I hit 151 on the F2's speedo and a very optomistic 148mph on the 900SS.

Rob, that drag strip is near Annapolis (within @30 min?). Its there a hill to the staging area and then you turn left to get to the drag strip? And the venders are all to the left?

Is it bad when the front wheel starts to wobble at 140+ ?

Hey Funksoul, MIR is about 30 minutes from Annapolis, but your description doesn't sound like MIR at all. Unless you are talking about with your back to the end of the strip, then yes, the food and stuff is to the left, and if you are standing at the concessions with your face to it, the Sunnoco gas pumps were back and to the right. There was no hill that I recall, to the staging. You went around the back of the grandstands, and it looped around, and then you pulled up to the staging. To the left when at the tree was a fence running along the outside of the dragstrip wall, and on the other side of the fence, some stands, and mostly trees.

Well according to the officer's radar gun... Just kidding, I never exceed the speed limit (that would be illegal).
