    Threw it on the rollers, the cams are lumpy as fuck, and never thought a 1UZ woud sound so tough



    Somewhere between Scott finishing the tune the cunt spat my flappers, clearly not 600hp rated... dissapointed






    Tue done, on 25psi on Caltex eflex, no gas, this is all it would show, didn't matter what he did, it would go any more, it's definatly making power, but dyno wont show it, has more left in it..

          This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.

                That has to be scary as hell in such a tiny car.

                  Pity development of the A34x isnt quite there yet, having to sacrifice 2 gears and lockup!

                    Yeah I own the orange one, it's a stocko one, 4k and 2spd Toyoglide I did up with my kids, it gets more thumbs up than the V8 one..

                    Yeah, the fact the car is not really legal or dong much street duty anymore makes it ok, still cruises fine at on the highway anyway

                      With the new engine/box combo, I took it to Warwick With OKE020 for a few runs at the 1/8th as I have never actually had a run at racing it since OKE020 got booted for the 9.60,

                      I didn't do overly well, gear change with old combo was about 5800ish and I kept short shifting out of habit when it wanted to change at 7200-7500ish, also my 60's were high 1.8-1.9's, Turns out my 4K convertor is about 2300-2400 at best, so not ideal at all, did a best of 111MPH though on a 1.8 with a 7.1 E.T then best E.T of 6.7 with a 1.7 @ 99MPH, I did also find myself lifting the throttle a few times trying to get my head to work with the new fasts

                        Then decided to do the QLD vs NSW Sydney Roll racing thing,



                        Took it to QR Roll racing a week before we went to Sydney for a little testing with the 50 shot of gas,









                        Apparently if you have the gas on, and pedal the fuck out of it turning the gas on and off it seems to break shit.... Broke the shit out of 1 piston, pulled head, replaced with another stock piston, put rod on backwards, put engine back together, discovered rod fuckup, removed it all again, flipped Rodney, repeat..





                        Took it to Sydney along with Guy Kings RB30 KE20, Golebys wagon and a few others, ran perfect, baked the tyres the entire track regardless of what I did so I just did skids, And Just for Chuck, Golebys wagon went 3rd place, last RWD car left, only to be outted by the 2 maatooks GTR's







                        Return trip, truck full of corolla goodness...

                          At some point I decided to get it back to Willowbank for a run, Plan was to do a couple of 60's until it felt good then send it, it was a really packed night so I decided just as I left the line that I would just stay in it for it's one and only pass, The car went 9.2 on a 1.6 60 with a another fucking short shift but did do 155MPH! which means the car 100% has an 8 sec pass in it, in fact, I got legit booted out with anger, I suppose I did have no other protection than a 1974 non retractable seatbelt...






                          So the rest of the time has been pretty much enjoying the car, cruising around to meets, Powercruise, Gave Lakeside a go as I had never been there, The car is now at a point where it just turns the tyres everywhere, so it's kinda interesting to drive...

                            So at this point, the car has a broken box, thinking maybe a down shift under load has done it, lesson learned to not to be doing that shit, also, it is a stock V8 gear set, who knows what kind of life it's had for the past 40 years, Plans are now to get a cage into the car and tech it, then do that 8! I'd ideally like to see that happen in the next 6 months....
