Anybody here in the NY/NJ/PA (or any other drivable distance) area interested in meeting up at a local track early in the summer for some fun and games to see which group has the faster cars?

It could all be in good fun and include a few beverages and burgers.

Would be great to get some good clean competition going on between the two friendly factions.

...and its not just about the turbo kit, it will be to test and compare the different combinations, turbo kit, motor, car setups and overall engineering...

Since there is so much fun dialogue about turbo kits around here making the competition around type of kit is a good way of making fun out of it.

Atco is further for me, but I think it will be an easier track to do something like this at.

Lets see who else is interested and maybe we can throw some dates around.

I would be up for that, I dont know why it would have anything to do with which kit to spend your money on? Its basically a matter of who spent the money on supporting mods but if its not turned into something like that, I would be down and support doing this. Im still waiting on some motor parts and other things to get my car together but depending on how soon it was put together, I would make the trip with a few cars

I will tweak the wording. You are right, the test is not just about the turbo kit, but rather a test of the total combination, the engineering and the driving. The rapidly growing number of turbo mustangs allow completely streetable cars to make the power that used to be full race car territory.

I will do a little research on how to do this. I'm not the biggest fan of renting the whole track with a small number of cars because traction is difficult when you aren't making enough passes to keep the track warm. A couple of hours of time on a normal track day would probably be better since we would be dealing with mostly fast cars.

June may be a good timeframe between the local mustang races and gives everybody time to keep working on their projects...

I will do some recon and get back...

any steet night at atco is fine. we can all set up in the back pit area where nobody is and then roll into the stageing lanes all at once. makes it simple.

it would be great if you made it out. we could put a face to the company and see diff On3 cars all run down the track.

May 12 is the Thursday before the race. May 14th is the Saturday. You are right, the track will be prepped well and there will likely be a lot of cars there already for the weekend.

I will have a tough time being able to "play" that night because NMRA races are game time for us and we will likely have 4-5 cars that will be in competition that weekend. Normally late in the week we have a long list of things that we are getting tied up and ready.

If everybody gets a group of cars together and wants to do it that night I won't argue, but it means the guy starting the trouble may not be able to participate.

This small smack talk thread has been very light compared to the smack talk going on for True Street at Atco....I'm working my tail off making small adjustments to get ready for that race and would suggest that anybody with a real street car come out for that race on Saturday 5/14, it is a great time.

You can't change the titles on this board, but if this shifts into a turbo car gathering of all types it would be great.

Lets keep this thread "brewing", anybody at NMRA True Street at Atco can get introduced and lets set a night after that.

Cool?
