Let me know when you're ready for a shot at the title :P :lol:

Our times should be very close with our cars and engines being nearly the same, but you should be quicker given I'm running a stock ECU and you've got the unichip and a slightly bigger cam

That's a very good 60 foot time there considering the time elapsed, being a ghia I assume it's an auto? How are you launching it?

2.3 for the 60's about right for an AUI Ghia remeber the IRS is grippier in the launch. The ET and TS line up pretty well with what I am running so they look fine to me. Not too sure about the weight though seems too light. I would bet it would weigh closer to the 1650kg mine does on WSID weighbridge lane 1 scrutineering bay

thats not a bad time at all, next time dump most of the fuel, you'd be surprised what the difference it can make.
