    Atlanta Speedway....friday nights ;)

    Post  Kurai on Thu Jul 29, 2010 1:04 am

    Hey we all know that ATL is kinda far but was thinking if we ever got a saturday show up that way then we could stay near the speedway the night before and have a little fun here.........

    guess it happens every friday night there locally and is a drag event (1/8mi) and also a weekly car show Cool

    A few boosted Tercels from my other forums race up there. They say it's a lot of fun but it's not an organized event. No time boards nor tickets. Just line up and run. Here's a quote from somebody that went.

    well i went last night.. But i couldnt get my battery secured without getting more intercooler piping and rerouting. i even tried moving the battery to the trunk with a amplifier wire but it dint work like the power wasnt going through it or something lol ghetto i know. but i still drove out there and watched some retarded things race. there was four wheeler and go karts and dirt bikes. Another member with a 4efte paseo went and raced. But the track doesnt have a tree its just someone waving their hands. and no time board or time slips. its basically just a grudge match track. saw a couple engines pop and a rear end on a truck blow apart. all in all i had a good time but i think im going to a track a little farther north to get a time slips at so i can get a base line and start improving from there.

    thanks for all the luck wish i would have run it was killing me in the stands watching


    It does sound fun though for a group to roll up and play.

    I must agree with GA NOOB. It was the same way at HIN/NOPI. It was very unorganized and they require a helmet on an 1/8 mile track. I honestly think that is lame and the track is too short. Going to Rockingham, NC would be a much better event. You don't need a helmet unless you are 12seconds or better and its a quarter mile track with launch tree, time boards and time slips. Pinks All Out on speed channel race there. So we would have a blast if we all went there for some quarter mile fun. This is all a dream now for me since my engine seized up. I really didn't think bad gas and/or diesel could do that to an engine. Some how the gas that was put in my car seems to have caused my oil pump to work improperly and oil wasn't getting to my number 1 piston. When I removed the valve cover crystalized oil was all around valve one while the other 3 valves was nice and wet with oil. How could this have happened. Now Im in need of an engine and don't know where to go.

    Yeah a 1/4 would be alot better then a 1/8.....hey when you get your new 2az Mike look at getting a upgraded oil pump as well have heard this issue before with stock toyota engines of the pump being too inadequate for modded engines esp boosted ones....Circuit worx makes some for the 1zz and 2zz but not sure if they do for the 2az

    There is a track called Atlanta Dragway or something like that about 50 miles north east of Atlanta that I have run 1/4 mile passes on with tree and time boards.

    I think NC has a road course.. Don't quote me on it, but it may be a few hours drive. I can't remember where exactly. As a kid my dad's friends would talk about it.. It may have been just a place they would drive.
