Default Official East v West 2008 Thread

The 2008 East vs. West Competition
This is the first year I'm handling it, and really the first time I've been involved as more than an observer, so any suggestions or criticisms are welcome. Here's the rundown:


Rules: (nicked from http://www.turbobricks.com/evw.php)
Summary
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 from our home towns. The goal is to lay down
the fastest time you can and earn points for your side spending the time you have improving your times and power output to hopefully grab the bragging rights for the following year.
So far the results have been:

2007 - East
2006 - West
2005 - East
2004 - West
2003 - East

How The Competition Works:
Turbobricks members from each side (East Coast, West Coast, or International) visit a track throughout the course of the year, record their fastest 1/4 mile time and submit it 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 laid out to provide a much larger spread than in the previous years. It should be more motivating, making even a weekend of minor modifications rewarding at the track as well as for
your team.
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 will run as a third category.

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 must include a photograph or video of your car and the score board reading your time (we can spot photoshop jobs). A time slip scan and fellow member verification can be used if
    approved.

  • Any runs made must be in the current year.

  • 1 registered run per vehicle per class. 1 turbo, 1 n/a, 1 non-Volvo

  • 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.

  • If a vehicle changes classes within the year, only the current class will be registered.

  • If a driver is disqualified from the competition, their time will remain however carry no point value for the side.

  • 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. Posting in this thread will not guarantee that I'll see your post, so it is not a guarantee of time submission - just use a PM. If my PM box is full,
drop me a line on AIM and I'll 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.


When I get your PM, if I don't have enough time at that moment to submit it to the leaderboard, it will go to the pending submissions list below.
Submissions will be run through on a first come, first serve basis.

Pending Submissions



Let's see some times!



This is just a copy and paste from last year ... so Live with it

Is there a smack talking talking thread yet? Also seems like loosing the previous year has historically been a great motivator. Will we have a 10 this year???

Thanks
Renny

My other 245 is a B21ft+NOS.... currently being assembled. I'm not expecting much out of it. Should be a fun beater though.

N2O should be in a power-adder class like all of the drag racing organizations on the planet.


My car will be on the track this year with the turbo finally.

If both of my cars make it to the track this year Hell might just freeze over, but I'm counting on it! One turbo and one NA for the West.

I'll have a turbo time in the 15s for turbo, and a NA time in the 16s, or maybe 15s if the planets align correctly, by the end of the year.

So if I get a penta block, it's a hybrid?
I mean, the blocks are identical, it is the internals (and head) that's different

Seems like the penta rule would have been created to keep people from dropping in one of the chevy versions. Only thing I don't understand is why the v8 is considered a hybrid when it is a stock car engine. That would be like saying the s40 is excluded because it is really a ford focus. Better yet nothing is considered a hybrid with non-volvo transmissions and not many of the best times would exist with that being stock. So what gives on the v8 being hybrid?

because any dimwitt can run a 13 after dropping in pappy's 5.0. Maybe cars with bigger turbos should go in the hybrid group too?
