    joshiroku's 1uz ae86 hits the track!!

    this is from the NASA event held at msr-h in houston texas on 1/30/31 i thought id share some pics and video from the event

    this was the first real track test of the car since i finished it and man i am stoked on its performance for sure!!
    it was cold balls at the track this weekend so conditions werent as favorable as we would have liked but there was alot of action out on the track.

    there were no transponders available so all times were recorded via a stopwatch, which is super ***** since they dont track your every lap

    im in time trials, which is filled with badass rides...modified porsches,vettes,bmw..ect

    my best recorded time of the weekend was a 1.53.3 which was a pretty awesome time for my first track outing and considering the 195/55/15 tires im running..this put me 4 sec behind some super sick ass fully gutted cars on hoosiers.
    stickier tires and some aero (on the way!!!) and ill definately close the gap

    the car did great and i didnt have to turn any wrenches, and i drove the piss out of it on both days
    look forward to more updates as the season moves forward

    the tow rig (not mine)

    my hotel for the weekend

    the paddock



    the track
