drag radials + blower + cold air is quite interesting sometimes

Be very, VERY, carefull with that kind of RWHP - especially in the cold weather - in Iowa. Street tires - even really good ones - can act like great big "hockey pucks" when cold. Add a bit of "wet" and you can be in for the ride of your life.
I've got 540 HP - at the crank - on the Blue Cobra. 90 inch wheel base and 2150 pounds with a full tank. That sucker just LOOKS for a chance to run away from me. In the cold and wet it's REALLY a challenge.
I'm sure you know all this, buddy. I'd just much rather be a pain in the butt and remind you than see you "roll-up" that little beauty. I can tell you - - it happens REAL fast. I hit a wall at Road Atlanta last July at 140 MPH. I'm "bouncing" 3 or 4 times and wondering all the while WTF happened - - and I've been doing this for over a half century.
Y'all have a really great - and safe - day.
I'm usually not too crazy with it. and I have my F150 for when the weather is less then desirable.
