The dyno fee will be paid directly to Carburater Connection the day of the competition (July 14th). Please make sure you have done an in-depth inspection of your vehicle if you plan to dyno.

Well, last time I'm going in to the dealer who sold me the car to "evaluate" the engine burning oil is beginning of April. He was trying some miracle engine recondition/rebuild in a bottle, but neither of us were holding our breath on it (was a new product that he had heard of that he figured he'd try because otherwise he's just rebuilding the engine anyway). So it's no cost to me but a bit of a pain. Rebuild will likely be happening sometime near the end of April as we've got a couple race cars to finish prep for season opening race mid April still. Then it comes down to just getting the running/driving time to break in the build, and in reality I just don't drive much. I put on 10,000km - 12,000km per year, so it's going to be the better part of 3 - 4 months even if I go out of my way to just drive the car more to break in the engine properly.

Well, depending on what rings you are using. Some of the rings available are so damn hard it takes a long time to break 'em in.

A friendly reminder, the registration cut-off date is June 13th. After that we cannot guarantee you will get a shirt. If you do miss the cut-off date you can still register, but we may not have a shirt for you.

12 people eh? If I register it sounds like I'll be a shoe-in for fastest mk3 for the 3rd year in a row!? Wahahaha.... Maybe if I can get over my fear of the american boarder shredding my car (happened to a few people I know, complete disassembly), plus I don't have a passport.

Maybe its time for someone else to win :hide:

Don't fear the border. Cross at the Aldergrove crossing, much nicer people there. I've noticed they hassle me less there.

lol - why not just ask for a trophy for nicest car owned by a guy with the screen name Enraged while you're at it?

On a serious note, there's no easy way to tell the difference between a stock CT and an upgraded unit. The true stock people will howl if you put them up against the upgraded guys, and it quickly turns into a bitch fest. Witness the still ongoing controversy over 'stock twins' records in the Mk4 community - there's still hard feelings about that 15 years later.

NO!! Aldergrove is fucked. Everytime I cross I get pulled over and I am a nexus card holder. Dont worry about the car being torn apart, just do act like a sketch bag. You are going to a car show youve got nothing to worry about.

haha

I don't really care about hp numbers if the car is fun to drive, which it is (thanks Bill!).

If there were enough entrants, you could break up the HP by injector size, so it wouldn't matter if someone is running an upgraded CT vs a full ball bearing T4, as the hp would be determined by their particular setup and tuning.

Then you'd have to worry about fuel, because the injector size required for, say, 500hp is very different between gasoline and E85. And how do you figure in nitrous, or water / meth injection?

Plus fuel management. If anything, it should be highest hp ct26 with stock ecu imo.

I think everybody should get a participation trophy just for showing up, no matter if they have a running supra or not

The first half of your trophy would be the venue(s) that are being provided by the organizers of this event. The the second half would be the luxury to socialize and showcase all the hard work that has been put into your vehicle. Everything else is gravy.

No bumpers will need to be removed for the dyno. Illtech is working on building a new 30 foot ramp that extends out from the dyno to make driving on and off very easy. For the ultra-low we will have 1x6 lumber on hand.

We would like to officially welcome Domino's Pizza as a sponsor for this years event.

The Show-n-Shine location is now posted.
