Awesome, see you there Very Happy I'm a little concerned about the vmax though, i've heard this new venue it's held at has a shorter braking zone so i may just stick to the 1/2 mile. I can't seem to get any info though so will just have to play it on the day i guess Surprised Surprised

Grin 207.8 was it not??!!!

Ade I think you are right just take it steady and build the speed up slowly. Brunters has the increased run off through the area where the cars were parked, is that the difference?

Still looking forward to seeing the new venue and catching up with a few fimilliar faces (odd term for me having prosopagnosia frustrated )

I saw the post of the ES750 in Instagram, running on pump fuel with octanium additive. I am guessing that car running the water / meth injection?

Impressive stuff thumbsup

Not true in reality ( was marshalling there) the braking zone is the same as brunters - but there were people who took liberties at Brunters and used unofficial run off - which is not as feasible here.

If you have concerns speak to Craig...

I spoke to Craig a couple of weeks back and he confirmed what you've just said...

trouble is for the higher 200mph+ cars they needed the extra runoff at Brunters. It still concerns me but i will see how it goes on the day and most likely stick to just the 1/2 mile times instead of actual vmax...

I ended up in a field on my first run. It was really the transition in the wet from tarmac to concrete on the run off which caught a few of us out. We were clearly warned by Craig and thank the Lord I was on a gentle sighter run. Still managed 60-186mph in 18 secs with these new do88 intercoolers. I think the catless 9e 28 will do that in 16secs!

Very light nicks and grazes to my car and on 9e geo all four wheels still perfectly straight - gives me an excuse to go for a full glass out respray now she's at 87,000 miles (was going to do this at 100,000 miles any way).

Kens pricing up a full GT2 aero conversion which I've always wanted post Isysman's . Not 100% on this but if I can persuade Teile to do me a deal might go mad like Isysman.

Car was rather quick but VBOX didn't work due to off road excurison. If anyone one wants to see top speed reached 200 meters before brake board I'm sure Ken will be happy to send you the cars log. Soon as she's ready will take her back and run standing mile in future rather than full 1.3 miles at this new venue otherwise I'll just keep on ending up in the field Grin

I think she's a 200mph in standing mile car now - we shall soon find out..need aero to slow me down now!

Wow! That beats a ‘sticky latch on my glove box’ post!

Glad it wasn’t too bad. Bet that got the heart rate up a bit?

You do know logs are from the speedo which is innacurate? Be better getting a GPS reading from Vbox.

Don’t understand why your Vbox wouldn’t have recorded the data even if you did come off the track.

Did you come off 200m before the brake board!!?? Or are you saying you had to start braking before the boards?

Of course he (and 9e) know that. We were the ones when vmax started years ago that insisted only on vbox for the faster cars.

The cigarette lighter connection came out during the crash hence why the vbox then switched off.

He was at 215 dash ( max it will read) and still accelerating well before this happened.

Congrats on your speed.

Ken
