since I built my car I had only one intention and that was to drag race it, well I was very impressed with the times I got,

The car was running low boost and on the standard 175 tyres that came with the car when I bought it,
So my time was 1/8 mile 13.4400 @ 109.44 mph reaction time was 0.8100

I think once I get some different rims n tyres I can hit mid 12's on the current power

I had 13 runs down the strip and came 1st in the 1.8-2.0 turbo group which I was proper happy with, only lost one race to a 600 bhp mr2 turbo with nitrous, which ran 11's, but overall it was a bloody good day of racing,
racesd against after vxr's an Astra gtc, a golf vr6 a mk4 Astra gsi turbo a ek4 civic with a supercharger, an Audi s3 and lastly an Honda integra with a Nissan skyline rb25det engine swap,

Loved the day racing and met some nice racers too

Good time for the 1st time there.
What did the rest of the run look like? 60ft etc?

Looks pretty good. If I were you I would remove the launch control though, or take a laptop with you so you can adjust it there to suit different conditions.:nice:
How do they measure the 0-60mph time?

Iirc hes on a chipped p28 so he wont be able to do that. Well unless he has the equipment to burn his own chips i guess.
Decent time considering the tyres!

Yeah I'm on a socketed p28 and yes was well impressed with the times considering the car was on original tyres too
