This is an occasion where I am gonna side with Carl over Tony lol.

Tony, if your tyres differ from the shitty run flats your car came with then they are a mod - just because Carl chose a better tyre mod than you did you cant go whingeing about it...

He isnt whingeing because you have an LSD and a custom down pipe setup, or a petrol engine lol!!!

I'm not whingeing mate - everyone knows what modifications I've done to my car, and I'm not begrudging Carl for choosing the tyres that he did. I've not once complained about his choice - I'm more bemused by the fact that he doesn't make any mention of this mod. Strange as it may seem to you, I'm one of the people who's constantly encouraging Carl to get into the 12s, and trying to work out a way for him to do it consistently. I take the piss out of him because I know how hard he's trying!! I also know how he is trying to compare his car to mine, which in itself is a futile exercise given they're totally different machines. He has been making a point of how quick his car is over 60ft, and I totally agree that it is. However, my point I'm trying to put across to him is that the tyres are giving a distinct advantage there, and one that he cannot (as he seems to be doing) ignore.

Make comments where you see fit, but please try do understand the full salient points of a situation before taking a side, whichever one that is!!

They are still road legal tyres. Tony will definately get a better 60" with the R888's, as he has LSD to warm up both tyres at the start by flooring it on the wet patch.

Agreed.

Carl has done a great job to get down into the 13.0's but in order to do this he has taken his car one step further than any other 335d drivers and added super grippy R888's, so whilst Carl doesn't have the most powerful 335d he is able to use more of it's power and translates that into a good time. His previous best on normal tyres was 13.38 so it shows what an impact the tyres are having. LSD aside Carl might still break into the 12's, but he'll just need all things to go right on the day. All good stuff.

Jules.

What difference do you think the wind makes. It appears there was a 15-20mph tail wind on the day. Im not knocking the time at all just curious.

It can make quite a difference. The last time we went there was a 20-25mph head wind, this reduced my times from 13.2 to a best of 13.5 (all suffered the same), the opposite way around would be ideal....

R888's and another secret weapon it appears... (best mod of all) LOL




Still a great time though mate.. You seem to leap off the line in that vid and a 1.8 60ft time is 4WD terriotory. What sort of 60ft times were you running before the 888's?

Can't make out what you are pointing to, but I'll hazzard a guess at rear seats etc removed?
