That would be called detonation, on that run. Nothing to do with a break in period, just us exploring the performance of the vehicles at different temperatures and heat soak periods to see the effects of intercooler system efficiencies when heat soaked etc. we are just establishing where the limitations may be before we explore extreme power levels. its all about understanding what the production set up is capable of before pushing it to where we wish to be with these cars. First notes are the intercooler efficiency differences between this set up and the CTSV, inlet depression, obviously exhaust system backpressure, etc.
