Just a FYI for anyone interested in seeing the 2 fastest Toyota compacts on earth. ;)

Yup, breaking sound barriers ;)


I'll be there around 4ish, look for the usual blue pop up tent, feel free to toss some stuff under it.

Side note, I'd stay away from the paddock under the bleachers, I had about 4 different kids in their porshe 911's ignorantly block me in or park in a way that makes it stupid difficult to back in after a session. I'll probably be in the area behind the concrete berrier, much quieter there

Good Fun last night at TMP. I learned a lot about my car........namely how fast it is and that it NEEDS a LSD.

After riding in Trevs car I also realized I need much stiffer spring rates.

Back out in a few weeks.........

yup, fun night for sure, much better when you're there with people you know than flying solo. Your car is definitely fast, it was fun chasing down STI's and getting the point by

You will definitely benefit from proper spring rates and an LSD, I wouldn't be surprised if you could get down to a 1:26 with that set up

I learned 2 things sitting in your car...my tires are heat cycled out definitively and I need to start running proper track brake pads.

Looking forward to another track day

I think on a no mistakes unimpeded lap I can get the car to a 1.26 flat the way it sits. The session before I took you for a ride I ran a 27.0 and a FRS totally slowed me down through the last 3 corners before the main straight.......I would have sworn it was a 26.6 and there were definitely a few mistakes on that lap.

If the LSD and the stiffer spring rates are good for a second and a half a lap then that should put the car mid 1.24's Totally good enough for a Echo.

If I raised it up and really set it up for the track maybe faster but it has to be slammed.......just looks so good. :)

Can you guys make it for Friday August 10? Trevor, you can check out my Carbotech xp 8 pads. I have no complaints about them except for some noise when they have heat in them. I remember the xp10 being noisier then the xp8 on the street.

I will likely not be out again until 3rd or 4th Friday in August.

I've actually just ordered xp10's for the front. They will only be used to drive to and from the track plus track time and I'll have a separate set of rotors for them so I'm not worried about noise or rotor wear when cold. The HPS's will be my daily pads.

I also ordered a rotor flex hone to resurface the rotors as they are both glazed. Looking forward to some new stopping power

I can do Aug 17th or 24th as well.........

and I decided to just leave the Hawk Blues on the car.......I think stopping a 4500lb whatever on cold blues is much different than stopping a 1900lb Echo..........I bet my current combo just never wears out. :D

I will repost if my rotors disintegrate in 3 weeks. ;)

Just realised that I'm away on vacation the 24th. I'll be there on the 17th with some proper track pads and hopefully a proper race seat
