Yep.. new best time for me tonight:
R/T .722
60ft: 2.101
1/8th: 8.947 @ 80.138
ET: 13.847
trap: 101.170
Problem is, I broke the dogbone clean in half! http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif
The car really has the capability to go faster.. i just need to learn how to make it go faster.
I broke the dogbone on a 2.093 60 ft pass with 3 quick, massive wheel hops. Its in the shop right now, getting some warranty work done... but, i do believe that its sold. The interested buyer is coming over on Saturday to check it out. sooo... this may be the last run for Dbj.

Re: A new personal best of 13.84 @ 101.1 mph (spoolinGTI)

WOW, very impressive DBJ!
Too bad you caught a ****ty (atleast what we can say is ****ty) 60ft on that pass. Our cars are very similar. The last time at the track i believe i ran a 13.8X with a 2.17 60ft or something lol. Very similar to yours only not 101! mph. Im most impressed with that.
Congrats again.
Anything diffrent from your previous 13.8 to this one?
Drew
Also, i need a timeslip from you DBJ so i can add you to the 13secko3club. Thanks

Congrats on the timeslip Greg!
I am assuming that was with DBJ and not the GTI?
BTW I should be contacting you soon about a FM exhaust for my wife's car.

Thanks... Whats interesting is that I was breaking into the 100s with slower runs. my first run of the night was a 14.5 and a 2.7 (?!?) 60 ft time with stilll just barely breaking a 100.

thanks man... coming from you that feels good! The launches were REALLY hard because the track just didn't have any grip last night. One pass, the car would hook (and I would bog), next pass, it would just spin.. First few runs, i was peddling it just to hook up! As you can see by my trap, the HP is there... I just need to get a better launch. I personally think that the last run (the one where my DB broke) would have been lower then a 13.8 as I had a really nice 2.0 60 ft time going... it was one of those launches that you think to yourself... 'Wow.. that was gooood!'

Changes to the car... nope. Changes to my driving style... some. Changes in the weather... cooler. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif I WILL break a 13.7 before the car goes away.

Yes, with Dbj... all 90 lbs more of Dbj (then the Gti)
Very good! how is she liking the car? My wife is looking at new cars... I am quite afraid of what she wants.... hope its not a gangly SUV

quote:[HR][/HR]Congrats, nice times! Too bad about the motor mount, but at least you got a good run in.
Just playing devil's advocate, but isn't it interesting that moderators can cross post and we can't? http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=167803

You could but that would be silly and I could care less. But there is a double standard of sorts.

If you don't mind me asking, how much are you planning on selling your car? Does that mean your Greddy car is ready for use? Also I should be ordering a FM exhaust after the holidays.

GReddy car isnt ready yet. hope its ready soon tho. I have two other cars to drive.. an S-10 and a Yukon.
I put up a feeler post.. thought that $19,900 sounded good.. but, i am rethinking my figures. Thats a pretty good deal with all the stuff I have.
Just give me a call when your ready to order... I'll take care of ya. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Yeah I'm really just busting your chops. Its dark and dingy outside today. I guess that is rubbing off in my humor.

Seems like a good deal for all the stuff on the car, but then aftermarket mods never seem to have good resale when on a car.

DBJ is selling the car to a guy I work with. I introduced the two together. Hope it works out for the both of them. That is a great car. So well the next ones that come out. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: A new personal best of 13.84 @ 101.1 mph (tcrboravr6)

Alex,
Yep, DBJ is FS.
I decided to lighten my stable up a little bit. Carrying 4 car pmts is taking its toll on the ole checkbook, so figured that I had 2 dubs, might as well just have one.
Tcrboravr6,
Thanks for introducing us. Btw, tell him that the car is fine and in the dealership today, getting the issues we talked about taken care of.

Sure.. just gotta find a scanner.
Anyone local to me have a scanner so we can prove it to some 'non-believers'?

Yeah if you don't find anyone by this weekend give me a call or stop by. I may be running the ASRA event at Firebird's East Track however and I should be running the autocross on Sunday. It's a busy motorsports weekend!
