Is there going to be a MR2 team this year?

Post by greeny »

As the title really chaps, is anyone organizing a team this year?

Is there any cars wanting to compete this year?

I would love to compete, but have absolutely no idea what the car will be like :lol:

Is it a case of getting to the strip and posting the results?

Yeah get to the strip and see what kind of et's you're running.

Take a look on the totb site to see what kind of times have been run in previous years.

There's also the handling track and top speed runs to go at. With all the track mr2's on here there should be a few that'd be quite competitive on the handling course.

Its a good event and it'd be better to see 13 second cars down the strip rather than the last year, where there wasn't any mr2's and the year before where there was only 1 mr2 competing, which was me :mrgreen:

Yeah, I've followed it for years, set up the suspension on my mate's S14 to get him right near the top of the handling results :lol:

I go to Pod most weekends, but this Sunday will be the GTiR's first outing. I'll get the 2 back together and get some times in March if all goes well.

Hmmn, well it appears I might have something running. :mrgreen:
It's a thought....

If we do who'd be in? There seems so few big power MR2s nowadays.

They all keep going pop or are temperamental beasts :mrgreen:

Would it not be better having a team with maybe more realistic power levels that can provide consistant performances?
That way there is greater attendance/support and looking at some of the results from last year there is diciplines where even a modest powered turbo could turn in a good result. :thumleft:

I do think some half decent drivers in decently tuned MR2s could do very well in the current TOTB. I wish some of the SuperGT lot would give it a go, but they're all into real racing. :clown:

But hoping to get it back soonish with over 500hp so will see...... I would like to see what its like down a 1/4 mile. Just never got round to it.

Anything happening with this? My MR2 is out & about with a T78 strapped to it, so just wondering whether or not to prioritise mapping it & getting to the strip or focus on my other projects!

Not enough hours in a day :(

I've entered, but not in the MR2 unfortunately, not enough hours in a day.

I'll be getting majorly whooped by all the 4wd monsters, but as I was going anyway, it wasn't much more expensive to pay the competitor entry fee, plus I'll have 2 days of major FUN 8)
