NEW S.A VL Auto Record 9.000@149.80MPH JETPWR
Yesterday at a private test day at Adelaide International Adelaide's Auto record was broken. Its been a long time coming,

Corran ran a PB of 9.000@149.80 MPH with a boost cut hence the mph.

Well done mate. He now holds Auto and Manual record for SA. A great achievement from the :ninja:

Mph says 149.8 not 148

Well done of the time
Car launches very nice!

awesome mate well done just a little harder off the line maybe and you will be there.

XCHASE 18-09-12 19:15

I think he's hard pressed to get off the line harder lol. The car breaks into total traction loss and he power skidded the whole track on one pass. Ill see if i have the footage somewhere.
Have to remember its not mini tubbed and still runs a borg warner diff.

well done sooooo close

Yea tyres are pretty old now, last meet it did 1.40 60ft.
Pity it hit the boost cut for a split second in that run, Hense the 149mph.
Run after that broke traction,went 9.5@155mph

Couldnt get it to hook up after that as the track prep deterates.

I was pretty shocked to see 9.000 couldnt have got that much better. Lol
