But you don't see anyone post all those different variables when posting 1/4 mile time slips so I don't think a posted 100-200 kph time need to be any different.

As I suspected this thread is pretty quiet. Too bad...but I suppose more people are after big HP numbers for bragging rights than for actually making the car faster.
I think this is a very good way to see how fast the car is and not the driver. This tells moore of the car than a 1/4 mile run which depends a lot of the driver.
So... come on and post or take the car out for the 100-200 run and then post!

I'll tape it - I have a Euro cluster, too. How much boost can I run??
If I am running max boost, I may be able to get under 4.......

Pedal down at 80, start clock at 100, stop clock at 200, right???

You guys are going to laugh your asses off when you see it.

would it work if i posted 50-110 times? i dont think i can find a non-policed stretch of road that's long enough for 60-125 (mph). what about 40-80? that's a good street measure. more on this tonight.....

Give us a chance, 60-125 mph, not something I just run down the steet and do. My car is mostly stock so I am not going to place well but I would like the comparison. Good test of these cars since launch time is not a factor. I can't bring myself to launch it hard, but 60-100+ is no problem, in the right place. Police can be unforgiving at anything over 100, which they should be.

Juan: How much fuel is in you're tank during the run? how was the humidity, tempreature, tire pressure and do you have all teh stock hardware in the car (tool kit, spare tire etc)?

I have recorded such info on my fully stock car last fall, a few days from now i will re-do the runs with a lightly modded car and see the results in comparison.
