    How can people say K04 figures are capped and that it isn't new territory, Niki's just broken the record for a road going customers K04 hybrid. In my eyes that's new grounds, all will be revealed when Prawn posts later I am sure. But there is one area where Prawns car is stand out from the setup on Welly's which will hopefully keep the hardware safe at this level.

    There couldn't be a more abused test bed for it that Prawns car. If it puts up with Prawns abuse with the power it's got then it's good enough for anybody. I was in so so so so so happy when he phoned me earlier, I can't wait to go home next week for a play.

    I so excited! :)

    He just sent me a video....HOLY ****.

    Absolutely shattered now, so will do a full write up later or tomorrow, but thanks to Niki and the boys for an absolutely epic day :)

    Final result was 353bhp and 345lbft:

    Epic results mate, so its that the figure that your running everyday or has nik toned it down to a safer level?

    That actually IS the safe level Dani! It would take 27 degrees+ of advance, but Niki left it at 25.5, WMI is acting more as a safety thing rather than an absolute essential to making the power.

    Peak boost is just 21psi

    Christ mate thats epic, especially the fact that it isnt meth dependant. Did nick rag it past that point to see what the max possible figure would be?

    I don't think I'll ever drive the ring again either. It's such a huge risk, and one that Prawn won't want again I'm sure.

    It's just lost the appeal to me Rich, you have one decent trip when it all comes together, weather, mates, traffic, closures, then you spend the next 3 years hoping every trip will be like that one good one, and they never are, something ALWAYS happens, and you always do HALF the number of laps you planned to....

    I think Jason summed it up perfectly:

    Odd how we think nothing of travelling for 10-11 hours to get the nurburg and stay in a hotel, yet 4 hours in the UK and a premier inn for a night is far too far and too much hassle!

    UK TD's for us now I think :)

    Sounds like a hit of heroin or something. The first hit is always the best, then you keep chasing that first one.

    I'd still like to give it a go one day but I'd have to rent one of those dodgy Suzukis like Andy did (and hit 11k rpm!) otherwise shipping my car might be a bit costly :)
