I can try and bring my beast... but i want to adjust my valves before i go. We will see. If i do come i can't push it hard. You won't see anything spectacular. If i come i will search out the supra's when i walk arround.

i was planning on racing but i have not got anything done since last time. Im still waiting for my taller tires to arrive so I can go through the traps in 4th. I may go just because the track condition will be better then before. anthing better then a 2.37 60' might just get me a 12.

short shift, bah. take it to redline. shim the wastegate so it will hold more boost in the upper rpm and take some weight off. Last time I was there on the stock trubo I cranked my boost controller up so boost would spike to 17 on the street rpm but would drop to 13 psi by 6000 rpm. this way in 1st and 2nd boost hit around 13 and once i got to 3rd and 4th the rpms were so high that I was only seeing 13psi after a shift. boost would only hit as high as 13 during the run. thats how i hit 107mph on the stock ct.

It better not rain. I purposely rushed to measure my valve shims then re-assemble my valve covers and what not just to go.

See u there if it doesn't rain

I pulled 2 runs on the 1/4 mile. 1st time ever to personally go down a track, and 1st time for the car as well. I pulled a 15.8 and then a 15.7, Third attempt i didn't even make it 15 feet from the tree before my Diff U-Joint gave out. Apparently they found needle bearings all over so... its definately the U Joint.

I will be inspecting the dammage soon then having the rear U joing upgraded as the OEM MX73 one is obviously not up to the task. The front slipyoke& U joint is from a turbo supra for a R154 so it held up, but i might upgrade that as well.
