Redline Time Attack Rd.4 Recap

Round 4 of this year's Redline Time Attack, brought the turbocharged #11 GReddy tC back to Willow Springs Int'l Raceway.  Since the last time we were there for Rd.1, the car has gotten quite a few upgrades, but the hot desert temperatures made it difficult for us to show them all.  Even still, we manage a best time of 1:35.2 in the afternoon session with 95+F temps, that is almost a 5secs quicker then when we started the program in March, with 70F temps in Rd.1.  Pretty good progress in such a short time.  The 2011 Scion tC is really shaping up to be a great weekend Time Attacker.

But all in all, with a 2nd place finish, this was a good test for our development of our new upcoming GReddy Tuner Turbo Kit for the 2011 tC.  We found some areas we could improve the kit even more and makes us anxious for next round of tight competition, which is coming up soon.... Rd. 5, July 23-24 at Buttonwillow Int'l Speedway
