Honestly, I'm pretty surprised Terry would say something like that with his time on this forum and in automotive performance in general.

He says he has an LSX background. Well, Vortech blowers are very popular in that scene. Doesn't he know the difference between a V3si and a YSI?

How exactly can a 174 trap speed from a previous event even count when there isn't a set distance or speed for acceleration to make the trap a useful comparison tool like it is on the drag strip? And how would a car that is running more boost than before, with a more aggressive tune on C16, going to be 'about the same' ?

It's reaching and I'm surprised. "

You're entitled to your opinion but we have different approaches. I believe that is why my approach results in far greater performance. I don't mind fixing whatever breaks.
Yes I break down a lot more than I'd like. That's racing. I didn't bring home the BMW trophy because I didn't want to start from a dig and go over 168mph. Not sure I could have beated these guys anyway without risking my stock motor so in a way I didn't have big enough balls to take it home. Drew did. Maybe next time you will. "

Does anyone know if the 1/2 starts at the cones or the staging area? It doesn't look like there's a line or any marker where these cars are staging.

It would make sense for the cones to be the 1/2 start marker. Were people who were doing digs starting at the cones or from the staging area? "

If you and him have a personal issue resolve it personally off the forums. Drew shows up to literally every race, always races both days (I only go for one day), and I've never seen him turn down a race from anyone. Even in cases where his car wasn't running at its best he'd still go out and race. Maybe your car is faster, I don't know, but we really need more people like Drew showing up to every race ready to go. Not speaking to anyone in specific here but it's just too easy for people to stay home, do a VBOX run on a cold night, and claim they are faster than the next guy. People need to show up and race. "

You're smarter than that.

Reference my above statement. Exactly, traps vary as this isn't a drag strip with a set start and distance.

Regardless Terry, you are welcome as always to come see for yourself at the roll on event I told you about. Hopefully you can up the boost on the M5 or 135i so we can finally have a run as well.
Honestly I've not yet read this thread. Just browsed a couple posts.

Either way always down for more races. What's why we build these cars!

Any evolve kit is beast...i started looking into them after I saw your sig. If I can get my 2.0L to beat out your 4.0L Supercharged V8...it will be the most epic accomplishment ever for me. As of right now I can leave you from a 60mph roll and then you run me down and go by me easy anything north of 115mph.....I cant handle that big V8 in the upper speeds...hoping a few more modifications will even out the playing field...or at least prevent you from catching me that much longer until hopefully the 1/2mile mark.....we will see tho...I gotta get the stuff working first and thats a whole other story.

Make sure and come say hi regardless...it will be easier for you to find me seeing as how I will prob be the only GTI there...LOL its black in case there is also a white one there that makes me look stock...fastest one in the U.S.....which still isnt a heavy hitter compared to most people here...lol

Have you been to this before? Are you able to beat people? or are you bottom of the food chain and are lucky to win one? God I hope im not one of the slowest people there....what a waste that would be...wonder what the Avg HP car will be.... "
