not sure, if you email the manufacturer, they can tell you their recommended gap size.

Just put her on weigh bridge 1040kg (approx 20kilos of fuel) + 140 for me and passenger on track = 1180 kilos 

0-60 mph is me and car so that will be just shy 1105 less some fuel about 15kilos after track sesion. = 1090 kg

Aiming for 8.5 sec 0-60 depending on wind but will be happy with sub 9 secs off course got to get launch right :)
