" I will be Back"
Yes we noticed that. You were pulling HARD to the right. Almost off track.

Could you give us your Views about the TRACK CONDITIONS. From Where we were sitting the track looked uneven.

I heard you were running 205's is that true..?? Why..???

The Game over 800 was running 245's.


@ THE DRAGSTAR Boys.

Please give us your review about your runs also.

The q7 Launch, SL 55 runs, Vtec Runs also.


Jinendra (Speed Serpant) is also on the forum. Can he elaborate more on his starts.

EDIT: The Night before the drags you had slicks on. But on the Day of the drags you had semi slicks. Why the change..???

In fact in the practice run he was pulling more to the left (check the video)

In his other thread about the dyno run, he mentioned that the OHC wheel well can't accomodate higher than 205s. Modifications are required (or spacers i guess) to upgrade the tyre size.

The Night Before we had noticed the drop in oil pressure so we decided to not to run the car on slicks.

The starts were absolutely fine. It was the gearbox which acted up on the shifting as i have mentioned earlier.

It was good. Good seating. Security up to the mark. We were sitting at the start line so got a good wiff of burning rubber, clutches etc
Fans, Coolers, Chairs, Food, drinks all accessible easily.

Ahh so his final run was on the right hand side of the track where he was pulling right.
Someone joked that maybe an eqvivalent of his weight had to be put on th other seat.

Yes but then traction..

That was the whole point of me clicking that snap! It should have read OVABOOST (as in over-boosting). Was waiting for somebody to spot it...

The M800 looks mean. No wonder jaws were dropping in front of it!
I am waiting to go home and watch the videos as Youtube is blocked at office!

Wow, 13.2 secs from a 1.4L NA Zen is amazing.

Its not impossible but the car will have to be as light as hell.

Powerwise, i dont think the 1.4 would have been producing anything in excess of 145-150bhp. So to meet the power to weight requirement of around 225-230bhp/ton, the car would have to be as light as 650-670kgs.

BTW, whats the stock weight of a Zen?

Don't remember the exact figure, but, it's about 750kgs.

Jitu, you really need to concentrate on traction. 350bhp with FWD is overkill. Had you got a chance to practice your starts before this? What was your time?
