Hmmmmm, I've got some catching up to do!!!

Look like I may need to use a bit more than 15 psi and I need to get my ass down to the Pod, as the grip factor in comparison to Crail would help me out a lot!!!

Well done Mr Nicholls you jammy git.

Little do you know, I tweaked your car for you last Sunday, and that's why you broke into the 10's!

Cheers

Dave

Dam, I guess I wont see it run 2moro then!

Wonder if CPL will attempt to better it.....
will be an achievement for them to move from 11.3s to 10.8s in one jump.:)
but fair play to anyone that does.

i can remember going to USC about 7 years ago when andy was running 12.9s and winning the fwd 2 litre turbo class in his maestro lol :clap:

Power isn't the necessarily the answer....grip is.

1.6 second 60ft times are possible in a FWD with the correct setup and track preparation.

This is why I am loosing so much time on my 1/4 mile because I simply can't get the car to hook up.

If I could get the car to grip even in 2nd gear, it would jump to mid 11's no problem.

Damn you you stupid car, grip you piece of s**t!!!

andy always said he'd retire from fwd cars once he'd run a ten, we'll see:)

There you go Pete, something to aim for :) :clap:

I must say that is awesome for s FWD to crack the 10's. What size wheels and tyres has he got up front?

It runs on 275's on a 15" wheel.

Not sure if it's a 26"(50 profile) or 28" (60 profile) tyre though.

I remember going to UFC before it became USC and high 13s would take that class. (My old montego came 3rd with a 14.1 before I bought it)
we used to go when the fwd class was won by martin in his maestro turbo, or andy with his the year after, and loads of other monty turbos there etc :)
campsite used to be (still is) mental at night, car fires, people racing round tents etc. got too mad and we took the cars off site to a B+b:)
