BWA member Trevor ran a PB time of 13.0318 in his bus ("The hot wheels bus") last weekend at the Big Bang!! There's got to be a 12 second quarter on the cards!! ;-)

Well done fella!

Yea, I only saw one of his run's and he seemed to be having traction issues etc. with the back end. With a little bit more "setting up" I think they are both gonna hit the 12's!! 8O

Well done Trev! People don't realise how hard it is to run a 13 let alone 15,16 etc and to run a 12 in a street driven bus is awesome I'm sure he will be in the 12s very soon.
