Ok I admit it I am a boy racer at heart
My son persuaded me to go to one of these rwyhb meets at crail airfield...
boy did i enjoy blowing the doors off everything that I ran with ...
Kept away from the nos boys tho...
Best time was 14.88 secs and a final speed of 100.2 mph.
This was the fastest fwd car of the day...
scoobies were posting 13-14.5's
cosworths 12-14's

thought The car did quite good (I was terrible ...re-action time typically 0.5 secs)

next time octane boost and re-gap the plugs
and take all the cr*p out the car

weheeee......

abbott ecu
lsd
dawes mbc
k+n
bailey atmospheric dump valve
17 wheels 235 / 40 section tyres
powerflow exhaust
lowered final drive
various poly bushes
40 groove discs
saabscene sticker
I did not think the times were that impressive (my re-actions especially so )
also the car did not get off the line very well
My best times came when I dribbled it off the line (very unimpressive) got it into second and then nailed it ..
without drama .. just takes off
I guess if I could get it off the line better
New shocks /different tyre pressure..I bet I could get a second off...
One nice thing my son reports that when it takes off it screams ..nice noise !!

I will look back at the abbott documentation
but it was the one down from the aero which as I understand has a uniquely high final drive..
I remember it to be the same as a fpt...
no need to change speedo settings abbott took care of that ...I had the gearbox re-built at the same time so maybe they changed the speedo drive as well..but I do not think so

If you mean you've now got a final drive ratio similar to one in a FPT then I believe it is no different!!!! At least Andy Bowles FPT is the same ratio as my Aero.
