Tip: Remove spare wheel, 15-20l RON 98 fuel in the fuel tank, remove any dead weight from car and lower the psi on your back tyres.. Should get somewhere between 16.7-15.3secs. This is as long as your engine and gearbox are smick.

Do your engine a favour and leave the air filter in there. The filter is a restriction of only 1 inch H2O (0.036psi). It's not worth the dust you'll let in. In fact you'll see more gain by taking a really big s**t (for weight reduction) just before you race.

...I know...weather forecast didn't look good and if you run 18s, I don't think anyone would even bother when it's dry.

Is that for the AFF drag day? Are you going on the Friday night or the Saturday? I'm heading there on the Friday night, have no idea what my car will run, hoping it will be in the 15's, its my first time out so I am definately going to be the limiting factor :(
