LOL... because that's how you make a cat go faster, by bumping up the trim! I guarantee you, at 168 and 1550 Sterlings.... it wasn't even tucked deep in.

My point was, they weren't running full out, they were just having fun.

Also the top speed of the Skater that I was was like 155 or so in the video. The 168 was on the left of the GPS for fastest recorded speed. No doubt the Skater is fast but if the MTI wanted to run I believe it would have been in front. Congrats to Joey and Dr. Bill on running great!
Great hanging out with you!

Hey, I thought no back-seat passengers if running over 110-115 mph?

Watch the video when it's released and you'll have your answers. Kinda shocked they ran 155 with the family on board, not such a good idea IMHO. They were in front almost 1/2 - 3/4 the way to the bridge.

Also, those guys loaded up on the trailer and didn't show up for the party... They were given awards and weren't there to collect. Not sure why they ducked out.

Doc said the same thing when I was talking to him and Vinny after the run. Were you on the Skater with Vinny?

Also, I definitely saw 161 in the video.

But anyway, I digress....it's a poker run and not a race!
