Calder 27/8/04

Well finally i got to calder and gave the XR8 a workout. I had three runs the best being 14.9 @ 91.4 MPH not bad for a stock XR8 with just a K&N filter.

Congratulations, well done!!! Has the bug bitten hard enough to change a few things and go again?

Re: Calder 27/8/04

Thanks guys ..at first i didn't think my time were that good but i talked to a few guys on the night and they convinced me there were for a standard XR8. I'm sure they'll be better next time when i stop getting the clutch out before getting it into gear and i will get the RT times down to. Also next time i'll be running a pipe from the air box to the left brake duct that i have in the spoiler
