    No idea if harrop has a proper cell or not.

    One I've been in is incredible, once that room is sealed the vacuum from the rear extractor is insane air speed blows your t-shirt even without the front dyno fan turned on.

    It is basically the same as road conditions in terms of air flow around, beside, under and over the car.
    True that.
    Ive had the pleasure of taking a few engines to Kim Baker in Molong NSW and his Engine Dyno set up is mazing

    That is one very nice motor vehicle. If I had some spare $$$ I'd have bought one. Make sure you enjoy it and don't just park it up.

    Question without notice - Anyone who owns a W1 - do you have any problems getting off the line in a drag situation, starting from 1st then to 2nd and 3rd..

    Reason - I was with someone today who owns a W1 and he mention this issue to me after we had a run together, I myself run a auto and my third pulled alot harder than his.

    Just another question does the W1 come with Launch Control (Manual Transmission only) and if yes, has anyone tried it that owns a W1.

    Just a note for W1 owners - be aware that there are potential coolant leaks on W1's - HSV are aware of them ( and have been for weeks) - and formulating a fix apparently - but first acted dumb on enquiry. I think its a bit wrong of them to not notify owners to change clamps in the interim like I have done - only to discover when doing so another leak from the supercharging cooling system in the front bar ! Keep an eye out - I noticed the leak moving the car ! Bit disappointed
