Default A lap at California Speedway last weekend in the 1UZ Corolla

I know looks like a Corolla--but it is really as much SC400 as anything. For those not familiar with the car, go here for the build log: http://www.cardomain.com/ride/229209...oyota-corolla/

First a couple of pics:

That Cobra did not survive the day--broken shifter and straight off at the button hook. No other damage though. Luckily, I survived with no problems.

I have to put a disclaimer on the video: my fuel map over 5000 RPM or over 7 PSI of boost was so rich it was like hitting a rev limiter at either of those points. The boost limit was really frustrating because I had to really feather the throttle, and I could NEVER go to full throttle. Also, I was running crappy brake pads that were not up to the task, so stopping after a few brake zones became really scary. But even with these limitations, I was still holding the car back. Each lap in this session was two seconds faster than the last: 2:17, 2:15, 2:13, and 2:11. The one in this video was the fastest one.

All in all, I had a blast. I highly recommend going to a track event, it is totally worth the money and the only way to REALLY know what you and your car can do.
