Do you mean VMax Walt? I missed the last one as i didn't have my car ready, but i went up to Bruntingthorpe (the same venue) last week with a couple of mates, i couldn't break 190, best run was 188mph.
I need to address the seal around my intercooler, as my intake temps were going up to 57-degrees and then the ECU was pulling boost...... Either that or get some better cores welded into the intercooler..... Or wait for a cooler day

I'm loosing about 40hp when the temps go up, the RS tuning program is pretty conservative with it's parameters, they say a fresh engine with this set up is good for 50,000 + miles before a rebuild. It could no doubt deal with everything being hotter, but i'd go through P&C's more often...... The only way to keep my power when flat out is to get the intake temps cooler, i just wish i could afford a Secan..... I'm playing with the idea of getting CTR to weld some similar Marston cores in, but it'll still be an expensive job, and i can't justify it at the moment.... It feels bloody quick anyway, and just shy of 190 in a little over a mile isn't too shabby. We didn't have the whole runway on the day, they'd coned off the end so we were breaking at around 1.2 miles
