    Ecotec makes all the torque!

    This is a stock Solstice tune with header and 3 inch exhaust, we were able to get a little bit more out of it and lean it out a bit more.

    Bwah ha ha Turbos don't have a great track record in Lemons, and they suck gas in a big way. With the current torque curve in a 2200 lb car it should be nearly unbeatable in Lemons.

    The Supra will be testing at a track day this Friday. Next weekend I'm running the Rd ATL race in our old MX3. If we can stay out of trouble it should be a contender.

    I like the bronze better than black wheels. The problem is that they're 9" wide and stick out past the bodywork. Fender Flares and an updated paint job will be done if the car runs well at the test day.

    Track day update: Road Atlanta 12-6-19. Video will be added when iMovie stops crashing on my laptop.

    Executive summary:
    1. The car drove onto the trailer under its own power after 5 sessions.
    2. Oil pressure (65psi hot at speed, 33 at idle) and coolant temps (180-190) remained steady all day.
    3. With a couple of clear laps during the final session it ran its fastest lap ever at RA: Hand-timed 1:43.9
    4. The cars weighs 2340 lb with no driver and the weight distribution is 50/50. Now I have to find a way to increase front grip!
    5. The transmission has a big gap between 2nd and 3rd gear that was not as evident with a torquey 6 cylinder.



    Video of the 4th session: Never got a clean lap.

    Looks quick. Time for a BMW gearbox to resolve those gearing issues.
