210.2mph

Hi folks, myself and Jon haven't been about for a few days as we've been to Elvington with Andy F who managed to achieve a whopping 210.2mph in his Impreza on Monday. That's without Nitrous :wink: the full story will be in Issue 9 of Scooby Magazine. 8)

As you can tell Andy has been rather busy with things, I'm sure he'll be back with Project WRX very soon 8)

Thinking about it how quick would he be WITH the nitrous on :x - Saw a article in Evo mag (sorry Dee) about one built by RCMS for an Icelandic bloke that had some 700bhp + - wonder how fast that goes :?:

Dee/ Jon - Evo's a bit boring now and not like it used to be - too many Aston Martins and supercars for me - I only read it at Gatwick airport going out to Italy when I saw the RCMS Icelandic mad machine - odd I saw Evo magazine at Bolonga airport in Italian - must have been syndicated? - very weird to read John Barker thrashing a car in Italian!!!!! :x - Keep up the good work!

For the record, the nitrous bottle was removed from the car:

1. To save weight
2. The current clutch cannot handle anymore power than what is being put through at the moment.
3. Andy didn't want people to think he was pressing the button, so if it wasn't in there that would be definite proof.
