I'd got my pb down to 14.065 before last weekend at Shakey for OS8.

I didn't stop for tickets, so I didn't know what any of the times were until I'd finished for the day.

First run seemed to bog off the line but wasn't horrendous. Ended up being a 14.1 which I was happy with.
Second run I gave it some more - too much and spun like mad.
My third run of the day, I managed to beat my pb by a huge margin - 14.058 ! A massive 7 thousandths of a second quicker.
I followed that by another spin off the line which ended up going nowhere fast.
I almost parked up at that point, but decided to give it one more go.
Didn't spin this time, but it only felt average so I thought it ended up being a waste of time after all.

However, I parked up and got back to Karen who showed me a photo of the time.

13.969

Finally after all this time, I now have a 13 second time slip! Image

Yes, I normally drive it to work. It's the only car we've got so it gets used for everything.
