    Ah that's interesting Phil, what sort of tyres/pressures were you running? BTW Martin Cowell's son Mark got in touch and we have exchanged much useful information, in fact that is what got me thinking down this route. Martin ran some amazing times/ ETs but all off quite modest 60 ft times.

    Worth a try Steve.....when the track is finally open again....I did find that my Sprite was very sensitive to tyre pressure to avoid bouncing.

    Bored now, thinking about the car bouncing around off the line, I wondered if it was some form of tyre shake. Also looking at the numbers, I think the car is overgeared, so fitted a pair of these, 205/60/13 Toyo 888, just as wide as the slicks, sticky, but crucially 8% lower diameter. If I can improve the early track acceleration I could finish up with better overall times but lower trap speed so avoiding the need for an extra shift.

    The AFR was around 13, dropping to 11 with the NOS on, I wasn't using the bottle heater so a bit more gas to come there.
