I can't believe i'm the first one back

couple of cars dipped into the 13's - lot of fast cars out today. most people had in excess of 100MPH traps. I think oldpoopie went the fastest for the day - followed by OCTDI. Those two were neck and neck the whole time.

lots of fun, wish I was spending my time going fast instead of trying to figure out why my boost was falling off :(

It was a lot of fun to watch...was impressed to see what TDI's were capable of being a noob and all!

13.9x something was the best - ~108 top traps?

lots of people trapping 103-106 and doing high 14's, plenty of us were fresh to the drag scene.

My best was my first run and it was something terrible like ~15.24 @ like ~97 - my best trap was just shy of 100 and I kept having turbo problems.

Mine were in the 17.6~17.8 second and 75~80 mph range, probably the slowest trap speed of our group.
On the plus side: I got to enjoy the experience for 3 seconds longer per run than most of the others. That's like one free run with every five completed, right?

Man, your MK2 was hauling!!! Great traps. And, I need to learn how to drive. I kept babying it off the line with 2.5 60' times. Best time was a 14.97. At least I said goodbye to 15's this year, and nothing broke!

Some great shots!! Awesome day at the track and some very impressive runs. Justin's (Poopie) car was impressive, as was Travis' (shoulda run more than 3 passes, you were getting better with each run and shoulda been in the 13's as well!), but I have to say that Robert's car was pretty impressive too, breaking into the 13's just shy of Justin's time and his trap speed was right up around the same (104-105 mph) and all this from a guy who's only run his car down the 1/4 mile less then a dozen times EVER! And Pierre was out there giving it his all and getting faster passes each time, very nice! Well done to all!!

Did Comp461 ever show up for an actual race? If so, How badly did he lose? Someone post a comprehensive writeup, please!

Have fun, Guys!

His Friday night post on comp diesel indicates that he was not coming, unfortunately. Previously he said he would have the car brought in and then fly in to drive it. I thought he was going to do it because he said he was going to use the event for testing thereby laying the groundwork to explain a loss...

Was Travis running drag radials? That's cheating! Lol. I cut my 2.1 60' on bald street tires! Good work everyone!

Looks like I have some room for improvement!

It's not cheating when you share them with anyone who asked to run them. :rolleyes:
Poops and I bought the set and we share them. When we were done and packing them up MAXRPM and David asked to use them to see what they could do.

One of the coordinators has all the time slips. They said something about putting all the times on a spreadsheet. Hopefully they will post it up and give me back my time slips.

O.C.

Well that sure is nice of you! I might buy myself a set, but it would prob cause my trans to grenade. No LSD, stock internals. I try to be good to it but I know it will need an upgrade someday, especially with my power...:eek:

Yes thank you very much Travis. Nice meeting up as well. Our fastest time was without the slicks though.

I managed a 16.2 for my fastest run of the morning. Trap speeds were around 85 or so. Not as fast as my 15.9 I ran two weeks earlier, but being nice to the new LSD and clutch will do that. Malone's got a more powerful tune for me in the mail.
