All of us KC area guys need to plan a drag meet out at kcir. I wish it were a little cooler, but I will still be happy to go out there and run the wagon. I'd like to make it out there this friday if they are doing the grudge night thing, and if the weather cooperates. Anybody else want to go?

I wish I could just sign up for one day of the scca finals -- the wife won't let me race both days. Either way, If the weather is good I hope to be out at kcir this friday. I'd sure like to see what your 260whp sti would run. That axis dyno reads so low, I bet that thing is a monster!

I did run it one time and I sucked! I did a [email protected] My first time at a drag strip with a full tank of gas and sub in the trunk. Since then, I have turned up the boost, removed a cat, changed the springs, removed the wing, and put in the Kartboy short shifter and bearing. I hope that I don't have to get a new turbo to hit the 12's with my "ahem" awesome 1/4 mile driving skills.

oh yeah, I bet with barely any gas that thing could rip into the 12's easily. I'm hoping/wishing with some race gas, launch control, and some tuning at the track my wagon might be able to dip into the high high high 12's. Its only "supposed" to get up to 84 this friday so it could be a good time to go! I hope some others can make it:cool:

I could get stu's car into the 12's easy. ;) I would love to go out but probably won't be able to make it. Wanna shoot for the first weekend in aug the 6th get some more people together? Oh yeah I should have my new springs next week sometime (H&R's 1.8 drop in front and like 1.2 in rear). :D I'll be needing another alignment soon I'll pm you when I get them changed out again.

I'm planning on going on the 6th. I am also going to throw up a thread on nasioc and call a few friends up as well to see if I can get a few of us. I should have my new springs this week maybe early next. :D

NO NO I said stu's car into 12's ;) Scooby24 bring her along let her drive ur car down the track a few times that would make for a fun date. Steve are you going to race your car this time? I've got a few extra helmets so don't let that stop you.

I think that I will be there. I would not count on me being in the 12's though. My form is less than stellar. I am going to use race gas this time and try to get out there with a 1/4 tank. I will pull my sub and spare as well. Shiv at Vishnu said that I should be fine if I upped the boost to 17.5 so that should occur as well.

yeah...I think my boost will be going up as well. If I can't pull off a decent 13 sec time will someone else drive my car and get me a 13 sec time slip? :sadwave:

P.S. Spoiler looks good on your car Stu! I want an sti :(

If my son goes, I won't drive. If he stays with mom, I'll race. BTW, Todd (KCREXwagon) is going to get my up/down install done this weekend. Then, reflash with the AP to Stg2!!!

Either way, I'll be there to see Stu dump his tranny...:tongue:

Up-pipes are a PITA to put in. If you need help let me know though I have an easy way to do it.

You need to be careful with your tranny. I think mine will hold up great. My rear axle might be a different story though. You will love the new up/down pipes and AP stage two. It should really "wake" your car up.

If I make it it won't be in my car....My engine just got in today and I am still waiting on my turbo and the rest of the crap. Who knows how long it will take to get everything swapped. But its all worth it in the end I suppose.

well good, I can't wait to get out there! I just bought the aquamist water injection, don't know if it will be installed by next friday though. I sure hope this cool weather holds up. See everyone out there!
