What worries me more is whether Zed will let me paint it orange and stick the confederate flag on the roof :lol:

Then I keep an eye on V8 Mustangs because for an extra £10k I can supercharge one to 670bhp, but they’re not dropping in price to the ‘magic’ £15k I have in my mind to be able to say I spent less than £30k for silly horsepower :D

Needs more than just the charger plus fitting. Not sure if for a used charger either...

The class system is massively complex, but I had a look through and there's a few classes that haven't had a 200mph record set yet, and the class that caught my eye was I/BGALT, for which the current record is 144.032mph set in 2016. I = 46 - 61.99 cubic inches (754cc - 1015cc), B = Blown (Supercharger or Turbo), G = gas (petrol rather than nitromethane etc.) ALT = Altered Coupe. This class doesn't allow any major streamlining other than removal of mirrors/radio antennas etc., all of which got me thinking: what would I build to get me that record?
Not sure about getting to the 200, but the 144mph current record doesn't seem particularly unattainable as these things go.

I'll see you there when I strap a truck turbo and some moon disks onto the fiat 850. It's not very aerodynamic, but has a tiny frontal area 😂
Cheers, Harry

Don’t you need twice the power to get the same speed when driving on salt/sand?
How about not having a sig at all?

I also get occasional urges to see what MG ZSs are doing. Apparently people are expecting £3k for cleanish ones.

I prefer the earlier ones though, the later ones look rank.

Reviewed very well at the time as I recall, dynamically at least.
Colleague had a 2.5 ZS180.

Made a good noise and yes - handling very tidy. They are set up pretty stiff.

No. Salt flats are nothing like sand. The biggest problem is traction, because there’s very little grip, or breaking through the crust.
