I was thinking about this too, but i think online this just leads to forum bickering that gets nowhere. Regional top speed trials- (midwest, east coast, west coast) would solve this.
We really don't need bonneville or anything like that- if we just come up with different classes and regulations ourselves we could totally all drive out to said spot and drag along a 2-3 mile spot and record everyones top speeds. plus it would be eyewitnessed and official.
like a mini-rally. it could be a lot of fun.
im gonna brainstorm this for next year.
