    Pathetic to say the least.......I guess you will just have to go and destroy all the bimmerpost cars. Make sure you have the biggest BIMMERBOOST wrap, sticker on the back of your car, so they know where their missery is coming from.

    Haha, most definitely.

    I'm not even upset about this any longer. As long as I can participate it's all good, I'll get my name out there my own way.

    I wouldn't take this personally Sticky, Shift Sector may simply be choosing to endorse another forum which they have an existing relationship with.

    From the sounds of it, the event doesn't have much room to grow physically, so why pursue this. If this was Bimmerfest, I would be a little bit more concerned.....

    It really gets me down that I work so hard and others are just malicious when it comes to me or this site. I don't wish anyone ill will but it gets me upset bimmerpost makes things so personal.

    Guess I have to just keep my head up and keep grinding.

    Why do you act so stupid sometimes, yet are sharp on other matters? They SPECIFICALLY told you they don't want you to sponsor due to a conflict with another forum. A dealership is not a forum. Don't act so stupid.

    Is your car even going to be at this event? Is even alive?

    Legally, they can't throw you out for having stickers on your car. Anyone who supports BB and is attending should slap a BB sticker on the car. Show enough of a presence and they can't deny it to you in the future.

    That's not exactly correct. It's a private event and they can ask anyone they want to leave for whatever reason they decide.

    I would recommend a tasteful, easily removed decal/sticker on the car. That way, if they get stupid about it you can simply remove it and not have wasted your time driving there. If your car is done, and as nasty as expected, then people are going to come to you to discuss it and you can tell them all about BimmerBoost. And by acting mature about it all, you won't look like all these immature people who get all obsessed over forum drama.

    Oh so you read the e-mails I got regarding them not having any more room for sponsors? Oh I'm sorry Mr. know it all, you don't look stupid or anything now:

    The event in feb had a 5930' runway whereas this one is 5000' (unless I got it backwards on my google search). I would rather race the following week in vegas at the streetcar supernationals....I don't know for sure if I can go but that is my aim.

    Luke - 1/19 is only 2,471 feet so it is doubtful that runway will be used. I will have to find out which runway my guy was referring to with potholes but it is likely some things got combined. At the end of the day if we assume the following (based upon terminal speed of say 180mph which could be doable)

    400 feet will be used to get up to speed for the roll on
    2,640 for the 1/2 mile race
    500 reaction to hit the brakes at the top end (just under 2 seconds
    3,540
    5,000 runway
    1,460 to stop

    This is too tight for me as this assumes the run starts at the very beginning of the runway and that we have the entire length at our disposal. If the shutdown area was equal to the run length I think it would be a different story.

    If that's the case, then please make sure you guys are very careful. I'd be very scared of potholes going at 100+mph, or cracks for that matter.

    Good points Earl - I missed that 2471' on 1/19...Either way, going that fast requires really good pavement unless you want damage of some sort. Loose asphalt will for sure get you some rock chips...can't even imagine hitting a pothole at 100+ mph. Click here to enlarge

    The offsetting factor is of course that you don't need to come to a complete stop but I think I will sit on the sidelines as the runoff is just to short for me.
