my best time was at classic ford show 2011, where i won the over 3000cc class with a 12.18sec.
we have now put a stupid spoiler on which im hopeing will help me get the power down. fingers crossed will be in the 11's at retro show Smile

I'm not sure a spoiler will do much good for DIY RWYB cars like ours??

The important thing is getting off the line cleanly.

What is your engine spec, what gearbox and what are your 60 foot times like on the 1/4 mile?

Show us a picture of your best time slip.
