    Santa Pod Sunday 24th (Run What Ya Brung)

    Hi everyone here is what I have found, Run What Ya Brung (Santa pod) on January the 24th and was wondering if any of you are planning to go down. I will do my best not to miss it, as I really want to see what I can do, I am hoping for sub 14 sec, anything less would be a bonus.

    Share your thoughts and if it is enough of us we could drive down as a convoy...

    If all goes well, we could post our results on here later on.

    Check their site for more info and prices... http://www.santapod.co.uk/calendar.php

    It is a safe way way to find out what the cars can do, rather than risking it on public roads and for me it's worth spending that 100 all in including cost of petrol and travel... The bad weather could cause some probs but we'll wait and see...

    Would quite like to come but I don't know if it'd even be worth doing the nearly 300 mile round trip with a 1.6. Hardly awesome acceleration :D

    Santa Pod isn't too far from me but I've got a few bits to do on the car before I drag it. I'm hoping to make it to the pod a bit later in the year. My Nurburgring trip in June is my priority

    Will be quite a busy day guys IMO. First one of the year (as the 17th is cancelled). There's about 15 of us going from the Mk5 Forum going and a load of 8P S3's too.. Oh and expect some quick times as well as there's some quick motors going. Possibly a Mk5 Ed30 in the 11's too..

    I'm a fair weather Santa pod person. In this weather nobody will want to get out of their cars.

    For those that do go, get some pics.

    I might head along to this one to see how the lowest powered IHI in the country with the worlds worst tyres fairs.

    giant balls!!!

    wont be able to make this now not because of the above but because today i noticed one of my front tyres has got a rather large bulge in it, suspect hitting a pothole is the cause

    maybe next time

    Ok guys, What rpm shall I take off? is it harsh on the clutch? what RPM shall I shift gears? my peak boost is 3-4K and would I reach 5th gear by the finish? any help would be kind.

    The best way is to probably just practice your launches on the road at junctions n traffic lights, change gear at about 5500 I think (correct me if im wrong), I don't think you'll get to 5th by the finish, probably halfway through 4th.

    I unfortunately can't make it now as I have football in the morning and won't be able to get to the pod until about 4ish so won't be much point. Maybe next time.
    Have fun to whoever goes and don't break anything.

    Had a lovely time at Santa pod today, I had a total run of 11 times today. It was one of the best experiences I had. I have some video I shall put them up on YouTube later, for all to check it out. I must say there were lots of TT cars around, two of which destroyed me at the 1/4 mile. Overall well worth it, if you go once a year. The track was so slippery that I used to get all four wheels spinning, a few times heard tyres squeaks at even 3rd gears.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekaGO0Hlj2U please check the comments as this has almost twice the power of mine and much lighter car.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVgxRDiPHxk again have a look at the video info, the A3 managed a 14.1 at the end of later runs as he was warming up his tyres more.
