    Astra G 1.8 Quarter Mile times

    Just curious what sort of times people have got and with what modifications, I was down at a drag strip today driving my brothers car and it has just made me want to modify my car and take it down the trip.

    Cheers.

    Was going to take it up today but it was a fair drive away and £50 entry, so me and my brother went up in his car and split the costs, there is another one in august so I might go to that one. My brother had the slowest car there which was a bit disappointing, there were some serious cars there! Fastest I got in his car was 16.9 seconds, fastest he got was 16.1, this was the first time I ever drove his car, was totally different trying to drive it compared to mine.

    16s would be good, I wonder how hard it would be to get 15s or even 14s, hmmm.

    A stock 1.8 would never get a 15, more like a 17-18. They have a very small torque band. I think a tuned NA would get a mid to high 16. Your not going to get under that unless you go FI.

    Well I have found someone who has went down it in a 1.8 and they got high 16s with just an exhaust and panel filter, I think because of the close ratio gear box it makes it that bit quicker.

    yeh, high 16s would sound about right for a standard astra 1.8

    i was at pod a few months ago and i ran 16.4 in vectra V6 with the slowest auto box in the world lol

    but my mate ran 16.9 in a (stripped to within an inch of its life) 1.4 rover 200
