    12.6 is seriously fast, and so is 13 assuming around 13.0!

    Has anyone took a 2.0Tdi up the strip ever? lol

    I would say if i ran a 12.7 at crail i will be faster at santa pod, the surface at crail is a disgrace compared to santa pod. Everyone i know who has ran Crail and Santa Pod has been faster at Santa Pod. If you have ever ran Crail you would know what i was talking about lol

    found a video on yotube, this is my mate driving with me passenger in this video:

    My run is at around 42sec mark



    and the times for that run:

    yep , they are the ones pal , you can drill holes in the rubber to line up with the iner arch screws for 3 fixings then only have to drill 1 hole in the inner wing near the top and use a small self tapping screw , paint it after to stop rust :icon_thumright:

    Well it certainly looks quick,i think that santa pod is faster for 2 wheel drive cars as the tarmac is supposed to be very sticky,
    But not quite as good for ours with the 4 wheel drive systems. With our sort of cars you don't want it to grip to hard at launch as easy to break
    something lol.
    I am looking forward to gti international as you also get the 0-60 times,are you going to that,be good to have a play,car looks awesome btw :icon_thumright:

    Cheers Mate, I was considering going but dont know if i will have enough holidays at work, got alot happening this year lol one of the boys we went there with was in an S3 8p with 320bhp, lightweight wheels, minimum fuel and no rear seats etc.. and i think his best was 13.6ish
    My car has an uprated sachs clutch so im thinking this is making the difference when it comes to getting the power to the wheels when setting off.

    What's that one left at (0:12 of 1:12)? Zakspeed Capri - Slithered down like a rattle snake!!

    Must say - I was midly impressed at how quick yours went down Dave. Did I see you jump the lights..(0:44 of 1:12)? ;) Or was the Astra that much slower?

    PESKY Corsa!!!! (0:56 of 1:12) I thought we'd since the last of that!! lol

    Nice one Paul! I'll check out some previous threads\pics and come back with questions as i'm thinking of getting some new wheels on mine (or possibly powder coating the standard 18s)

    Cheers mate. KKP
