Forgot to mention that I've now owned my MR2 for 10 years as of this month, and I love it more than ever!

On Friday March 22 I'll be going Roll Racing at Eastern Creek again and I'm really looking forward to it! I've been once before and it was really fun, but this will be the first time with my new 5SGTE 418rwkw engine setup.

I also replaced some worn-out front suspension parts a few weeks ago with new OEM parts (ball joints, inner and outer tie rod ends and new rubber boots, all on both sides of the car). Garage 88 then did a full wheel alignment and the car feels awesome.

I've been driving the car heaps lately, can't help myself!

I'll be keen to come watch that. I too am dieing to take my car out for a drive, need to get my coolant parts and I'll be going for some more late night drives. 

Glad you did the whole lot at the front while you were there. Did they dial in more camber at the front or just left the alignment how it was?

The front camber is about 2 degrees which is the most that I can get with the rims a few mm away from the coilovers.

Any chance you can capture some video footage of the car roll racing? Would love to see it.

Hopefully there'll be some mates there to film some races.
I might use my GoPro inside too.

The roll racing got postponed to last night due to rain last week. Here's a video from last night's elimination race against the 'EVL02J' Supra. Even though I lost, it's a good video! You can hardly hear my car over the mighty 2J in the car next to me!
My max speed was ~130mph.

Looks wild! Can't imagine what that type of power and acceleration would be like in a MR2.

That supra has close 500rwkw, im surprised you lost with a car with 420rwkw - better delivery and less weight.

Does either car have rolling anti-lag, nitrous, Co2 and other pieces that help the launch.... final drive / gear ratios... Supra 1500kg, MR2 1,300kg (115% weight, 119% power)...
many things make a car go zoom... competing against displacement with a 4cyl turbo is challenging until you are in high rpm... and dam it happens so quick :)

Good effort Rob

I don't know all the details about that Supra, but yes it has about 500rwkw, and it has an auto transmission, and drag tyres which I don't have. I never expected to win that race haha. 
One thing that people often forget, is that it's not just about the peak power, it's about the area under the whole power curve. The Supra would have significantly more power at low RPM due to the larger capacity of a 2JZ. The result of this (combined with the drag tyres and different gear ratios) is clearly evident in the video when the Supra gets ahead of my MR2 in the first half of the race. 
If you watch closely towards the end of the race, the gap hardly increases at all because at that point it's all down to the power-to-weight ratio at peak power, which is very similar in both cars.

I got a last-minute invite to Wakefield Park yesterday with the Supra Club after someone else cancelled, and I finally got a new PB of 1:10.490. I know at least a few spots where I can definitely go faster, so 1:09 should be on the cards very soon! I'm not sure which of the laps in this session was the fastest, maybe the last one.
