        I've been talking to people and they prefer higher cost and less cars.

        So, likely around $250 a car unless there are any objections?

        I told you, lol. Vendors like us don't care for an extra $50 as long as we can get more runs. Data like the 1/4 strip is gold for us.

        I doubt any of us care about $50. I just want to make it as much fun as possible and so nobody complains.

        I got invited out to that Red List thing and it's like 500+ cars. I told the guy it just made more sense to do a private rental.

        As long as it's vendors and close vendor friends, that's all we care about.

        Yea Red list is a no for me. :/ first time we went it was supposed to be under 100ppl... It was like double.

        I think the timing is good too.

        I know Terry would prefer blizzard conditions to set some record times but this will be realistic California weather. Anyone running fast times here is truly fast.

        Even playing field for everyone too and some serious tuners coming out.

        Any best on who runs the fastest time?

        That's what I was saying too. It will be even for all of us that day.
        At least we know traction will be good. Some methanol or E85 will help those high IATs, so I'm not worried

        I'm not worried either.

        Plus I plan to make a video and record all the runs of the event. I'll be sure to explain the difference between these conditions and ATCO for the slower (literally and figuratively) people out there.

        Also, a few vendors have asked about advertising or sponsorship. I think we'll just do one title sponsor so BoostAddict.com drag day brought to you by NAMEHERE with the vendor name on all the media.

        So whomever is interested you can contact me now if you like.

        Heads up on the start time guys.

        We can do 9 AM to 4 PM or so and keep in mind it is warmest at 5-6 pm.

        We could also do 6 pm to midnight but will any of you want to stay that late? I mean, I personally don't mind or care I can go all night.

        There is added cost with the lights on though.

        Keep in mind, it can certainly be a cool 70 degree day which means no need to run into the night with added cost and have people getting home at 3 AM or later.

        I think the 9 AM start time makes the most sense.

        Good news, Dyno Spectrum is in with a few cars.

        Looks like we are going to have the who's who of California German auto tuners in attendance.

        I wish I could make the trek out there, but that's not in the cards. Any hopes it will be a live streamed event?

        I don't think there is any way I would have the bandwidth available to livestream.
