After seeing the hybrid PD130 video I thought I'd put one up for comparison

Couldnt be bothered to change into 4th on this vid thats why the pull seems to be dieing off at around 95mph... im making the poor thing scream its heart out in 3rd. I also lift off as soon as I get past 100.

My 2nd - 3rd gearchange is a lot quicker when I don't have to hold my camera phone too [:p]

3gp video, I can view it in quicktime / real player.

If you look closely on my video I dont hit the gas until 2 secs in, and i hit 100 at 13 secs in.

PMSL! And my knob is bigger than both of yours!

I ran both side by side taking in to account the delay on the petrols start and the petrol is slightly quicker. The diesel would have been faster with a quicker change to 3rd gear and the traction control off.

My car is faster [:p]

Will try to do one of the R1 going from 30-100mph and post it, but it wont be easy so dont hold up much hope!

i would have been better to change at 50mph into third.

Aye - It seemed to be in 2nd gear for too long. A change at 50mph would have been more productive I think.

You must be really quick with the gears by the way!!!
