Behind the scenes with Top-Rpm Motorsport at the 2012 Sydney Jamboree
Performance Garage shadowed Craig Dyson and the Top Rpm Motorsport crew at the recent 2012 Sydney Jamboree to see what goes into running one of the world's fastest sport compact drag cars at a race meeting.
6.88 @ 186 mph MILOS PAVLOVIC - 2JZ CELICA (TEST DAY 27/03/2013)
The Top Rpm Motorsport team were out testing in time for the Sydney Jamboree, with workshop owner Mick having his first drive of the car. The team came out having to license the car and were happy with the first full pass being a backing off 6.88 @ 186 mph. This car runs in the Factory Xtreme class and was previously driven by Craig Dyson and gone as quick as mid 6's at 218mph+ so with more seat time im sure we'll see the times come down. http://www.facebook.com/toprpm.motorsport Check the team transcript from their facebook page: Well Top-rpm Motor Sport went testing today with me driving for the first time, and what a drive.....MAD..... the weather was really bad spotting rain every 5 min, so it did not give us a chance to run the car to it's full potential. The first 1/2 pass was my nerve's getting the better of me, 2000hp and 2step is crazy when u are driving ( outside the car looks so easy ), i short shifted every gear and lets just say the clutch felt it, more rain come and we waited 1 hour to run again, this time full pass was required, i staged and bumped in on the 2 step ( something else was 2 stepping as well ), i launched and it just felt like a shaking blur, i short shifted 2nd, perfect 3rd, short 4th, then early back off, first full pass 6.88 @ 186mph... to say i am happy is an understatement so bring on Sydney Jamboree... Thank you to all my crew - Sezer Aktas,Andrew Becquetand chris, also thanks to all my sponsors - MOTUL / PWR / CP PISTONS / FABRE ... also a very special friend and brother Craig Dyson all i can say is u sold me a perfect perfect car that can battle it out with the best.. i love u brother.
