Yeah it's easier just to print and then do the tech inspection maybe the day before the event. I would highly doubt there's anything to write on when you get there except your car.

Yea it slips a little in 5th and 6th when meth is spraying, but if I let off for a second it will grab and hold sort of haha. Yea it's the original oem clutch and I have 58K on the car.

The car is getting dropped off at the dealer on Monday. I am trying to have them replace the clutch with another oem one for free under my extended service warranty. They say that 1 clutch replacement is covered so I hope they hook me up. I'm just worried they wont replace it yet because it is not really slipping in valet mode. If not I will just rock it and beat on it some more at the air strip until it really is slipping. Then they will have no choice.

I will be driving from the SF Bay area and probably wont get there until later in the night. I will stop and pick up some meth the week before the race. We will have a lot of cameras so this event will be well filmed. I am trying to convince Rob@Vishnu to head down with me on Friday night in his Vette.

Looking forward to results and video.

BTW, don't forget to bring your gas masks. It's supposed to be a nasty smelling town!

That is what I was told when I bought the car CPO. I am holding it to them and brought that up yesterday when I was talking with my SA. So I guess we will see what happens.

I will prob bring 1 drum of race gas and 1 drum of meth. So no I don't think that is too much. I figure the drum of meth is 5 gallons and that should last 1 day I assume.

What about you track guys how much meth do you go through in a average track day?

I think 5 gallons of meth is great if you wanna share with us! No seriously you aren't going to be flooring the car for that long. Maybe 15 seconds each run as we are starting from a roll and so a half mile will come pretty quickly. And we will probably do 10-15 runs I'm guessing. I really don't think you are going to need more than what's in your windshield reservoir, unless you do some spirited pulls on the drive there and back. I might bring one or two gallons extra.

At the first shift sector track event, I ran WOT for 25 minutes at the track and then did 5 roll-ons and only needed an extra gallon of meth.

Event

Glad so many 335's and M3's are able to participate in this event. Just wanted to let everyone know that our Vishnu Team will be attending the even. I am very excited to meet many of you in person as much of the support have been online and web based. Our team will be able to offer some track side assistance and also help many of you dial in the tune if is necessary. From now until the event if any of you need help or assistance on setting up your car or need additional parts feel free to let me know and I will assist you.

Drive hard, be safe, and see you all soon!!

Still open for 800+ HP cars. Stick a 400 NOS shot on your 135 and you will be good to go. Anyway as long as everyone is safe at this event, my guess is that there will be another...don't worry.
