Can't click the link. BTW I got a BMC CDA & Supersprint exhaust. I would hope that it was a little quicker than a standard abarth(well I know it is). Also can I ask who's deleting threads & posts in threads? Helz & the negotiator posted in this thread earlier & their posts are now missing.

Re: 1/4 mile time list

Think mine will do a 1/4 mile in, uhm, 15 minutes rather than 15 seconds

Re: 1/4 mile time list

Naughty talk about penises, I didn't see how 1/4 mile times was comparable, i think it's a legitimate thing for a car forum.

Re: 1/4 mile time list

OK, I replied to this and it got deleted and some of my post was actually relevant so I'll say it again. I thought this forum was for people to share advice and ideas not to show off who had the biggest weenie. There are plenty of boyracer sites for people to do that on and I would be very disappointed if this turned into another chav site instead of being an open minded, welcoming to all forum.

I thought this forum was "for talk on all things Fiat", but Leisure Lounge shows that it's not exclusively so. I'd suggest that the 1/4 mile times of Fiats is more Fiat related than what I had for my supper. (nothing, BTW)

Re: 1/4 mile time list

Yes, all opinions do count, which is why I'm peed off that someone decided to delete my opinion because it didn't agree with theirs. I still think it's taking the forum in the wrong direction - does aaaaanyone else out there think the same?

Re: 1/4 mile time list

I tend to agree with you Helz and we'll keep an eye on how this thread pans out.

I may, however, change my mind if I get a good time on a 1/4 mile though

Re: 1/4 mile time list

i think quarter mile times would turn into what helz says

maybe just a list of quarter mile times that aint open to discussion

although if i had a faster car, i would most probably want to discuss the fact that my car could achieve such times and speeds

Re: 1/4 mile time list

Originally I was looking at this thread from a motorsport point of view. I think there should be a motorsport section for people who race fiats or fiat engined cars. Like a friend of mine who's just built a single seater race car using a fiat uno fire engine. It would be good for people who race to be able to share tips & info. Not everybody owns a fiat to drive on the road.

I also think that to be a good idea, then again there are engine specific forums around . They can always post in the general section
