    PVS Strip Action ........ did you go down the strip ?
    I went down the strip - my cousin went first managed a 15.77, impressive considering he was taking it easy because it's my car !!!
    I then had a go...crpping myself, first time on the strip ever.
    Amazing how you totally block out everyone else and focus on the job ....
    Managed 15.1 - wahey at least I beat my cousin...
    I took the third and final stub and managed a 14.82....extremely pleased.
    Although the car was beaten every round - it's all good fun !
    Anyone else take their VXR's down ??
    Times ??
    Cheers

        I spoke to him, he did 3 runs.
        His best run was 13.4

            Would of thought a Stage 2 VXR would easily make the 13's.. 14.4 is a bit poor really.. I'd expect a well driven standard one to be getting close to that.. All down to driver though really..
            What Strip was this at, Pod?

                I know the feeling mate.. Especially as you miss all the action whilst queueing..
                Was there anymore VXR times? Seen plenty of pics of them going down.. And an new 888.. What did that get out of interest?

                  This car was belongs to our mapping specialist Stephan Klasen. The car is one of several running our Stage 3 before release, power TBA :wink:
                  A few weeks ago at Oschersleben ( their version of PV ) they have a 200 metre sprint, Stephans ran on standard tyres and was the fastest OPC (VXR) he did this in 9.1 seconds. With the Mickey Thompsons at Santa Pod yesturday his 200 meter time was 8.6 so they seem to be worth about 1/2 a second.
                  Mind you he has a long way to go to beat his Speedster Turbo.. this does 11.6 quarters @117 mph.

                      The weather was'nt exactly perfect for running up the strip
                      So enjoyable though

                        Yes but think what would it have been like with standard size slick tyres for acceleration. The ones fitted looked like bus tyres. I suppose he had to give others a bit of a chance

                          Good enough to help one of the Corsa lads get an 11.8 @ 121mph though
                          Standard 1/4 for the VXR is 14.6 if im not mistaken.
                          18" AND 19" won't help the 1/4 times at all.

                            I arrived at the track and got directed into the farthest corner of the car park... bit annoying considering i wanted to race. got to the signing on room, and slung the keys at my 18yo son (who'd never been up the strip before). he raced off and brought the car back.
                            The 1st run was a low rev "pull-away" then a hard shift into second which spun the tyres. backed off then on the throttle again = 15.4 or something.
                            The 2nd run he spun the water off the tyres before staging, then ran a smooth 14.2 @ 98.86mph, against a 888 diesel's 15.0 @ 90mph.
                            Final run was a harder pull from the line which spun the tyres, backed off and nailed the throttle again, which led to another 14.2 @ 98.86mph!
                            Not bad considering its only had a VPC remap and front de-cat pipe.
                            I think i can see a 13 sometime soon.

                              Nice time mate.. The 13's have been avoiding me a few times now... .. Last time I ran (the other week), I had 3 14.0's @ 99mph in a bloody row... Wasn't very fraustrating at all.. :wink:
                              I will crack a 13.9 @ 100mph soon.. I will, I will!!
