Going to Meremere Dragway tomorrow...to RACE!

Recommended Posts

So, it's my birthday tomorrow, and I want to go drag racing! I'm heading to Meremere Dragway with the family in the Legacy.

 

I'd like to take it down the track a few times...to have some fun with the family, and get a starting performance base before the fixes and modifications start.

 

Will I need a helmet? Will I have to prep the car to pass a safety inspection there? Being an automatic, what RPM should I launch with the foot brake, and at what RPM should I be shifting?

 

Also, is anyone else going? Do you want to meet up?

 

Thanks!

I will also post some pics, and timeslips for the day. Does anyone have a guess to what my best time will be for the day?

 

It's a bone stock '03 Legacy GT-B e-tune with 250k on it.

Considering you reckon it isn't quite working as it should and you hardly know the car I'll go with 15.5

Wow @Joker...thats a pretty specific guess! 

 

Let's get some bets going! For something from the forum merchendise? Or is that not allowed?

 

@Andy_Mac Hmm... 15.5... minutes?  ;)

@pedro I'm pretty comfortable around cars...and have been doing my own work for years. Now mix that with being a horsepower nut, and a "Crazy Canuck" (a typical Canadian)... hell ya! I'll take it for a rip!

Well, it's a late morning start...so I won't make it for 12pm cut off to race. Next time. Heading out now... I'll still get some pics.

Didn't get to the races yesterday. We got out late, decided to have lunch in Onehunga, which would have only given us 1.5 of race time...not worth the $25 entrance fee and $80 to race. So we walked around downtown Auckland, had a cider at Mezzier, my wife got injured by some idiot skateboarder that plowed through a group of us crossing at a traffic light(that's a whole other post), and ended up at the "Mexico" restaurant for dinner(which I highly recommend!). Great taquilla there! Had a great time!

      Hi Guys
       
      Changed the thermostat in my 2002 B4 Legacy this morning.
      Noticed bubbles coming from the overflow.
      The car isn't over heating, coolant isn't boiling, A/C blowing hot air as it should, Thermostat definitely opening, Oil clear and clean.
       
      Going to be replacing the radiator cap and bleeding the cooling system again with the front jacked up this time, did it on a hill the first time hoping it would have the same effect.
       
      Any other ideas of what it might be or things to try before considering the possibility that the head gasket randomly started leaking straight after putting a new working thermostat in?
       
      Thanks Guys.
