    So it has been a little while since an update on this wee beast

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    Well its been running, exceptionally well.
    Datalogging has proven difficult. its proving a little difficult to find quiet places left in Auckland you can really bury your foot.
    Few nigglys holding the car back but I smashed thru most the check list last night!*
    Its a pretty fun car to drive in the Dry.

    in the wet it is nightmarish with the Race / Drag Tune flashed on.

    The "Low" Map is far more suitable for the daily drive around the place!

    Heat Sheilding & Latermodel Topmounts and Top hats that look better and aren't so "Gappy" haha

    She is now Legitimately Road Legal (Certified) and has made an appearance at a few local drag meets

    Its invoked a few different emotions from various people, but mostly has been received positively by most people..

    I was told a range of things like my car had ****ed piston rings, and/or that something was wrong with it.

    at Night Speed Drag wars, I only managed two runs before the weather packed in and my top radiator hose blew (my fault for re using old VW hoses)

    Installed some LED Strips just for the LOLs



    Video from the Nightwars

    first Run was a 14.3 @ 108mph

    Second run was 13.7 @ 106.8mph

    Last weekend we had the Oldschool car club Drag day on saturday which had all sorts of cool old **** featured.

    However

    It has become apparent unless I get some more Traction and Sort my tune out I ain't going to get down that Quarter any Faster than 13.7

    So I am now looking for a slightly wider Pair of 15 inch front wheels to put on for Drag days (maybe track days too)

    And have a little more smoothing out to do on my "Race tune" as Launch Control was not allowing any boost to build so car had no power untill late in Second Gear / Third.

    and the Tune without launch control left me wheel spinning the whole way thru third with Tyres deflated to 20psi warm

    To Contrast

    13.756 @ 108mph with Crappy Launch Control Tune and tyres at 28psi cold

    vs

    13.743 @ 107mph with No LC on the Tune and Wheel spinning thru third with tyres at 20psi Warm

    ^^ Annoying huh!

    The fact Its running 195/50 R15 Road tyres probably doesn't help.

    the 60ft Time leaves a lot to be desired for too. never managing to get it any quicker than 2.45...

    Other than that fricken love dailying the Car. I tend to down tune it to the less aggressive map other wise she becomes a hand full in the wet

    Made it in to 13.5 on a different track (worse track / horribly narrow) 650m above sea level lake taupo motorsport park running semis on the front need to adjust the suspension some more

    Also go a little snippet on local TV a couple weekends back.. althou it was pretty cringe worthy. Lol
