Celica Sprint Techniques


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Myself and Oli were discussing by PM, 0-60 sprint times of the facelifted Celica T-Sport and it raised another question in my mind. What is the best technique for sprinting off the line, particularly in the 190bhp Celicas? I'm not condoning sprinting to 60 or racing on suburban 30 limit streets, but in my opinion there's nothing wrong with trying to get to 60 or 70 as fast as possible on a dual carriageway from the lights if that is the actual limit on the road. We didn't buy Celicas to dawdle along after all B) .

It's very easy to wheelspin (which of course ruins any sprint), so what is generally recommended? What do you have on the rev counter if anything before you initially release the clutch? Also,when changing up to second do you A)keep the accelerator nailed to the floor as you change, B)come off the accelerator completely whilst the clutch is down, C)keep the accelerator at reduced revs and if so then at what level? After all, the skill of the driver can make a huge difference when doing this...
