Had my final mapping session last night, thankfully she held together!! Thanks Jason, a job well done!
Power seems good, unfortunately couldn\'t get to the boost level that I was hoping for, ran out of flow from the turbo\'s!

It\'s a bit of a shame that some of the larger power RX7\'s arent involved, as all other makes and models are out in force.......again!

Hope to see a few of you up on Sunday to see myself and Tony  running!

It looks like a fairly impressive turnout from some of the supras, skylines and evo\'s claiming iro 1000BHP!!!

Unfortunately because of a certain rotary specialist I will be missing my 2nd TOTB but will be ready for next season for sure.

What power are you running if they have run out of steam?

I have had a tow bar fitted on a veichle and may bring both RX\'s up to showcase specialist work that has been carried out, as so many people are asking how the cars are.

She won\'t see a dyno this side of totb, so its down to the butt dyno, which seems fair to middlin

Will have to see how the 1/4 turn out, unfortunately I am only running stock street so3\'s so it may have a less impressive launch.
They are the same tyres I ran last year with a 13.2 and stock twins turbo\'s and an un-ported engine. So am very keen to see what improvement I get after the last year of blood sweat and tears getting it to todays spec:rolleyes:

Also have a fairly harsh Drag diff in it, which doesn\'t like corners much so the handling circuit may prove challanging :p

If your running your twin non seq, you should be close to 10 sec. Its got to be better than the singles running at the mo.
Cant you put some decent rubber on?

The tuning fund is very depleted at the moment, will have to go for tyres next time

I recon the only way my car will be in the 10\'s on sunday is if we tether it to the back of a skyline:)

Best of luck to you Chris, hope you can get some good times :cool  Will be supporting from the sidelines, although I have a few cars to cheer on this year :)


I managed to cancel my tyres otherwise I would have taken them down for you, might be worth asking in case anyone has R rated tyres kicking around they would let you borrow for the day?

What boost did you end up with?  considered running a very small shot of nitrous to help?


I\'m still not speaking to my car for letting me down :mad: it\'s just lucky I didn\'t have a box of matches with me when I last saw it :eek:

They are very similar! I was wanting to settle the sad situation with not much agro but as each day passes that becomes harder. Very much like you did with Geoff. I did think about bringing my car to TOTB but as it is I am missing some stuff to even allow me to drive it!!
