I've seen some other interesting vehicles run ... how about a stock looking
Ranger with SVO wheels and a 5.0? He did okay, but had more power than he knew
what to do with really (single exhaust even!).

The Mustang Club of Central Iowa had their meet at Marshalltown this past weekend,
its a fun go-kart track for some autocross style racin ... you can see my fun
at the track at

>2nd run:
>1.078 reaction (blech) 10.966 63.255
>3rd run:
>1.231 reaction (double blech) 10.987 62.744

I don't know the quarter equivalents of this, but sounds like fun if nothing
else ... a buddy of mine has some Jeeps that have trouble getting over 60 in
the quarter, we're workin on fixing that, but its still funny :)

Just my $.02
