After being stuck at consistent 9.0x’s at ~160mph, Vlad — our Senior Performance Calibrator — hit his goal with his Quicksilver 1998 Toyota Supra this past weekend! The goal? 8-seconds, 6-speed, full-weight, street-driven. We’d say rowing gears to an 8.6902 at 168.41mph nailed it! With more power on the table, and plenty of fat to trim in the 60′, it looks like low-8-second passes are in the cards to come!
Update: Vlad has finished up the 10 point cage and parachute setup, installed his Tillett B5 seat, and dialed in the suspension just in time to make one of the last local events of the year. Still getting the car dialed in, he managed a new personal best of 8.49@170 right off the trailer. As a reminder 3.0 liter, OEM 6 speed trans and a Garrett GTX4508r.
