Once again i am taking my piazza down to eastern creek this wednesday (14/12/05) to see what she can do, hopefully better then last time 15.606. few changes to the setup this time i am running a full 3 inch exhaust compared to standard and alot wider tires to try and help with traction. Will post up my times on thursday and any good pics i get

yeah well about that 1/4 mile thing.......... The car bombed out, at first it would not rev, think it was because it was too hotter day and it didnt like running 14psi boost. turned the boost down and it went a little better but still no where near as good as it should, it is back to the the drawing board now.
got some alright pics of it on the start line though, also it is meant to have an lsd

I still rekon a set of wide rear 14" rims will help a bit, well once you get the LSD and clutch thing sorted out.

Small water squirter/mister on the intercooler, something like an old washer bottle with the right nozzles/jets, might help on a hot day with 14psi.

If you know of an old Jackaroo with a rear washer, in the LH rear quarter theres a PVC bag with a motor/pump on the bottom hanging off a bracket, one of them would be ideal.
