They are fun except it is pretty hard on the car especially the tranny(02-03). I went on Wednesday nights back in the day with some of the people on the board and almost every time one of us would break something or fry a clutch.

We launch much different than other cars by slipping the clutch and then again there is Page234 who would do 7k dumps and break motor mounts lol. I will tell you one thing there are very few cars out there that can beat us in 60 feet :mrgreen: .

I've run Blue a couple times... a few years ago when I used to go out and watch the grudge matches out by Reno I got cought up and ran her for two of the evenings. I suck. Never got below 16s. But it was at 4300 feet and I'm a pussy about launching 'cause I didn't want to hurt her. Even so, like you said, I almost never got beat to the 60 and won some serious contenders since they'd just spin while I was toodling down the strip :lol:

I wish I could come and help us get this but I have already commited to the conservation meet. I think the judges should look at that :lol: scion is there having fun while subaru is out making the world a cleaner place (or at least making up for the polution they create :lol: )

FYI: we need three Subaru's to have our own class. If do not get three we will be judged with non-Subaru cars.

Three trophies are guaranteed if we have three.

I'm thinking hard about doing this... does the $25 for showing give you a test and tune (race) pass by any chance?
(and are those really only 1/8 mile?)

I don't know how Blue would show but if it covers the test and tune drags then I'd do it to just support the Suby cause... the only contingency is getting my Stage II flash done this weekend and don't know if that'll be Sat or Sun.

04-28-2011, 01:25 PM
Rules say if you show you cannot run because the judges need the cars in one place. It also says that the runs are ¼ mile on the info page. So come on out and show so Blue can have her first trophy.

KCIR is only an 1/8th mile track but they give you a 1/4 mile time as well on you slip thats calculated by by your speed, 60ft, 1000 ft time and 1/8th mile time

How come the web site and Racing boys say it is ¼ mile. The last time I raced their 3years ago it was ¼ mile

I thought maybe you were correct and they changed it because of the neighbor subdivision law suites. But then again why would you build a subdivision net to a drag strip and then complain.
