Earlier this year Mikko Kataja from VHT Racing put his Toyota Starlet race car on the dyno to prepare for upcoming races. The naturally aspirated 4A-GE inline-four made 255 horsepower at 10,309 rpm on Aral Ultimate 102 octane fuel. The motor is paired with a Sadev six-speed sequential gearbox, carbon fiber driveshaft, and AE86 Corolla GT rear end with Cusco LSD. Watch Mikko compete at the KW Berg-Cup Schottenring in Schotten, Germany.
The video below is from inside the Starlet on training run #4. This was Mikko’s fastest at 1:24.583.
