Im afraid its nearly crunch time. My Gsi is running a regal phase 1 and precat only. I managed a 14.54 @ the pod couple months ago (first ever time i done it). That silenced all the critics at work and cemented my place at the top of the hierarchy of fast cars in the car park. Now my mate who has a mk 1 polo, has gone and nitrosed it. Its a 1.3 modified with 80bhp progressive shot making the car about 180bhp. Now he reckons he'll beat me 1/4 time, i think it'l b very close.
So me: Astra Gsi 250bhp 275ftlb weight 1200kg (removed bits)
Him : VW polo 180bhp ??unknown torque. 700kg (totally stripped)
I reckon 14.54 is not the best she'll give me.
The situation has now escalated from me vs him to me and my owners club, ie us lot, vs him and his vw polo lot.
Let the drag racing begin!!
We shall set a date. Who's in?
