      We had one over in the PNW and as long as the drama stays out of it, which I don't see much of around here, it should keep going.

      Yeah, we have these in the PNW forum and they can make it up to 1000 pages sometimes! Not quite a scene here though.

      Ahhhhhhhhhhh, the W/M kit is missing the windshield washer tank adapter.

      I guess no W/M this weekend. Might have to go get more race fuel. LOL

      That's right, you were talking about that Friday. Might have to go out there and shoot the event.

      Track or no track, being on the ready is always good. You never know some deuce-bag needed to be showed.

      PS
      I'm not advertising racing, just saying that we all have that special instinct. In that note also, be safe out there.

      And maybe some video. This was a two day event at Roebling Road. Almost 4 tanks of gas and about 100 laps.

      I raced him, but he was so far ahead he did not notice.

      That white STI is a beast. If there was a track in the island it would be hard for any street car to keep up. It does have a lot of money invested into that engine/transmission/suspension though. I think he mentioned the engine alone was $11k.

      With that type of money you can build anything though. Just check out USP Motorsports' 605whp MkV GTI: http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=4138047.

      Damn! $11K! That's like a down payment for a house! Did he say how much horses he got on that thing?

      It was good meeting you as well. Dave and I tried to go follow everyone, but we got caught up at a couple lights and everyone was gone.
      That subie sounded pretty beastly though!

      I heard the guy claiming high 10's to low 11's. Either way, those are impressive numbers.

      Just got done doing the DSG oil change. Had to go all the way to Sears to find a 14mm hex key. A little messy but a rather easy process. Next change at 50k miles.

      10.9@135mph on race gas. He said that the car made 430HP on the dyno at RMS with pump gas.

      Running 10's on 430hp is pretty crazy!

      135? Damn that is 10sec territory. That car must weigh next to nothing. I believe the guy said it was built to go straight for the most part.
