So there was a blue R 7.5 estate at Santa Pod last Saturday.
The car ran a 12.04 @ 110 mph.
The car has a R600 intake with Racingline supporting piping towards the turbo and stage 1 AMD remap with DSG.

So RWYB today at Santa Pod...
Was a great day. I think there were about 7 or 8 Rs...
Chatted to quite a few R owners.

I didn't get my my last run which was against another Stage 1 R. But got the previous 3.
First 2 was right lane.
3rd was left lane.
Did 4th run in left but no time unfortunately.
Experienced a bit of wheel hop for the first time on all 3 runs.IMG_20180929_175352.jpeg

It doesn’t look like this thread has been posted in for a while. Let’s resurrect it with a few dragy runs.

Here is my first ever dragy run on the stage 3 in my 7.5R DSG. This is a base map and so will be much quicker once finished. 😎

Took my MK 7 JB1 @ 5.3psi estate to Crail when I was in the central belt for the weekend and ran a 12.310 @ 114.2mph and was consistently in that area over 5 runs.  Car was running 1/2 tank of Tesco Momentum 99-Ron, ambient temperature was 12-14°C, front tires nearing indicators and I was carrying a full weekend away of running gear (i.e. weekend bag for 3 in boot at around 25kg and my son's balance bike and car seat)

 

8th fastest can on the day out of 144 and one of the quicker cars was another Golf R.  Good time/bad time?

New UK record at Santa Pod yesterday for a 7R running a 2litre engine.

 

Paul Beattie running TTE555 and MRC Software ran:

 

10.54secs @ 131.43mph.

 

Beat Dave Lee’s 3yr record by 0.0001.

 

Different game doing it at Pod over your favourite stretch of tarmac on a Dragy or V-Box.

 

Well done fella.

 

Regards

I got it down to 10.75secs in the end at Santa Pod but lack of grip was causing gearbox to throw a wobbly in 1st and 2nd, short shifting and changing up to early killing my times and mph at the end, still pretty swift for full blown road car with zero strip out.

 

Video of what it looks like on the speedo.
