    Elroy sweepstake

    What time will he get for his first run at action?

    £10 entry, closest guess takes 75% of pot & 25% donation to forum

    Anyone up for it?

    (in the event of a no show, money will be returned)

    Whoaaaaa!

    Steady! I'm currently trying to sort my driveshaft/ hub issue. If your really planning on doing this, wait till the truck is race ready.

    After becoming a bit addicted to 'street outlaws' I was thinking exactly the same thing

    I'm going for 16.66 (seconds)

    Fully expect to at least get my money back....

    you'd make 16 seconds with 130HP.. unless you missed a gear severely.

    Used to surprise me how many things you'd expect to be quite quick that with a combo of shit driving and presumably other factors, would consistently make 15-16 second quarters.

    Stuff like sierras, vectras, r32s, golf gti...

    Oh, I know it has the potential to be quick, but straight of the bat?

    Lol, u know what these golf r32s drivers are like... Thinking they have some thing fast!

    Nothing much has changed, sub 13 seconds is probably faster than 95% of traffic on the road, sub 12 is shifting and sub 11 is fecking rapid

    So, you've spent a lot of time and money building a racecar and now you're not going to race it. Really!!!!
