Evening all. Thought I'd come join here seeing as I've been to the last two Ace Wheels shows.
Even went on track late last night but I wasn't happy with my car's cornering, and it took half the straight to build up any boost! boohoo. Think I got slowest time of the night.
Anyway. Enough about my car's inability to go round in circles. Some of you may have seen her engine open at the show last night. She's a turbo diesel (pd130) converted Skoda Fabia and gets about 55mpg, but still running 220bhp/360 lb/ft. Since the Nitrous has gone in (and yes I tried using that last night too
) it's now around 240/245bhp, but is being custom mapped week friday. Shame it takes so long for all those horses to be extracted from the engine lol. Hoping for 300bhp on NOS when mapped again but I don't think I'll bother taking it on track again. 2nd is too short, and 3rd is too laggy. Damn close ratio 6 speed boxes! Here's a couple of pics.
