Hey D,

Looks like the bimmerforum guys are meeting on Sunday night at Hooters. I have to go to a bday party that night.

I wonder if we could get them to do it on Sunday early afternoon? I could probably sneek away for that.

BTW, how goes the project?

Poor Martin from OC. You did not do much street racing growing up, eh?

Lesson number one: On the street, there are a number of ways to start a race. One way is with a flagger. Sometime, they lift their arms in the air and drop them. Other times, they will do a point, point, raise, drop. Sometimes, a flashlight is used. And other times, the street lights are used. But in cases where one car has a power adder and the other does not, one car might get the go. Meaning the race starts when the car with the go goes (no flagger or light used).

Lesson number two: On the track, you have dial in times and the lights are set to go off at different times, depending on the dial in time. On the streets, you don't have that luxury. Sooo, space is sometimes used to make an otherwise uneven race more even. Typically, two n/a cars with similar weight, similar drivetrain, and similar tires, but where one car has a bigger and/or more powerful motor, space will be used. Same thing with power adders. One car has a turbo or supercharger and the other does not, space will be used. What do I mean by space? The car without the power adder will move up a few spaces and both cars will begin the race from their respective positions. Five to Six cars and the go is typical for an n/a car racing a power adder car, all other things being equal.

After that, it is a driver's race. Whoever launches better and hits all the gears right will win.

Sounds good to me.... I think we should all just plan on next weekend since this is short notice, and everyone that can make it this weekend we can still have us a little fun!!!

Now there's a man who has done some street racing. I love the pre-race haggling...

3 and the go right? Wait, are we talking Stage II here? I might need to run drag radials versus your regular radials. You know you are gonna get me on the big end (maybe)...

At least you have other cars to drive...:lmao:

Just kidding, I have used nitrous for years with little incident. Think of it like a gun. It is good to have, you want to avoid using it more than you have to, it is dangerous, it does require precautions, but when you really need it, you will be happy it is there.

Yeah I am not too concerned with the damages that are associated with it... I think I have grown out of the days where all you want to do is be on the juice all day just because it is there.... So hopefully with this go around I can be a little more responsible with it.... Plus if id does go then it will be time to REALLY build this S-54.....
