Breakdown of the runs....

1st run. 17.8837
Bongo Fury vs a Beetle.
Turned out the bug was an 11 second car having a warm up, so I had NO chance!
Left the lights with a decent reaction time but the wheels just spun in first AND second up to nearly the first sixth.
Obviously pushed too hard off the line.

2nd Run Vs Honda Civic. 17.6239
Decided to try to put some heat in the tyres, so attempted a wheels spin in the warm up section.
SCHOOL BOY ERROR... red lined in 1st and killed the engine.
Managed to roll to the line but couldn't start her! tried 5 times before I as told I was going to be pushed back.
Tried to start one last time and she fired up!
But she had obviously been flooded so she was running awfuly and rough.
Wasn't paying attention so my reaction time is awful.
Saying that, the fact that I struggled to get full power from her in the first 1/6 meant that I got less wheel spin and got a better time!

3rd Run vs a new Corsa VXR (BEST) 17.4685
Managed to keep the wheel spin down.
Well happy I kept up with the Corsa which is SUPPOSED to be 200bhp.
Best run I managed.

4th run vs Civis (same as run 2) 17.6390
Decided to look at my power graph from the re-map and try to change gear at about 3.5-3.6k.
Obviously it didn't work! LOL:
Need to just use my gut and feel when to change.

Might even invest in a pair of slicks for the front tyres next time I:

Do you have vagcom Jim as it would be interesting to see what that says as a quarter mile compared to the real thing, might be able to give you a challenge if you do T:

Do have to say that yours must be a lovely setup as the photos don't show any smoke at all T:
