Put in a cage and proper safety gear. When a tire comes apart at 199 and you lose control of your ride, maybe you'll be thankful for the cage and harnesses if you barrel roll a few times?

Safety equipment is life insurance. I wouldnt gamble with my life if I was driving those speeds, but to each their own.

Btw, what do you drive? This new site format doesn't let me see any sigs.

Don't you need a fast car?

I'd look at auto swapping your car, even though it is slow already, as I have heard 4th gear is tricky.

They won't let you run anymore if you break 200 without a cage. But go do it anyway. At 750 whp, you're not going to break 200, so don't worry about it.

All joking aside, I talked to a guy who was just there. He has a cage and said that after watching a few super cars built for 200mph+ wreck, he would not risk running without one.

4th gear matters fer sher

Sweet. shouldnt need a cage then.

Lol, I was going to say your car isnt 200mph capable bud. Looks like 2 people have already beat me to it.

These cars are aerodynamic bricks. I bet the S550 cars have more top speed potential.

Ive never seen anyone suck more 5.0 dick than you brah.

EDIT: just going over the video in the link you provided.. Im noticing:
1. Stock gearing, (I have 3.73s)
2. 50+ more HP at the wheels (with 3.73s vs his stock 3.31s which means that actually abit more had I dynoed on stock gearing)
3. He seems to have short shifter and went into 6th?

Doing the Math I should be able to clip 200mph just around 6800RPM in 5th Gear. If I dont run out of road....

What does a 5.0 have to do with your car not capable of running 200mph in the mile? Even a fellow 13/14 GT500 owner with more mods then you knows you aren't at the 200mph level. :lol:

Oh trust me I plan on it.

As for whether or not I can pull it off, that wasn't even in the question of the thread. But I like shit like that. Should be fun to come back and make a few faggits eat their words.

I would make triple sure you tires are good for that speed then go for it. They only require a 4 point roll bar which in reality isn't going to do shit in a 200 MPH rollover. That said, I'd be very surprised if your car goes 200. Regardless, make sure to dump in a lot of extra octane and have something to watch IAT's on or else you'll be in for an expensive ride. A mile of WOT is no joke. This isn't something you should plan on driving in off the street for and just ripping off a couple passes.

It's not a knock on your car, just being a realist. Again, these cars (s197 in general) are aerodynamic bricks. Just look at it! Hope you get it on video too. :D

For reference I remember this thread, I had to search for it:
http://www.svtperformance.com/forums/threads/13-6-kit-hitting-200mph-chime-in.1055635/

Have you done a run in Mexico to see where you stand at the moment? use the track apps and see how fast you can get within 1 mile.
