    Get some MT ET Street Drag Radials and stop messing with crap like Nitto or BFG. (Hey, I'm just guessing!)

    People have to submit their own times. There are a few people that just choose not to be a part of the list. Shawn always waits until the end of the season to give his best timeslip, dunno why.

    And they need a back up past. I was there for Ron's past & seen the slip. When I get it I will post it.

    Zman knows the rules, when he is ready he'll sent it. I think he might be waiting for a 10's slip.

    Yeah, AFAIK Tomaz 10.8 has no back-up pass because he was kicked off for having no roll protection.

    The Civic was also kicked off for having no roll protection. However, I also know that his pass is backed up before he got the boot.

    I have roll protection so I haven't been kicked off yet and I do have a back-up pass for my 11.02.

    Yeah not bad. Looks like I can do 10's even in Calgary but can definitely do them in Edmonton or Medicine Hat.

    I haven't been overly serious about running a 10, and was just frankly out to see what the car would do. I was very surprised it was as close to just "doing it" with no real practice or fine tuning. (ie, this is a canned tune ECU, no fine tune tire pressure which can be important, no two step) Just kind of went out for fun the first night for 3 passes and was happy to just have a running car! Then went back with the boost up a little to be surprised with an 11.3. Up the boost from 75% to 85% and ran the 11.02 on a good hook. Up the boost from 85% to 90% and ran 11.04 on a poor hook but with a few more MPH from the extra boost. Math says it runs 10's when you hook and have the boost up to 90%.

    But with only 2 passes last time out, and no good hook, it was nice to see an 11.04 knowing it was not ideal...

    I figure if I get the drag radial off, and put on the bias ply ET street (which I have sitting in the garage mounted) that should help the hook. Get the hook and I should get a 10 in Calgary using the same set-up.

    If not, I can...

    Take it to Edmonton where it should just run it with the same set up. (IMO)

    Or...

    Turn up the boost to 100% and just let it run the PSI it runs. Usually 26-27 and hope that is enough.

    But again, I'm not sure I'll get out again this year. I might be able to if Calgary is running October 9th. And if it is running, I'll have the Bias Ply ET streets strapped on and I will definitely be trying for the 10 since I know it's there. If not, I'll do it next year when I should have more time...to be real honest, I'm just happy I have a car that is NOT BROKEN which will be sitting in the garage this winter - and that alone might be more important than running a 10 second pass. Hahah. So maybe I should leave well enough alone and park it.

    Default time slip

    Well, the Beetle is not fast enough to compete with all the 9 and 10-second cars here, but I did finally get into the 12's at Castrol Raceway. Running Weber IDA carbs this year, but I might have to consider nitrous or a turbo next year. Ran three 12-second passes, with a best of 12.942 seconds at 104.27 MPH. Got to get the 60-foot times down for next year:
