1/4 Mile again... this time with video

Postby Sleeka_89 » Thu Oct 26, 2006 7:29 am

I thought i'd take the celica down for another run last night, see if i can get my 12 second pass. It didnt happen though... :(
Best time was 13.08 at 110mph with a 2.197 60 foot time. The track wasnt prepped the best but that was mainly because 2 cars spilled fluids everywhere that night. I'm gonna go down this sunday because theres a big comp on and hopefully i can get more traction with a better prepped track. Anywho hes some footage of the run :D

Man, replace those pimp wheels with some slicks! :P
When in doubt - increase boost.

hahaha yeah its not so much the tyres (there only kumo estas 215/45 r17 though) but its the open diff gearbox that kills me. Every now and then during a burnout it will spin two but it will always only do a single pegger launch :x
Normally on the drag strip i try to launch at 3500rpm but feather it a little bit so it doesnt bog down. It normally gets off the mark pretty well but its when i snap second gear that it hurts my time. I smash it abit too hard and it just spins, if i was more gentle i might of done abit better. Oh well thats what this saturday is for, the track is gonna be prepped for 9 second cars so it should be sticky :D
The main reason i'm not running slicks (even though i've got a spare set of rims in the garage) is theres a magazine here called HPI that lists the top 10 street driven FWD, RWD and AWD cars in Australia and i want to get a high twelve so my car can be apart of that FWD title but slicks arent allowed. Only if MR2 gearboxes werent so expensive :cry:

So its just bolt on stuff, the motor, head, injectors, and h/g is all stock (also got a walbro fuel pump)

yeah i would think mid to low 13, depending on the launch. When i used to have the ct26 i was running 15psi, everything else was the same and i did a 13.3
are you running a lsd mr2 box or a camry box?
