Default Highlights of BFest

Me, Taylor, and Todd lined up at a light along a 6 lane highway giving it all through town in the middle of the night. We had gas to burn before heading to the track the next day.

Todd got the best E.T. with 12.9x something. He can fill you in.
I won the bracket races never getting above .100 reaction time all day long, while Steve was the runner up. Brian had a 15.400 dail in and ran an exact 15.400 but lost because his launch was lazy.

Marty'* POS wouldn't start after leaving the bar because he already has enough cars and the forces that be didn't think he needed another

BadSSEi had a few issues shifting and supercharger oil going all over the place, but still managed mid 11'*. They were just working out all the bugs for next weekend at Pontiac Nationals.

I discovered that a cam feels like at idle...and guess what....I'm getting a cam next year.

Last night was me playing Texas Holdem on the internet with the Intense crew in their room for hours. I took over Tim'* PC and made 8,000 for the guy, but then he lost almost all of it on a stupid hand.

After that I "stumbled" outside to meet up with the Beretta club people and called out the Bonnieville Club people who were still awake to join us. Twas a drinking midnight party under a tent right next to the hotel.

In conclusion, the Bonneville Club made an impact in the area with the midnight sounds of supercharger whine and drunken swearing until the early morning hours. I'm sure the rest of the group will be posting their thoughts later today.

thanx!



I am also sharing some other experiences that might be posted in pics when the others get home safely. I actually got a chance to see a car do 8.64 seconds. It was a Black 68 Corvette. FAAAAAST! Then there was a GXP Grand Prix that ran a 24.5 on its first ever run using a TAPshift and had 4500 miles on it. I forgot who he ran against. Then is was a Mustang Mach1 that ran 12'* But this Black GTP 98 beat it somehow. The track was so hot that i was exhausted. Waiting for your turn to race was like waiting for Christmas Eve to end and Christmas morning to come, lol! I also know if you red light to continue with teh race. I hit the brakes and i thought i was suppose to back up and go bac to the line. The guy told me to go on. Its hot in the car. Saw a red Grand prix and it was very fast. He was from wisconsin, BADSSEi..........no words can EVER explan that car, PERIOD! I got a chance to meet Todd, Scott and TIm. To me they were like meeting movie stars.

The INTENSE crew is back and safe and had a blast. Please start a general thread as I can never find my way into and out of the lounge I have some vids that should go up tonight as well.

Thanks all for the great time, and for Kyle putting it together. Next year I hope more than 12 guys can attend at the same time

It was a good time, and now Tim and I can match some faces to names like Todd can do.

Thanks for having us out everyone!
