My 71 1600 Wagon FJ20ET

Recommended Posts

in my position i have to remain neutral, it helps bring control the tension between the different areas.

f*%#, what a poor excuse, maybe i'll just shut up and crawl back in my hole

your hole has a name.......Penrith

So does yours, "insert here boys"

Yes I finally made it into the 12sec club! :yahoo:

Took it to wsid last night for a squirt after having it completely re-tuned by JEM a couple of weeks ago, was running about 15psi on street tyres, 1st run was 12.946 at 111mph, 2nd run 12.906 at 112mph, 3rd run 14.46 at 100mph (turned the boost down to 12psi), and 4th run 12.9?? at 116mph. I was not really too fussed on my reaction times just yet, I was focusing on just taking off at the right revs (that has always been my weak point I think), and after taking in some advice from Mark (DA75IN) and Jeff (SX510) my gear changes got better as the night went on also. From memory I think my 60ft times were about 2.4sec so I want to work on that next. My coach ;) has suggested that I let my tyre pressure down and get some more heat into them to prevent wheelspin, but in order to do that I really need to get the tramping problem fixed first to keep the wheels down.

So next I will be getting some tramp rods installed and the diff angled tweaked, practice taking off more to get my 60ft time down a bit more and give it another crack!

But all in all I am stoked to actually crack it into the 12's where it should be :D

Yep was a good night out nice and cool air no other datos where there unfortunately but alicia`s car got ALOT of attention from spectators and other competitors people where constantly comenting on the car which was good encouragement they where even more impressed when they found out it was totally owned and built by a lady!.

The cars got through faily quick, Im pretty happy with the way you went last night considering nerves and the handfull of times you have spent at the track.

As stated after some key pointers from the master himself (shoey and crew) and with a bit more practice the car will definatly do a low 12 without the use of slicks. Gear changes where smooth and the gear ratios is near perfect the car is running across the line at perfect revs The car makes max power at 6500 and went over the after some coaching at 6400ish.

well done looking forward to going back out there and doing it again!!

Well done Alicia, good mph too.

If you get the 60fters down to at least 2.0 then definitely low 12s.

This done on street tyres? Semis will get you there.

Top effort last night Alicia, I trust my tip about shaking knees worked for you ;)

Seriously, your passes were all very clean and consistent, with minimal duress applied to the FJ or the car (unlike

)

Martin - no videos unfortunately, Jeff was going to tape it but the batteries ran out on his camcorder. And it made 240kw on 19psi
