Default Why do I even try?

Sitting here watching the Mecum auction. Guy says "Why did anyone pay $280K for a Ford?" (2005 Ford GT). I tell him that car is fast as crap and would a blast to drive. He says "My Infiniti M37 will do 260." I call bullshit. He says "Yes it will. That's what the speedometer goes to."

When I was selling cars, you wouldn't believe what some people thought about their car's value, performance, gas mileage, rarity, etc.

I work for Nissan and I can unequivocally say...bullshit. They are governed at 147 mph at the ecu and begin to go into fail safe (retards cylinder fire). With the governor bypassed electronically top speed is about 154 mph. I know of one with a few mods (intake and exhaust) that will hit 160. That's it, folks.

That is about 260 kph.

He's a great candidate to sell a bridge, a magic pill to lose weight, or a guaranteed 20% return on an investment.

Everybody already has magic pills Johnny. Trade name is Viagra! The 20% return on an investment though, I'm very interested in. Actually I want the Hillary return. Invest 1k get back 100k within the year. Now that is what I call a return.

2 waze to measure speed, cop radar, and GPS, out of the two, I think GPS is more accurate.....I know my speedo is good till 80 witch is really 78mph.....

at 100 mph, it's really only 94 mph.....and so forth......

tach over indicated 10-15% also, proven by driving the HEI with a digital audio osciallator, driving a power transistor, running off the tach out of the HEI.....a cliplead setup, easy do, and tracked by my Tektronics Scope,

tach is from a '75+ shark, in my '72 hotrod.....so it's electronic, not cable....

and it over indicated about 4-800 rpm above 2500 rpm.....worse a higher RPM's of course.....

600 rpm idle is ten revs/second or 5 sparks/second per cylinder....50 sparks/second is really slo for the electronics.....but 6000 rpm for the engine....

When ya start working with ole Hildawg, ya gotta be careful or you'll end up committing suicide. The Arkancide is three shots to the back of the head and the ME/Coroner will swear it's suicide.
