    Talking total vauxhall power day

    saturday we attended woodbridge airfield for a total vauxhall power day the yellow monaro managed 190.2 mph in a flying mile and sounded truely awsome mk2 gte was doing 12.6 in a standing quater and managed 169 mph i took jamies srit which he managed a 13.8 in a quarter mile and i managed 151 through the mile run there were some other great cars aswell including a mint mk1 gte here are a few pics of the day and a big thanks to dougy for arangeing it and will be in mays issue along with jamies car on the cover







    this man is a true lunitic and cut short his final high speed run because the car became lite at 160 plus mind you he was getting wheel spin in 5th gear although the tarmac wasnt the best for quarter mileing



    if this thing could get traction it would be a balistic missile still it achived a quarter mile in mid 12s and 190.2 mph the guy is now having a bigger intercooler fitted and some form of traction control fitted



    clet corsa b

    z2olet corsa c 14 flat and 144mph





    a 13.8 on this surface and without a limeted slip dif is pretty good i think for a front wheel drive car, with danny sport sorting out some quaife difs with good weather at pvs on a propper drag strip we should be able to get in to the mid to low 13s but we shall see

    Regarding the MK2:

    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
    Taken from Astra-MK2. Stunning car imo.

    Looks like a good day, nice pictures. Love the Mk1 GTE, used to have a 5 door in white a long time ago, one of the best cars I had.
