Towels first 1/4 mile run!

Postby WarTowels » Sat Jun 20, 2009 8:44 pm

Sorry this is a little less content than I would have liked. But I'm just too excited to wait.

I have videos, pictures, and time slips that I'll be posting.

Car Mods

1993 Celica Alltrac
215,000 Miles on stock** internals
50k approx on the clutch
Greddy td06 20g at anywhere from 10psi to 15psi. (boost creep)
Greddy downpipe
3" Exausht w/ HKS Silent Hi-Power
Cheap FMIC with 2.25" piping
ASI 50mm aluminum w/ 9" spal fan
Relocated battery.
Khumo super high performance streets tires, at 45psi on Celica GT-S 00+ rims
Full interior, 12" sub and amp.

QM Time on my last run was 13.65!

Not too shabby, pics and vids and time slip scan to come. Though my reaction time was god awful... the lights were really funky on the last run.

What problem? That it was running 10-15 PSI and did a mid 13?

Who cares about your reaction time, your not bracket racing it. The thing to worry about is your 60 ft.

Nice times BTW fer what it is.

Good times. Any reason you where running 45psi in the tires?

lol, yes. I meant stock. I was in a hurry.

My 60 foot was something like 1.6s? I think. I need to pull out my slip.

Thanks guys though, I'm pretty happy with the times given what I've done.

Quite frankly, I didn't know what I should run for optimal grip.

The max pressure on the tires is 51psi. So I thought 45 would be a nice happy medium.

"JDM" ecu (which kinda sucks) and yes, stock 440's.

Fuel, internals, all of that is 100% untouched.

Not bad man!! I ran 13.3 @ 102mph on almost the same setup. I'm sure you could shave some time off somehow.

I was on stock USDM ECU, injectors, fuel pump.
12psi on TD06. I had 9.0:1 compression pistons though. But my clutch was slipping and I had low compression in one cylinder.
Best GT-S STOCK times: 1/4: 14.788 @ 94.98mph 1/8: 9.640 @ 75.87mph
Best Alltrac times: 1/4: 12.2 @ 115mph 1/8th: 7.9 @ 91mph

that's a good time w/stock fuel, ecu & 16 yr old suspension + street tires.
you'll get better with more practice too.

what was your trap speed?

I personally would run a lower PSI in the tires but if it's working for you then keep it up. I would probably run around 25 to start and adjust from there.

Excuse the reaction time... I got some funky lights that round.

Don't feel bad about the reaction time.. I don't even try to launch right at the light. It doesn't mean a thing unless you are bracket racing.

That is an awesome 60' time!!! I've never gotten below 1.8. Guess I need some better tires because all I do is spin! Your trap speed looks a little low for 15psi. Overall not a bad run at all! Very respectable.

Well it's not "really" 15psi, it really depends on what the turbo feels like doing.

And if it ever gets up to 15 it's only for a bit. It's generally more around 11.

Thank you for the kind words.

My next mod is going to be an EBC hoping that will steady out my boost, I'll set it to 14psi and put my tires down to 25psi and see if I can shave a few tenths off.
