Well my mate managed to get a few vids of my runs and my new pb of 14.33@99mph,i am reasonably happy with that although if i am honest i would of liked a little lower Laughing .

This time i just could not get it off the line well and would be wheel spinning through all of 1st and 2nd gear, so my 60ft times suffered and were higher compared to last time i went Neutral .
More practice (or a lsd Laughing ) is needed i feel and maybe a change from my plant it and hope technique Laughing

Even so it was all good fun and on the plus side my best terminal speed was up 5mph from the previous years 14.57@94mph.

It was also good to have abit of healthy competition though out the day in the form of Gary (UJA) aka The cats eye killer Laughing
Kudos to him for running the fastest time of the day which i beleave was a 14.25@97mph? notworthy

His car flys for the boost and mods that it runs, and how he gets it of the line so well on the 175s he is running i will never know,there will be alot more to come from this car i suspect rockon

Anyway the vids...

My tyre squealer vs volvo, terrible start 15.0@97mph

 

vs a 11 sec capri i think?14.81@97mph



Me 14.52@97mph vs uja 14.44@96mph



And my best run where i actually managed to find a tiny bit of traction in the top end of 2nd gear Laughing  although still only a 2.47 60ft Neutral 
14.33@99mph

Such a laugh, enjoyed every bit of it, I guess mine may be running around the same power as they were both quite evenly matched, although I found you were starting to reel me in at the last part. Till next year, hopefully have a few mods done by then to up the power including a new clutch as the runs didnt do it any favours Laughing . Found myself treating the Transit at work the same off sets of lights all of Monday lol.

Great to meet everyone there, thanks for the pics and videos Johnnyboy, Rich & Casper and a big thanks to the people that sorted the stand!
