    Coupe turbo - my 1/4 mile times.

    Was up at Crail yesterday ( 12/6 ) and got loads of runs in - 23 in all times will be on www.crailraceway.co.uk shortly, however I thought I'd post a bit of gen up on here anyway for general info

    The car is standard with a derestricted airbox, vectra c air inlet and panel filter and had myself and a passenger on the runs.

    Best time was 15.065 seconds which I reckon is good for standard. Top speed hit of 93mph.
    Average top speed throughout the runs was high 92's and average time 15.2 - 15.3 however the conditions were far from perfect - first few runs were bone dry, then it pissed down, track was like a big pond and it was still chucking it down, so hit some high 15s and the odd 16 but fairplay I had no traction lol - but more than most of the cars I raced in the wet lol.

    Races of note.... My astra vs a focus RS - first time I was away better, winning through first and second, changed to 3rd and he was catching me and over took me not long before the line - winning it. 2nd race was similar, winning through 1st and 2nd, however still passing me in 3rd. Doh, but very happy as there wasn't that much in it when we crossed over the line. Still I bow my head the RS was faster - but not by too much, once I get that precat fitted lol - who knows....

    23 runs, hope you still have some clutch left mate

    Next time, lose the passenger and you will beat the RS

    was def worthwhile - getting the most of my £15 plus used about £20 of petrol to get there and back plus race - which aint bad. A really good day out!

    yeah lose the passenger, and fit the precat bye bye RS hopefully.

    15 second on a standard car @ 93mph is very good!
    My SRi-T as standard + exhaust was doing 15.01 @ 91mph. Had my remap (EDS Phase I) + precat + Viper + powerpipe and managed 14.6 @ 94mph at PV.
