My team and myself arrived at 7:15am at the K&N Engineering facility in Riverside CA on June 3rd, 2004 to embark on an adventure that we will not soon forget. We pulled in, everyone had their duties in hand and proceeded to do the final detail on the car. Twenty minutes later, we unloaded the spotless car off the trailer and parked it where we were instructed. Once checked in and unloaded, we visited with everyone who was not too busy and tried to get a feel of how the day would wrap up. Mattís Supra parked next to our trailer. The car looked good, clean and ready to compete. Same story with the Skyline. At this point, I figured I was in for a 5th place finish right after the Skyline, supra, Sparco and Buschur Evo VIII cars.

About 9:00am, the drivers meeting was called. They explained how the event would run and announced the points that had already been won for base price. I ended up with 2nd place against the turbo Miata. At that point, they announced that they were ready to start the competition with the dyno. I quickly offered to run first since I was 100% ready and wanted a chance at the coolest air to put down my numbers. To my surprise, I put down 441hp, 448tq. This would ultimately get me a solid 4th place after the skyline, supra and to my surprise, the HPA R32 Volkswagen! I scored 2nd place in the overall power under the curve, second only to the Supra.

At this point, I realized that I had overlooked a very stock looking car that had some serious engineering talent behind it. Since this whole competition was a good portion about the driver, I decided to just leave the car alone and not touch it. I had completed tuning earlier that week and made myself a deal to not touch it for the whole event. I chased down granny and the guy doing drivability evaluations. After these evaluations, the car show judges checked out the car and ranked it 2nd against the Sparco Evo. Needless to say, I was very pleased as I felt all the other cars attending were nearly equal in the show. The day unfolded with no unusual activity, everything going as planned we had a drivers meeting and were updated on the current points spread. Fuel economy wrapped up the day and we proceeded to top off the tank and seal the fuel caps. Roughly 71 miles later, I turned in a solid 43mpg. My next nearest competitor was around 30mpg. The Miata should have won, but he drove an extra 20 miles due to being lostÖ

Friday, we met at the drag strip at LACR and started the drivers meeting about 9am. We were explained the details and had a couple of practice launches to test everything. Drag race shook down with me being in 4th place for the ¼ ET and a clear first in the 20-100mph. ETís were about 1 second slow per the fastest car that was on his home track. I guess the testing equipment doesnítí measure the distance exactly with just the radar gun. *shrug* Iíll sort that out in the next couple of weeks at the local track. Braking test, 60-0 I scored 99.29í. Iím still waiting to see if this is a Sport Compact Car record or not. They think itís tied with last yearís viper, or very close. Weíll see. At this point, we review scores again. Everyone, including me, was totally stumped by the numbers thus far. We eat lunch and head to The Streets at Willow Springs. 1.021 on the skid pad leaves me with an acceptable place in the rankings. We then finish the road course and gross display of Horsepower.

Points are scored, event is over, we take our last photos and head to the awards banquet. I wontí reveal the scores of the whole contest, but I ended up with the following places:

Base Price: 2nd
Show: 2nd
Peak HP: 4th
Under the curve HP: 2nd
Granny: 4rd
Driveability 3rd
Guru 4th
Emissions: 5th
Fuel Economy 1st
Drag Race: 4th
20-100: 1st
Braking test: 99.29í 1st place J
Skidpad: 3rd place tie
Gross display of HP, 1st place tie:
Road track: Not sure, I didnítí ask. I putted around the course with the AC on and just went for a nice leisurely drive J


Okay, so Iím sure you are all now asking.. Where does this leave you overall? Since I really donítí like to toot my own horn, Iíll quote Josh (SCC guy in charge of organizing this). I quote Josh: ďJust so you guys know, you got your asses kicked by a home built 13 year old car. Brad could have gone home and not finished after LACR and still won the contest.Ē

I was awarded 1200 points total for this event. From my understanding this is the highest number of points accumulated by one car in this contest thus far. 2nd place was 238pts away from my score. 2nd through 7th place was separated by 20pts. Needless to say, the road course competition was very entertaining.

There's nothing more annoying than posting a picture that is so wide I can't read the whole thread on the screen.

MR2 PRIDE! Stolen from the forums




First of all, I must say that this was the easiest race event I have ever attended. We relaxed, had a great time and only got dirty when we wanted to. I met some very talented tuners and no less than 200 very nice people.

My team and myself arrived at 7:15am at the K&N Engineering facility in Riverside CA on June 3rd, 2004 to embark on an adventure that we will not soon forget. We pulled in, everyone had their duties in hand and proceeded to do the final detail on the car.
