    i do we we all over his valver lol! ......... power to weight of my car is about the same as a mk2 Golf 16v (140bhp per ton), but because mine's lighter i'll get away from the lights quicker

    mk2 Golf 16v would be catching 2/3rd's distance.......but i'll be too far ahead and i'll pass the at the 1/4 mile mark first

    only way a valver should win is if i'm asleep when the light goes to green........that happen a lot though

    .....

    forgot to say i beat a Ibiza Cupra Sport (2.0 8v) down the strip today too Laughing

    it is when they put the sticky glue stuff down on the first part of the track

    they did'nt bother on Saturday due to the rain Sad

    got the results of the Practical Performance Car Magazine 999 Challenge

    21st (out of 32)

    doesn't sound that impressive, but i beat the Uno Turbo (25th) & 106 XSi (28th)................i even beat the Starlet with the V8 engine (22nd)

    also according to the results my best 0-60 was 7.929...........found a couple more timing slips in my glovebox, one with a 8.347sec 0-60

    back on topic lol!

    me & our Matt finally got a trackday done today (Elvington)

    due to the current noise reg's (98db) i've had to fit a quieter exhaust system......got a G40 backbox off eBay & Matt made me a centre section out of parts from 3 different exhausts




    good bits of the day were......

    newbies is Scooby, RX7 & Integra Type R trying to keep us behind them...... & failing Very Happy

    rules are "let the faster car's past".........i think they did'nt listen properly at the drivers meeting Rolling Eyes

    RX7 spun while trying to keep ahead of our Matt

    bad bits.......

    fuel starvation - fuel sloshes to one side of the tank and the engine starts coughing.........solved this by running with more fuel in the tank (used 27 litres today)

    used a bit of oil - had to top it up twice.........ring or bores are getting worn (i'll run it til it goes bang)

    worst bit.......

    blown a hole in my 4 branch exhaust manifold, car sound like a truck..........it will have to come off and be welded

    ..............

    tyres did well Surprised



    ......

    finally got round to scanning part one of my car's appearance in Practical Performance Car magazine (i'll scan the 2nd part when i find it)

    Tax ran out yesterday, MOT due in a week....... so I was thinking of taking off the road til I could afford to fix this



    Anywho..... done a deal with our Matt, he's repairing it.... & I'm giving him some mk1 Golf bits for doing it

    My selling spree on eBay & the bit of overtime I got at work will pay for the tax & test

    &...... I've got some 13 inch BBS RA's with nearly new 175/60x13's at a bargain price...... even though I should not be buying stuff thats not really needed at th moment
