    Hardly a fair match though?! A 1.9 turbo diesel against a 2.0 non-turbo. Also didn't really show much. Start of the video showed a standing start but you couldn't see who was where in the distance, and the rest of the video was just them ars*ing around.

    Not really sure what it was meant to show?

    yes I would want to see a much longer race, lets say 2 mile race on a high way. The funny thing is the Vectra is 100 kilos lighter, has 15 ps more, and is not faster at a standing start.
    I mean the standing start is still diesel's only fault, diesel hate standing start as they usually go 25 mph in first 45 in second 65 in third, its all gear changing -losing time.
    So at least I expected that in 1st gear the Vectra would have been able to pull away, but no....

    Am I missing something?
    THe first run was Vectra ,
    the second all skoda,
    the third pretty even, skoda slightly stronger.

    100 kilos more 15 ps less, bad gearing, 0-100kmh faster.

    So what you're saying is 2.0T Vs 1.9CDTI at Santa Pod sounds like a good idea to you?

    No...

    And the best I have done previously is 15.6, but! I have bigger tyres now so I can get some grip and I have a few more tricks up my sleeve, for example

    I have fitted an intercooler sprayer to keep the temp down (does work, I've proved it on the rollers). I'm going to test my charge cooler this week end and see if I can run it with washer pumps or if I'll need to buy a proper one for the job. And my second air filter now has a cold air feed.

    I told DT-UK I would be at Santa Pod on the 25th March and that is still my intention, so hopefully I'll have a better time to show then.

    Could this be small willy syndrome in action?
