Hey guys

Looking to go to the Texas Mile. I'm from Houston. Anyone here planning on going? I need to get a helmet, gloves, and fire extinguisher. Anyone have experience in temporarily mounting one securely in the car?

I will be running Michelin PS4, 600rwhp. I doubt I'll go any faster than 180.

Not running this time, but I plan visit on Saturday. Be sure your helmet is SA2010 or newer, M rated helmets will not pass inspection. At 600rwhp you should be in the low 180's depending on weather. I was able to go 182 bone stock, 186 with 620rwhp in good air conditions. It will be a great time, good luck!

If I'm not mistaken, fire extinguishers are not required for cars trapping less than 199 mph.

I guess you're right! Thanks for the correction.

I did 185 with low 500 hp. Lethal Racing showed my car was 575, Pat G and Kurt's dyne showed my car did 480hp. At 600 I would think you will be close to 190. I build an extinguisher mount that I put in front of passenger seat. Bolted to the front mount bolts

It's funny you mention that, because my car hit 600 whp at Pat and Kurt's dyno recently. It's the only Dyno I have been on.

Make sure your tires are not date coded past 7 years, you will not pass tech inspection if they are.

Bone stock (~440whp-ish) to 620whp and it only got you 4mph more?? Other circumstances involved?

Wind plays a pretty big part. Tail wind or head wind and wind speed of course.
