As there have been a few delays getting the starlet, i thought i'd go back to Crail to give the car one more blast before she goes at the start of next week!
It was a nice hot sticky afternoon, so i thought i'd go for broke, warm the tyres up with some smoking action etc!

My previous best was a 14.9 quarter at 90 odd MPH, but this time my first run of the day was a 14.7, and my next run after that was a 14.4 at about 100 i think, my speedo showed 105 but its not entirely accurate! I think I may have been the fastest relatively standard GTS-T R33 there!

I am starting to wonder why i'm getting rid of it, I really am starting to get the skyline bug! If money wasnt so tight!!
The J-tuner guys were also there, but didnt really do much or speak to anyone, looked like they couldnt be arsed if I was being completely honest!!

I will have to do some work to the starlet to get 1/4 mile times like this I think!!:clap:

Yet another poor day at Crail for me yesterday.

My idea of taking the exhaust out the front of the car has made traction issues even worse. The technique I used at USSC in which I bogged the car off the line no longer works as there is no lag from the turbo what so ever anymore...never mind.

For some reason, I had serious issues with bad wheel hop about 100 yards down track in the right lane and on the third attempt in the right lane, the n/s driveshaft had had enough, and decided to shear in two then depart the vehicle all together.

Oh well, I think I will call it a day until I get some bigger tyres and proper front suspension as I am just wasting my time at the moment.

Cheers

Dave
