Talk about numbers like this is cheap, doing it is not!

It's a serious achievement and requires dedication amongst many other things that those who haven't done it can't understand.

Very very well done, fabulous achievement.

It definitely looks and sounds like there is more to come.
I still can't believe that our shitty old beetles are going this quickly.
So what does it feel like doing 170mph, Richie?

I'm not sure how to embed the videoplayer so: http://livestream.com/SantaPod/MainEvent/videos/88182981 and fast forward to 1h 47m for the Live stream coverage including the interview with Richie at the top end.

Hi Ole

Thanks everyone Grin


J-F the data shows me that there is at least a 7.8x in it so I will keep working away at the set up,  I did try some more hp on one pass on Saturday but it was to much to get it to stick all the way[ we saw 3rd gear wheelie at approx 137mph on slo mo video Shocked]  so if I can control that who knows.
Watching the top end video on the 7s pass I think its time to add some front end downforce and see how that helps, was nice to do it with stock front end though Cool

cheers Richie

Truly incredible. Well done to you and the team. I want to still see that perma-grin next time you are out!  Grin

I hope everything is ok with the car after the last run too and it's nothing too major.

Did you lift in 4th gear? Skinne's 8.02 run I believe was about 10mph higher.
