Do Not Sell My Personal Information



Recommended Posts


Ive been using lift in second and third a couple of times a week (normally when at lights with leons, A3's etc)

How much is too much though?

Coming form a car which redlines at about 7k it feels like I am thrashing the engine taking it to 8.2k.

Does anyone else feel this after a good 'blip' ?

Only second and third??

What about 1st! :lol:

As for thrashing the car at high rpm's... the engine was designed and tested to run at upwards of 4k rpm with no issues ;)

HKS High power is an exhaust.

You can't feel lift in 6th really. It just goes. 5th you feel a slight oull still. Needless to say you're neardouble the speedlimit at that RPM in 6th. ;)

Last time I was in Germany I was at about 149mph at 7600rpm in 6th. Just couldnt quite do it... yet ;) Hands started sweating badly and I understand fully why people wear driving gloves.

this is probably down to my lack of driving experience in a "racing scenario" but personally i hate first gear lol

i hit the high revs so fast and when i go to do a quick gear change sometimes theres a real loud thump as i change, and a fair old jolt - i didnt notice the big thump in my Yaris t sport, maybe it has a more sporty clutch/gearbox combo

is it down to my own style or what?? i drive the 1.6 t3 btw?

(i figure if im only getting a couple of mpg more by driving like an old lady i might as well enjoy the drive for a few mpg less lol)

Hitting Lift in 6th is not possible in this country without risking losing your licence!!

Lift in 3rd puts you over the national speed limit!! :lol:

6th gets you nowhere....

5th tops out at around 145 then 6th just sticks at it....

dont ask me how i know... i just do

sort of agree, but i doubt 145, i askd this a while ago as i had found a photo from someone on facebook hitting roughly 148/149 and people on here when i posted it said 145 wouldnt be possible, although this lad had a few more hundred revs left and was in fifth, maybe it could, hope so as toyota only state 139 if im correct ?

but i used to go for a blast just to hit lift lol dont do it as often now, especialy when just going to work and for obvious reasons when we have the baby in the car :)

remember, life begins at 6200rpm ;)

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
