    Tonights Victims (And Losses)

    GN: Very Fast GN, I screwed up my launch and launched at only 3k, he had drag radials so he hooked up right away and i lost by like half a car to a car length



    00GT with exhaust cams, Stick: Beat him by about 3 cars, had him from the start.


    Third and final race is VERRRYYYY interested
    2002 WRX With TurboXS Stage 2 kit, MANUAL WRX Vs. My AUTOMATIC

    The run down:

    He launched at 5000 RPMS
    I had a perfect brake torque to 4100, Sprayed on the launch, pulled immediately 2 cars, and continued to pull through the whole race... This was DEFFENITELY the hightlight of my night, i finally got to race a stick WRX with some serious mods (Comparible to mine)....

    All in all, im so happy with my car right now!! Automatics rool sticks drool

    Sounds like a fun evening. Impressive vs the XS stage 2 as well... although I can't imagine feeling very masculine in my WRX if I had no stick.

    Rob,

    You are forgetting that you aren't allowed to post kill stories until you GO TO THE TRACK.

    BTW, that Grand National OWNED YOU.
    He had a full tank of gas and he still kicked your ass!

    Good point, Jim. I'd forgotten about our "rule". Looks like we'll have to put you on restriction Rob. Give me you keys... I'm serious, give me you keys. GIVE 'EM TO ME! NOW!

    Rob, you durn well better get to a track soon. Why? Because when we go head-to-head in September, I will own your *ss whether you squeeze or not. Know why? Because I have 100+ trips down the track and reaction time will count.

    Start practicing now. Real drag-strips take some getting used to and it's totally different than street-racing.

    So there. Consider the gauntlet thrown.

    Yeah, I say we give Rob some "advice" for his first trip to the track. Here's my input:

    1. Yellow means "wait"; green means "go". So, at the light, wait for the three yellows, then when the green one lights up, floor it.

    2. A full tank of gas helps. Something about better fuel pressure. And you wouldn't want to run out of gas in the middle of a run, right? And since you use so much gas at the track, the cheaper the better. I hear 87 octane is cheap.

    3. Passengers are fun. The one in the passenger seat can take a video, the two in the back add, ummm, better weight distribution. Yeah, that's it.

    4. Try launching in 2nd, it might give you better trap speeds. You know, just skip that sucky first gear altogether.

    5. It gets real hot on the track (all those burnouts and stuff), so you want to leave your A/C on. It's OK, so does everybody else.

    6. Oh and don't forget the big heavy wheels. 30lb 18"ers ought to do it. Bigger, heavier the better.

    Trust me. Any other suggestions?

    haha, sounds like stellar advice. some more tips might be to have all the passengers to bring luggage with them in case they sleep over. Turn up your music really loud, because that increases Hp.
    a good way to stop after is to get your hood to open on the track while your still going fast

    here's my advice - take off your wheels so when you line up on the track you're only rolling on brake rotors - its good for your times b/c it takes off alot of weight (wheels weight 24 lbs or so) and removes alot of rotational mass. gives you TONS more hp!

    I wish I thought of something as good as that! Hehe. Plus, with taking the wheels off, you are lower to the ground so you will be more aerodynamic
