maybe the pump hasn't been timed properly. Running properly the car's good for 122mph/4900rpm :L

In yer dreams :woot:

I can just about get that from my 2.0 petrol but you'll be lucky to get a genuine 110mph from a Mk1 TD, and I've had a couple :D

LOL. Is the picture blurred because your camera hand was shaking or was the engine vibrating the car to bits :D

I notice the car was heavy with a near full tank. You should have tried it closer to empty and you might have seen 125 on the speedo ;)

I'd hardly consider 122mph flying. And there aren't any speed cameras on my private race track :L

You're quite right. My bad...I despise speeding and all other traffic violations, with a passion.
