We had a blast, here it is from my perspective. Renegade E85 testing was a huge success. I slowed the car down to run in the 10.00 class and hit my numbers very consistently, but MPH was about 2-3MPH better than I had seen on 109 race gas in similar weather.

I really wish I could have made it down . It looks like a lot of fun . I agree E85 is pretty awesome stuff as long as you are prepared for it .

Good numbers, those tree times tho, sportsman or .400 (I prefer the .400 myself). You mentioned the car was loving the E85, are you switching back to 93 on the drives home or are you running a true flex fuel tune now. I watched your video and it looked hella fun! You make a lot more steam than I do, were you letting out at the 1000'?

I think it was .400 or .500 pro tree which I'm way outta practice on. Normal tnt is Sportsman. Some have told me better than .2xx is pretty hard in these cars due to all the electronics but who knows.

Nope those were all full runs mostly. I think I chopped the throttle early on two of them. I kept some weight in the car to slow it down to 10.00 and the DA helped.

I just drove home on E85 and loaded my FF tune when I got home. I like to run 10 gallons or so of 93 about once a month to clean things out.

I have the RE/Demon motor and the cam is quite a bit more healthy I think.

If you can keep traction these cars are pretty constant. It's almost unbelievable what these cars are capable of and still be great road tripping cars . E85 is pretty awesome ain't it

Yes the demon / RE cam is much more stout then a hellcat cam but there is still emissions built into it . The cam I had ground is really close to the demon / RE cam but without the emissions part,

It is pretty crazy how good these cars are. I drove 90 miles to the track, raced for 4 days, and drove 90 miles home. Hit the touchless car wash, vacuumed the interior and you'd never know I'd been racing.

Thanks, I love being able to get it setup to be so competitive in a class that doesn't break the bank.

Same here. My pockets are not as deep as most of the racing crowd.

Nice Speedy, to me much more rewarding to drive to & from & race vs trailering. Within reason of course. The farthest I would want to drive & race would be about 250 miles one way witch would be like from Houston to Dallas or something like that, farther than that then a trailer is a must.
