HSV Maloo R8 Vs Aurion 1/4 Mile
My Toyota Aurion Sportivo up against a Holden Maloo R8 at Calder Park
raceway on March 4 2011... It's not a surprise to see who won this race,
Aurion Sportivo@200kw and the Maloo R8@unknown kw... 317kw stock but it was
modified, unsure of the extent of the modifications though
TRD Aurion of Australia vs WRX STI 1/4 mile.
A guy at work kept going on at me to race him. He has a new WRX STI that he
paid $75,000 AUS for. He has spent $1600 ona cat back stainless steel Exhaust system. All I have done to the
TRD is after market mufflers and K&N filter. Total cost $850. Results speak
for themselves.......Yes I know he could have got his car up the 1/4 mile
quicker but a win is a win. I have more plans for my car with more Boost ( Std is only 7.5psi ) and an Intercooler. I left the traction
control on for all runs. 2nd run I had the traction control kick in and
lost me heaps of time and 3rd run not much better. My 1st time at the drags
so I was happy with result. I had 60 litres of fuel on board and tyre
pressures at the front too high. Could have dropped a couple of
tenths...................Next time !
XR6T vs Commie SV8
At poercruise 2011 at Eastern Creek, down the main straight in my XR6T ute
having a little run with a VY SV8, think its got a massive cam in it.
He started going a little before me and then i did kinda start pulling him
in a little bit but was a great run and that SV8 had some BALLS!!!
FG XR6 Turbo 0-200
FG XR6 turbo 0-200. Factory standard.
Rolling on factory 19" rims, Toyo T1R. Brand new tyres, so grip is
fantastic. Usually it would wheelspin to 60, stuffing up the gear change,
but this time it was nice and smooth.
0-100: 4.9 seconds
0-200: 16.1 seconds
80-120: 2.5 seconds
Eased off a little after 200, was contemplating going to the 240 limiter
but the private racetrack had a corner coming up so I canned that idea.
Can't wait to start modding it.
