    day out at RAF woodbridge with total vauxhall

    yesterday went to raf woodbridge with tv targets i wanted to achive were

    Top speed: 170mph
    Speed @ 0.5 mile : 150mph
    Quarter Terminal : 125
    Quarter Time : 12.59


    What i got

    Top Speed: 169.1mph
    That was in under a mile though, using hardly any of the available space really, but the car was a little unstable, we think the tracking might be out after my off at bedford a couple of weeks ago

    Speed @ 0.5 mile : 149.92mph
    Poxy 0.08mph off, SO close!
    Tried dialing in a little more boost but by then the headwind we were running into had really picked and it would only must 148 then

    Quarter Terminal: 126.5mph
    Well happy with that, slightly more than we expected

    Quarter Time: 12.63
    4 hundreths of a second off setting a new PB for the car, but given it was just on fairly poor quality bit of tarmac, we're feeling fairly happy.
    He ran about 15 quarters all in the 12 out of about 20 attempts, with I think it was 10 runs under 12.8, so it was being mega consistant really

    the performance is mind blowing, the car is fully home grown built by me tuned by chip engine spec'd by me and chip after he taught me what i needed to know to have informed decisions on what spec i want and its very satisfying to meet the goals you have set.

    not only did the the car do the times we wanted i drove it 210 miles there and the same back apart from changing the wheels and some plugs i never had to touch the car all day.

    so in a way the speed is only one part of the achievments this weekend


    couple of other figures from the day

    0-60 5.1 seconds
    0-100 9.3
