Looks like you didn't get the best start on that one shinny or was it a modded scooby?

Thanks topgun.

Not sure what to expect at the start of the day or what the car would be like, but after the first run it was great, came away from the pod very pleased, much better than i expected.

Can't wait till next year.

No - my start sucked :no:

I was having trouble putting the power down so my 60ft times weren't great... 13.81 was the best I achieved tho I was expecting better. Still, my tyres are approaching the legal limit and I couldn't drop the pressure too far to help as I couldn't pump them up again for the 122 miles trip home :blush:

Next time better tyres and lower pressures... and probably more agression! That video was my last run of the day and I was just running for fun by then :clapping:

Oh, and the scooby was a P1... that's all i know about it...

Thanks Mick :th:

I had a look at the 1/4 mile and dyno tables on IMOC, saw low 13s for roughly the power I should have and, in true Top Gear style, thought "how hard can I be?" :laughing

I got smoked by a gen7 Celica on my first run... :whistling:

I'm very glad to find it was this one: http://www.celica-club.co.uk/forum/inde ... opic=84209

Stripped out, forged rebuild and a super charger :clapping:
