Nice races! Do you know your 1/2 mile trap speeds? I'd like to know how my car compares to yours.

How long is the track? Looked like a good time and your car held up so it was a success.

Thanks Bro. Wish you could have made it. Was so sick just seeing all the cars. Last time I had like 20 runs over two days and this time only 13 as I was just watching most of the time.

Definitely going to need to make it up there for one of these events someday.
Just to spectate was incredible!

Also looks like these events are getting bigger and bigger. Even had EAS doing a vendor tent. These event could be insanely large in the future. I could easily see vender tents, spectators, etc..
Good news is that shift sector limits it to 100 cars max per day so we can still get enough runs in. But Airstrip roll racing is surely catching on in the US. All thanks to Ryan and Jason at SS!

Best part about the ESS kits is that they are bulletproof! I can do this all day long with no issues. I think I did 23 runs one day at the Bakersfield Airstrip Event back last March. And all the track events as well. You wont regret the VT2 system upgrade.

Good to see you guys there Roman! Appreciate all the knowledge/help and the DCT GTS software. I decided to keep it...just needed to get used to things. AJ was right. I was crazy to want the stock software back lol.

We're posting our footage today, there should be a bunch of your M3 in there.
That pulley and race gas is the way to go with the 625 kit! Your shop car is a beast for sure!

Thanks for the pics they are awesome!

Looking forward to getting back out there with you for No Fly Zone 3!
Switching to an Aquamist meth system as I found out today that the Snow kit was just dumping water/meth in a non-linear fashion. So I should have another 20 HP by November which should give me a better chance of keeping up. Just don't go get headers ok?

I hear they are doing an event in the NorthEast US (New Jersey) coming up soon. Perhaps you can make that one and represent for the M3 community!

I would say he got.....

btw, the Aston is not a race car and no built motor. Car has a little exhaust work and coilovers, but stock otherwise, just has Gulf livery wrap. Owner wasn't even driving here, but still would have lost the same. He's a good friend of mine.
I kinda figured but that's what someone told me. "570" was marked on the window (representing wheel horsepower) so I assumed there was a lot more there than stock. This was the only car I ran that I didn't have info for. Thanks for the clarification and now I know why it wasn't as fast as a 570 RWHP car.

Yeah see above...that's what someone mentioned to me but obviously that was wrong

And thanks for all your help with the set up. The event wouldn't have been the same without your knowledge/expertise!

This event was only 0.42 miles from cone to cone. Best trap was 152.5. People were going from a dig from the beginning of the runway and that was a full half-mile but i didn't do that (didn't care to). I heard people were getting a couple MPH faster by going from a dig for the full half-mile. Last April at AA3 I was doing 155-156mph and from what I understand that was about 0.45 miles. So I'm not exactly sure.

Also loved how well you ran against the TT benzies and the MP4-12C. The top end pull of the S65 is something to behold.

Thanks for posting Adam! Good seeing you as always and I can't thank you enough for the 100 oct! I felt bad I was only able to get 4-5 runs in before I had to head back for the Sharks game. I thought I would get more, but there was the delay because of the Camaro crash (glad he's okay). Like I said, let me know next time you're in my area!
