Horsepower limits. Now there is a new one. I hope the legislators don't get wind of that idea. Maybe they would come up with a new version of the old British horsepower tax!!

Until you see portable dyno units, stenciled with Washington State Police on the side: I don't think you have to worry about max horsepower.

Show up to the state run chassis dyno if you want to fight this ticket. Have a nice day.

Oh man can you even imagine a Horse Power limit.. Having Hot Rods in some states are hard enough. If horsepower would have to be measured, and restricted,, that would be something..

LOL,,

In Texas, Many Many hot rods would be in trouble.

Juice,
