am suprised that fastest car is 13.0.has nobody in uk gone faster than that?

i did 13.795 at york in an almost standard fiat coupe so would expect a 300bhp+ t5 to atleast do low 13's.

Hi beast (lol) that's a great time, what terminal speed and 60ft did you get? And when you say almost standard...what have you changed?

My best is an embarrassing 14.1 secs and i have done a LOT to the car. In fairness it's got more to be done including remapping before it's finished and grip is an issue. My best 60ft was a truly awful 2.4 secs, but car was really motoring on by the end with terminals of up to 105.9mph, which as you can see, would be much better suited to a 13.xxx 1/4 mile time hehe.

lol, we'll jacqs being a bit modest

Best 60ft you did was 2.49, so 2.5, yet still managed a couple of 14.1's with good terminals, and it was still wheelspinning after the 60ft mark as well, so to still be getting 106mph by the line takes a good bit of grunt, which from first hand experience of the car, it definately has lol, not bad for a first day out IMO.

Was raining intermitantly throughout the day, and when it did dry up for a bit it will have been cold and greasy, plus first runs in 2 years for you and first launches ever in the car on that engine/gearbox/diff/cutch

Easily a 13 second car with no worries as it is now, and still got stuff to come, more practice as well, so we'll see what develops

That is a shame. Did you have a GT3076R as well?
