I raced my AU for the first time today and went 11.81 at 120 on Mickey thompson street radials before rain set in at the track!

My 60' was 1.76! It feels awesome to launch like that with traction!

Im a bit excited! Woot!

Thanks guys! I was pretty happy with the 11.81. I was expecting to not go any better than a 12. It feels awesome launching on boost and having traction!

Yep thats my car. It was owned by someone else though in the photos in the mag.
Its had a few changes and has a bit more power now. Somethings were done poorly but we are slowly sorting them out.

I need a bigger intercooler and piping, I have my eyes on a Nizpro manifold too but we will wait and see how we go.

It is tuned very nicely thanks to CVE of course.

Its an auto and it was fine, the diff seemed okay too. The car only has 54000 K's on it since new, the auto was rebuilt 20,000kms ago and is made to handle some decent grunt. The diff is standard issue XR6 LSD AFAIK.
