So Wil beat Dave, where is Eric, did he drive a 540??

BTW Dave, was it the suspension or the HP deficit that killed you, :D

Mr.Dave
Well, it's a diesel... and the powerband in second gear on my car really sucks. Even when you floor it, it takes it's time. I had a great time though!

Dreamn
Cool, I don't remember if I posted this, but here are the results from my autox last sunday. I need sticky tires, :D
Look for #66 Miata in CS

Mr.Dave
Nice times! :cheers:

woo wooo you beat a z06 dave! even if it was DNF

Sweet, thanks Dave. Didn't even notice they were up.

Eric didn't run this time, we'll get him out there next season. It was me, Dave and Nogaro Nitwit (the S4 a couple places below me). It was a great time, beautiful weekend for it. Too bad some dude ran over the timing equipment.

I really need some tires. I was understeering like crazy through the skidpad, just couldn't get any grip. I'll probably wait til spring to get tires since my OEM tires will handle the winter better. Then I'll fry em up nice for you guys on camera :D

these were all stop watch times?

these were all stop watch times?

The last heat was stop watch times, which was what we were all in.

Mr.Dave
There was a 1992 BMW 850i with a V12, thing sounded pretty sweet... though it had something off with the engine.

Nogaro Nitwit
Damn, if it weren't for me slowing down going into the last set of turns, I would have done alittle bit better than my best time. Oh well. Not bad for my first time. Lots of people placed behind me, so it isn't that bad :naughty:

:cheers: to all the guys that showed up (Dave, Will, Eric and Jason). That was a lot fun!

Mr.Dave
Absolutely! Here's to next time! :thumbsup:

eric
I'm doing everything in my power to have a competent AuotX car by the spring, at the latest by the end of the summer.

Sweet, I'm working with some of the other guys I met up with out there to form a racing team. It wouldn't just be a "hey we're cool. we have a team" team, it would be an actual race team that sponsors and runs their own events. Should be a good time. You definitely need to get a car to head out there Eric!

That's friggin awesome. Is it all gonna be mustang people?

I'm gonna try my best to get a car that I can use as a daily driver and an AutoX car.

RedLine
Didnt you have an RX-7 at one point.........

Yeah, you should definitely get one that'll be a daily driver.

The team will probably be mostly Mustangs at the start along with the blue WRX STi that was out at the event you went to.

It's fucking awesome that the E30 M3 spanked all the newer M cars.

Mr.Dave
I'm gonna hit up as many Auto-X races up here! I don't care if I'm slow, I'll just be the oddball guy with a diesel! :D

RedLine
Deisle = torque monster! Many V-10 trucks produce 1500 or more rwtq. Im sure a 4 banger could make at least 200

Mr.Dave
Chipped it can make about 195... I'm at 155 right now!

Well that's just bullshit.

18 wheelers make nearer to 1900-2000 lb*ft with 15-17 liters.

A-Tech
no its not, there is a HUGE diesel drag racing group I have no doubt theyve done that kinda thing.
