Possible record-breaking run: 9.328

"Barbaris" Celica from Greece. Of course, there's no timing board and they didn't show a slip. But I think it's plausible. There are tons of vids of this car doing quarter mile runs. So it obviously isn't some out of nowhere thing.

Hopefully some of our European members know of the car or have more info?

If it's legit... :notworthy:

Edit: Little more info http://www.6gc.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=69608&hl=

If true, pretty epic.

Wonder what Pat thinks of this? I kind of want to link it in his thread, but he'd probably think I was being an asshole :evil:

Not that the two cars are exactly comparable. I'd still consider Pat's car essentially a street car. He still has a lot of stock equipment, big brakes etc. This car is a much more dedicated track beast.

Anyway, I've had a suspicion for a while now that Pat has a few sub-10 second slips laying around for a special occasion. Maybe this will inspire him to dig one out. :D

Interesting that it still has power steering.

SUB 9?

Meaning an 8 second quarter mile...?

Last I checked he was in the 10's, that he posted.

Taking two seconds off would rather amazing...

Gah! You are right. Typing without thinking again. I meant sub-10. Pat's fast, but not THAT fast. :smokes:

Why would he think that? Pat's a cool guy. And competition is good for the Alltrac/GT-Four circle. We're a relatively small community, but also a very complacent one. We're content with OZ wheels, and RC parts as major mods. :?

I'm curious about Barbaris' gearbox. I think Pat's fear is shattering the gearbox. I say drive it like he stole it, damn it! :lol:

More like inspire all of us to get our tails off our couches and do something too. We're mostly spectators, watching Pat and the few fast ones running. It's time we all joined in and have some fun. (I know I am).

I am surprised how little response this thread has gotten. Someone should invite this guy over here. I am sure everyone is interested in his car. Even if his car is faster, Pat still holds the fastest stock gearbox record. LoL, now I sound like I am from the Supra forums.

yeah someone get the guy over here! damn i feel sorry for whoever this guy was racing. lol. they got so schooled. haha.
i agree with dan. i do as much as i can with the money/time i have. (hence my sig) i always dream of having parts just waiting to be put on. but school and life can be expensive. very very nice car though.
