Everytime I hear about a track day I get giddy and sad at the same time

I'm still working on the beetle, but will see if I can convince my brother to bring down his RS4 for the day.

BTW, who owns the Boxer AG "Fastest Man Alive" trophy ? I need to make eventual arrangements to have my name permanently engraved on that thing

How fast does you car go on jack stands Sandeep?

It's probably still faster than mine lol (mine's on stands right now too!) Although, once I've cut my pushrods to length I'll be bolting my fresh 2110 in!

I'm very interested in a lapping day Chris! There are a few issues I want to hammer out first before I commit to it. Basically I want to be sure that I take the trophy first try

Well it looks fast sitting there

I'm mocking up the rotating assembly right now, getting close to the short block stage. Let the trash talking begin !

No trash talking here.......... Just FACTS!

Question: Who
-drove their car to the track and then home again?
-spent the day lapping the track till dusk? - not just watching
-pulled away from a 911SC, lap after lap?
-all with a 1600dp

Answer: ME!!!



I believe the trophy resides with a light standard bug with a big Type4, and big brakes. Too bad i was only a couple seconds slower on the 1 lap with the heavy ass super and 1600dp as the clock was running.

In the fall the '52 will be on the track with a NA carb'd 2275. Bring a notepad, you'll need it to take notes.

Chris if you want to do something soon, i want to run my TDI Golf. Gotta put the big brakes, peloquin diff, coilovers, and tune to the test. Let me know.

Pete

My 2nd SHO Taurus will be ready for the track in a few weeks. The engine kakked in the $900 car that I had bought 18 months ago. So rather than spending money trying to fix a complicated Yamaha engine, it was easier to get another whole car off kijiji for $700, and swap the suspension and brakes in to the "new" car.


cheers
Ed N.
