I've been told about and been invited to a 'runway speed day', to be held next month. (NZ XR's - anyone interested in attending if it goes ahead - will be at Ohakea Base west of Palmerston North. Police will attend with Laser and Stealth etc, so you could test your jammer/stealth detector etc at the same time). On that note, one run my co worker did on his Blackbird the cop could not get a reading on the laser and he was ONLY doing 260k.
I know you guys in Aust have done some of these - get on a runway, blat as fast as poss, then remember to brake at other end. The one concerned is run by a Nissan club. Some of the Skyline boys get a bit 'shy' and tend to opt out of the speed runs. Last meet there were some interesting machines - a Ferrari, a Lamborghini, maybe a Gen 3 SS, and some hot bikes too. Sounds like there was a lot of fun had by those who dared.
Question - how does the XR8 rate in such speed trials. Can one expect to be eaten by the ricers. Should I just take the 200SX and pretend its my car and not the wifes?
