Why no 1/8 mi fast list for V6'ers

Okay maybe there are not all that many of us out there racing 1/8th mi tracks but I bet there are more than you think. Chase says we will have my V6 running in the 8's on the 1/8th mi track soon so if so, I'll just continue to be the SSlayer, but I still think we need a V6 1/8th mi fast list. My V6 with bolt on's trying to make a fast list with V8's with bolt ons...................well, clearly it is apples & oranges. Of course I love beating V8's on the track but I'm not delusional. Here is my fastest time slip on the 1/8th mi track.

If someone decides to start the fast list, I'll dig up the other info.

It used to be around but it hadn't been touched in about a year so the mods deleted it.

There was one but got deleted because no one was tending/updating it for some time.

There were a good many 1/8 mile slips posted and it would be nice to see a comparison for the v6 folks who can post a 1/8th mile time.

Shame.

Could maybe someone try to start a new one and manage it? I would if I knew how but I don't.

PM one of the mods for this section and ask them if we can restart it. Explain the reason the old one wasn't being updated was because the guy that started bowed out when he joined the military. I think they'll understand.

I'm sure re-opening it is not the problem but I would imagine we need to get someone to agree to manage & update it. Anyone want to volunteer????????????

I noticed the other day that it was gone too. If we can get it back, I will manage it. Heck I am doing the fast lists on the V6 site currently. Send a message to the Mods asking to bring it back and give it to me.

It was just removed as a sticky (not deleted) but a link was put in the 1/4 mile thread and someone deleted that...

To ALL,


It has returned. I now have the control of this thread and will go thru each and every post to find any that need to be brought to the front page and updated. Thank - you to all who were looking for this thread to be brought back to life.
