    Your sig says 383bhp on VAG.com

    Do VAG.com figures still stand for modified / mapped cars? I had heard on another forum that the conversion rate is quite loose, and for modified cars it's even harder to try and approximate. I'm not discounting your figures at all, just marvelling with some envy at how high your figures are against anyone elses. The 1/4 mile vids speak for themselves, you are a very able driver and that is a quick car.

    hmmm

    i've been to a few track events and the results were a little dissapointing imo.

    my terminal speed was 170km/h on my best run of 13.6, just really struggling to ge the car off the line.

    On the road it spins a little and pulls hard , on the track is just chirps and bogs down.

    i worked out a 12.9 @ 171 / 172 should be doable with a good launch.

    whats youre teqnique for launching?
