    • - No Fly Zone - 3/2/2013 roll on race event pictures and impressions

      GermanBoost.com is happy to report that the No Fly Zone private airstrip roll on race event was a resounding success. A lot of serious hardware showed up and Tony from Omega Motorsport Events did an excellent job organizing everything. Everyone knew where to go and what to do. The pictures below showcase what was there and how things looked quite well. Yes, everyone wants race videos and those will all be coming shortly and will be posted throughout the week.

      For now, enjoy the pictures. The organization was well done and there are photos showing the quality of the tarmac. I think all participants who experienced this event as well as another competing event can state this venue and tarmac were of much higher quality.

      For those who want an event T-Shirt please private message me here or E-mail me at admin@germanboost.com. T-Shirts are $20 each.

      I would also like to personally thank Tony and his wife as well as @Weistec and @Terry@BMS . For some inexplicable reason Weistec and Burger Tuning just treat myself and this entire network incredibly well. They also always behave like complete professionals. A personal shout out as well to @JRCART (as well as his friend Rich) who brought out his vehicles and came in all the way from Chicago and @LZH who had some car trouble but still came out.

      Looking forward to doing this type of event again soon... with my own car in the mix. Photos below.

But to beat the GTR he references, he'd have to be running 150+ MPH.
        He actually said he lost to the 600hp GTR. With a tune and intake, I would take a guess he gained about 40-50rwhp. So he's probably in the high 400s in a lightweight sub 3200lbs car with ridiculous gearing and aerodynamics, it should be no surprise as to why he was on Terry's ass. Don't hate on the so called old man who knows a thing or two lol.

        Ya, big comp can make big power with tons of octane. Lower comp gives more flexibility definitely but also less off-boost power.

        It will run soon... Click here to enlarge
        We can all have a meet one night. I still owe you a good run @terrry@bms

        Man, I don't mean to rain on your parade but his car is very possible at doing what it did. At the last airstrip event I was hitting 150 in my car with the .45 mile not even a full half.I raced a z06 with intake and tune just like him and he trapped 160. Move to the 2.15 mark to watch me vs z06.




        Another thing, your driving skills could improve a lot. Your shifts and not clean at all and take way too much time. This is how you drive a corvette.

        If you look closer at my post I said I lost to the 600hp GTR by a car length. He got that probably a little after my 2-3 shift, and then we stayed dead even, just like my race with Terry's 135i. The reason I "backed out" of the race with your ZR1 is after asking you what speed you trapped (answer 145-150), I knew the race would be a little embarrassing for a new owner of a ZR1, as I was running 159-160 all day every race. My car hits 7000rpm in fourth right at the finish. I missed one shift all day (2-3) and that was the next to the last race of the day for me (I'm 60 years old and honestly was getting tired). And yes I'll hand it to a stock GTR in a roll race anytime. Maybe I do have the fastest "stock" ZO6, who knows, but I have been driving manual trannies since I was 10 years old, and yes I probably could school you in some "race savvy tips" if you'd like. I'll be at Coalinga Airport April 7th for Shift S3ctor event of the same (1/2 mile roll race), and I'll be glad to show you how fast I can go and how I do it.

        That would all be close to correct. We all know dynos can vary,etc. My car did 460rwhp totally stock. I bought it used with 3900 miles from a dealer in Petaluma who new the owner. He was an old guy like me, who had quite a few nice cars. I think what happens is the old guys think "I'll buy the fast Corvette" but they don't realize how fast they are, and get scared, i.e., the low mileage after 4 and 1/2 years of ownership. (I wouldn't fall it that category.) We put on a Vararam CAI and tuned it with HP Tuners and it put down 503rwhp. Because the Vararam is actually a ram air device with a big scoop right behind the wide mouth grill of the ZO6, the car actually builds about a 1/2lb of boost over 100mph, and probably a little more the faster you go (just a guess). My tuner says he has never seen this with any other CAI. I'm not saying that's the answer to the cars speed, as personally, I think it's from the last line in the quote above!Click here to enlarge

        Hell yea that boy can throw em! That's currently the fastest ZR1 I think.. Unless the record was just recently broken. You know how that sh*t goes though, blink and someone else has a better time or trap speed lol

        Lol, well, thanks for "saving me the embarrassment," - guess we may never know (I will be out of town for ShiftSector, maybe we can catch Tony's next event, but I'd be curious to know how you push your skinny pedal down further than mine - I started in 2nd and was thru the gate in 5th (a bit) every run, I redline 6500 tho and we have the same tranny and diff) - but wasn't that the point of Saturday??? The thing is, you willingly backed out of the race then come here and talk sh!t on the internets... thats backwards.


        Bash on my granny shifting all you want, I never said I was Ben Rhodes, its just really too bad Tony didnt have speed traps - All I had was a dash mounted Garmin NUVI GPS recording the "top speed" - maybe it was off. I beat the guy in the blue supercharged C5 vert and he also "said" he was trapping 160-165... Who knows.


        Sounds like it could have been a good race though.

        So saying your driving wasn't as "capable" is talking $#@!e? Uhh...well, I'll leave it at that. And yes, as a fellow Vette owner, especially with the king of, I thought I would save you the embarrassment of having it handed to you by a basically stock underling. And the skinny pedal doesn't go any further down, but the harmony of the clutch and throttle does make a difference. I shift at 6500 also because the car is faster than going to 7000, but I do pull 7000 in 4th which gives me 159-160mph. So I guess I shouldn't have been scared of your 145-150 trap speed and "backed down", and gone ahead with the race. If we do meet up again it will happen.

        Wow I didn't know the Weistec Stg 3 was pump on stock internals. Very impressed.

        I probably wont do a Stg 3 build but I do know the Red Stg 3 ESS M3 in the vid I posted will be at the Shift Sector event in early April. Would be terrific to see you guys do a couple runs. It's a two day event and currently April 6th (Sat) is sold out but there are some spots for April 7 (Sun).

        Yes, stock internal and pump tune but I had race fuel in the tank for the event. My CLK has Weistec pistons and rods, race gas tune, Weistec race ported heads and more boost than my C.

        I am considering doing shift sector event.
