    The races in Nevada are the "Silver State Classic" and the "Nevada Open Road Challenge". The first is run the 3rd weekend in September. The second is run the third weekend in May. The web site is http://www.silverstateclassic.com/home.htm. There a total of 4 videos for sale at that web site. This is not actually a race, but a rally, except for the unlimited class. Each driver attempts to average a certain speed, ranging from 95 MPH to 170 MPH. Last May I averaged 147.3604 for the 90 miles, with a top speed of 165 on radar. There is a corvette that hit 227 MPH but didn't finish. It is truly an adrenalin rush. If anyone has an interest in running these events pls email me. The 90 mile record average is 207.7801. This is by the way a surveyed 90 miles.

    Callaway is the place to get the big OZ's from. That's where I bought mine. Believe it or not,their prices beat everyone. My 18x10's and 18x12.5's cost me $3K for the set.

    Flag Thanks Brook

    Thanks for bailing me out on the details of the Navada Open Road challenge and the Silver State Classic. I have read about these and this looks like way too much fun. It must be a real kick to participate. Tom
    P.S. Read in one of the truck papers about a Freightliner Century that ran an average of 90 something with a top end of 127. I think he was from GA. Hauled a load out there with his wife as co-driver, ran the race and hauled frieght back home.

    how many of you guys have tried a mild nitrous hit
    in 6th gear.

    I wonder what the top end would be but I fear the engine
    would detonate pretty bad trying this.

    maybe at 5K RPMs, a 100 HP shot wouldn't be too bad.

    I like Julio's port nitrous setup, very slick.

    OZ wheels are fantastic love em, & surprised that
    callaway would enter as a bargain. their stuff is
    a bit pricey for C12s nowadays (how about they
    resurrect the twin turbo ZR1 to go with LPEs cars!!!

    hey hooper hows that next issue of KOTH coming. love
    to see more posts about the twin turbo cars if you hear anything.

    The latest KOTH issue is coming along fine and will have a full feature on the first LPE TT ZR-1. The car looks like the ultimate sleeper. Hope you enjoy the article,,I did.

    The NO2 is a great idea. At 5000 RPM in sixth you would be doing approximately 220 MPH. I can only get about 3300 RPM in 6th. My car won't hold much than that(low 150's).
    Go to this address http://www.chaseracing.com it computes
    various speeds at a specific RPM in each gear. It will allow you to see the effects of gear and tire changes. Although the changes are liner and do not allow for such factors as tire growth, it is close.

    so has anyone tried nitrous in 6th??? I have 4.10s so I think that this might be just the ticket to pull the gear and make the 200 mph club. Am I crazy??? maybe 100 hp of squeeze would be just enough to build the torque to do it.

    thanks for any advice.

    Default N2O

    6th gear is too tall. Any attempt at 200 would require changing rear end ratio and using 5th. 100 HP isn't near enough for 200 and the aerodynamics arn't near good enough.
    The C-4 is probabily good enough for 171-175 MPH. I've had mine to 168 and still had a little left. I was a 3% grade, down hill at 4000 ft.

    I agree. Stick a 3.07 cog in there and run it in 5th gear.
    BTW,are you referring to the Pony Express 100 when you mentioned the Nevada Open Road Challenge?

    Default the Nevada Open Road Challenge

    Clint
    The Nevada Open Road Challenge is run on Nevada Hwy 318 the same course as the Silver State Classic Challenge. The difference is the Nevada Open Road Challenge is run 3rd weekend in May and the Silver State Classic Challenge is run 3rd weekend in September. Everything is the same with the exception of the dates. 2001 is sold out but there are still openings for both races in 2002. About 50% of the entries are new at every race. Give it a try.


    The Pony express is run from Battle Mountain Nevada to Austin Nevada on Nevada hwy 305.
