Default 12.5 @ 113.5 mph

Another visit to the strip, this time at ~15psi with water / meth.

Still can't get it off the line. I need per gear boost control!! Nevertheless, I had a good time.

Raced an R35 GTR, but fluffed 3rd. Beat a 460bhp EP3 Civic on drag tyres, and also owned a TVR Cerbera which felt good.

Nice numbers. They would be even more nice with pictures or video to accompany them... this is the media section after all.

Vettes don't really exist over here. The first run I did I went 13.0 at 116mph, which seemed pretty impressive.

There are a few videos on youtube. I'll post links to them in a couple of hours when I'm home.

In the meantime, I found these:

There are no fixed speed cameras in the county I live in but you sometimes see them in high vis vans sitting on the dual carriageways.

A couple of videos I found on YouTube.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxnzB9J9gdw - vs 500hp Almera (he fluffed the start)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gX7owjJn16g - inside the Amera on the same run (he ran a flat 12 later in the day)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XH-WIuvqYxc - me missing 3rd and losing to the GTR (ignore the shitty music)

Very nice. You still running the R-comps? Curious how if you can get those at the right temp to hook up properly off the line

Still on Federal 595 RS-R tyres, but I think the 195's are just too narrow. Ideally I'd stop being tight and buy an AVC-R and set up per gear boost control. I don't know how Apexonyou managed to hit the 11's. I think we must have had about the same power, but he either has godlike driving skills, better tyres / alignment settings or has some special technique to get these off the line.
