1/4 Mile @ Tarlton 2 Nov - Vids added

Postby fuzz123 » Thu Nov 08, 2012 4:40 pm

I went to Tarlton on Friday the 2nd Nov to see how my S14 does on the 1/4 mile. I was skeptical at first cause I had a lot of negative feedback of of my dyno graphs that the turbo kicks in way too late etc.
Thought I'd first try low boost just to get things going and did a decent 14.9 After that the adrenalin kicked in with an addiction factor and I did a lot of runs on high boost(1bar) most of my runs I did in the 14.2x time frame with some reaching the 14.1x's. I know its not the fastest around but was a heluva lot of fun leaving most of the tuned up golofs in the dust and with my daily driving car on street tyres.

On a side note: Saw a S13 coming in and thought I wasnt going to be the only 200sx running for the night but unfortunately he didnt run.

Fun night out, maybe next time some of the club people can also come through.

For sure man!! 14.8 aint that bad for the first time, with a bit of practice you will do good!!

i got exit speeds in the region of 160-170km/h...I would love to go and do it with some semi's though, cause the tyres I had on are worthless!
