hello ... work done this year on the car , my last event was on the rain .. and so my car was ok , unfortunetly i came 4th ... because of a bmw with rain tyres who was faster by 0.2 of a sec faster (he got a little dry ground) but 1st and 2nd were some golf putting down over 270 bhp , so i will start saving money for a big turbo and some minor stuff also a LSD :D to be ok for next year , in wet i went about 15.8 sec in dry almost a sec faster so 14.8 sec is pretty ok with stock tyres maybe faster with slicks (ok for my little turbo) i hope next year i touch the 13.99 sec mark
Here are some movies with some cars , bare in mind my start was at 1000 rpm ... everything above that i would of staid in place ... so pretty ok only half of 3rd and 4th were down ok ..

Hello , the car is working great ... another series of mods will come including a new bigger intercooler , a subaru turbo (or ko4 ) ,oil cooler and maybe LSD ...
The car is runing fast anyway , last time 2nd place on anonymous drag racing day
bx vs v-tec honda (220 bhp)


bx vs volvo turbo (very fast off the line on wet ... but got him :D )



bx vs seat leon tdi 240 bhp (bx win)


bx vs seat ibiza (runing 250 bhp and very light , on dry he does 13.5 sec on 1/4 miles... wich is fast, he`s the one that got me )



For now i`m searching like hell on ebay for a good priced turbo :roll:

about 2500 euros (and for friends a little low ) , i spent way more than this to get it this far (if you can believe double and something)
For it to be racing ready next year (to have a chance wining the championship ) it needs a bigger turbo , oil cooler , and intercooler (the intercooler i will get this week so it comes with the car)
Also an LSD :wink:
