8.05 on a radial, JW Automotive

Can't believe there is nothing here about such a feat.

The JW Automotive VL went 8.05 on a radial, SOHC. Mind boggling achievement in itself and it won't be long till we see a 7 second radial tyred VL.

Credit to all the guys involved

I would like to see a big precision turbo on this e.g a new 6870 cea or the 8285 or similar

Plenty supras in the states running 180mph plus in 3500 pound cars with IRS with these turbos

Most impressive vl in oz atm
