I just hope it doesnt rain. I've had my car up to 110-120mph on the highway. I dont wanna be limited to 100mph in a GTR. 😄

I don't feel quite so bad now. A friend only did 116 in a race-equipped S2000, and in the video I just posted to my previous post, the driver said an SLS only did 159 when dry. So 103 in a heavy rain when following an instructor isn't that bad. IMHO I had a lot of room to run even then. Still disappointing. I've done 150 on the street in my foolish youth. Cars doing 70 look like they're parked. Would NEVER do that now!

I knew it would rain the day I signed up last June. A little black cloud follows me everywhere I go.

Good luck!!

Oh yeah on a track and with that car's abilities you coulda pushed harder on the straights, but we have to work within the limits the instructors give us, sadly. Hopefully you get a chance to do it again. 😄
