Well done Gray.

The secret is the diffs  
That's a good .5 sec faster than last year with less power too  
You should notice how easier it is to get a fast time as well.

Now work on getting your engine power up espically HP & then you will run sub 4 sec easy.

Wish I could have been there but something last minute came up not car related so outa my control.

Seeing as the rest are shy, how about 7 to 7.5, with an auto you get no delay on change. Ray

Well done again it's a good result  

But fit a 4.27 Scorp 16v diff & it will go quicker trust me

it did spin up but after one rev gripped and shot off down the track,i believe a lowwer ratio would do it, (ask the people who drove up with me, they saw the car out of shape often on the trip)

i am pleased at that now, i do have issues with the dif wich doesnt limmit the slip much,,,doh!
all in all its now time to fit the blower to this car i think
