OFR moves into top gear... Rod decided to take all his work gear out of the back maybe.. I think he said something about kicken Mark out of the tray?

Re: Rod Runs 12.62!!!!!

Went to Calder tonight, Rod ran a 12.62 on a 6o foot 1.90 @ 110. mph

Also done a 12.94…this has to be the fastest BA in Australia. Well done to Rod he has done many pass’s and he deserves this I am rapt for you mate…..thx to G&D PERFORMANCE for there support and APS and there Unichip for there fine tuning skills..

And before knockers start knocking we did remove the head light lens for the new OFR CAI the lens was placed back in the car so no can say we dropped weight, the headlight stayed fitted to the car the whole time….

Hamo what a Star ET: 15:01 Great stuff little brother, your little AU6 is flying that’s the time we were doing in our V8’s 6 months back.. And again APS Unichip tuning took Hamo’s last PB from 15.57 to 15.01 that’s awesome,. from a Forte that’s good going..

Goes to show there has been a bit written lately about piggy back chips, I can see clearly wich one is on top…Go get it boys et:12.62 is the time to beat

Geea, Craig your dedication to your car was rewarded tonight getting to Calder at 4pm letting your car cool right down 12.32 great time for your xr6t…

Met RaceGt tonight his 1st time out in his BA GT 13.76…..

And many thx to all the LS1 owners that made our numbers up so we can run from the infield..

Thx to Motomk for listening to all my crap all night..

Guess who’s on Top? OFR we don’t just own the track we put the fire on it…

I am Rapt…

Re: Rod Runs 12.62!!!!!

Top effort Rod, well done. You not only got your 12, you got a mid 12 with a sensational mph.


Good things come to those that work bloody hard for them!

The above comment equally applies to you Geea, well done.

Big Mick, what about Hamo he is an OFR member also, he took 0.556 of his PB with just a Unichip and tune...

Re: Rod Runs 12.62!!!!!

thanks Guys
appreciate you support, it was a great night out for the BA's

i think there is a lot of people behind the scenes that deserve the support more than i as i was only the driver
the following are the people that have helped make our Pursuit the fastest BOSS in the country

Air Power Systems
Battens Performance Tuning
G&D Performance
SS Inductions

special thanks to Mark (XRFPV8 ) & "O.F.R" without Marks help none of this would ever have happened

thanks to all who have put in the hard yards to get the BA's on the map

regards
rod

Sorry Hamo, I read through Marks post too quickly, well done. You take the prize for the biggest improvement in PB for OFR tonight. Now go back next week and get that 14.

That is an impressive improvement from just a UniChip and tune.
