I've done a couple with the engine straight out of the crate and untuned, twin westy roofracks and full microbus interior with a massive headwind (big bang last year) I got a best of 14.8 @92mph. It was only putting out 166bhp at that point. I blew a barrel apart and haven't run since. The engine is now tuned well and over 300hp @1bar, it goes substantially faster now :wink:
