haha thanks for that Breville. The annoying thing is I can't go to track days with no road licence. I wouldn't have thought it mattered.

Sorry to say BMW86.. but it was not close... not by my stands anyhow... off the lights we got the upper hand, but from 60KM/H onwards it just pulled away...by abt 140km/h it was 3 cars infront and still gainning fast!

They have been for about 3 years. They are quick but I wouldn't think a stockie would pound a 135 like that, though they are hard to get off the line with all the weight.

the SRT8 may be fast in a straight line, but it will handle like a boat on the twisty stuff

found this:

"Chrysler conservatively estimates a rest to 100kmh acceleration time of 5.5 seconds, but we squeezed a time of 5.2 seconds. "

Still looks like a dog, but. Reminds me of a gangster car from the '50s.

Sorry to hear about your misfortune harpoon.

As for your car being tucked away in the garage somewhere that is the worst possible thing you can do to it. Being a nice guy and trying to help out fellow BMW owner I could take your car for a drive every now and then, I promise I won't chase any V8s.:smile:

Got another one under the belt. 47 on a 35. I didn't even see him until after I took a turn at around 30. He said he thought I was trying to run away from him. And in my head I was going "if i was trying to run, i wouldn't be going only 47 in this car."
