*************************************Skip to about ^ to watch the Koupe
The Yaris is turbocharged and my brother's Koupe SX is going against a Saabaru!

ok my first and best run was a [email protected]:D with tcs off, using the paddles, and no burn-out. then a [email protected] and my brother did a [email protected] i tried to shift around 5,200-5,500rpms cuz ive noticed when i try to redline it a little, it shifts for itself when i shift too(1st gear, shift and then goes into third) does anyone else have this problem, and is there a way to correct it.

^ the car will shift automatically before it reaches red-line, nothin' you can do about it besides reprogramming the ECU. The Forte loses a bit of power close to red-line anyways, so you wanna shift it 700 rpm's before red-line. Sounds like you had fun though ;)

106 hp, 103 tq at the crank and I believe it was 92 whp, and 88 wtq.
66 whp gain is not bad IMO :shrug:

When I ran the 1/8th I ran two 10.5 runs, a couple 10.6's, a 10.7 run and one that was 11 flat (didn't burn all the water off from the water box lol, stupid rookie mistake)
looking forward to running it again this may (or sooner=])
getting wheels this week or early next week that already have some better tires on them.

I wonder what a run would be with powershifting/ no-lift shift? (i know its horrible on the transmission, i never did it, but i think it will be a bit faster
