Yeah, you would be expecting about mid 15s stock.

I think the XR6s were quicker up until either series 2 EL XR8s, or somewhere in the AUs. Not sure which it is though.

Mine pulls a 13.5, but it also has a few bolt ons.

I'm shocking at launching.

Was that a "best"? Like, did you have a couple of go's?

I reckon you should have another crack mate, cause no offence, but 15.8 from an ELII is shize :)

Yeah that was best. I had a one other 15.8, 3 x 15.9s and one 16.1

As I said I am shocking at launching and its all in the launch because anyone can drive fast in a straight line but I cant get the launch right.

That was before the blower I assume.

Have you taken it down since? Curious to see how badly I am doing comparitavely.

Timmeh: I think he was asking if you have only been down the once for some practice runs? You ain't gonna get the best time without any practice. Should come down next week with the rest of us. :D

Don't worry Kilma, i'd be more disappointed than you would be.
I'm only getting 14.2's which is absolutely F%^&*d.
If i keep the thing, i'll get it up to 8 PSI, where it should be, and see what it does then.

best time I have recorded on the Gtech while "tuning" was a 14.4 at 98mph
but 0-100 times were awsome with 5.91 thru to 6.23 and very consistant too,
but the motor is now in a very sorry state, only running on 6 cylinders as of wed morning
:cry: :cry: :x
