Took the Manta to the Drags last week.

All runs were 14.9 @ 160kmh (100mph)....

I just cannot get it off the line cleanly, so frustrating!, as even with the Auto selector held in the gear one position Manuallyarrow-10x10.png as soon as you release your foot it shifts up into 2nd, combine that with an open centre diff and low down V8 torque it just spins the wheel as soon as you floor it, let off the throttle to modulate the wheel spin and bam second gear.

Long story short may as well start off in 2nd gear

The MPH is good though and if I can sort out the issue with the auto it should run high 13's like the cars below that have the same 100mph terminal speed

Audi A4    2017    AWD    7A    5.0 sec    13.7 sec @ 100.4 mph
BMW 328    2016    RWD    8A    5.2 sec    13.9 sec @ 99 mph
Chevrolet Impala    1996    RWD    4A    5.6 sec    13.9 sec @ 100.9 mph
Lexus GS 350    2007    AWD    6A    5.3 sec    13.8 sec @ 101.8 mph
Mitsubishi 3000GT    1997    AWD    6M    4.8 sec    13.6 sec @ 100.5 mph
Rolls-Royce Phantom    2014    RWD    8A    5.5 sec     13.9 sec @ 100 mph
Volkswagen GTI    2015    FWD    6M    5.6 sec    14.2 sec @ 100 mph

So a small update on this thing Engine supported by engine crane and front end removed Remote Brake booster fitted behind front drivers side guard Gas struts from a VT Holden Commodore fi

So I finally got my sump back, after having been modified to clear the Steering rack Project images are available to Club Members Only, Click to become an OMOC Member. Pickup had to be trimm

Next up was the steering and front suspension. Because I lowered the rack 50mm, and the car has 40mm lowered Spax springs which cannot hold the weight of the car (note the first 4 coils below!)  its
