Track Day Tercel!

Post by YakSr5 » Sat Oct 19, 2019 1:45 am

I took my car around Oregon Raceway Parks Road course. The car did very well and i wasnt the slowest out there. It is a very technical track and i know it very well, got around a few inexperienced drivers in faster cars.

that looks like a blast. Roof rack and all? might have shaved a few seconds off if you removed it. was it in a class, or just a fun day at the track?

what mod are you running, engine and suspension?

It was just a fun day at the track. the car is so slow, i wasnt worried about the roof rack lol.

I normaly drive a Trans Am 5spd around the same track. This was just an all Toyota event.

The car is a 1985 motor is stock, deleted cat and polyurethane control arm and sway bar bushings.new balljoints. The front has blown struts, and spring spacers air shocks in the back. 205 75 15's on escort wheels.

car handles well and was tail happy.

It has driven hundreds of miles to and from three gambler 500 events. (1500 miles off road)

Driving to and from a track day under its belt too, ive made some epic memories in this car

It will get a rebuilt cammed 4ac i have stored when the 3ac gives up. it still runs well.

Hey all,

YakSr5 has shared some in the past, but I wanted to link his grassroots page. It gives the backstory and a lot of great pics and history
