    Maybe not the drag strip, my CHP Polara, screen capture from a video taken during one of the first shakedown runs. Wasn't even going that fast, maybe 55-60 but there was a dip.

              In the rear, the CHP in 69 only had a steady red (spot light) to the front, and flashing red or amber to the rear.

              This was about 90 days before I finished the car.

                  I was at that race, at my favorite local track. I'm a lousy photographer, and my phone has a lousy camera, but this is what I got that day.

                                  Here's 1 of our '69RR last Sunday first time out with new combo, rooky driver at this level, we got 5 runs in, 1st 2 were getting used to it, then went, 10.74@124>10.64@124.9>10.56@125.8...1.51/1.50/1.50 60ft's, race weight 3836lbs, 40mph headwind and through exhausts.....but there are issues with traction even though it don't look like it.
