good times bigchief. don't worry everyone(other than the jet car)was struggling to get grip at the start. my 60ft times were 0.6secs from all my previous times.i blame the new tarmac.

Not a bad set of times for your first run Keith, the original owner (Not Black Magic) did a 13.8 at his first attempt.

Glad I gave the Pod a miss though, 2 hour waits and a poorly prepared track is disapointing.

Try Brunters, pleny more grip and I'm sure the 11`s will come.

Sunday afternoon was a good time to run, people were leaving to go home and I think the wait was about 20mins at that point. Grip was an issue but to be fair it was very cold and the track didnt get a chance to warm up. Iam sure a bit more practice and the 11s will come, the winner of the rear wheel drive category was a yellow E30 325i with Nos that ran an 11.91 and looked like a banger car!!

You were def doing well for your first go in it bud.

my best time was 13.6 with a 2.46 60ft time and a terminal speed of 110mph, not bad a suppose for my first ever attempt in a rear wheel drive car only running 1bar of boost not set up.
