    Default Santa Pod Advise Please!

    Hi guys, I had a 2008 1.6T SRI corsa with 192bhp. Its set a 14.8 @94mph at santa pod. I now have a 2008 astra vxr, I havent yet taken it on at santa pod but will be in the next couple months.
    Is it likely that I wont beat 14.8? because I will be a bit gutted if my corsa is faster than my new astra.

    I have just put a full system decat exhaust on it and intend on getting a pipercross enclosed induction next month.

    Could you please advise me what qtr mile time i should be expecting?

    Cheers

    Your tyres, level of skill and whether you get a controlled start will make a big difference too as you have so much more torque than a 1.6T

    Id say full power in 1st is pointless, you will waste too much spinning, a good launch and quick changes will see good times, useable power is 2nd and 3rd.

    Cheers guys, some good info. Hopefully shouldnt spin much at @santapod because its mega sticky. I just need to get tuning so i am not dissapointed when i go. Hopefully get to 300bhp and I will be really happy
