    • - 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.

        That was really funny stuff! Thanks for the compliment, and yes no BS, that is all that's been done to it. Believe me, when I bought it last July, I was pretty surprised how it ran. Bone stock it ran 11.9/120 at Famoso, on a warm day, and I was pretty disappointed in the mph, though. It dyno'd 460 before the tune and CAI. After it did 503rwhp, but what I noticed on the dyno graph was the power for some reason was peaking about 250rpm sooner. I was shifting at 7000 before, so after the mods I shifted at 6500, and that combination netted 8mph in the 1/4 mile. Another thing is the ram air effect I mentioned (I believe) in an earlier post that builds 1/2lb of boost over 100mph. That type of racing (1/2 mile roll) is ideal for this car. I touch 7000rpm in 4th right at the finish=159-160mph. I had an '02 ZO6 previously with a ton of work done (425ci, ported LS7 heads, big cam, ported tb and intake manifold, LT headers, C6 rear end with a Quaife diff,etc.) and it trapped 128 with 580rwhp on slicks. I think one of the issues in comparison is the trans gearing is considerably better in the '08 ZO6, and I think a little better aero. All I know is, the '08 is considerably easier to drive than the highly modded '02, and it hauls ass in the 1/2 mile.

        Ahh, you're the guy my buddy from Ventura Motorsports keeps telling me about. He says he always sees you at the 76 Gas station and you were at the last Shift s3ctor event I remember seeing you there too. Your car is beautiful man.

        Great vids everyone. Getting great media and great feedback from everyone. And the first question still has been "When's the next one?!?!"

        I think there may be time to squeeze another in for all those that missed out, and those that would like to do it again... before summerClick here to enlarge

        That would be awesome!! I hope I can make it down if it does happen as this one looked epic and I was sorry i couldn't make it down to try out the 335Xi single turbo with some real comparisons
