Could someone post and or tell me where I can get my slips. I need them for my files and would like to post my numbers without guessing.

I never saw anybody collecting slips... I picked mine up at the time booth with what seemed like most of the other guys...

I got them from the track. I was asked to hand them over to the tdifest staff at the fest so they could award the best times.

I asked Zippy to type up an excel and post it. She said she should have it posted in a couple days. If you want your physical slips, I'm sure she'd be happy to put them in an envelope for you ;)

Yep, Get Zippy to mail em to you. It was the one thing I forgot to grab when we were leaving.

I have to give special thanks to Travis for helping me get this thing together. He and his welder spent a good deal of time getting that GTB2260vk bolted up to my streettoys cast iron manifold, fabbing a downpipe and lower intercooler pipe, and setting the VNT up with a vac-actuator. He got it so close to perfect just 2 weeks before fest that I still havent messed with the actuator or stop screw.

Thanks to FixumRich too, for letting Travis work on my car at the shop and have access to the lift.

Also a thanks to Jeff from Rocketchip. He sent my 4bar map tune, set to 35psi, to me 3 days before fest. I drove it a bit, but it was shutting down on me at WOT. Jeff turned down the fuel a tiny bit on Friday night and that is the only tweak we did. He kept on asking me if it needed any more changes...... LOL... I guess not!!!

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!!
Ed it was nice seeing you again this year at the fest, After I finished dragging at woodburn I only have a total 8 passes, 2 passes last year at PIR, OR (G-12 spillage closed runway NB fixum), and 6 passes now at woodburn, at the end I was getting better,, I had such a blast racing against all TDI's. props to my buddy MK2 purple Jetta, he was letting it rip,,,, My best time at Woodburn was 13.98 sec @ 105.37 mph (street tires and on D-2 only), hope we get next fest close by so we can try to drive there and drag again,, thanks all you guys it was a pleasure to be at the fest and I really enjoyed being with this great family of TDI's cars.

I have alot of video. My stuff, stuff my wife shot, and stuff Pat shot. I'll have it up soon. Pats' videos are in this super funky format. I'm converting them, it's just cumbersome.

I guess I'll have to co-ordinate w/Jet and others... I've been trying to post them up but am having trouble w/the file size limit here on Fred's. I'm working with Fred on a resolution but... it's starting to look like I'd be just a well off hosting them myself. I'll post one up when I get home from work as a 'teaser'. I am converting them w/o problems so maybe shoot me a PM Brian and we can figure out who's doing what...

PS.. if you mean AVCHD (HiDef) by funky, I'll take funky :)

Mmmmmm, I could be wrong but I've heard of this site on the web that hosts video for free that can be linked to from here .... I think it is called youtube.com

It's a quality issue... These are very large full 1080 HD videos. I'm transcoding them down but don't want to compromise quality to the point of SD. Right now it looks like 720x480 is a nice compromise between quality and size. Even so, about 30 seconds of video is about 25MB. I'm working on it and if hosting here doesn't work out, there are other options including youtube.

Curious what gear everyone was launching in. I never got brave enough for a 2nd gear launch.

I was too chicken to use 2nd too. The race I beat Pierre, he used 2nd and it bogged down, hence the big W for me :) I think you could use 2nd, but you'd need to rev it to 5k and slip it down to 3.5 before dumping it... Just my thoughts...

I want stiffer suspension. If I could launch well in 2nd I bet I could get a 2.1 or 2.0 60' and cut my time to 14.2 or so...

Yes, very cool to see some good videos. Thanks Pat and everyone else who contributed! I don't know what the ALH guys are gonna do for next year, but when Travis gets his fueling issues sorted out, stand by!!! My money is on O.C.Tdi next year ;)
