PB's everywhere

The Wellington Invasion Comp 3 Meeting at Fram Autolite Dragway Meremere today was a good one.
We ran back to back 9.236 second passes and managed to set a PB in 60ft (1.50), E.T (9.236) and mph (154.8).
A huge thanks goes to Dave from Tune Technic for coming along today and data logging each run and making small adjustments to the tune before every pass to get the most out of the car. This makes a huge difference.
Thanks to GRP Performance Automatics for the bulletproof gearbox. The car ran like a dream today.

NZ Performance Car Article

Sorry for the late update from our last drag racing event at Meremere Dragway. Long story short we manage to set a PB in mph during the event. We ran 153mph! No PB's for ET unfortunately, but we were having issues getting the car to launch off the line. Good news is we found the cause of the issue, albeit a couple weeks after the event. It's been fixed and car is ready to go. Since that event we were lucky enough to have NZ Performance Car Magazine do an article on the car. Check out the Christmas issue in news stands now.

2017/2018 Competition Meeting 1 - Meremere Dragway

Last weekend was the first Test and Tune and Competition Meeting for the 2017/2018 Drag Racing Season. Unfortunately bad weather prevented us from doing any testing on Saturdays Test day, which meant we had to do our testing at the Competition Meeting on Sunday.

Our aim for the day was to make sure the car went from A to B with no issues, the new slightly larger slicks wouldn't rub on the guards during a pass, and to iron out any issues we may face during the test sessions before we got into competing for the season ahead.

Long story short, things went well, no major issues to speak of. Just a couple minor, more annoying issues to take care of which we should have sorted by the next event.

At the next meeting we plan to turn the power up and go for gold...

Thanks to Turbosmart, GRP Performance Automatics and Tune Technic for their continued support.
