SCCA Runoffs at Daytona

I'm going to be running my 2nd gen in E Prod. Never driven at Daytona. What kind of top speed can I expect? Any hints on setup just for Daytona?

What HP does the car make? I'm sure most cars will be aero limited...

A little more than 200 rwhp. I haven't had on the dyno since some improvements when the engine was freshened. My previous best top speed was at Pocono, 144 on the front straight with slightly lower gearing than I will run at Daytona. I'm guessing I will need 150+ to keep up with the BMW's.

I suspect that 150 would be about right. For what it's worth, I think the Z3 guys are gearing for 160.

160 is probably quite safe...
