The FIM meet is a bike meet so no Target 550.

Will there be FIA timing at the FIM meet? So Target 550 can run. Or are they done for this trip down under?

I think she/they'll get serious at the FIM meet aka "World Speed Trials" after Speed Week.

Good going, Valerie!  The record may be yours some day -- if your bike is capable.  Please don't give up.

(For what it's worth, it seems silly to specify "women's record" in any discussion, because the sex/gender is not an issue.  If one wants to be silly like that, why not
specify "blonde record" or record for "someone between 5 feet and 5 feet 3 inches tall"??)

I'm a big fan of yours.  Keep up the good work.  And you might want to talk to Mike Akatiff about riding for him some day, should your
present bike not be up to the task . . . just a suggestion.  Or develop/build a new bike for this.  There's always room for improvement, right?
Expensive, you say?  Just do what I do . . . go out into the back yard, to the money tree . . . and pluck off a bunch of large bills.

I've had 3 Toyota trucks in a row.  They usually last me about 11 years before some annoying problem makes me want to sell.
The first 2 of these trucks each blew a head gasket once.  My latest is a 2007 Tacoma, minimal everything with NO extras or
options (but it is an automatic.  Maybe that's "standard").  Still going strong.  No issues.  And the functional design
keeps improving.  For example, the fan belt is very wide but thin, so the flexing doesn't cause cracks to develop.  Smart.
The truck still has all original engine & internals (including rings and bearings). I have had the sparkplugs replaced at least
once, as part of factory-recommended maintenance.  Still have original starter, generator (or alternator), cooling system parts,
tranny, differential, etc.

I may be on the second set of brakes now (don't remember). I know I've had the battery replaced at least once, but it did
last a good 5 years each time.  Have gone through several sets of tires.  I am a gentle driver and keep up with maintenance
very well (especially oil changes).

I have no big complaints about Toyota trucks lately, and will likely buy another.  Unless I run into a lot of money.  Then I
may try another brand (possibly out of curiosity) of truck.  But I don't dislike or hate any other automaker.

For those wondering, Valerie ran 328 and change at Speed Week, Target 550 made 345 and change after lunching a head. It's Friday here so no doubt news will start filtering out in the next few hours.

Hi to all:  Mike from MF Performance.  Go only with a full floating hub system.  Really the most important fact is safety.  If you break an axle or gear the hub will still turn.  For cars looking to keep the wheel and hub close to the body look a Mitter Bros.  We use their set up on John's modify roaster and have gone over 300 with no problems.  Have fun.

Does that mean you are pulling the car back after Grumm's wife makes a run?
