Well would you believe that my 2CV managed 26.24 quarter with a terminal speed of 47.02 mph.

WOW!!!!

The headwind didnt help, there was some serious stuff there :-)

:lol: Good work

Best I could manage there in the BX was 15.9 @88mph I think. I had a dodgey gear linkage (theres a vid of it coming off racing Luke's car!) and 16inch alloys at the time, plus a nearly full tank of fuel and a boot full of subs etc. (think thats all the good excuses I used for the lame time!)

Got 15.6 @ 92mph at a different location, thats a bit more like as its the book speed. Had smaller wheels back then too.

Gutted I missed that event though, let me know if theres another?

Cheers

there is a few more planned for next year at the pod i think, quite a few from the 2CV club want to do another so will let you know.

I've spotted an abandoned rover SD1 locally, heheh, my plan is to go knock on the door and buy it, must have V8 drag power :-)
