Hi, all:

     Many thanks to all who are observing from afar, and responding from various locations around the planet.

  More accolades to Ray;he surely is missed by all at the salt.

Thanks to SLIM for keeping this site going; so we have such a wonderful forum.
Special thanks to Mark in Reseda; a real special guy.

Regards,
Jim

Is the data logger speed from GPS or wheel speed?

The speed was a GPS speed and maybe I can slip this correction in w/o being flogged by the masses.

Actually it was 278 MPH.  Two errors in one event will eventually lead to me having to account for them

in my will.

I'll try to get another post tonight but  don't bet your kids college money on it.

Hey Jim, thanks for the kind words and i am sure you are missing Ray as a lot of us are. Target team is to be commended for what they have done to follow thru on Marlo's liner. That car looks great and it looks like Marlo has a great driver in Les and looking forward to more updates. Run fast and safe.  Mark.

Mark:

Nice farm truck...we don't get to see classic iron like that much on South Florida. The roads are crowded with MB's, BMW's and such.
