[:O] BLIMEY !

I'd like a go in that, what gear did you hit 100 in, 4th I'd guess ?
yeah 4th, my gear changes were 2nd until 60 then i changed to 4th just over 80. no never done 1/4mile times, was never really interested in 1/4mile runs.. had a bit of wheel spin in 2nd, road was wet with not so great tyres.

Impressive! Especially 70 - 100

How come you can hit 60 in second?

Does your car rev higher? Changed gear ratio's?

The gearbox on the 130/150 have slightly longer ratios than the 115bhp, 60 is near 5000rpm and was still pulling!

Interesting Point, my PD150 wont do more than 50 in second, and yet changes into 4th at the same time, i.e. around 4000 RPM..

Cant seem to find the original vid I made, but heres one to 80:

Im seeing Mickys as being slightly quicker. His 60-100 is around mid 8 seconds, I get James' over 9 seconds everytime.
Could this be down to Mickys lack of weight? James, Im not saying you're a fat bas as I know you're not [;)], just that Mickys car is essentially a van with no rear seats.

How have you guys been holding the camera? I wouldn't mind a go at this.
Everytime I've used vagcom to log I've always done 60-100 in very high 7's, early 8's but that was using 4th gear only. It will be slightly slower when doing 20-100 due to the use of an extra gear, 3rd going into 4th.
