At Palmersport they run 205bhp clios in full stripped out racer trim on the same track at at the same time as their 'semi-racer' 320 bhp Porsche 911 GP3's.

The clios are superb little things. Quick, grippy and chuckable, although predominantly biased to understeer.

The 911's destroy them though.

I realise that you are NOT making a statement which validates what I am about to say, but....

On the day that a Porsche 911 driver passes/dominates a Clio and says 'Yeah bitch, I destroyed you' then the Clio has done it's job as far as I am concerned.

I like your thinking Matt......

So in the same vein, because the 335i driver EVEN acknowledged my existence by flexing his probably loafer clad foot, i win by proxy?

I had a nice drive out yesterday, I caught up with some slow moving traffic, but it was otherwise uneventful. You probably do. I felt that by slowing down lots, then speeding up and catching them again 3 times, I scored what I believe is known as a TKO (in boxing.)

I think that you can only claim a 'win' if you are actually in competition with someone.

Driving a car quickly in the same postcode as another reasonably fast car does not constitute a competition.

You are clearly wrong.

Otherwise I didn't score some WIN against a minicab, a mondeo, several corsas and a hearse today.

I kicked that hearses arse off the line, yo.

Thing is I pulled in in front of him, and there was another hearse in front. So I had one in front and one behind. They didn't seem very happy that I'd cut up their little convoy. Should have won the race then. Not my problem

Sorry to burst your bubble mate, but John's car (now yours) never got anywhere near 11's when he had it..
His quickest run on the 1/4 was this one...

He never got a good run on the 1/4 when running NOS, as every time he ran with the gas on, it encounted problems (safe mods etc)..
Having said that, 12's is easily possible with just Exhaust, Intake, Fuel pump and software. That's with nothing removed and on standard street tyres.. So FWD hatches can cut it sometimes..

I think you may have missed the point on this one lol, but thanks for posting the video. I had a look but couldn't find a pod run, only the various dyno's etc.

Still 112mph is a good trap speed, similar
to C63!

What 60ft on that run?! I remember this car now!

Going for 135i mate.. Will be some point in April hopefully..

Don't forget that us FWD boys haven't got the grip off the line you RWD boys have (especially when using semi slicks ).. I only managed a 2.44 on my PB.. But conditions weren't great to be fair..

Still think with decent Tyres a 350+HP fwd car can do 2.0 on a good day!

With 888's etc most definately.. But with Michelin PS2's, the best of all the run's i've ever done was a 2.2 on the Golf. Just wish I had done that on my PB
Never tried slicks or semi slicks (888's etc), but would be interesting to try. I've always wanted to get the best result possible with the car at the same spec as it's used every day for work..

I thought it was only legal to overtake a funeral procession if you overtake the line of funeral vehicles in its entirity. If you overtake part of the procession that is illegal. Correct me if i'm wrong. Either way I would not overtake unless it was an easy overtake and it was the entire convoy; its disrepectful for a minor gain in progress.
