I had the car out earlier and ended up playing cat & mouse with a road bike on one of my favourite roads
It was a great opportunity to see what the car is now capable of. Boy do these Webers sound amazing @6000rpm

Shaved nearly 2 sec off my PB tonight

14.54 seconds, 94 MPH. The car next to me was an XR5 turbo

Really good results there mate. Would have been a nice feeling beating the xr5!
Have you got the rest of the dyno graph?

Cheers

Thanks. Yes the breakdown is good. As you can see I was not concerned about reaction time. Just getting a good jump and that paid off. The XR5T was standard. There was also 2 modified ones there running low 14's.
I was really surprised how my times compared to many of the cars there. Plenty of cars I thought would be faster than me, running 15's.
 
There was a Mercedes G wagon (G65 AMG) as pictured below running 12's! hahahaha
