Default Official East v West 2011 Thread

The 2011 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:

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

2010 Thread
2009 Thread
2008 Thread
2007 Thread
2006 Thread
2005 Thread
2004 Thread
2003 Thread

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 , it will go to the pending submissions list below.
Submissions will be run through on a first come, first serve basis.



Let's see some times!



This is just a copy and paste from four years ago... Rules stay the same, as does the Game



Mods Can I get a sticky and Please un-stick the 2010.

Leader board this year will be a simple excel that I will update and post capture of to keep track. Rough but works until Adrian gets his pimp board working again.

I will find time and go though the thread and make a list of what is in the thread, if someone wants to submit 2010 times I can also update that list and get what I can from it.

The Host it was on took a dump and we lost a bunch of data which sucks. This way posts will be in the thread and then I will have it on PC and internet so less chances of losing data

Submitted. No shots of the car or the board but there were plenty of TB witnesses.

Get an exhaust! Missing some power in that thing, or just pulling a lot of weight?

Can't wait for the tracks to open up here!

i still think you should be able to submit multiple cars, if you put the money for multiple fast cars(which very few do), and take all of them to the track, they should all count

Agreed. You can't currently? Does anyone know the reason for this rule?
I would think a guy with a racecar and a quick daily should be able to submit both.

Our track is closed, out of business, kaput. I think the next closest track (which is months from being open anyhow) is maybe an hour and a half away. meh.

I think you should be able to run multiple cars in one class as the goal is to get as many volvos out there. One quick way around this is have some one else take your second car down the track
