Default 192

I should not have done it. But I took my 'vette out today on the US Highway (not the big interstate, just the four lane US road) near here. No traffic. The supercharger has been repaired/upgraded. It has staged methonal injection now as the HP crosses over about 700, to cool the intake charge (and give it a bit more fuel). There is a three mile stretch I know is straight, no entrances or exits. I did the once over at legal speeds and then on returning the other way, I nailed it. I hit an indicated 192 in slightly less than one mile before I felt I should shut it donw.

They just don't make them like they used to, huh? That would definitely be a shocker.
