Woops! I hit the wrong key...  That should be 312 feet.  Damn numeric keypads...

It's roughly the length of a football field.

Thanks for catching that Lee - I need more coffee Grin.


{Edit} Stil - if a Ferrari can't stop inside of 100 feet from 55 - I think the only way one could really claim it "stops on a dime", it to run it into a large brick wall Smiley.  Maybe turns on a dime?  Nah - I don't have a 43' dime... (http://www.gillig.com/New%20GILLIG%20WEB/phantom.htm) - T
