Quick Shifting vs. Powershifting
BEFORE YOU COMMENT : -The purpose of this video is only to show the difference between quick shifting and powershifting. -Constructive comments are welcome. -Stop whining about the shape of the transmission. I don't drive like that all day everyday, and it still shifts like butter (must be done properly though). -Whining about the position of my hand on the steering wheel is also irrelevant. I usually drive with both hands on it, but during the making of the video I happened to let one hand on the shifter because I felt like it (multiple shifts on a short time). -Thanks for watching and let the VTEC kick in, yo ! VIDEO DESCRIPTION: Quick lifted shifts vs full throttle powershifts. Powershifting means that you never leave your foot off the gas while shifting. Also added some rev matching near the end.
T1 Race Development: The Quest for Sevens
For 2012, the notorious 8-second T1 Drag Integra has undergone a thorough re-engineering of the entire turbo system, suspension, and chassis in an effort to make history and break the 7-second barrier in the quarter-mile. The design, fabrication, and tuning was done at T1 Race Development in Rowlett, Texas by Tony Palo, crew chief Michael Morris, Matt Owen, and Aaron Nelson. The full uni-body Acura Integra is powered by a heavily Boosted and strengthened B18C1 built by Watt's Shop, and is fed by Injector Dynamics ID2000 fuel injectors with E98 racing fuel. The engine utilizes T1-spec Web Camshafts in an RLZ Cylinder Head. The turbo is mounted to a Full-Race 'Outlaw' manifold. Engine management is handled by Motec M800, with a T1 Spec Race harness. It retains the standard H-pattern transmission, full-glass, dash, steel doors, and cromoly cage. Weight savings has been enhanced with lightweight Kevlar front fenders & front bumper, Seibon carbon fiber hood & rear hatch. A set of Drive Shaft Shop axles get the power to the ground. Piloted by Tony Palo, the T1 Integra has run a best e.t. of 8.38, and a best mph of 186 in the quarter mile. It was the first FWD Street Car to run 8's...and the quest to be the first in the 7's has begun. Stay tuned for results and visit T1racedevelopment.com on the web and on Facebook for updates.
