Hi guys,

I just thought I'd share some photos of the 4Gtuner drag day down here in AUSTRALIA / VICTORIA.

Enjoy the pics of the day!

I finally took my VR4 out for the first time and had a chance to test my car!

I started the day with a 14.4 with a 4 sec 60 fter. I basically rolled over the line and waited for a friend to fang it before I gave it some gas. While I was waiting for him, he was waiting for me!! Anyway, I managed a 14.4 @ 128mph. The track we were at is known to have a dodgey timer/clock on the right lane so I didn't think much of it.

The 2nd run, I had a few issues with missfiring so the next 3 or so runs was basically me logging and trying to suss out the problem.

By the 6th run I knew it was not tune related and decided to change out the plugs as I had previously installed some new plugs gapped to approx 1mm. I am running an M&W Pro 14 CDI so I thought 1mm would be ok but I guess not! Anyway, I swapped out the plugs to standard 8 heatrange plugs with a .8mm gap and the missfire had completely vanished!!

So the 6th run, I attempted to launch the thing and I failed miserably! (being the first time I have really ever tried to launch) As I returned to the pits I was greeted by the news of running a 12.7 @ 130mph! So off I go again for another run! The times started to drop from high 11's down to 11.08 @ 132 mph with a 1.89 60fter. I believe I'm short shifting 2nd as the wheel spin is making it hard for me to judge as the shift light just flashes like a christmas tree!

So the end of the day I think an easy 10 is in the cards.

This was run with my run in tune on low boost. It was just good to be able to go out and have fun in the car again! The last time I raced it I had a pb of [email protected]!!!! That was on a 23g and stock motor.

Enjoy the pics of the day!

Freaking awesome time and nice pics too. All the cars look good. It's likely a case of wanting what I can't have but I pretty much want all of them, especially the Supra.

I'd say your Sig can be updated too - to one of Australia's Fastest VR4's...

Whoa, those are some high quality photos!!! Car p0rn for all of us "Yanks."

Your car looks fast sitting still on the gold mesh's. They look like some BBS, but what model?

P.S. nice timeslips, looking forward to the 10 second 1360 pass.

Dang, wish my drag strip had drag days and a freaking scoreboard!

I didn't know Jean Reno liked VR4s!
