Better at the track than on the motorway in rush hour traffic, when you race your car you learn a ****load about it and how it works.
Dont leave it to long before you get back to the track, try one of the summer series meetings when the track is prepped

My PB was 14.539 @ 158.81 Kmh
All motor, base tune, street tyres.

Interesting event, a whole mash up of RT's, ET's, 60 foot times throughout my seven passes. Ridiculous good fun though!

---------- Post added 04-12-10 at 19:14 ----------

And just for fun I've managed to find slips from my car at nightspeed 29/11/2002.

17.350 @ 127 Kmh
Stock RB30E, non-lsd...

Funny thing is, last night I was running the exact same tyres as back in 2002 (the car doesn't do mega KM). Probably time for some fresh rubber me thinks.

Decided to take my car on Friday to Meremere to have a bit of fun and see what it could do not knowing a few other from CT would be there having a run aswell.

Traction was the biggest problem of the night for me with some really old 205 semi slicks not helping the cause. Started with a couple of mid to high 13's and managed to drop it as the night went on. The final run of the night resulted in a 12.95 @ 184kph (114mph) which I was pretty happy with considering the lack of traction and a pretty standard engine (RB26) & manual box.

Big thanks to Kelvin for the use of the jack etc to change tyres even though it took me an hour (their goes my ambition of being a V8 supercar pitcrew member ) Sorry to hear about your car if you had known earlier I could have helped as I had a couple of spare sets of plugs.

Hopefully the next time I give it a go I will get some fresh rubber and a few other tweaks to improve on the time.

sweet matt, thats an awesome time, was quite entertaining watching you skate down the track trying to get traction.12.95 is a very good time.
You have got the best time so far out of the Hybrid VLs.
more intertaining was watching you change the wheels over, dont expect a call from the V8 boys anytime soon...lol
Thanks for use of your tools aswell mate.Hopefully see you again soon.

hey is there any way of getting dates aswell on these times?
just looking at them, and Kris has been up there and olny just starting to get knocked down the list and Brent had set that time many moons ago.
Good to see some quicker times coming through though.
