I'm very keen to get out to some circuit days, hopefully this year some time. A couple of boys from work regularly get out and they have a ball.

Oh yeah, 15.8 @ 142km/h :oops:

Mine ?
It used to be an EF Futura 4.0l, not sure what you'd call it these days :P

Around 4.2l, It's Performance stage 4 engine plus a few of my own mods, 175rwkw, 5 speed manual, 3.45 LSD
Last ET was 14.4 on stockies.
0-100, well here's a video of my grandma driving it to church last sunday :lol:

http://home.exetel.com.au/hyena/public/Hyena_0-100.mpg

I make it 6.2 from the video but the G-tech says 6.89
Either way as you can see I did a very easy launch basically off idle so plenty more in her :)
