Top day. ;)

Was a bit busy in the morning and early afternoon, but near the end we managed to get loads of runs in.
My best was 15.071 in a standard Cally Turbo with only FWD. Miles did 14.0something in his 1.6 16V Nova. Scott (Cally16V) did 15.5 in his standard Cally.

No doubt he'll be here when he gets back to say waht he got. :D

No turbo. No back or passenger seats though. It's supprisingly quick! He did a few 15.6's and 15.7's.

Which was JPT's? There were a couple with V Tuning on them, didn't see any runs though.

Kewl day, I magaed a best run of 16.551 in a fully loaded Cav GSI which aint too bad. Not into stripping it out, for me its seeing what it will do in "real road" trim so to speak.

Yep chuffed to say the least. Started the day hoping for a 15.8. After my first two runs of 16.3 i was a little worried to say the least.

But sorted out my launch and put in 15.5, two 15.6s(beat a certain Cally turbo on this run;) ) a 15.7 and various other 15 second times.

As said the engine is standard, decat only. Back seats and passenger seat removed though.

Best run

Reaction - 1.026
60ft - 2.486
330ft - 6.612
1/8et - 10.090
1/8mph - 71.51
1/4mile - 15.543
1/4mph - 89.72


Oh and Lee69, i remember well.lmao

I got bored of changing gears in order, so I gave 2nd -> 5th a go... :p

Strangely that major fluff during that run and it was still better than a lot of my other ones.

The friends of the guy with the Mk1 RS2000 were taking the **** out of the other cav's in the queue... And he also had 'Torque of the Devil' on the back. He left straight after I beat him. :eek:

Some big black 3 series went straight after I beat him too... lmao

I think the standard fan alloys and no jacking point covers lures people in. ;)

Exactly who needs 3rd and 4th.


Yes with the missing jacking point covers, and fan alloys you will now be known as the style icon at pod.


Oh and to all the clowns who went around my car in the queue while i was busy moving Miles' car....fook you all.lmao

"Whats the retail on one of those"



Yes the crew were out.

Oh and to anyone doubting the potency of nos. My best time came against a 1.816v MK5 Escort. Easy win i thought. They are only about 110bhp standard. Imagine my surprise as he beats me and runs a 15.2. Turns out he was running a 50shot of nos and had already run 15.1. Sure he surprised a few people today, including me.

LMFAO at the Paxo crew too, one Paxo behind me in the que thought it was a cruise not motor racing, he was proudly sporting his stick on tat bumper and playing his music loud, I betcha he pulled a handbrake turn at the other end of the strip too! :rolleyes:

Good day had by all it seems except a Rover and a bike blowing up (and anyone else that blew up their engine)

That the saxo with the two huge jap style exhausts and one of them with a flamer kit at the tip?

He jumped past my car in the queue when i was moving Miles', and then held back to race his mate leaving a space where I would have been... :rolleyes:
