    Would love to Dale but i'm busy that day.

    Do you 'prep' the car before running? i.e change tyre pressures etc

    oh defo take the TC off mate! yeah, let the fronts down and pump the rears up! also try running with as little fuel as you can! you could even try some skinny steelies on the back?

    remove the aerial and fold the wing mirrors in

    also might be an idea to run the car on V-power (if you don't already) and clean the TB out.

    13's........ more like low 11's! removing the aerial gets you 1.5seconds off min!



    seriously, if the weather/temp is right and you get a good start, minimal wheel spin etc. then I reckon you could get a low 14 easy and even touch the 13's
