      Running 10's on 430hp is pretty crazy!

      the car runs that hp on the street. on race file its completely different. it runs 10.8 and traps low to mid 130's. he has put a lot of coin into the car and i have no reason to doubt it especially after seeing it launch from a dig. traction is a beautiful thing.

      on another note, my missfire problems have been solved. ended up shaving the powdercoat off of the valve cover where the nuts go to improve the ground which immediately turned off my engine light. then after that i found out that the gap on the plugs (denso ik22's) was entirely too big. at a .030 pre-gap the spark was getting blown out before fireing. regapped them to .024/5 and i can say that the car hasnt felt this powerful EVAR11!11!!!1111.

      thanks thomas for thinking out of the box on the valve cover and again for the insight with the denso's.

      Glad to hear that it was a relatively simple issue. Never woulda figured a powdercoat would cause condutivity issues.

      You guys should throw together a charity drive. Whether it be a canned food drive, or a money fundraiser for an organization like the Hawaiian Humane Society. I organized one of these last year back on Whidbey Island. Had a pretty decent turn-out, and gave the vw/audi community a different perpective when looked at from the eyes of the locals... That is just my 2¢

      Check out the last page on that link. There was an article about that cruise in the local paper. After that, we had no problems finding locations for weekly/monthly GTGs. Businesses were offering their lots as well as special pricing on food when we had our GTGs there.

      TFO did a beach clean up many years ago, and the turn out was pretty decent. WE had a few Food Drives/ and always donated the canned goods (from our shows) to the Hawaii Foodbank! You will find that the Hawaii scene is nothing like the Mainland.... Majority of the Euro Scene here is pretty much laid back and pretty much everyone knows each other. Thats why I will never leave the Euro Scene

      I trust in my FAMILY to come out w/another hard hittin event. This is what WE live for...... Cruising/Chillin/talking stories/taking PRIDE in our rides/& living the same dream!!!! AuRyTe, Gonz

      Sounds good. It is good to hear that clubs/groups are willing to give up their time for the community. Looking foward to actually being a part of one of these events.

      Yeah I get that a lot. Its all under the hood and in the interior. If you can't reconize simple european mods, like most, then the car gets overlooked.

      Its no show car, but does tend to do decent in it's class.

      Mine was out there for about a month. Filthy is an understatement.

      Anyone know where to get some distilled water? Couldn't find any at Walmart.

      $1 for a gallon at target or you can try Long's, but it costs more there. Should have just given you a gallon as I have about 10 of them in my garage.

      I am guessing this Island is on well water. Washed the car for the first time and damn the calcium spots! Might need to get a few gallons myself!

      Anyone down for a free photoshoot this weekend? Wifey is coming in on Monday so I am trying to make this weekend go by quickly. You pick the location. Preferably within 30 minutes from Ewa Beach. Check my Flickr in my sig for examples of my previous shoots.

      Anyone down for a free photoshoot this weekend? Wifey is coming in on Monday so I am trying to make this weekend go by quickly. You pick the location. Preferably within 30 minutes from Ewa Beach. Check my Flickr in my sig for examples of my previous shoots.

      Sounds good! Just need to PS my car and make it look lower.
