Re: Calder Tonight 2/7/04

It was a great night, lots of good cold turbo air.
I ran a new PB of 12.437@113.02mph. This was in auto performance mode. The car seemed to struggle for the last few hundred rpm's and definately has more in it. I tried to drive it in manual mode but couldn't quite get it right. There's always next time.
I'm looking forward to 4 weeks time when i can get out there again. Its good to catch up with the guys.

Geea.

Re: Calder Tonight 2/7/04

dammit mark, looks like i'll have to prepare my ute for a trip back there you beat me by 1/100th!!.....

Good times there, i knew there would be more in your ute and you have now shown that, also that the unichip has done the world of good dropping down a bit more

Our 2 tonne hay haulers are starting to show their worth

Good on geea too, alex better get that GT moving we are nearly equalling your times! lol

Re: Calder Tonight 2/7/04

Way to go guys, well done on the PB's!
Mark my van does 1.9's 60ft if I Ieave the LPG tank behind the back wheels half full, ballast I think?
A 2.09 is fantastic for the BIG ute, may be chuck some bags of cement in the back as well as leaving the tailgate on. lol

Re: Calder Tonight 2/7/04

Congrats to all, yhea 13.68 now Mark, what mph? great stuff i think its only a matter of time, At least with Autos, consistency is your friend. Also congrats on Rods 13.0, again, that is only a matter of time too. Yhea Matts Monaro finally is hauling down some times to match that MPH. I should be out there next week, pending

Good to hear, OFR is still on a roll by the looks of it.

I'll be back in a few weeks to do some serious testing too :s6:
