Considering that on west track you get in a run every 5 minutes for 6 hrs, if your not just hot lapping the entire time...  Yes

Lol david! Its crazy how many runs you get in! Last time we were both out you got at least twice as many runs as me, but I only do two or three runs before I let my car chill for a min. West track is awesome for its layout and the low wait times. Remember the 30min wait times on main? Half the nissans were already overheating lol!

main sucks for that very reason.   my car is a trooper and will run until i'm out of tire or out of fuel...  fix that and she want's back out lol.
Title: Re: 2012 Drift n Drag Dates
Post by: Hackeduphachi on May 10, 2012, 05:44:18 PM
Haha everytime I fix it I brake something else on it. Hopefully I will be back out soon, she's already mad as hell!

For D&D?  Bwahahahsgahaha. Yes.

But to be on the safe side, tape your positive terminal.  Other organizations may say otherwise.

 Yes the dd, I was thinking it needed to be in a enclosed box ? Anything elsa I should check on the car?

Post by: FATagent on August 06, 2012, 09:58:40 AM
When I went through tech  there biggest concern was my battery tie down and to make sure I wasn't dripping fluid on the track since I don't have a coolant overflow. There's a good thread on AZ240 that gives a basic tech guideline to follow. I'll try to find the page.
Title: Re: 2012 Drift n Drag Dates
Post by: SidewaysEightSix on August 06, 2012, 11:21:09 AM
working seat belt, good helmet (snell 2010), good windshield, no obvious fluid leaks, battery secure (yes ratchet straps work for D&D) valid drivers license, and thats about it.

Please don't tell me you paid that.... They tried to do that crap to me with my truck and I refused to pay an amount I was not told it was going to be. He called in and got it approved asap.

Bringing the car down for the winter. Hopefully I make it.

Title: Re: 2012 Drift n Drag Dates
Post by: Dubsky on December 02, 2012, 10:13:06 PM
Fuck, got changed to a night event. Same tracks as last event but will probably run west clockwise this time. Tracks hot around 7, gates are suppose to be open at 5.
Title: Re: 2012 Drift n Drag Dates
Post by: Dubsky on December 05, 2012, 08:55:47 PM
Correction, I guess track should be hot at 6ish. Not like any of your are driving and it's the weekend so there's no/less rush hour.

2012 schedule in case someone grows some balls and/or makes some money =P

1/4 Drag and Drift

1/25 Drag and Drift

1/27 Import FaceOff Drifting Competition hosted by Trial By Fire

2/1 Drag and Drift

2/9-2/10 XDC

3/8 Drag and Drift

3/16 NASA Night Event (West and Skidpad)

I'm aiming to drive one of the march events, maybe sooner if there's a day on west.
But best to be realistic. David hurry up!

I drag.  But speedworld is sooo much closer to me than Firebird.

Once I get my mods done, I'll go to Firebird once in a while.

Hopefully get some runs in before it closes... sniff...

Cardinal stadium?  They have auxilliary parking lots without light poles and plenty of room.  Somebody call Bidwill.  Have their people call my people and make it happen.

That's where I had my first "drift event". The aux parking lot by Kellis High has only been used once. Ever.  And that was the Super Bowl.   

The problem tho is there are houses and apartments all around those lots.

lmao i wish it were that easy. it just suck that when the 20v is back on the road that firebird will be gone. but sliding at the stadium would make for some very epic pics. lol

Post by: Dubsky on December 06, 2012, 08:29:12 PM
Firebird isn't closing for certain yet. The Indians what to try and run it.
When they fail they will close it haha. Probably build another golf course/hotel.
I hope they succeed though. Firebird definitely knows drifting has high driver attendance and WAY higher spectator attendance then dragging and even some road racing on a similar level.
Obviously top fuel is their bread and butter but other then that weekend dragging isn't as appealing as cars sideways on fire.
Honestly just like PIR is open for NASCAR only, firebird can just be open for top fuel, boat racing, off road, and bonderaunt. Cut the smaller organizations out.

And trail by fire has tried just about every place in the valley for events. You are going to have to go to Tucson or further if firebird closes _

I want to move to Washington so bad because of this.  There are some awesome events in the PNW.

^^ that's my plan.
The 240 is almost ready for sliding just need to finish my dual caliper setup and get wheels
Title: Re: 2012 Drift n Drag Dates
Post by: Dubsky on December 07, 2012, 01:17:07 PM
Why do you need a dual caliper set up.... Unless you can use third or are at a go kart track you don't even need a handbrake.

I use third. And since my situation makes it so I can't go to the track till I move out makes sense to build my car before I go drifting again.

I was hoping to, but family obligations have kept me from working on the car for the last couple of weeks, and it's not ready.

Maybe by the end of this weekend... but not now.
