Import Survival Series "Comments"

Alright guys, today was a fucking blast. We got a good turn out and it seems every time we meet, theres always new faces, but unfortunately everyone cant come every single time so its always only like 10-12 cars when we could get like 20 if everyones schedule could fit the certain meet dates. Anyways i cant wait till the meet at the mall up in N.Y. and im sure it will be a big turnout. Post your comments about how Import Survival Series was.... Later

oh yeah marc make cheesecakes next time :wink:
Yea seriously...cookies? You should cook us a dinner next time :wink:

Anyway, I had a fun time finally getting my car to the track. Can't say i'm too happy with the times but tomorrow i'm calling Mo to see about their shift kit or valve body. There's no way i'm gonna put in a headgasket, and return fuel system and raise boost when my car can't even shift at it's current power level.

I know if my car was shifting perfectly I would have had mid 13 second times.

I had a great time though! My head kinda hurts though from all the days activity and drone on the way back home :lol: Nice seeing new faces and revisiting others. I have a video of my 13.9 run and some other peoples runs which i'll try to get up tomorrow cause i'm tired as hell now.

Marc - I know you got a lot of footage, can't wait to see it.

Let's post pics!

I lent it to Danny, then he handed it back to me before we did the roll out...i'm guessing I must have put in my backseat, but its not there, and its missing...oh well, if it turns up, let me know....thanks guys!

We tried to get to the pits, but they wouldn't let us with a pit pass.... :pissed: no vendors to bargain with so we watched a little from the stands. Saw a few of you run, but we couldn't stay too long. Glad to see something other than those damn Civics on the track... :lol: :lol:

Yea Mr.Mark - I definately want to see your Is300 mr. im on the coverpage of turbo magazine.... hopefully by next spring or maybe at our next meet which is going to be sometime either the first or second week of december.

Marc, the last time I remember seeing your helmet was when danny, got done using it after his last round... and he started to hand it to me, and then passed it to you... remember jturk when we were laugin about it becuase it looked like I was helping him hold it or something lol. Other then that, I dont recall what you did with it.

I'm telling you though - the sooner we can get that date set up for the next meet up in Palasades or however you spell it the better, to give people a heads up. Alright guys im out, im so fuckin tired... and post those pics and vid's within the next couple days.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

I knew there was a secret raffle i had no idea about. I won a semi-new motorcross helmut. NICE colors too. Blue and white and black. I guess danny put it in my car after his race. since theyre very similar from the side.

marc how did you do??? any pics guys??good first round wins for the guys who won...what were the times??
I got a 13.9 and 14.0 for my two best times. I guess it's not that bad considering it was only my second time ever at the track...and the first time I went I only got one run stock.

But you REALLY do not want to know some of the other times I got. It's embarassing :oops:

If only my "fucking car shifted!" I would have been able to dig deeper into the 13's...most likely mid 13's. And wouldn't have gotten these purely shit times.

I can only assume it is an auto eh..
Yep, an auto with no valve body upgrade or anything. The shifting was so horrendous that in one run I was bouncing of the redline in first gear so I let off the gas, got back on again, but it continued to redline on first, so I let off AGAIN, and it finally shifts to second. When second gets to redline it starts bouncing. So I have to let off yet again, and then get back on it and it shifts. Needless to say, I got a time that was worse than my stock run.

Looks like i'll be getting a valve body upgrade afterall....ugh

yeah, I am still pissed..... :x

after a 15.78 1st time trial run....at 11am and 44 degrees out...I expected to do better for my 2nd, with a warmer track, and ready to rock for the 1st round....but NO....

dumb fucks broke down on the track, 1 went the whole length spilling oil, closed the track 2 time for 40 min each......thus, no 2nd time trial.....

so, I dialed in at 15.65 for first round, and knew from past experiance, I better try and get close to it.....

so.....ran a 15.649

:crazy:
