    Top speed runs

    With unseasonably low temps here in Mass I am super tempted to make a few top speed runs. The air temps are in the 50s tonight with water conditions like glass. I really want some top speed numbers but worry about flywheel bolt sheer at 8700+rpm. Maybe I'll play it safe and just stay home with a Sam Adams or 6

    if your worried about your FW bolts with a tiny 137 wheel
    you might as well save up for a turbo.....

    Well, my OEM flywheel bolts failed on my 2010 T-X 2 days ago after about 135 hours of hard use. Pulling the engine Saturday to see the carnage.

    about how many hours with the 140 wheel?
    are you sure the bolts failed?
