    Post Wetta POD!

    Boy was it wet today. At one point I didn't think anyone was going to get down the track. Thankfully the sun broke through and I got to see some serious tyre melting!

    The diesel were out in force as usual (not mine, I didn't have my licence, as usual) and there was a little bit of an upset between the 1.9 and 3.0. The remapped and boxed 3.0 which were producing more torque and power were actually slower than the 888 remapped 1.9. There was an attempt to go down with a remap and tuning box on the 1.9 but too much wheel spin slowed it to 16 seconds.

    The 3ltrs were running both standard and boxed, don't know if anyone was running a remap though. They got down to 15.9 secs and in the wet but just didn't get off the line fast enough. The close torque and power peaks mean that they don't have much range to boot it in compared to the lighter, larger turboed 1.9.

    When I looked at the intercooler in the 3ltr it was half the size of the 1.9's, probably because the smaller turbo doesn't dump as much heat into the air. I'm sure a bigger intercooler could help extend the power band, along with some nice air box mods.

    The 3.2s were going hell for leather and getting desperate to beat the Mondeo 3.2. To the point that the drivers headlight got removed to give move cold air to the cone filter. It worked though, knocked more than .5 of a sec off the time. Actually produced a sub 15 sec run!

    I had a good look round the shinnies and saw lots of things I wanted, which could be good or bad... I'll have to superglue my licence to my butt so I've got it with me for next time.

    On the intercoolers I thought they were the same, the aircon rads I thought were smaller? Prob wrong tho.

    What time did Andrew get in the 888? Couldn't make it this weekend myself Been a bad week for me. Not enough miles on the 888 yet either.

    I was sure Big Phill got a sub 15 with the eye poked out... maybe not. I didn't see any 888s go down the track, just the 888 remapped veccy which was as said, into the 15 secs.

    loved the look of the Farmers wagon except the front, those twin driving lamps weren't my taste. The bumper shape was nice, just didn't seem right to me. Definatly liked the alloys but I'd like some 17 or 18s cos I want to drop it down 4cm.

    It was the mondeo that did a sub 15 time. Phil was about .5 seconds slower, even with the headlamp unit out
