    Default How fast will my GSI be at Thunder road?

    I have just been reading the rules for next Saturday's 'roll on mile'!
    • Two lanes
    • field is limited to 60 cars.
    • 5 run average to count in the competition!
    • looks like top speed is the clincher not the time.

    How slow! at the end of the mile? what do you think?

    Passenger runs available....queue here for Mr Spoons.

    So
    It looks like lots of people will be removing their rear seats so i will finish ahead of all those in the competition.......otherwise I will have to lodge a protest!!
    Reliability.........Some of these big power cars will have only run at full power for a few seconds on the RR................... in the five runs this could be 1.5 minutes at WOT.... think how the clutches give out in the few seconds on the RR's

    Next how does a Vectra GSI stack up against a Corsa VXR in std trim? are they fair competition for top speed even though they are in class A?

    So over all the 5 runs and looking at the total field of 60 cars I am reasonably confident of not being last in the final count.

    The GSI runs in class D

    Thought all trim had to be left in Paul??

    Whatever your time reckon it will be a great day mate....cant wait to see all cars in action especially the monaro 600+....although as you say some may only have run full tilt for secs at RR so will be interesting over the full mile.

    It's going to be a really good day

    I think your GSi should be put in class c mate, top speed in the GSi will be good also

    After we all have are 5 runs in the classes we are in, we get to run against whoever we want

    I want to see how I fair against a stage 3 Astra VXR :-)

    Stage 3 Astra's seem to be pushing 330bhp and maybe 190kg lighter than the vec!..........

    Stage 3 Astra VXR's are around 300 bhp but less torque

    And yes they are lighter but we do have a whole mile, should be fun

    Just had a look no 300 bhp Astra's running, had a few conversions with people that said they were going but havent booked :-(

    Oh well I'll try with the 330 bhp one

    The classes generally divide the Corsa's, Astra's, Vectras, and the V8's.
    A - Up to 1600cc
    B - 1600cc to 2000cc
    C - 2000cc to 2800cc
    D - Over 2800cc

    He he he.... this is going to be a good day.... just hope it doesnt rain.

    I'll be running without NOS for the 5 competitive runs.

    Then I'll be running with NOS for a couple of comparison runs.

    Dougie (VXR Brand Manager) has bagged the first passenger run with NOS. After that it just depends if I have enough NOS left in the bottle, or fuel.

    I personally think that the Vectra VXR's will put up a good show on the day and it'll take some modified and pretty powerful cars to beat us
