can't be!

1.2 nova's are 55bhp and even with being stripped out, wouldn't clock a 14.2!

They probably had 2.0 engine conversions from most probably the Calibra as that sounds about right for that sort of time

No way... 14.2 from a 1200cc Nova. Even stripped out I find that VERY hard to believe.

a 1200cc nova COULD NOT run a 14sec 1/4 mile,

there were starlet gt's and glanzas at the pod running 15ish second times so it just couldn't be possible

I know why those novas when that fast there was a really strong tail wind, and the nova had no engine :lol:

im not gonna say anymore on this i was there i saw it leeky was there he saw it.we were parked nest to the car for 2 hours we got a pretty good idea of what it was. btw he could lift up his car it wasnt heavy

one thing i learned from a rwyb is that we all go its jap it has to be faster than everything else thats just not true some of theses cars which u and i would laugh at were putting in serious times times to embarres most of us

Sorry it took so long for me to get on here.

Ed is right, the Nova was a mere 1.2 Spin but it was completely stripped apart from the dash and the front seats.

Although we didnt look under the hood the engine had a bang on 1.2ltr tone, an exhaust the size of a straw even under heavy revs didnt sound meaty at all.

Maybe he had a decat, maybe nitros which i didnt notice...but it looked and sounded 100% stock to me.

While they were waiting to do their run he and his mate were lifting the back off the car off the ground :blink:

He had tiny little alloys with pretty good tyres on them and was lighting them up which i think made a lot of diffrence.

I have no explaination really as to how me managed a 14.2 :crybaby:
