Was at classic ford today at the pod.

After two poor starts and a missed gear change, i managed a 14.644 @ 95.67mph, even though i had to back off slightly to stop wheel spin in 1st
Previous best was 14.805 @ 93.47mph

think i might need an LSD...... Mr. Green

Well pleased Very Happy Very Happy

Were you there Yesterday Stu??

I was sure I saw your car mooching around. Great result there mate. Yesterday traction was spot on up to about 2pm. Then it just started fading away.
Not far to the 100mph barrier now Smile
