1/4's wont be too impressive, like I said gearing is shit.. Its the off the line acceleration that just blows me away.. There are pleanty of members who have driven the car who I'm sure will back me up

id be very suprised if you were crossing the line at over 100mph anyway. i think youd be looking about 90ish mph maybe at 15.5-16 seconds.

id be quite interested to see what davey gets. using my drag strip skills and calculations. id expect it to be similar to a 2.0 8v corsa, so around about the 16 ish figure. maybe a 15.8

if it beats integra type-r's to 60, then it does 0-60 in less than 6.3 seconds.

my mates xe did a 14.8 last year at the pod that thats was ferly standerd. i still cant see how this 1.8 with less power and less torque could be faster than an xe
