    I'll get onto it this afternoon .... in the interest of science of course !!

    I dont really want to do 0-60 times as it destroys the clutch and tyres...

    So, whats the plan then ?? - what times do we want ??

    10 - 70 mph

    30 - 70 mph

    EDIT: I cant put any more times up cos it would be illegal ??!!

    30-70 seems to be one that's been mentioned a couple of times, so one to start for?

    Yep, I think we should stick to <=70 times for posting on the forum.

    lol.... for posting on the forum....

    I've got a private raceway near me (we call it the Birmurgstraight)... you pay £4 at the booth... and the time starts when the light turns green. Its a bit like Santa Pod and the Grand National combined... 10 lanes merging into 3.... so you'd better be quick !! cos no prizes for 4th place



    Government installed it near me when I complained about the lack of race facilities.... looks quite pretty as well....



    You have to watch out though as sometimes the general public accidentally stray onto it thinking its a toll road - Numpties !!

    ...and the cool thing is the fastest speed recorded gets a Police escort to the nearest exit

    New times.

    15 degrees temperature...

    30-70 mph through gears (2nd and 3rd gear)

    5.76, 5.58, 5.76, 5.62 = average 5.68

    If you look at my 30-50 time added to my 50-70 (in 3rd gear) time = 6.55

    So, it just shows how using a 'static' mph start can slow you down. So accelerating through 30-70 mph through the gears is much faster by 1 second (including a gear change)... which if I remember correctly was the same time difference before... just shows turbo lag can kill your time... and if someone boots their car first... they have got a 1 second head start before you have time to react !! = this is what annoys VXR's.... get that 1 second head start advantage and they are no faster !!

    Chart Updated......
