Damn.....all of this makes me wanna get out there.
Congrats again. Sorry I couldn't have been there to witness it in person but psyched the car finally went what I knew it could. Glad to have helped.
Going from 13.4 to 12.6 just by tweaking the same setup goes to show there is more to going quick than just having the parts. No doubt the weather played a role but still. And to run 12.6-12.7 that many passes in a row proves it was no fluke or one hit wonder.
I already thanked Mark for motivating you enough to listen to everything I was saying 😁
Let me know when you are ready to go quicker. I bet we can wring a little more out of it. Might not be easy but it is possible.
We should setup some rocking chairs in one of the trailers this year at world cup finals.
Huge jump, well done!!
The season ain't over yet, can't let this thread die down
Loaded my gear in the mk2 and took a trip down to atco on Sunday morning for the IFO event they were hosting. Rained the whole 2 hour drive down there, luckily it cleared up by lunch time and they let us race. Snapped an axle on my 2nd qualifying pass, had to swap in my spare, which I had broke a cv joint on few weeks early up at island dragway and quickly fixed just so I had something for a backup. Weather wasn't the greatest, mid 60s and humidity in the air after all the rain so I really wasn't expecting to run another pb. Knocked off a few more back to back to back 12.8X passes, all at 103mph, I will chalk the lower mph up to the muggy weather. Ended up going a few rounds in brackets and taking home a few bucks after the event was called off early due to a fist fight between a racer and a track official They just split the pot with the 7 of us that were left out of 40 some odd cars that were running brackets. Ben also went round after round in brackets with his mk3, he was one of the 7 left at the end of the event. All in all, not a bad day, but not a great one either. I got one more test and tune to attend before the season ends, hopefully that musters up another pb.
I'm going on Friday. I'm trying to get the harlequin on this list. I went [email protected] last week, losing my throttle adjustment on the top end. I took the back seats out, and I should find time to dump my a/c before then.
Its almost February.....that means race season starts in another month or so
Hard to imagine, we're still buried. At least a foot still on the ground at Cecil.
Looks like race season has started in P.R. at least.
Mk2 with a built 3.2 24 went [email protected] yesterday.
in a 2300+lb street car nonetheless!! Will try and get details posted up here shortly.
Thats no worse than anything any of us did and kept the cover on with speed holes!
