alright, i know in most cases chirping slows you down, but i've watched vids of "lucky" in particular and others, and the only way to land lift on the 1-2 shift is to chirp tires or slip clutch (of course with PFC this is not necessary due to higher rev limit). So the comment
"chirping is for birds NOT tires. if you're "chirping" the tires it means you're not driving right and you're slowing yourself down."
is not accurate when talking about celica's. Most people know if you land 2nd gear without chirping/spinning at 5800 before lift it will be much slower than landing 2nd gear at 6300 chirping the tires.
there's a difference between getin a bit of wheel spin and chirping. and in my car it happens only on the 1-2. except with dr's which I get 0 spin. I still land lift though. just not as high.
if you "chirp" the tires, 99% chance that your giving too much gas before releasing the clutch. If you land your 1-2 really solid on regular street tires and a not so grippy road, your tires will lose a lil traction and yes it does slow you down. you want to avoid it as much as humanly possible. you'll never hear my tires make a sound.
