Battle of the Imports 11/22/09

Well.. those of you that know me, know i’m really into making cars look good and go fast.. i’m not the type to build a car completely for looks and just let it sit there stored away as a huge paper weight. Car has to move, use all those performance parts to all their full potential … with that being said.. my track day at Fontana speedway for the Battle of the Imports was a lack of words FAIL day for me haha. I did not show full potential of the car that day. For some darn reason i couldn’t get used to the new set up with the HKS T51R kai turbo like i got used to the HKS T04Z turbo (which ran consistant 13’s with lower boost and hp).
RPM’s felt off, timing of my shifting bleh. ugh. it was a messed up day . Best time i got was a 15.07 for the day. worst times i’ve ever gotten with the IS300.
I promise to do better next time and get real drag slicks of atleast drag radials for the next event the R888 just weren’t cutting it anymore either. I know i know .. sounds like a bunch of excuses but trust me i’m the hardest on myself about not showing the true potential of the car.

Also .. wanted to add that i went with my friend Ryan and his wife Lisa that brough out their MKIV Supra. Ryan had pretty decent passes till he got anxious on his 3rd run and dropped the clutch snapping his axle.
We all learn a little everytime we go to the track and just remember to do better next time.
Here’s some of the pics i took while in the pit and after my crappy runs being eliminated from the competition.
enjoy:

Here’s some pics from the event
stands were pretty full .. which surprised me .. overall good turn out.

in line waiting to race. Sorry don’t have too much coverage other than these .

i’ll finish with this pic of one of my fav cars Skyline R33. I believe this one had 1000whp. INSANE car.. loved it.
