    You have to do the run with street tires. This is also why you have to calibrate the speed sensor against your GPS. You need instantaneous speed and full load at the proper speed. With 1/4 mile slips 1) they are often wrong), 2) it's a calculated average speed, not instantaneous, and 3) race tires grow quite a bit at 100+ mph.

    I'm aware of all of those factors, but knew it would be closer than the 103 mph that BE was showing. Went on a cruise yesterday and my BE reads a full 10% less mph than GPS mph (my speedometer was somewhere in between). Now I just need to figure out where to modify BE.
