I'm gonna do a little more to my car (adjust clutch), and I'm gonna try out a little track time, to see what my car is made of. I will probably get my wings in Mobile, and move to Atmore's 1/4 mile after I learn to launch on a track. Are there any of you guys at either track? Sure would be nicve if I had a supra freind there.

Bill,

Glad to see somebody here is in Mobile. I'm gonna try to make it out this Friday, but I bet it will be next week. I got my clutch adjusted, and took it out to see if it was gonna slip anymore. It ran great, and pedal was right where I wanted it first try, but I promptly blew a line off my wastegate, so I gotta get that took care of.

Shoot me a PM, and tell me what I need to know about the Mobile track (never been). I need to know times, price, where to go, and anything else that may be helpful to a first timer. Maybe I should just come watch my first time, or watch a while before I do anything.

Well tonight is the night for my inexperienced old ass to make my first ever run through the 1/8 mile with my heavy slow almost stock 90 turbo. Maybe I'll line up beside a beast of a track car, and it won't be too embarrasing to get beat. I'd hate to line up against something I should beat, and experience make me look bad. I'm running strictly for times, and a starting point to encourage me to do something else to the car.

Well I'm no longer a virgin.........that's the good part!

I did just about what I expected, maybe a little slower. I just can't be satisfied with my results. I ran 2 runs, both pretty close to each other in times. Both runs, my car kinda choked coming out of first/into second, andthat killed my times a little. Anyway here goes...............


r/t..............+.1008
60 ft...........2.8951
330 ft.........7.5812
1/8th mile...10.596
mph............66.67

our track is 60ft short of a true 1/8th, and I did 9.9211 on it, the rest ofthe 1/8th is projected.

I will screw with few things & try once more.

Ya'll come on out to the track on Friday. Last week it was me and Bill. This week it will be me and my MKIII, and Jim from Satsuma with his MKIII, and hopefully Bill with his MKIV. Spread the word, and we will have weekly Supra gatherings at the track. I have never seen anybody else from Mobile with an MKIII on these forums

Hey terry I remember your beautiful car from a long time ago I have the black mkiv that had the blown turbo seals at the time. I got all that takin care of now and hopefully I will have my car back together in time to drive it to the track but I won't be able to make any passes this weekend. I ran into a bit of trouble getting everything here on time so I havea busy day ahead tomorrow, So we'll see, I should hopefully be out there though.

Terry, sounds like you were definitely at the same teack I was at. Did you see my one run around 10:30. My car was not quite running right, but I did run faster than last week. I did run 9.79. Can't wait to see what it will run when all goes well. I wanted to try to do a little more to it, and run again, but they just couldn't keep things rolling, so I went home.

Terry, Ya, I left right about 11:15

Bill, we missed you. My time was better, but was only boosting 4lbs. Changed a couple of parts before hand, and lost my bog, but did something to lose boost. That could be why my bog went away. Whatever I did gave me a lot more low end (I spun all the way through first), lost my bog, and lost some boost. I tried to work on it this morning, but rain chased me in. I can't wait to see what I will run when all goes well. Any advise on how to fid a boost leak????
