Hey guys thanks for the replys...
As far as holding the revs at 4500, I don't do that, I try and bounce the revs up and down a bit, but I guess I need more practice. I only made 5 passes the other nite, the track was pretty crowded for a Wednesday night. I guess I'm gonna have to pay closer attention to the tach. How much cool down time do you think I need. I do have to drive a good hour and 20 minutes to the track, then I start running almost imeadiately...think that may have any effect on things?
I do feel a bit better tonite, I went out to get a pack of smokes, and a guy in a Crysler Crossfire (not the SRT, just the regular one...has about the same power to weight ratio as a stock rex like mine) he pulled up on side of me, and we ended up running 4 or five times, and I beat him each run, we raced from a dead once, and the other times from a second gear roll. I think those cars run in the mid to high 14s, so beating him, made me feel a bit better about my car. I tell ya, it feels strong on the street, I guess I just need to admit, I suck with this car at the track, all the years going to the strip, I always had automatics except for one rear drive tacoma I had extensively modified. I did have a 92 Izuzu Impulse, turbo awd, but never had a chance to take it to the track.
Thanks guys...I'll definately repost after another track outing...hopefully with some better results...If I can grab a 14.80 time slip, I'll finally quit whinning about this...lol
