Good to see you and Jay there Pel.
Only a marginal PB for me to 60 foot but running mid consistant 11's all day was good enough.
Ive got to get that controller fitted and get some gas in sooner.

Was a great race with Jay...

It was a real blast mate! What a great day out eh?

No rush, just chilled out racing all day long with hardly any waiting :)

Great to see you again and also meet Barry + The young lad who say's auto transmissions are gay! ??
I hope Barry's loose crank pulley hasnt done too much damage.

Lack of sign on's saw the track being ripped up by you TVR guys all day long eh :)

Mick with the Mini Clubman PB'd with backed up 12.9's :)

He went home very happy. And he hasnt even fitted the nitrous yet.
He's going to crap his pants when i get the system working :shock:

Jason PB'd with the 11.6 (up from 11.9) but then damaged the engine on run 2 !! . Damn those crap pistons.... But hey! The engine only cost 100 notes all in so a mid 11 is very very good for his first RWYB track slag project.

My mates Nige and Nick ran good consistent times all day in the BIG truck and the Blue pro street Merc. They do sportsman racing so consistent is more important than quicker and quicker for what they do.. Hmm!!
I prefer the quicker and quicker until it breaks option myself :rofl:

I'm already working on Nick to get some nitrous on the Merc for RWYB days so he can go balls out ;)

Did you see the gold skyline smoking the place out?? He was burning so much oil that he was spitting oil out of the exhaust in the burnout pad. He got pulled later in the day by the marshalls.

Heres the slo mo of Jay losing some pots :)

You can see when the nitrous hits on stage one. The car leaves the line for about 1/2 a wheel turn which is where the throttle switch closes and you see the car dig in. Then he hits 2nd gear where he activates stage 2. All looks ok until you see the big flash from the side pipe as the 50p pistons let go :rofl: :beatstick: :rofl:

Also see the effect of the rear arm bush collapsing just after the launch. Some quick steering correction was required :)
