well been to Shakey,I was a little dissapointed but on reflection it ain't bad,I got 17 secs terminating at 77mph,I got slaughtered on my first run by a 12 sec Skyline,2nd run I was beating a Volvo T5 until I hit third,he got 15.4 secs,third run was on my own,couldn't get below 17 secs....that damn long gap between 2nd and 3rd gear....lol
