Nope.. We'd have several injuries and maybe a death when those 135s and Farm All front ends enter more than a straight..

I could imagine rolling into turn 1 at Road Atlanta or Roebling with a set of 135s at 125 MPH... You'd end up catching the front tires on fire and skidding off into the tree line!
But with their "low performance" engines they'd probably be OK... Even though a 135 tire is unsafe for the output of a damn 40 horse!

... I know it wouldn't happen. I just thought it was funny. :lmao:

Do you think the 135 would make it to 125 mph let alone through a turn....

The "Peanut Special" runs a 135 up front for less rolling resistance in Land Speed Racing...

But the car doesn't have to handle corners and Roger has a full mile to stop after a 130 MPH blast in the standing mile.

Next time out the car should go 145- 149 MPH with a MassIVe upgrade.

That must have some of them thar top quality 135 tires...none of them blue light specials for the Peanut....

Thanks for the pix Pete.

No problem guys. Thank you for putting on this event.

I come down because it's a break from our cold weather; a chance to get some warm sun. Not this year. :(

What's the weather forecast for next year? :lmao:

Pete
