    Gizmo....good to see that you're bringing out the xlr-v, you mentioned you wanted run it in October when I met you at the March event. We're working on a Cadillac area. I will have a motorhome and there may be a couple more. All V's should look for each other and set up together.

    Will do! Looks like, as of this weekend, we'll have 3 XLRs (only 2 racing) and an RV and rental car.

    So who's getting there earliest? I don't plan to arrive until after lunch on Friday. Let me know and I can pass it on to the rest of my team.

    Jessica with the TX Mile has given us permission to hold space and there's activity around this on another forum. Try to look out for others and flag them down, sounds like you may be the first one there. We plan to arrive with our motorhome around 6pm Thurs.

    Dan, I do not know if you remember me? I ran 180.0 in my black 09 V sedam March 2011. I have since sold my V to my brother in Odessa. I will be there in a new V couppe I purchased a few weeks ago but will not race it yet as I haven't had time to do the mods. I will holler for you to do great. I saw somewhere where you ran 179 something. Is that your top speed so far? I hope to participate in March, and can hardly wait. DonS.

    Re: October Texas Mile

    Thanks Don of course I remember you. The fastest I have run was 182 mph. I have added more horse power and gone to a taller tire. I was having to shift right before the trap into 6th gear, this was causing me to loose 2-3 mph. I'm hoping to beat Hennessey's 185.6 mph this time out.
    At last count there are 13 V entered. We are going to try to corral all the cars. I will be in the RV flying the gold caddy flag along with a Don,t tread on me flag. Look forward to talking to you.

    PS, I wouldn't be surprised to see someone to 190+

    Glad you hit 182. I like your goal of beating Hennessey. He ran a 189.7 in his wagion but that was with nitrous. I am looking forward in visiting with you and will look you up. What is your RWHP now?
