Cooma 1000m Sprint 2014

Posted on

November 22nd of 2014 was the 3rd running of the Snowy Mountains 1000m event – http://snowymountains1000.com.au/.

This event is to see who is the fastest (and has the highest top speed) from a standing start over a 1000m (1km) airport runway in an regional Australian town (Cooma, NSW – close to 1000m altitude). No race fuels, no nitrous, and only on street radial tyres.

This year the event was even better for my car, no ignition or major boost issues, I had a tune on e85 with some adjusted cam tuning, new tyres and the new turbo setup. More details on my build can be found HERE.

Toyota FT-1 Concept – 2nd Version Released

Posted on

The 2nd version of the Toyota FT-1 concept car was released by Calty Design Center earlier in the week. It seems the only differences here is the Graphite exterior colour and re-done saddle leather interior. I’m bias as I love Grey, but damn it looks good!

I can only hope that they don’t change it too much, name it a Supra and release it into production within the next few years, come on Toyota!

Hopefully the partnership with BMW brings an I6 back, along with other chassis improvements but I’m hoping it’s not a hybrid 4cyl like some autosites have reported – only time will tell.
