Crail 1/4 Mile 25 July

Recommended Posts

Well Guys,

What can i say :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

We had another fantastic day at Crail, thought the weather was going to be against us, but the sun was splitting the tree's, 22C, so i suppose it was not quite perfect, but most importantly, it was not raining 8)

Anyway, as far as i go, finally managed to get the car's boost upto 13-14psi (big thanx Chris+Bedlam :D )So when i got there i was over anxious to get started 8)

Anyway, got my first run done, but i was wheel spinning quite bad, i ran a 14.3 @ 99.6 mph. Over the next few runs, i experimented with the take-off rpm and was still wheel spinning badly and was getting steady 14.3's :evil:

I was really gunning for Barracuda's time of 14.2odd's and i played around with the tyre pressures a bit. . . . .still wheel spinning badly, Bedlam and Chris were wheel spinning also. As the day went on i finally managed to achieve 14.268, just a baw hair of Barracuda's time, a few thou of a second! I was happy at that and i let the car cool down for a while.

Next on was Michelle's dad, first time doing the 1/4mile. After a few runs with Chris, Dougie finally got the hang of this, and would you believe it :!: Listen carefully Mike, the big C*nt got a 14.17, aye 14.17 B'dy h*ll i could'ny believe what i saw, i was videoing him at the time and saw his time through the view finder, so when he came off i got him to get his times, yip 14.17 was correct. I was happy for him, so i went out for a bash!

I was along side Bedlam and Chris, and what stick i took from em' I was called all sorts cause Dougie got such a good time, and i had'nt, enough was enough :evil: Could'nt let those so and so's have the upper hand, so i went out and thrashed down the 1/4 mile, and gues what :?: Mike are you still with us :?: 14.132 i got, LOL :D :D :D :D :D

Yip that was a fantastic time for bog standard Soarer TT running 13-14 psi

After that run i was getting steady 14.1's so i'm a happy man, that deserves a wee Buckfast, don't you think. . . . . Cheers 8)

LOL,

yip up hear in Bonnie Scotland :winky: It's just outside St Andrews, we've got guys from Cornwall and Kent who come all the way up for the thrash.

Have a look here www.andytt.co.uk as to what to expect, these are some of my vids, all sorts attend, even Porshe Boxsters that go in reverse at the start line, Lambo's that blow gearbox's etc, but don't be surprised if a MKII Escort does 11 secs :huh:

Well worth the effort guys, more laid back than Santa-Pod, Last meet i did over 30 runs :driving:
