I'm off to santa pod on the 26/27th of this month. Its the fast show weekend with a RWYB on the saturday, just wondering if any one else was going. I realise its the same weekend as the Wales run so i don't want to come across as competition  :ohmy:

I'm of course taking it down the strip and will try and get some videos etc. anybody want to hazard a guess at my quarter mile times...lol....be nice!  :biggrin:

I really dont have a clue what these cars run but i would think mid-late 15s early 16s but that really is just a complete and utter random guess lol

Would go but i dont know if the car will be finished by then, and i was gona go to wales drive if its completly finished and proven to work and be reliable, but times not looking like its on my side  ::)

If its nearly finished i may take it there for a trial run as santapod is a lot closer to home than north wales, and should it break down or i find a problem with something, it will be alot easyer and less hastle to get it home  :blink:

We're all friends here, "clash-trophes" are bound to happen, I haven't even broken the bad news about Japfest II clashing with Powderham and JAPS yet!

They have weight on their side though, well the lack of it anyway! lol I do know that if its damp then it will just spin the wheels, its useless in the wet.

Well...i didnt take my car due to having a string of tecnical problems all last week. I've taken a step back and worked out the problems so will hopefully get them sorted in the next couple of weeks with the lighter nights etc.
I actully went to look at a BMW 320td last nite as i had fell out with the mira, but it wasnt for me... the mira is too much fun if a little difficult sometimes!  :ohmy:
