Did 5 runs. Started at 16s and improved each time as I started to get the concept and the last run was my best. My reaction times was quite poor as I was always fiddling in getting my staging right and the green light goes.

The car went well and the only issue I had was the excessive oil leak from the eshaft bearing which coated the ess with oil and I had some hesitation issues in 4th gear and slowed me down slightly as well.

Good news is that the oil leak from the supercharger was very minor and only a few drops of oil in the catch can.

I am now ready to get the car back to GT Auto to restore the tune as the timing was taken out and I am only getting around 170KW at the wheels at the moment.
