$200 Id still do it. Ever since I did Road Racing I haven't gone to the Drag strip. (I'll go if I am going to test out a mod) All I do now is Auto X and HPDE's after your done (depending on how hard you push it) You should be suprise how well the Redline will run with other cars. I went to a BMW Racing school (lots of M3's and the like) I was out cornering them even though some of the higher powered ones would start to pull on the straights, but next corner or two I was back on their tail.
