Cripes Simon,

Looking good there until ...... Oh well thats what happens when your pushing the envelope. I am sure you will be back down there to crack the 11's.

Good luck mate.

good on ya Simon- I know you'd be pretty pleased with that! so the engine feels strong? your MPH was better this time (wasn't your last one 122mph?)- that would be because of the higher tune at around 400rwkw?

Either way, it's a bloody good effort mate, really- well done. Shame you had the failure but pushing this hard I think you've done bloody well to get the reliability you have had- do you think the higher launch is squarely to blame or fatigue developing from the previous runs?

I'm interested to know where you shift (rpm) in the turbo.........

Also- what tyres did you run this time around?
