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 !
Wild Ford XR6 turbo!
Welcome back to the track Karman. After a 4 year absense the Ford XR6 turbo awoke first pass off the trailer. The
Falcon is still a full weight car with electric glass and factory interior.
Quickest pass for the day was an easy 9.0 at 151mph. The 4L turbo six is now using E85 fuel.
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!!!
