cool, i hope to have my car in a good working order for then to try out a few things.

also thinking of trying out a spare gearbox with a welded input shaft and diff, to see what difference it makes on the 1/4
only thing is i wanna drive the car up there and home, as thats a good part for the day, if in a convoy
but i dont want to fit that box 1st and drive there with it on (chances are i will break it there anyway, 400+ bhp and l/c will do that, might even try getting some slicks to) , so unless some1 local is going in a van full of tools and lets me chuck some stuff in, either i got to tow it, or leave that idea out. :confused:

Hope to make this yet again with the civic. Its a brilliant day to get easy unlimited access to the track, ideal for testing. Just hope it doesnt break the week before on our 2nd hks round... :)

:agree: done some impressive times... Going for the 9s is he this year then, seen a few posts over on ESC, doesnt seem like he wants to enter that side of things..? I can see we going to end up with a small selection of fast non renaults :laugh:....

10-01-2010, 19:02
God I feel small when you start talking about gettin into the 9's, I'm hoping to get into the low 13's possibly high 12's

As some of you prob know by now Santa Pod now let passengers ride down the strip for the extra 10 fee, passenger must sign on like a driver etc but for the 10 get as many rides as they like all day in whatever car... Road legal cars only tho.. so that rules hot rides in scoffs 5 out the window as i very much dout he would put treads on :)... But will the same Passenger ride option be at our PRIVATE RTOC day... :confused:

I didn't realise they were doing that now, when they say only road legal cars does that not include us boys who use slicks then?

Rob@Backyardracing
24-01-2010, 21:49
Nope dont think so... which is a shame... road tyres only so not as thrilling...:) mind you if speck comes along think hes ran a 10.7 on treads.... :agree:

Spooky
24-01-2010, 21:49
Ill be bringing a spare seat (if needed) and some good tyres then :D

Ah well, yeah could always do a few runs with road tyres to show peeps how they go, will be nowhere near as quick though.

Dame thats quick for road treads, whats that in?

Scoff
24-01-2010, 21:54
mark, specky's road tyres are M/T ET streets, so a cut slick, the same as santi gianni. They're passable in TOTB, not actually UK road legal though, so debatable if pod staff will allow passanger runs with them or not.

Rob@Backyardracing
24-01-2010, 21:56
Yeah 10.74 @ 136 on treads.... and ran a 10.50 @ 137mph (10.50@ 137mph) on slicks...

Its the blue Vaux Tigra, im sure you have seen it...

Rob@Backyardracing
24-01-2010, 21:57
Thats very true Scoff i was thinking same... :(

Ah i see, yeah i know thet tyres now. I remember looking at James Willdays RX7 the year he competed in TOTB, he was running a set. They are pretty much slicks with some grooves cut in them. Thats the thing might be worth them defining what road legal means, if its cars with tax and ticket or wheels they use.

Ah yeah i know the Tigra now Rob, that will be interesting to see if he's popping along

I bet that after 2 or 3 runs you wont want to be hauling an extra 90+kg of weight up the strip in the form of a passenger!! :D

25-01-2010, 17:26

Are there any stalls?

I have shed loads of 5GT stuff that I need to shift (some of you have seen it)

Can I bring van load and set up a stall?
Just need to get rid...

clee
28-01-2010, 11:48
You can put a stall up :agree:

Spooky
28-01-2010, 12:02
It won't be on the Pod website as it's a private day :)

I think it was shown on there last year as the RTOC Day or something :)

Last year pod did agree to put us on the website & pod calander's....wernt sure if it was an extra cost tho...

But this year it hasn't happened, i very much doubt it will effect the attendance, nor will make any difference to a great day for the club and its member's.

Hi 5
28-01-2010, 21:49
santi did 11.1 on full drag slicks not on et streets :) and i took a car for mot last week with mt et streets and it pass ok so are they road legal or not ?

Rob@Backyardracing
28-01-2010, 22:31
You sure Glen? either way they guy ran not exactly a ground breaking 60ft, 1.97, if it was a 1.7 (like you should get with a decent drag tyre) he would have seen a 10second pass fact.. also if he was on a proper drag tyre and trying to push who goes fitting drag tyres to 15inch rims :sad2: (which he had on)... with a 13" combo it would shift in to 10s... Good Walls rule 60s :)

Ps looking forward to see your new build this year :agree:

Its always running, its just never driven on the road :cry:. Not looking forward to buying a replacement alternator, let alone replacing it on my car :( shouldn't have cut back on things like that. When thats done ill more than likely choose to change more things on there again though

Hi pal I run on 15 and do 1.7 60 ft so my be I need to on 13 then

:) I wasnt saying that 15s with drags cant run 1.7s..

I ment it more that if i was building a drag car IMO id rather run a light 13" rim and have the bigger wall... Im sure a few others would agree..
