we went to hypertec at bonny bridge for a dyno run for a few cars including the drag evo
unfortunatly the dyno didnt like my car when it came into powerband of my turbos and kept spinning on the dyno and sending the graph backwords
but still recorded this and its atw not fly



vid of a run

i was more than happy to say the least
and drove about for a while

well then it was time for crail first one of 2009










the car managed an 11.75 @126 mph with a crap launch and crap 60ft time
that was just roling up to line and going tyres still at 32psi and heaters stereo etc all on

unfortunatly my box decided to throw 3rd gear on my final run due to worn syncros and box and a very harsh clutch

now this takes me to last nov where i was driving home from work and oil presure droped

took it back to checkpoint and drained the oil only to find bits of shells in it arrrrrrrrr


so back to the drawing board

so i took some time to reflect on my future and was ready to give up on her

but you just cant keep durty betsy down

her moto is bigger better faster stronger lol

so engine in for a rebuild again and a few more mods planned

also decided she was a bit to heavy and needed to loose weight "saves me givving up chiper supers "

so bought so far is this

half cage is coming out
and this is going in t45


also orderd my lexan windows with sliders
new dl bumper

striped out the interiour only 2 buckets and harneses are going back in
also decided to get a link g4 as it has a few more options than the power fc
