Talking AZ meet at Firebird Raceway Friday 8-25

I just wanted to get an idea how many of us are going to Firebird this Friday? It appears we may have visitor(s) from Tuscon as well as one of the world's fastest Nissan SE-R's racing that night. It would be nice to make a strong Subaru appearance.

Who's all going?

We're nearly finished with the turbocharged SVX. Looks like it'll have to be next month for the Prescott crew. Of course next month is the Forest Rally so maybe October. But then October is the fabulous West Coast meet in Las Vegas during SEMA. Hmmm - we'll squeeze it in.

Unhappy

mprezme,

Sorry to miss you again.


AZ-GT,

I was hoping to see that turbo'd SVX run.

We'll have to do this again when it gets cooler. We'll try to plan it so everyone can go.

Thumbs up

Bill,

I'm not sure how many are going yet, but I'd be happy to meet you. We're going to be at Firebird International Raceway, Friday 25th. I think racing starts at about 6:00 or 6:30 PM, but it doesn't really get going until around 7:00 or 8:00 PM.

I shouldn't be hard to spot. If there's another red Impreza there I'll be amazed.

Hope to see ya' there,

-Red

I don't think I will be able to make it. I have some dinner plans. If dinner ends early enough I will try to come by.

Have fun everyone, and don't blow any trannys on your 6k clutch dumps

Question

Kastle? Imprezme? Who am I forgetting?

Come on guys, I didn't pick the date.

AZ-GT,

Don't you have a half-dozen Subarus? Bring the Legacy Turbo. Oh, and invite Robert and those guys.


Oh well. I guess I'll see whoever shows up.

Unhappy

Red,

I'd love to go, but I've been sick since last Saturday with some sort of head cold / sinus attack. It won't go away. I missed 3 days of work this week. And Monday was the first Sick day I've take since Feb. of 98.

Make it stop.... (the cold that is).

Next time... I'll be hitting the strip.

Poped open the hood this morning to reset the tightness on my alternator belt (did the swap myself a few nights ago) and noticed I must have forgotten to tighten one of the main bolts. So instead of having 2 bolts holding each on one side, I had only one. Well I am glad I found it before I left today. I have a bolt in there now, but I dont think it is the right one. Its 6:30pm now, and even if I could leave now, it would be 8pm by the time I would show up. Anyway, the SE-R "should" still be there. It will be a 1995 Black 200sx SE. It will have wheely bars too (dont see too many FWD cars with wheely bars lol).

Sorry it didnt work out this weekend, but maybe sometime in September. Post the Timeslips on how you guys do!!!!!

Talking

Well, three of us were there. Bill, I must have missed you. I also didn't see the SE-R, but I saw some damn fast Supras (11s, 125+ MPH).

I'll post a couple of time slips as soon as I get my stupid scanner SW working.

Talking

OK, I got a couple of slips scanned in, but I can't seem to get them published to the web to save my life.

Oh well,

Here's a few interesting times:

My ETs: 16.378, 16.368, 16.323, 16.275
My Speed:81.88, 82.17, 80.33, 82.46
My best reaction time: .523

(I'd post others, but I've only got my slips.)

Best run by an Impreza: 16.192 @ 83.35 mph

(I've got that one, because it was me he beat.)

The kicker is, it wasn't its owner driving. It was a wanna'be who regularly kicks our butts in our own cars. The nerve!

Well, it was a lot of fun. Too bad so many of you missed it. Next time, let's pick a day that more AZ people can make it.

Later,

-Red

This is from the wanna be. GOD that was fun. When I finally get my turbo, I will let all who have been nice enough to let me try their cars, try mine for a few runs. Bruce, if you read this, sorry for the faster time......NOT. Thanks anyway. It was a blast. Hope everyone shows for the rallycross.

Bill,

We don't go every Friday, but Firebird has the "Friday Night Drags" almost every Friday during the summer. However, I think their schedule is about to change. They're heading into season. Check out www.firebirdraceway.com.

Man! I thought I was up too late. Get some sleep.

Were you there? Did we miss you? I don't think you could have missed us. Me and Imprezme (white RS W/wing & lowers) sat at the launching pad for 5 minutes while they cleared something from track and the announcer talked crap about our cars. He tried to tell everyone that all Subarus came with an aligator in the trunk (Crocodile Dundee joke, I guess). I tried to tell everyone it was actually an STmi monkey, but nobody could hear me.

It was a lotta' fun. I look forward to the rallycross.

Later,

-Red

Here's a sample of a couple of time slips.

I've been wanting to make a trip to Sedona and get some pictures of the Sedona Red Pearl RS with the Sedona mountains in the background. Maybe we could get a decent sized group up there.
