As many of you may know, TX2K9 or the Supra Nationals is coming up in 3 weeks. Last year I red lit during the semifinal rounds after being the #1 qualifier in a full class with a 9.8 @ 145mph, this year I'm coming with a vengeance!

The car is the same setup as last year, with only very few changes. Last year I had the stock JDM long block...this year I'm running 268 cams. Last year I was running on C16 with 1000cc injectors. This year I have switched to 1200s and Q16.

Also, I removed the A/C out of the car since it is never used and it will never be missed, that and few other small things have dropped total race weight 200lbs.
I am also doing a few cosmetic/functional changes. Here is a few pictures of the progress of the last 2 weeks or so…fast forwarding to today…I will be updating as progress continues :)

One of the best SC's. Keep at it. You'll get it back to kicking ass status before tx.

what did you do to make your wheels black? Paint? Powder coat? Got a spare set in route for the evo I want to do that too.
