Want to run the one lap in 2003. Any tips on how to prep a 6 speed TT.
I'm no Supra expert but I do road race and you might want to check with other Supra road racers on the FMIC. Cooling might be an issue on a road course with the FMIC especially since you'll be driving the car hard for the one lap. If you do run the one lap, good luck, it's something I'd love to do one day as well.Originally posted by NakSuKow:

Hey, I don't understand sometimes, how do you place, if your just driving 90mph in some places? Plus is the race legal?Roelof said:I drove the One Lap in 1995. My co pilot was Sunil Pai. We ended up at 11th place overall. We ran stock Turbo's a larger intercooler and a extra oil cooler. Stock brakes, SS Brakelines and Castroll SRF. G-Force ECU, no boost controller.
It was a blast. Make sure you take the following with you:
Valantine One Radar Detector
A good CB Radio
A bearcat Scanner
A pillow (To sleep while co-pilot is driving) and blanket
Extra Brake fluid and a vacum pump
Tire pressure gauge
First aid kit
We started in Detroit that year. My favorate tracks are Road America (WI), Heartland Park (Topeca Kansas) and Watgens Glenn (NewYork). I remember driving through Altanta at 1:00 am with a police escort doing 90 Mph.... very cool. Be carefull, not all states are as receptive of the One Lap. Also, The State police has been informed about your route. That is why you need the CB and Radar. The CB proved to be a great tool and the truckers will tell you where the Cops (Bear in CB Land) are. We had to make pictures at the different Hooters... They where sponsering the event and where our checkpoints as well. Enjoy, I'm considering going again. Maybe I will see you there.
