Ba... just means that the competition will have a little leg up on puf mobile.

so.. make sure your car is ready to race. We'll have a flat bed there the haul folks back and a couple of shops open and available in case anyone breaks anything. You won't be left stranded if the car breaks while you race.

Well, my practice ended with a time of 15.930 @ 85.51 next to oldPoopies 15.732 @ 92.30..
Oddly enough, previous to this past weekend my best run was
R/T .581
60' 2.235
1/8 10.153
mph 70.81
1/4 15.733
mph 86.67

My fastest this weekend was a 15.22 @ about 98. I left the timeslips at a friends house so I dont have the rest of the stats for the best of the day, but the one slip I do have is:

R/T .195
60' 2.689
1/8 10.533
mph 77.33
1/4 15.619
mph 97.52

My trap speed is almost 10mph faster at nearly the same 1/4 mile time. The new turbo had only gone in about 12 hours before, so I was being gentle. Boost gauge goes to 25psi, and is maxed out.. Gotta get the 40psi gauge in there! Wanna get the isspro performax gauges. MADE IN PORTLAND!!!!!

Big thanks to Justin. He kept me same at the track and is helping get the car taken care of.

Upgrades include a new higher friction clutch disk and a pelequin diff.

Plan is to drive it all over once it is back together and have it ready to go full out at fest. Last Sunday was my first time on the track. Looking forward to getting back out there. It was super fun.

Man, that trap speed is so promising, the 60' = FAIL though :eek: If you could hook, and run flat out, I see high 13's. You need some slicks J...

--speaking of slicks-- if anyone has a pair, I'd love to use them as well LOL. Just sayin'

I managed 3 runs last Sunday. First one was 15.3 at 95 mph. With the traction control on and the a/c on. Second and third run were 15.13 and 15.14 at 96mph

There will be a small fuel surcharge/travel fee if anyone needs to use the trailer. It will be less than $75 to get you car back up to Portland which is less than the hookup charge for most tow trucks.

Okay, So Wondering out loud.. can we get a list of basis rules/regulations at woodburn? I lucked out, you need to have pants on while racing... shorts are not allowed. somehow at waterlands I got away with shorts....
WEAR PANTS!

WEAR PANTS!
When I was last on a track (not a drag race track), they specified natural fiber pants (and shirts) only. They would not allow synthetic (nylon, rayon. etc.) fibers because of the danger of fire. Cotton (like denim) pants will not melt and do more damage. Just a thought. I would stick with blue jeans.

Have Fun!

I don't know Puff . Was thinking about it . To many Iron's in the fire ! Just wanted to stir the pot . R
Bah! you totally could race. Plenty of time in the morning to get a few runs in!

But then again.. I don't know if it would be safe for you to run... last time the beetle ruined the lane for everyone. :p Can the beetle handle it this time around. ;) :)

Last time?!?!? LAST time?!?!? More like EVERY time.... New Beetle TDIs can't handle drag racing! It's proven!
2000, Wilmington, NC, TDIFest (no year denominator needed for the first one):
New Beetle developed wheelhop and blew the R&P.
Ten years later and they still haven't been able to compete without puking drivelines!

I plan to prove you wrong then.... After my car is fixed up from me forcefully removing the spider gears from the differential while the transmission was still installed in the car.

A quick G-tech test on an empty side road showed that I ran 16.92 at 84...
Well I guess I'd better just STFU and quit trash talking about Beetles....

Still, that's better than my best B4 time of 18.18.

You guys... I'm so sorry, but I won't be able to make TDI fest... or the racing. :( An urgent matter has come up and it requires my immediate attention.

This sucks, I was so looking forward to seeing you all again. :mad:

Those of you that have my cell #, I would love to see some pics, or texts of the race results... thanks!

I'm going to miss you!
