Thanks guys. It pulls about 200 fbhp at 18 psi of boost, plus about 60bhp of NOS. The trans is a Helix 6 paddle clutch, Type 9 SCCR box then english axle with atlas comp half shafts and side gears,hung on a 4 bar and coilovers.

That's ridiculous. Same sort of time as an early Nissan R35 GT-R, or a supercharged V8 Jag F type.... with an A series. Goes to show how the weight kills the performance. Fair play to you sir. Nuttier than squirrel sh... is about right!
Thanks, yes the quote came originally from the operator of the RR when we checked the power. Last year we saw 278 bhp with the NOS but were losing boost from the dump valve fluttering. Fixed that and the new PB resulted.
So having torn the axle mounts last season, some redesign and welding by a good friend, it was back to business at the Pod last Monday. Six strong passes left the axle unmoved, and a new PB of 11.72 @ 115.66 so well pleased with that.
Phil,I changed the gearing by replacing the drag slicks with Toyo 888s, about 15% reduction. This gave much better performance off the line and eliminated the bouncing. To compensate I have fitted a VP1 cam from Avonbar, which has helped top end performance but I still run into the limiter crossing the line.There is another gear in the box (type 9)but the shift is awkward and I lose more time than I gain.
