Thing is mate you cant have everything daz`s vxr is slow off the deck due to traction issues (think its running 260-270 ish now)but once rolling fcuk me it takes some catching-2 driveshafts, no prop or centre/rear diff it all ads up mate.
When i had a go against scott there were about 3 car lengths in it to 100 most of that gap created from 80 upwards up untill then were almost thinking i could pass him-goes to show bugeyes and classics are worlds apart regarding weight, 320 vs i guess 240bhp in mine.

There is always something faster Tidgy... This is why to me, why bother chasing something if you know how fast things go? Besides, if he floored it with a top speed of a 186mph, I dont think you'll be catching it all that quick

Besides, the dirt I saw on yours yesterday, no wonder you couldnt catch him!!

not sure what mine will do now tbh, they have sugested that it may max out the gearbox with a long enough run. thing i've learnt is that the amount of power i now have is that there aint much out there that can down right blow me away , pull on me, catch me yeah, but not blow me away

o also had a play with a lambo merchlargo (sp) today and same result, yeah he was faster, but not by much. tehe

should in theory catch the vxr not sure how quick, would be an interesting comaprison, if he is running 260 then im running at the wheels what he is at the fly so should be interesting, have arrange meeting upa nd doing some comparisons dave.

They always say, its one thing to keep up with a car, its quite another to actually pass it

There's always gonna be someone faster or bigger than you, so I just think, sod it, have what you want and be happy with that

I dont know what the gearing is like in yours Tidgy, so even mine might give you a bit of stick Even with 5bhp more!!

How much can that box of yours take tho?? Apparently the 6 speeds can manage 600bhp, but I look forward to seeing and more so, hearing how long they last with that power in them!!
