Somehow i managed to qualify first and take full points after round 1 at Easter was finally rained off.
I also never wasted any nitrous which was a bonus.

So this weekend its round 2 on Sunday and round 3 Monday.

I would rather have some fun pushing for low 11's on gas that tiptoeing the car through puddles :rolleyes:

Wish me luck and come say hi if you come along to SUNNY York raceway this weekend :)

I have never been so happy to come 3rd place twice.
I met the awesome 1580bhp Twister in the semi final on both days.

The weather was very good considering the forecasts. On Sunday after a shakedown run i settled in to try the nitrous and ran 11.9.
Then got my head together and ran a new PB of 11.58 @ 119, later on another PB of 11.42 @ 121 :cheers:

It just got better today, I was managing to heal and toe the brakes for a much better burnout with a nice cloud of white smoke. I ran 11.30 @ 125 with a 1.81 to 60 foot. In the semi final i hit the nitrous on the pushbutton in first gear and ran 1.79 to 60 foot, 7.3 @ 99 to the 1/8th and 11.24 @ 126 over the 1/4.

This was with a 100 shot at WOT and a 75 shot on the pushbutton.

I know i can improve my launch with earlier controlled nitrous so I have Tonys (Jensen Interceptor) max controller to wire in and play with for future events. I will also be doing away with the WOT microswitch and using the MS to trigger stage 1 in an RPM window.

Its been a very good weekend :yes:

Well done mate!!

Have you not fitted a line lock yet :beatstick:

If you get that 1/8th up to 103 mph you are gonna smash the 10's easy :bow:

No line lock yet Pel, been too busy fixing the clutch etc.
I did fit some CL brake pads which are much better than the yellowstuffs i had in there.

As for 1/8th terminal speeds, i think i am there for a 10. The LS Cerbera ran 10.7 with only 98 at the 1/8th but did set a blistering 1.622 to 60 foot. His 1/4 terminal was 133.9 due to over 600bhp.

I am improving at launch and know i can gain at least another tenth to 60 foot. I reckon that will do it.
Until I am hitting 1.6's then i will leave the nitrous jets alone. I think my 4.6 at 10.2:1 CR is happy to take the 100 + 75 at the moment and i dont want to push it further if i dont have to. Its progressive control and fine tuning i need now. Cant wait to get back

My STOCK 3.5 Rover handled 2 stages FIXED at 150 HP each without any problems, so yours 'should' be able to handle even more than that, especially when progressive.
