Event Review: Dyno Day @ Schalk’s Conversions

TTCC were back this winter with our first power event of the year and the legendary Boxie builder Schalk from Schalk’s Conversions kindly hosted us on the 28th of June at his fine premises in Kempton Park.

Battling against the cold, we convoyed to the location of where some of the countries mental 2JZ Boxie conversions have been stabled. Schalk waited in anticipation as we drove in and filled up his parking lot with some of Jozi’s sweetest Toyotas. The weather and a very consistent and accurate dyno made for really comparable figures between participants. Learning how cars respond to different mods and upgrades surely had everyone going. Conversations sparked and warmed things up for everyone…

Event Review: Full Circuit Advanced Driving

More often than not people tend to make flashy purchases of the latest sports cars and saloons. Big price tags and equally big egos until the vehicle gets parked up a tree in some local suburb. Here with the Twin Cam Club we take pride in those possessions and help you enjoy them and try keep you safe as well. Yet again, this May the TTCC held our annual advanced driving and full circuit event at the Z. With the capable Toyota Advanced Driving (TAD) instructors by our sides we took to the track to brush up those driving skills…

Event Review: Skid Pan Advanced Driving @ Zwartkops

Skids and slides as you know it, are as dangerous as they are fun. Our annual event attempts to wipe that danger factor out and keep you in control.

The TTCC held our annual Skid Control and Collision Avoidance course on the Skid Pan at Zwartkops Raceway on Saturday 29th of March. With Toyota Advanced Driving present, we had a confident bunch of newbies and pros eager to learn and test their skills.

The committee had the venue set up nice and early, while our helpful members led the convoys to the Z. With everyone together, TAD’s well versed instructors briefed us all in what traction and control is all about, how to keep it, how to lose it, and how to regain it. With the theory out of the way, TTCC’s live test dummy Nishan did a few demonstrations so we could get an idea of what the practical exercise should look like.
