      No it isnt all about the list but to set a goal every year and get it is a great feeling. So this year my goal is to have fun and to get on the list.

      Exactly, great post, and despite what some people think this is what its always been about...

      It'd be nice to see a MK4 make it on that list, too bad they are all heavy pigs

      Here's your mid-season topic update.

      There’s not much to report from cars in the states (from what I know). It looks like Matt Ivan has hit a few races and a lot of people are still working on their cars; Chris Alamorian is wrapping up his new build, Joe Pendergest is tuning the new 20v as we speak, Paul Kiernan’s car is coming back together, I think Jersey Ben is still building a 20v, v-dubin@120 just updated his 16v build, and it goes on. I did stumble upon a 12v from western Pennsylvania that ran a 12.99 a while back. If things come together I expect you’ll see more car’s running later in the season.

      South Africa has had some activity and there’s a new Mk1 added to the list running 11.8’s (currently #14). The car is still getting dialed in; the owner is expecting a change in ET and will send more information after the next event (should've been this past weekend). I just found a VR6 from over there who recorded a 12.808 during competition; this was from back in December and I haven’t seen much of anything posted about the car aside from previous runs. There was another 16v on the hook but unfortunately the engine had clearance issues and got damaged while on the dyno.

      I’m due to read through some of the Brazilian forums and there are still 2-3 cars that need to be mentioned on the list. I haven’t put in a solid effort to get everything together from down there, it’s mainly due to the Portuguese, but I should get around to it sooner or later.

      Damn, if I get knocked down the list any further, I'm going to have to sell my hunting and fishing gear and try building another car. I've been checking in periodically on 120's car, hope everyone gets their cars together without too many hangups.

      Well, it looks like I was mistaken and it turns out that Brad's car is actually 16v (old school) not a 20v.
      He's dropped some ET as well and has moved up a few notches on the main list.

      Hi there Billy, just thought I would drop you guys a line ... It's been a while since we last spoke but just thought I would let u know that I did a 11,57 at a street to strip event now this is not a official Msa event so it won't be recognized but like I was saying I WILL GO QUICKER ..oh yeah !!

      Cheers
      Brad (currently listed on your list as no .. Not sure.. Lol )
      Ps .. Planning to move further up the list at our next official event .

      Awesome, and good to see you posting to this forum too.

      I just updated the list.

      Also, you guys might see an 1/8 mile list posted at some point. I've come across a handfull of cars during the past few years with only 1/8 mile results mentioned due to local tracks and race series running this format. If you do the conversion (we'll use NHRA's) they would be putting up some 1/4 mile times worth mentioning.

    16. 08-22-2011 03:27 AM #506
      Just wondering if its actually comparing "apples with apples" cos for me to even attempt a 1/8 mile i would need to change a few things that would really cause some problems wrt the set up of the car...And even if you were to take a few 1/8 mile cars and get them to run the 1/4 mile even after set up i dont think that compared to the "conversion"
      method they would be running the same times as calculated ...or thats just my opinion ?
      Please correct me if i am talking "smack".....

      to edwardkriel :
      Hows that sleeper coming on ....i havent seen you at drags for a while bro.....cheers

      This would be for conversation sake and to show possible potential. I agree, a lot can happen on the top end that will affect the overall outcome and you can flip that and say the same thing about the short track. Any conversion done here would be considered a 'perfect run' and should be taken with a grain of salt. My thoughts were if a car has enough in it to record an 1/8 mile pass in less than 8 seconds it’s worth mentioning.

      Another update, Joe Pendergest drops 1/2 second at Pittsburgh; check out that mph!!
      This little truck is going to be nasty after it gets dialed in.

      Busy with a new build now that should break into the 12’s... take note I still have everything in my car Stock speakers and even the central locking still works. After I do 12’s in full trim I will be removing all access weight and put on some full sleeks to see if I can get to the top of the 8V list

      But apparently that’s not official although I backed it up @ S2S (Street to Strip) the best official time is 13.80 that I ran @ a MSA (Motorsport South Africa) event
