15.8 before.. Was it all stock? Sounds a bit weird(slow), when the lane was stock + exhaust I did a 15.2 I think?

The stock figures are 15.6 IIRC. Different cars, different drivers, different times...

It had under drives but the power was lost cause the throttle body was too big (75mm). So I reckon it was near stock levels.
Its a manual.

There was a stock auto there when I did it and he was getting 15.7 so I was a bit p****d off cause his didn't have the explorer manifold it was the 170kw XR8.

As I said I'm a pretty crap driver when it comes to take off cause its in my genetics to not hurt the clutch. I just can't do it :lol:

If I go down, I'll try and egg you on a bit! Haha... As soon as you've had a couple of runs, you'll be doing whatever it takes to get that time down. Adrenalin takes over!

Nah not today unfortuantely. I only got Tuesday and Wednesday to do it now then I'm back at work. I'm only going for a quote cause I can't afford it until March.

If the kids can just all go sleep at the same time and give me 1 hour. :roll:

No drags for me. Brother has both helmets. I thought he might of left one in my garage where he stores his bike but I can only find his leathers.

F**k it. I give up trying to do anything now.

I'll get his spare helmet or I just might by my own. Stig style so I don't have to ask for his. I'm on early shift for 6 weeks so maybe sometime in the next 6 weeks I can go.
Just have to ask permission from the wife, kids, god etc.
