Something tells me adding a mid range turbocharger breaks the rules of this challenge.

 

But if it doesn't here is my best time. 1:06.817DSCF8719.JPG

Tuned up. Unless Bambaroo sets restrictions you can do whatever you like with the setup. :smileyhappy:

 

I haven't really tried the Zonda yet so I hope to post a time by Tuesday.

Been playing F1 2011 for the last 5 days. But had another bash at this time trial today :) Think you have a big advantage if your using a wheel with this car. Been working on my throttle management. So was able to drift a bit around some corners to stop the rear end spinning out.
