Thanks!
Yeah it's interesting to see!
Seeing the times makes me want to build something all round that blows them all out of the water!
Maybe I just need a GTM coupe!

So you don't think a fighter jet engine sticking out the back of a Mayfair shell would take a corner or get me to the chip shop in comfort?

You've given me the best idea ever Wade, I need a bigger car!
Arm rests on both sides, up right position with a reclined position only a lever away, on sliding rails for short and tall people. . . It'll need cutting a lot. . . might be better to just use the reclining mechanism and get an upholsterer to make the seating part, would need to be narrower than usual to keep you in tight. Oh this would be epic. . . Reclined at the traffic lights, then with an easy movement, you're back up right and driving away at MK2
Sounds comfortable!

kaison ,will you be making the order on the chart like a leaderboard ,or random times as it is now ?
i agree with wade ,if i had a lsd and yoks and 100kg less weight it would be a fair bit quicker , but not worth it for the outlay for a couple of days a year ,when i drive it year round hence the cheap falkens .

Ivan, at the top of the chart, you can click to order them any way you like, slowest or quickest 1/4 or 1/8, or arrange them to Honda only, or AWD. . .
Shaun, there are multiple AWD times.

Maybe not as impressive as most but here it is.



I did alternate runs with my mate Martyn.



Could do better off the mark so hoping for better results next time.

My Mini is a 1.8 Rover VVC engined (not modified) with close ratio PG1 gearbox, standard ECU, 2" RC40 no cat exhaust, Watson's subframe kit, Metro brakes and Honda seats. All steel body inc steel welded front. Metro 13" alloys fitted with 175x50x13 Yokohama A539 tyres.
