so I'd top out at around 125 when they could hit 140 but they could never pass me until I was out of gears.

Fun bike!

Your dashboard is awesome man, enough gauges to keep your eyes occupied for a good long while. With that much on one dash, I am used to seeing a ham radio somewhere, but that could be below the dash, are you an operator, because a van like that would be a ham's dream come true.

The van has four cameras on it plus one when I hook up the trailer, a tach and a volt meter that I can switch between both batteries and GPS...

The rear view mirror is actually a display, one mini display that shows the lane left to me so no blind spots and one on my visor hooked to a camera just above my trailer ball so I can line it up without getting in and out, and the cameras are infared so I can see in the dark LOL.

I'm going to get a wireless router and a G4 connection to mount in it for a rolling access point in the future hahahhahah.

I've also got enough Kevlar to double line both front doors A Team style.

Wow where did you get your kevlar, I have looked into it but DuPont does not sell much to consumers, and I am not sure that I would trust some other company I would love to open up the paneling on my car and put some in. I dont think that I would ever use it but it would be fun knowing it was there.
