    Talking Scottyboy 1/4 mile run @ PVS

    Got loads and loads of footage from saturday and sunday at PVS, but I uploaded this video for your enjoyment!!

    Scottyboy on the 1/4 mile with his awesome astra 888.

    Loads and loads of power but not really able to get the power down, if you listen carefully you can hear the wheels spinning in 1st and 2nd gear with ease!!

    Love the car and it was great to see it in the flesh!

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    i had to cut a much needed loo break to watch scottyboy go down the track
    he was opposite a yellow vx220 at the time, so i ran up to the hill, waited for what seemed an hour, and that tractor kept poncing up and down lol.. so we stood there for ages

    got a vid, will check if its any good tomorrow.. but the times were good, i could see/hear the wheels spinning though, which was a shame, but i think expected. When the LSD is fitted, i reckon the times will improve a lot to be honest, but still impressive nevertheless

    Scotts reaction time wasnt great on the first run but was definately alot better on the second - he says he is definately going to do a bit of practicing - cant remember what his second timing was but Jace is right with what he run first.

    dont forget it was very very hot on Sunday, one of the reasons not many cars were running this year! still a hell of a lot more to come from Scotts car once the work is finished

    Think everyones times were down by the sound of it. Could only get 14.89 in the bus compared to 12 runs under 14.5 even as low as 14.24 for one run back on April 1st. Got my best run of the day when I forgot to turn the TC back on and spun all the way through 1st and half of 2nd and that's with proper sticky tyres on too. Don't suppose anyone has any pics of my bus on the strip do they? The misses was 'too busy' to get any for each of my runs
    Be Happy
