Awww Come On...you've already won us over [Image: smile.gif]

(Should I mention the 100hp NOx shot I have hidden ???? Just kidding...).

Seriously, I don't know what to expect from my TC. But really like to have fun with it...win loose or draw...it will be a blast.

will agree there Dan... I don't know how my new cam is going to work out but I will be selling the old one... specs on the old one are as best I can tell [email protected], .500+ lift, 112-114 lob sep, .06I .08E lash(mech roller), and runs best at 15BTC. I could send it off to a friend and he could get me exact specs but will take time.

*note* cam alone is for sale, make me an offer and most importantly... if you buy this... you had better make sure that you want it because you won't be able to use a hyd. roller cam in your head again because of the way that the manual lash adjusters go in (I was saddened when I found this out due to me having an esslinger head, so I got a close lash grind cam)

I am not really in favor of a "kills" section. It brings out all the people with their "I just beat a Viper in my 87 A4LD TC that has only a K&N and no cat" crap. Maybe a section where people can post their time slips??

I agree with Jeff. It would be real informative to hear who is running how fast with what, and to gauge improvements (or not) after changes are made.

I definitely agree with Jeff K. I haven't seen anybody on this message board that I would suspect of "abusing" the privelege to write about his racing encounters, but the possibility still exists. I've seen several other message boards go under because of such lame stories. In the meantime i think we could always consider it an experiment and just post whatever we'd like about racing on a separate thread. if things get out of hand, it could always be shut down. just my 3 cents (as opposed to everybody else's 2 cents)
