Can I have the observatory the money to buy one would pay for! I'll do
a few billion light years in a fraction of an RPM of the main axle!

Correct domain name is arvig and it is net not com. Prefix is correct.
Third character is a zero rather than a capital "Oh".

I presume that is in miles? Thnink so, cause 140 kilometers per hour isn't
that fast and/or impressive :-)

At least there's no chromatic "abhoration"... maybe just a couple of G's.

but it doesn't redline until 6800 rpm. the owner's manual says it is good to
173MPH but I think that is a bit optimistic. I haven't taken it more than
the 140MPH I showed but it definitely had more punch to it....

don't count your apos yet: that photo was taken in March of 2000.

right on all counts. If you look closely at the photo you can see the Km/h
marks too...

60mph is about 100Km/H as I recall.

so I must have been doing about 233Km/H at the time the snap was taken.

not so sure of the chromatic "abhoration": here it is in color....

Again this was taken way back when: maybe in late '99. It was before the
aero kit and the rear quarter panel airscoops were installed.....
