Heres the story since many of you were curious. Keep in mind, it was my first time to run at a track..
ON THE WAY TO THE TRACK:
A manual single turbo supra and I went up to the track together, and it was the most badass experience ever. We were cruisin along and I had my friend video tape. We got to see the supra race a new 05' GT mustang. They raced from about 70 to 130 mph. The supra won by about a car length (the supra had to switch lanes several times due to traffic, the gt had his own lane with no cars ahead of him). Then I get a phone call a little later and he tells me "Hey what does it look like behind you?" And I look in my rear view Mirror
and theres a turbo audi and a 3000gt speeding up fast. The 3000gt speeds up to the supra which was in front of me and and gets even with him. They both downshift at about the same time, and the supra stomps his ass. After that the two cars sped away. Meanwhile, my friend and I were kinda bored of just cruisin with a Turbo 94' Supra, so my friend tells me " Hey go up to him dude I want you to race him!"
. So im like why not? So I get even with him and honk three times. We both downshift at the same time and I was even with him for about 1/8 of a second and then we hear the turbo kick in...and within a matter of seconds he is 5 car lengths ahead of me
AT THE TRACK:
I watched the supra run 4 times. His tires kept slippin so hes getting new ones. His best time was a 13.5 in the 1/4.
Me in my Auto 2002 GTS Celica ran twice and then stopped cause it was useless to do it again
. My car is slooooowwww.
My first run:
I get staged and see the lights go down (3 yellows then a green). I, being my first time, get a bad launch. I hesitated, let go of the brake at the 3rd yellow light and was afraid that I would get a red light, so by the time it turned green I hadnt had my foot on the gas yet. Then after .8 seconds of delay, I gun it
. I had it in auto mode and only got to about 5,000 rpms in 3rd gear by the time I was through. Now heres the sad part...I had to race a professional drag 70s mustang. My digital camera wont focus good enough to take a pic of the timeslip so ill type it:
My second run:
I had a decent launch, delaying less time. This time i put it in Manual mode. For a second, right before lift, my tires spun for a second. Heres the timeslip:
