Outlaw Opel Omega STW, world's fastest megasquirted car ?

Completely self-made CrMo tube chassis, interior, electrics, rearend housing, suspension (except brakes, shocks and springs). The list of self-made components goes on and on...

First ever test run on the quartermile was 8.5secs / 158MPH (255 Km/h), with a fuel map that was total guesswork ! No engine dyno, nothing before the first run. Only idling and a few hundred yards of under-2000rpm cruising. The only concern when making a guesswork- fuelmap was to avoid going lean. And lucky for us, we were at 10-11 A/F ratio the whole time.

Best time was 8.4secs, that was the fourth test run ever with the motor and EFI. Then we discovered why the car didn't run any better : The alternator only charged with 11.5 volts during the run, which meant that the fuel pressure went down and the MSD 7 didn't give a good spark. That's why on that 8.4sec run the engine only revved up to just over 6000RPM.

Anyway, this was only a test/tuneup session in preparation for the next season. When we get the alternator issues sorted out and the engine will rev higher, we are looking at low-to-mid 7sec runs.

On the Finals last summer, finally broke in to the 7's with a 7.8sec / 173MPH (279KMH) quartermile run !

Here's a clip of a 7.8sec run : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gadoHYrtnCw
