As far as i know the fastest recorded top speed for a Chimaera is 156 at Vmax which is a rolling start onto a 2 mile straight.

This weekend I took my car to a TVRCC event called the Big Northern Gathering at Sherburn Aerodrome.
All we had was a standing start to a braking point set about 0.8 mile.

On my first run i saw 149 on the Tomtom running NA.

On the second run with a tickle of a 50 shot i saw 152.
I had a young passenger in the car and he filmed this.....

Later in the afternoon i ran a 70 shot all the way and saw 158 well before the braking point and touching 6000 rpm in 5th.

The car had only done 40 miles on the recent engine build before travelling to Sherburn so I am relieved as well as chuffed it held out and performed.

A longer diff, a little more gas and Vmax at Bruntinthorpe are on the cards. Who knows how fast :twisted:

Yeah ive weighed up the numbers.
Reckon on a half decent surface could do 0-160 in about 25 seconds with still a modest amount of the good stuff.
I think the 2 stages with 100 + 50 would be more than enough :D
