    It axle tramps pretty hard with these tyres, the launch will be tricky!

    Going to Sydney Dragway, if anyone else happens to be going and can take a video that'd be appreciated. Can get a pit crew pass as long as they don't require other people to show up at the exact same time.

    This was my best run (left lane)
    Data logs show max boost of 8.5psi. I'll have to give it some more.

    Yeah, apparently making the engine mounts more solid should help with axle tramp..

    I've already put poly bushes in everywhere, will sikaflex the engine mounts.

    Also I went on the scales, it weighs 1015kg, still with the spare tyre and 35L in the tank.

    Powerflex make poly engine mounts for the xc barina. Sure they would make for sb. I have a front mount on a xc from powerflex and it is well made

    That's a bit extreme! Guess they'll be more solid than filled originals, but I don't want it to be too harsh.

    Might have to get a short shifter, looks good and not too expensive.

    Have a spare set of engine mounts I've filled with Sikaflex, waiting for it to cure.
