I know I finished in the top 8 in M6 street but in the round of 8 I was going against cams and superchargers with my bolt on SS hoping they would spin the tires hard and id get a good jump lol

I will say this, my lady and I spent about 60% of our time at Fest watchin' the drag races (yeah we even watched the test 'n tune, haha). There were some great cars out there and you could see some of the more novice drivers really start to get their launches down by the end of the second day when it really counted. There were some conversations about the classes (my friend lost in the semi-finals of the NA Auto class to a car that was a full second faster than his) but with surprisingly few cars participating, if you broke it down any further some of the classes would've had two cars in it. It was unfortunate but it seemed hat the way it was set up ended up being the right way to go.

Only complaint I really have is that the supercharged 6 left all the other 6 bangers with absolutely no chance of winning whatsoever.if the 8's had a separate class for boosted cars, the 6's should've as well.

great races, tho. i was thoroughly entertained.

Pulled hard on the top end. Maybe I just need to run mile events and roll races, lol.


oh, that was you in the Z06? the first run I saw you make, you spun your tires and didn't go anywhere for a full 3 seconds straight, fnished i think somewhere around 19 seconds. 2nd run was better, you basically walked through first, then still managed to get down the track in about 13, if i recall. third run i was pretty impressed. looked like you gave the other car about a second lead cus the tree hit green and you sorta gently got it rolling, then hammered on and i believe despite the start you still got down there somewhere in the low 11s? correct me if i'm wrong. a buddy and I were tryin to figure out what the hell you were doin! traction issues is certainly a moe plausible but less hilarious explanation than anything we came up with. the car is beast by the way.very nice.

There wasn't a stock class period. I am stock and was racing supercharged cars all day.

True indeed. The closest you could get to a "stock" class was the V8 NA class, which meant any bolt on, but no super/turbo charger. With that being said, I do believe the way they did do it was the proper way to involve everyone and have enough competition in each class.

I had a blast participating and was able to get in 25+ passes throughout the two days of drag racing. Well worth my $100 fee.

Absolutely, I only planned on going Friday and not racing since I had to be home friday night. After watching about 5 runs I went to one of the great venders and bought a helmet, then of too wal-mart to buy some jeans and shoes. I made 15 runs Friday afternoon and drove the two hours home and came back Saturday morning to get in on some more fun. Its the first racing I've done in about ten years and I forgot how much fun it is.

Well, I can't say it involved everyone. I have a supercharger, but slower than 11.466 and with an automatic. I was told I could not get in a class because I was too slow for the 500 class and couldn't run in another V8 class because I was an automatic..........the classes need some work next year.

You could have ran in the 500 class. Not sure who told you no. There were 54 cars. The quick 16 cut off was 11.3. So there were plenty of cars that were in your territory.

I agree I ran a 12.08 with my ZL1 on stock tires and no way was I gonna hang with those 10 second cars, I think they need to tighten up the classes a little bit next year

LMAO yes. First run I tried to launch a little aggressively and spun 1st and 2nd, then gave up. Second run spun most of 1st, ended up 12.2 something at 126. 3rd run tried to roll on easy in 1st, the 60' still sucked, 2.4 But picked up on the big end. 11.9 at 127. I think the car could run 10's if I could get it to hook.

I'm not quite used to the clutch on this car either, it's way different than the one in my Z28 daily driver.

Getting traction in this car is hard, even on 345 wide Envo's. Need slicks for the drag strip. I've had it spin on me in 4th gear around 4000 RPM at 125 MPH on the street before

It would have been a little better for you and others that were not even close to a 9 second run if the class had been a braket race, that evens the cars up so there is not such a desparity, and everyone has a fair chance. They were going to have a braket race but after the rain there was not time for it.

Qualifying and test and tune were on Friday. Qualifying went until noon Saturday, and the rest of the day was for racing only. If you ran 11.46 then you didn't qualify for the quick 16 in the 500 class.

The other V8 class was for manual cars only, so obviously an auto can't run there.

With so many cars involved it's difficult to create too many categories, and no matter where you end up, there can always be faster cars.

This is where bracket racing comes in. You could've run in that category, but it was cancelled due to the weather.

Yeah we were wondering what happened to the awards as well. We won overall in the V-6 class and have not seen any prize money or the leader board. Keep us posted.

Thanks,

It was such a great show and a good time! Cannot wait til next year!

Thanks again,

Jesse!

It's this part I didn't understand "manual cars only"?

Thanks for explaining the classes so everyone can see I'm not just whining. I may just be the only one speaking up? I know there were 4 other cars/drivers on Saturday morning after the drivers meeting who also said they were left out in the cold because they didn't have the fastest and had an automatic.

Maybe next year we can have the quick 16 and then index the rest so everyone gets the opportunity to run heads-up against similar capable cars regardless of power adders, bolt-ons or transmission choice.

OMG...hahaha Why did they have a manual only class? skeered of those slow automatics. That doesn't look good for those all-powerful m6 cars...just saying.

Next years suggestions

Exhibition- ARH, LPE, JRE, RPM and such
V8 unlimited - anything with a TC or SC
V8 NA- pretty obvious anything goes minus power adders
V8 stock- duh lol
V6 unlimited
V6 stock
Bracket racing

Or just throw all the classes out except exhibition and V8 unlimited and make us all bracket race

The m6 street was kinda cool but if you didn't have a blower you weren't gonna get out of the top 8.
