The 2017 East vs West Competition.
Rules: (nicked from http://www.turbobricks.com/evw.php)
The "east vs. west" shootout was created by Pat D. (tuff240) to help motivate the group by creating a friendly yet competitive event we could all participate in from our home towns. The goal is to lay down the fastest time you can and earn points for your side. Report the results of your efforts to improve your times and power output to hopefully grab bragging rights.
So far the results have been:

2016 - West(Volvo power) East(Hybrid). I will break the tie. Because of some really fast times the overall win goes to East!
2015 - West
2014 - ??
2013 - ??
2012 - ??
2011 - East
2010 - West ( I know broken board but at the time West was way ahead and East lacked submissions)
2009 - West
2008 - West
2007 - East
2006 - West
2005 - East
2004 - West
2003 - East

How The Competition Works:
Turbobricks members from each side (East Coast or West Coast) visit a track throughout the course of the year and record their fastest 1/4 mile time. Submit your 1/4 mile time to the contest admin. The idea is to work on your cars performance
throughout the year, returning to the track, grabbing more points, and updating your time.
The points scheme is like this:
0 - 9.99 = 100
10.00 - 10.99 = 90
11.00 - 11.99 = 80
12.00 - 12.99 = 70
13.00 - 13.99 = 60
14.00 - 14.99 = 50
15.00 - 15.99 = 40
16.00 - 16.99 = 30
17.00 - 17.99 = 20
18.00+ = 10 participation points, everyone gets a ribbon.

Each side is divided up into 3 classes of cars, Turbocharged, Normally Aspirated, or "Hybrid" - a non-Volvo powered Volvo. Essentially there are now 3 competitions running simultaneously per side. Each class is equally important since the final victory in that class holds 1/3
of your sides total wins.
At the end of each year all the points are tallied up for a final count in each vehicle class. The side with the majority of class wins is declared victorious and thus has the bragging rights for the next year.

The Split:
Please verify the side you are grouped in by state. The states are grouped as evenly as possible by member representation. The west gets Hawaii, the east gets Puerto Rico. If we have forgotten or over
looked any other represented US, Canadian, or Mexican governed land masses please let us know so we can assign it a side.
Countries outside of North America please send times. I can start tracking an international category if we get some participation.

Rules for Competitors:
  • Be mature, no cheating/bending rules, and no complaining. This is for fun. If you cheat, you're out.
  • Your time submission should include a photograph or video of your car and the score board reading your time. Also a time slip photo and or fellow member verification can be used if approved.
  • Any runs made must be in the current year.
  • 1 registered run per owner/vehicle combo, so send me the fastest run you have. That's the one I'll record. If you own 2 turbos, I'd love to see the data collected for both.
  • If a vehicle is sold to either side, points remain until new owner beats the standing entry and the previous time and points are removed.
  • If a Driver moves sides, points remain until driver runs at new location and previous points are removed.
  • All runs must be made at an official timed 1/4 mile drag strip. Estimates from 1/8th mile tracks, self timing, or non sanctioned timing devices are not allowed.

How to Submit a Time
Submitting a time is as simple as dropping me a PM, or posting in this thread. Posting in this thread will not guarantee that I'll see your post, sometimes I'm busy and get behind reading. So follow with a PM too. If my PM box is full someone can surely email or catch me on facebook so that I can clean it out.

I will need the following things from you for a verified submission:
  • Board Username
  • Car Model
  • Brief (A paragraph or two) Description of your Vehicle
  • Location (East, West, or International) and Class (Turbo, N/A, or Hybrid)
  • A Scan of your timeslip, for verification purposes. Either circle your number on the slip, or (better!) include a photo of the car with the numbers on it.

So get wrenching and racing! I think we have some fast passes in the works this year. I know there are a couple running swap cars that didn't run last year.

Probably not ready until late 2017. But should be good for 10s eventually.

gsellstr 01-04-2017 10:41 AM

I think you're missing a little.....car....in that pic, but I like where that is going!

Hoping for 12's, should have the head installed spring 2017, MS hopefully not long after, once it's thru smog next month, then I'll send this current trans out in a blaze of glory, it has served me remarkably well. :)

linuxman51 01-04-2017 10:44 AM

Tuff240 01-04-2017 01:21 PM

Would be nice to try the slicks this year before they dry rot and see if I can get closer to 13.0. Maybe my son can take his +t out there assuming we finish it.

qwkswede 01-04-2017 08:00 PM

Here is an event where you can race in January. In Tuscon AZ.

Some Volvo peeps are going.

qwkswede 01-04-2017 08:01 PM

MrBrown 01-04-2017 08:21 PM

I might know a guy...

haltechsupra 02-19-2017 03:10 PM

If I play my cards right, I *may* Participate in this .

MDVLN 02-19-2017 03:15 PM

Well I didn't want to bring anyone's attention to it, but with the recent roadkill event, so far the West has the lead with "hybrid" power technically... Though those participants have not sent their times in yet... :ninja:

linuxman51 02-22-2017 05:35 PM

wouldn't take much at the moment ;)

EricF 03-04-2017 08:34 AM

Always bugged me the west coast gets a cool nickname, and east coast is just the east coast. How about "Eazy East" or something cool.

I should be contributing again this year, first time in half a dozen or so.

MDVLN 03-04-2017 01:15 PM

Beast Coast

linuxman51 03-05-2017 10:14 PM

RoadRacer4Life 03-06-2017 11:39 AM

SenseiRice 04-18-2017 09:43 AM

As long as I can run a sub 20 second pass I'll be happy lmao

gsellstr 04-18-2017 10:35 AM

Head is swapped on. Just need to get some times on the current setup, then MS and tune, see how long this AW lives, suspect it won't be long.

qwkswede 04-18-2017 03:09 PM

DAMN! Drag racing season is here. I see I missed a couple. Let me get you guys added to the list....

CAPT_BLOTTO 04-18-2017 03:20 PM

If I live in the East side but compete in the west, which side do I go in?

I.E. I live in Kansas City but the closest track is in Wichita or Topeka.

cosbySweater 04-18-2017 03:35 PM

I'm going totry and hit the test and tune during the Davis weekend and see how slow the 244 is

gsellstr 04-18-2017 03:58 PM

Hmm, might be game to join you Erik. What day are you shooting for?

qwkswede 04-18-2017 04:40 PM

Slow? I thought those cars were supermodified?

qwkswede 04-18-2017 04:42 PM

Hm :e-shrug: The obvious answer is Westside! But I'll let you pick your allegiance.
