      That is bad ass, I really liked those smaller 205's.
      I would love to see some 12's on that tire.

      Nice. How did that 5/5250 drop treat you?
      I see you snapped one though...

      I will get this updated after I get the run down on Chris's numbers.
      Still need to file in the rest of those SA 4 cylinder cars too.

      I was usually around high 4's/5 , and it worked really well...spun a little. I know i was at 5 grand and with less air pressure, and fresh vht when i snapped the short axle though.

      What did you have them aired down to? Suck about Paul's set up, I really wanted to see him hit the ground running at this event. It's tough rolling into an actual race with things being different.

      He is taking a hiatus from racing and back in school. Your best bet to track him down would be to contact Anthony (screen name: 95GLX). Anthony has had the most recent contact with him, and may be able to help you out.

      This list is world wide, I try to find as many cars as possible no matter where they are located. That's a good point though, maybe I should list location so we know what country.

      Big congrats on that one! I didn’t know it was still BOTI weight, that’s great. It will go 12.7’s as is, and that is where I always thought it should’ve been. Hell, maybe quicker as you haven’t addressed a request that I’ve been making. You can still drop weight if needed, and you have the different cams. The pistons are already cleared to run them.

      Two other N/A list related things, just realized I had to update and retire Joe’s ABF.

      Also, in a recent conversation with a ghost…
      Anyone here remember Nate’s Corrado making passes with the 8v in it?

      Thanks I didn't want to change anything after IMSTAR just in case. I do have to do that thing that you want me to do. Soon too now that there's a spare..

      Anyone got any updates, and or who will be out on Sunday?
      I know a full weight, stock trans, street tire car hit the track for the first time last night.

      I'll be at my track on sunday, with great weather and the crew from Hot VW's, woohoo!

      Wanted to get some lexan installed before this race, but I've been too busy. There's always off season test and tunes.

      the the thread is called "Naturally Aspirated Top 1/4 Mile List." but yet i only see the FWD times where is the AWD love. you has none? Just wondering. I dont even own a awd car. I just know there is some guys around here running quick N/A awd Bill(climbingcue) is one to mention. I gues they gotta submit times huh?

      Yes, on the NASA VW drags. Hopefully I'll get a little blurb, since I'm now a sponsor too.

      I know of Bill, Anthony and a few others... but yes, this is, and always has been a FWD list.

      This has been mentioned in the past, and I would welcome someone to start an AWD list (thought there was one in a car or engine forum?). I guess I should try to get that put back in the title, or at least go back and make it clear in the first post again. Nothing against any of it all, they're just a different beast all together.

      Only update I have is I am still looking for second gear. Made some mods to the gearbox to get it to shift better and I guess they didn't work out. At least now I know.

      On the bright side I did go 13.20@106.25mph (84.60mph in the 1/8th) with a whopping 2.1 60ft today on the 205 bfg's. Had a 1.92 60ft on my first pass but couldn't find second. The mph is there I just have to get a couple more clean passes in to get the et to come around.

      11.82@113 First and only All Motor 12v Street Car in the 11' s

      Hey, I tried this once, so did Killacoupe.
      Now a topic mod is on board with the idea of a N/A specific forum, and trying again:

      http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=4087380

      We have one vote for 'No' already.

      People should pick a forum or two and spread the word, see if it actually happens this time.
