Yeah, starting with launch control is absolutely neccesary because with the 2 liter, this turbo comes in rather late...

I was fourth overall...you really need a lighter car for the short courses...a sand rail with a 2,4 type 4 came in first The tires are scary too; I hit some in a run and damaged the Kamaii spoiler
The turbo hardly had time to spool up between chicanes. Its not ideal, but was great fun nevertheless.

I was however the only car that did both the dragrace AND the slalom at the european Bug-In Managed a personal best of 13,23 / 103.6 mph in the quarter I was thrilled with this result from this stock 2 liter engine!

I like it! You can even see the big smile on my face (the passenger) Unbelievable how fast that rail went through the course. Leaving the big chicane with the curb-stones, the rail is doing around 120km/h (75mph)... Very intensive experience with all those tires and air passing by.

Hey Walter, thanks for joining the EBI Slalom competition! Always nice to see that fat chick dance.

wow that looks way fun and scary! I'd be afraid of tagging the tires like you did :P Is there any reason they chose tires over pylons? Awesome videos, your car really scoots from the start and your 1/4 mile time is still pretty respectable. Any reason you hit the headlights in the corner, I'm not sure you could do that by accident.

I understood its all they were handed to... the crew preferred pylons too, but it was not to be this time. The tires were not fixed thankgod, or the damage would have been more serious.

Thanks, yeah sure, I'll tell why and how but only after several Chimay beers, so consider yourself invited to EBI next year (for your own expense of course )
