Default Second round of NSDW

Hi all.

Another great event at my local track here in NZ - Meremere Dragway.

Night Speed Drag Wars round 2.

Huge turn out again with great racing and a lot of great people. I love these street events as you get all sorts of cars out. From a street legal 40PSI R32 GTR knocking on the door of 9's, to 17 year old kids in their first car doing 17 second passes and having a blast.

Best I managed was an 11.5 @ 121mph. Stoked with that even with a lazy launch only on the converter at 1-2psi.

Unfortunatly being a street event the track prep went away pretty quick and I couldn't back the 11.5 up. I was only able to do multiple 11.7's and eventually being knocked out in the 3rd round of actual racing in my class (C2 - turbo 2wd but no quicker than 11.0) by spinning bad off the line and also in 2nd gear and only managing a 12.2 losing to a quick FD RX7 who ran an 11.8 (he was running low 11's all night).

Worn M/T et street r
350rwkw on E85
Auto

Unfortunately I don't have any in car footage as my dash cam was playing up.

Tuned by Maxx Performance in Melbourne - she's a ripper of a street family car. I drive my daughter to daycare in it!

Yeah if you can get there early it's good.



I've entered the first 2 rounds and going back next week for round 3.


All going well I will keep going and see where I place.



Currently in 4th with 90 points, with 2md and 3rd tied with 100 points and first with 130.

First week was after 1am finish.
Last week wasn't much earlier.

Qualifying doesn't finish until 8:30 so you'll get to see a lot of racing.
