Best speed I recorded during test runs was 147+. I have record in Ohio with a different 1988 SPG at 160.715 in the standing mile on concrete. No problem with traction there.
Yes, the salt is a problem for not just the racecar, but the support vehicles, and trailers. The stuff is really sticky, and if it rains, the surface turns into a pond/lake, like driving in the ocean.
So, the preventative measure is really pretty simple -- I bought two dozen aerosol cans of Pam, and used probably 6 of them, maybe more. One per wheel well, then looked at the areas where the tires kick it up and pammed the crap out of those areas.
Then afterwards, scooped out about 100 pounds from the wheel wells, it wouldn't fully attach with the pam spray. Set up a low pressure sprinkler manifold and ran water under the car on low pressure for a number of hours, pulling the rotating heads on wheels like what you use in your yard, until it all melted off.
When I built the car, it was sprayed with galvanizing stuff, and then por 15 type primer and paint in all those areas of concern. What a monsterous job it was and still is for maintenance........
