Smaay, thats still a pretty good time considering how much that track sucks. LOL, My friend's IS300 E-Shift got a 17.7 there =), then I saw a stock RSX-S run a 17.2, a bone stock GT-S do a 16.1 and a nicely modded WRX do a 15.5-15.6 all night long.

Well today was another disapointment. Again in the final run I was killed. However, this time i killed myself. I had been running 15.7's all morning. And even a 15.6 so i dial in at 15.7. My first 2 runs i didnt break 16. so for my 3rd run i raise my dial in to 16.0. I ran a 16.09. So i figure the wind picked up, im a little slower. Anyways on the final run im racing a civic diald in at 17.6 So he gets his 1.6 seconds head start, then i get my green. about 200 feet from the finish i pass him up, so i back off the gas just in case i beat my dial in time. I win the race, but sure enough, I broke out. No trophy for me again!!!

Anyways i had a blast. Too bad I was the only 7th gen celica there. There was a 5th gen with a 22R in it. Look for my other post with pics of the Turbine Focus.

Altitude Correction
LACR is 2,710 ft. above sea level.
To figure the altitude factor the formula is as follows:
ET: multiply your et (at LACR) by .97
MPH: multiply your mph (at LACR) by 1.03
This will give you the ET & MPH at sea level.

given this info, my 15.6 corrected is actually a 15.1

Yup. but a few honda guys told me that running a 15.6 at lacr can drop as low as around a 14.8 at a good track. I don't know how accurate that is, but they ran at quite a few different tracks and seem to know what they are talkin about.

Not only is the track high, but the track is just plain crappy.

You might as well Race on Cambell Soup left overs. Youll get better traction than at LACR.
