Well, I competed in the Spring Enduro Auto-X Event up in White City, OR (Medford area). Had a blast, except that my Celica's turbo went out earlier that day (built about 1 psi per 1000rpm), so I didn't have the power that I should have, lol. The video is of a practice run I did the day before the race itself.

Usually you can stick in 2nd gear while autocrossing.

Yeah, because I had no power (turbo wasn't boosting) I didn't have to get out of second gear, lol.

Yeah I was trying to figure that out too.

I saw a first shift, and then that's it. Should look into may be a windscreen for the camera, then we could hear the car over the wind noise.

Everything else was from back in my novice days. I can post up MaxQData logs if that's useful to anyone.

PS: run after that is when one of the headgaskets blew up.

PPS: 1st time driving the car. Still pwned the owner of the car.

You could always race a miata or a CRX. Parts are super cheap and they're relatively competitive.

A gopro... I want.....

Gotta fix the 88 first. damn.

You had nice lines though. Good job man. I'm hoping I get the 88 done in time for at least the end of this season so I can get out there with her.

Just been using the scion.
