    Default Onboard with Time Attack Winner Jimmy White VX220 (2011, Club, RWD)

    Well, it's not a VXR but Jimmy did once own a VXR so may well have been a contributor here. When he decided to go into Time Attack the VXR was just 'too nice/rare' to strip and modify so Jimmy took a standard VX220 and supercharged it. I don't know a great deal about the spec but it's pretty rapid as you can see ...

    And he WON the Championship in it against MUCH more powerful RWD cars.

    This is onboard with Jimmy as he sets a laptime 3 secs quicker than his Championship rival and pre-race Championship leader, in an 600bhp RX7. This nets Jimmy the 2011 Title (Club, RWD)

    It's the supercharger whine you can hear. The mic on the video system is not great and seems to exaggerate this, it actually sounds quite meaty. I have some video from my own system from testing which I may post. I agree the sound is not great, I was thinking 'sowing machine' ops

    This is more like what it REALLY SOUNDS LIKE in the car. It is Jimmy's best lap from the training day we did the day before using my video system (0.5 quicker than he went on the Sunday).
