XA at the drags again

I decided at the last moment to take the XA to calder.. I didnt expect to do any better than last time .. but what a difference abusing the clutch makes!!!!
13.73@103 .. dropped time and picked up mph .. and what did I do to drop the time ?? nothng .. just gave it even more off the line
PigDog was there in the fairmont 5.0 and a few of the LS1 guys too
time slip attached
and a picture of PD's fairmont!!!

hey thanks for the pic XA :s5

Yep thats some pretty good times you were getting there. wonder what it'll do after you actually tune it!!

Too bad i couldn't get the old-man-fairmont into the 15's (16.040) but was a good experience and i had a bit of fun. Can't wait to do a full-sick exhaust now and go back for a rerun!

Unfortunately us West Aussies can't go where you go so reports like this and pic's attached even better, lets us know what's happening over the border. Brilliant stuff..

Good to see you improved your times. Good adrenalin rush eh!

Well done (bit green with envy)

Good stuff XA, gotta love the Clevo power. Still legendary to this day.
13.73 is damn damn fast.

Good work to PigDog as well for doing a 16 flat in a stock fairmont, pretty good time i say. With mods you'll easily see the 14's mate. :s5 :s5
