Couldn't get any power down in 1st gear but still not bad for a 20 year old shed ;-)
nice, there fast cars really considering how little needs to be done to beat some of the cars on your list
That's a good terminal speed. You be low/mid 11s at a guess with the grip to back it up.
Going good Mark, 122mph too.
I got 11.59 and 114mph then broke it on my next run last year at TOTB
not bad at all for a shed !
did you go japfest mark?
myself and jimmy were looking over a white R which must have been yours
It wasn't my car you were looking then at as I didn't go ;-)
Grip wasn't very good as its an old concrete airfield, my best 60 ft time was just over 2 secs. The GTR that did the 10 sec run is around 650 bhp I think and owned by the bloke that runs Dragon performance.
:shock: That could even put you in 10s territory if you go by the theory of every .1s at the start is worth .2 at the end as my best 60ft is 1.6 so about 0.5s better than "just over 2s"
I'm still only running 1.6 bar at the moment so I hate to think how quick it would be at 2 bar + :shock:
Was it JAPFEST 2 at donnington park you was looking over a white GTiR? That would of been mine
what was the astra running?
What you waiting for? get her screwed up ;-)
I'm not sure yet if the clutch will handle that sort of boost, and i'm not driving the car to its full potential at 1.6 bar on the sprints and hillclimbs as it is so it can stay there for now. Unfortunately the car's performance is ahead of the drivers at the moment :lol:
Not sure as i never actually saw what it was, i turned up about 2:30 in the afternoon, did 6 runs and then disappeared home again
My favourite run of the day was up against an 8 litre Dodge Viper, it's quite nice watching something like that disappearing in your rear view mirror :lol:
Wasn't driven by Vicky Butler Henderson was it....
Won't these Viper drivers ever learn
Done Castle Hill Climb at the week end, Damp on Sat but dry on Sun. Now running on new slicks, and starting uphill I managed a 1.96 on one run and a 1.86 for my second run.
As you know this is always 64ft. This was my best ever start, although I could not match my class record that has stood for a few years now. With this sort of start you would be quite a bit quicker. Den.
Must be those nice new tyres Den ;-)
That's a really quick 64 ft time, especially uphill 8) The drag racing was just a bit of fun so I'm not too worried about my time, I'm off to turkey next week so hopefully will have a nice break then come back ready to lower my personal best a bit more at wiscombe in September!
Danny Fennal eat your heart out, I'm the new dodge viper beater :lol:
