1/4 mile time list

just an idea, why dont we have a 1/4 mile list, where we can submit our 1/4 times and have the top 30 listed? a bit of a competition but proof will be needed for entery? cool i think lol

Re: 1/4 mile time list

I think it'd be cool as well. But no doubt the negotiator will point out all the legal ramifications & ruin it all.

Re: 1/4 mile time list

It's a rubbish idea, this site is meant to be about sharing advice and ideas, not about who has the biggest penis. If you want to compare penis size, why not hang out at some local boy racer site?

Re: 1/4 mile time list

Yep, like the cruise site I go on where penis size is appreciated by petrol sniffers! Did you mean chauvinist BTW? You don't want to scare off the average punter, there are plenty of places to go to show off already, this is one of few remaining decent places and if it turns into yet another one full of chavs with souped up engines and nekkid women then I for one don't want to know.

Re: 1/4 mile time list

All I know is I like cars, so if someone wants to thrash the nut's out of theirs(on a private track of course) & post it up on the forum, who cares. & BTW did you "naked women".

Re: 1/4 mile time list

ok, the left column on the left slip is my old 1242 8v non-turbo cinq.

Right column on the right slip is my 1242 8v turbo cinq on 3.5 psi boost. (now running 5psi, will be interested to see the times at York this year).

Yes, there's much faster cars about, but these ain't bad times for centos.

Re: 1/4 mile time list

wow, really?
It's a low boost 1242 turbo, was about 0.2 seconds slower than a 1108 high boost. I expect to be in the low 16's this year with the boost upped, if I get a really big tailwind, maybe very high 15's

Re: 1/4 mile time list

I don't know what the times are for a standard abarth, 19secs probably, when I have the remap done I'll give you a race then.
