heres a few pics of my rsm.. (not acurate times but handy to compare with other people who have them)
the 6.74secs was two months after i bought the car totally standard :D :D
and the 7.10 is with a apexi induction kit and cat back exhaust...proof upgrades lose you power without proper tuning a/f.....

I'll second that, lad i know bet a type r teg at bishopscourt in a 20v corolla, but he's possibly the most competitive person i know, the poor car was never the same......stripped it out for the day and trailered it up with just enough fuel in the tank for 1 run, gerry cans with more fuel :lol:

old discussion but...

I just ran twice 16.11 with my IS300 bone stock with open rear end (one wheel spinning through 1-st gear every time) and low octane fuel.
Also there was everything in trunk + sub + about 30+kg sound deadening mat.

I was hoping around 15.5 but that´s reality...
Must install my Supra LSD and get Apexi safc asap...
