The 2009 NHRDA Division 1 Diesel Drag Race Series is kicking off on March 21st at PIR.

Anyone else want to come out to play? It's a heckuva lot more fun when I'm not the only TDI there...:eek:

I am there. I will see if the next round of mods will allow my car to run this time:)

Maybe I will just have to run the 09' if I can pry it away from the wife;)

Ed,

If you are going down, let me know.

If you need a place to stay going down and back, we have a extra room.

Thanks for the kind offer, Jorry, but unfortunately I'll be busy during that time. It's kinda right in the middle of Spring Break and I'll be spending the week with kids. Looks like we'll be up at Big White doing some snow stuff.

Best of luck to the Jetta-Girl Racing Team and anyone else that decides to participate!

I sure wish you could make it, Ed! It's always fun to see you.:)

Thanks for the kind words or encouragement, we are going to do our best. :D

I don't really know what to expect this year... the car has a different set-up than last year. I'm hoping for high 15's to start. I'll let ya know in a couple weeks. :D

Are you going to come out to play?

Haha, no. Just wondering what a modded TDI does at the track. I have an Eclipse to race when I want to go fast, but I totally respect people who go all-out on these cars. They're super torquey!

When my car was stock, it went 19.5 seconds in the 1/4 mile. Then with my DieselPower tuning box and TPC, I got down to the mid to high 16's. Last year, I had a bigger turbo (5 of them when all was said and done:eek: ) PD150 injectors, 3 bar map, dual exhaust, a few different tunes, and some sweet tires/wheels and got down into the 15's. 15.98 to be exact.

But this year, we are going to focus on keeping the turbo in one piece, and I have a different tuner that I'm working with. This first race might not be so impressive since we are a little behind schedule with plans... but I'm looking forward to a great season with great numbers to support all of our hard work on the car. :)

How fast is your Eclipse? I bet its fun to race! :cool:

A 4 second decrease in ET is nothing to scoff at! My Eclipse (next time I bring it up), should run 12s, no problem. AWD + Turbo = drag magic. :D

Anyway, good luck this season!

I finally have all of the parts....now it's coming down to some fab work on my end. I've also been getting it ready for paint but I hate sanding so it's taking a while :rolleyes:

It'll be nice to see you again, even if you don't get to race with us. :)

Yeah, it'll be great to see everyone again as it seems like it's been far too long.

I'm excited to see you all again! I'm headed up to JSP this weekend to have Jose and Mark Malone work some magic on the car to get it ready... I'm just hoping against all odds to have the new wrap done by then.:eek:

There is a good possibility that I won't be racing with the NHRDA, so I could probably be in the Test-n-Tune lanes with you all. That would be cool!

See you all at the track!
