introducing myself


scion tcx

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Wow, what a wealth of good information on here, thank you!

 

I drive a 2006 Scion tC, with a fully built turbo motor, upgraded clutch, brakes and suspension. I am a beginner when it comes to technical driving/hard racing and I'm looking forward to some track time and learning a lot this year.

 

Thanks again for providing a "safe" environment to ask questions, share ideas and learn.

Well, I can't honestly imagine getting that good, but I intend to learn and practise, so who knows.. I don't think it will be my vehicle holding me back, at least.

I've sene a video of him driving. He needs some work (don't we all) but he is pretty fast for just getting into the sene over the last year. He is fully caged so it looks like his setup has a one up on you and probably has you beat in safety and Tires as well.

 

I wouldn't worry about beating him though, just go out there and learn. I only mentioned Rado b/c I know he is driving a raced out TC and is around your area.

 

Here is some info/footage for you off of H-T

I've watched him drive as well. He's been very helpful to me with advice for my car, and I will be using his TBC-1 boost controller soon as well.

 

Here is my video clip (doesn't show that much driving, sorry) from Time Attack two weeks ago. Chris was using scramble boost and pumped it up just a bit too far (24+ pounds on a stock motor!) on the final straight section of his third hot lap.

nice work with the clip.

 

I've heard those TC motors can hold their own. I thought about buying a TC and doing it up but then lost the itch after I heard about Honda Challenge Racing. I then started building my K20 civic.. .

 

Good luck with your tune.

 

I love boost too
