Texas Mile Oct 2013

571 posts in this topic

Woke up remembering where I was this time last week :) and who all was there. If I counted right we had 3 Challengers, and one each Charger, GTR, Mustang and about 28 people hanging out and rooting each other on. It was so much fun :).

Lisa, I'm thinking there were a total of 8 Challengers there. Me, Deb, Morg, Doug, Sean, Dale, you, and Kenny. The Belmont was a good place alright, the only thing I could complain about was their wireless sucked. I've certainly paid more for worse accommodations, though.

Jack my count was the ones that were running the mile. I should have been more specific.

Actually Jack I'm glad you mentioned that, I am going to email the manager of the BMS and tell him about the wireless issues because it did suck!

They were pretty tolerant of our impromptu tailgate parties. Sean made good use of the brush beyond the parking lot, it was well lit even out there, so no chance of pissing on himself lol. When they get a March date nailed down, I'll make sure and make a reservation. Thanks to Mike for his generosity in reserving our rooms in advance for us. Remember guys, if it looks like you won't be able to make it, be sure and call a couple days ahead of the event and cancel, it will save you grief later on.

guys its been a long time since I have posted here in a little bit busy my personal life however seeing this crew down in Texas was absolutely nirvana.

team shake n bake grows stronger every year and tell me it wasn't cool hearing the announcer announced our team's name over and over again at the track.

 

this crew gets stronger with every event way to be people way too freakin be I'm so proud of each and everyone of you.

 

That goes for you mauls it was great seeing you down in Texas tell Matt we said hello

first of all I want to give a big hello to Deb Wallace it was an honor to spend time with you and I'm glad we all made it home safe

 

Chuck and Lisa you set the bar perfectly hi it was great to see those smiles on your faces..I'm honored to call people like you my friends and that will never change I couldn't believe the smile on chucks face all day I know he had it really bad what I saw the look in his eyes that goes for you too Lisa.. :)))

 

 

Dale it was an absolute pleasure carpooling in with you.

you're a great guy..

Doug meeting you was an absolute honor I look forward to talking to you very soon on the phone.

Sammy you're a true brother Carl you're as crazy as the day is long and I love you for every bit of that energy that you expel.

the 200 mile in our jackets are simply an honor sir and have set everybody in motion way to do it karl.

Sean conti I had no idea what an interesting guy you were I look forward to our future interactions beyond what you know.

thank you as well Sean for the offer that you had made to us and some of the accommodations that you had pointed us towards I knew I was in good hands Hotel guru you are.

 

Mike Doyle your the f****** man dude thank you for showing up at this event man did we have fun at dinner.

To my very dear friend Jack n Super Dave thank you for all you did for me getting that car up to spec.Jack blk voodoo did very well you should be beyond happy!

 

Kenny my brother seeing you and your family again was a treat beyond belief I just love your wife Monica she is a pistol.

your son Allan is following right in his dad's footsteps you should be very proud and that Mustangs going to pop over 180 for sure next year.

 

you want to know what it is its in everyone of you and what you do that motivates such actions I consider you all my mopar family till the end.

 

like I told the lady luck miss Lisa at the track we are all so blessed.

guys the Texas Mile is more addicting than anything I could ever imagine and I think a lot of others are finding that out next stop Bonneville and the Silver State race guys.

 

a little heads up we've already booked accommodations down in Galveston before the march of vent in 2014 we will be attending as spectators this year and if I can pull it off I'll try and rent a Dodge Challenger.

 

our plans are to roll in from Galveston area with Kenny and his family next year Thursday so who's in on this thing because once you do it there's no turning back.

 

Sirius congratulations to all that made effort to be at this event living in a digital world things get a little bit of skew sometimes showing up in spending time with friends now thats a damn good analog time.

 

I have a s*** ton of photos that I'm going to be sending out to certain individuals on memory sticks however I will be posting some as soon as my photobucket account has finished downloading them.

 

wait to you see some of the action it was amazing.

on one note the GTR ran consistently at 169 its best time was 169 .7 but we all know the cars running short gears it's more of a quarter mile car until we up the boost and that's pretty easy to do dropping those cats in putting a custom tune on the car will put it at 600 wheel horsepower and that's not even starting the process.

 

now it's the wife's car so she going to be up to this that's the question however being at this event in seeing those other GTR's Run she is quite motivated and actually is thinking about buying a black one to put in the garage next to the white one and I think it's going to be a track edition.

 

I have to give a big thank you to my wife who allowed me to take her brand new car down to Texas and compete in this event that sounds an awful lot about our level of trust with each other however that photo shoot at the end of the runway with those girlsif you were there you know what I'm talking about.

may have ruffled feathers temporarily but she understood and it was a once in a lifetime opportunity so what if there was a little bit of nudity.lol

 

the whole time I was down there I was thinking where the hell are my friends..lol

sort of like that scene out of the movie Hot Tub Time Machine.

 

things cool down quite sadly she is flying to Europe tomorrow for 2 weeks before the Thanksgiving holiday so we were on a very tight time schedule and I'm sorry I had to leave Sunday.

 

so you guys were at the end of the runway for that photoshoot with the GTR's

 

Aka pussy down there too.

I still have a lump on my head from the wife..opps.

Lmfao ..

 

Yes sir a major Thanks to Mike( Notsure) for taking care of the room reservations this time. I did it last time but I was working 7-12's and didn't have time to keep up with when the rooms opened up so Mike took it upon himself this time to take care of us. That's how this crew roll's baby. :)

 

 

 

lol That's now shit, there was pussy every where! lol I never saw any snakes though.

Really cool vids Mike!!!  How did the GTR do on the strip?

Really well for its short geared ass!! It is quick as shit!! Found that out and loved seeing what it had for me at the track..It was hairy man!!

I spun the tires a bit off the line, cuz you know Im gonna look down that track and defy all logic and launch the thing at 4000 rpm!! 

Every damn time!!

The other two GTR's there didnt lauch one was at 600 hp at the tires and there was a silver one owned by a guy named Henry that was about 900 at the wheels ran a 202 with out trying and he got his ass spanked for no cage..That car was sideways and launched maybe at 1500 rpm off the line!

 

Best way to discribe it is its like a rocket sled!

 

I swear its a bitch off the line then it plained out about the 3/4 mile mark I was in 6th gear...ugh!!

 

Next time I paddle shift the thing ..and gotta get more boost it can handle 26 pounds on the stock internals and im running only 14 pounds from the factory.

Had some great seat time 5 runs all balls out. Stock on 93 octane it ran 169,7at its best!

Oh I had a case of beer and a bottler of rum and I think about 100 pounds of shit in my trunk,,,oops//

 

Wife says I let off and didnt want to  beat K1's 172.1 but I'd never do that :)))) I just added weight to the thing, lol... lol...

Ran great got home without a hitch!! You couldnt pry me from the wheel  I did the whole trip every damn mile that damn thing is too fun to drive.

 

Supa how was that launch buddy??? He he he !

Its the wifes call if we bump up the boost and add easily 200 ponies at the wheels its just a tune and drop those cats !

 

Its one sturdy little jap trap  :))) lol John Lewis..

 

I betcha he did.... They were on when I turned off I-130.

lol cars dirty as shit and it is still the same in the garage as you had seen it.. lol The neighbors keep walking by every night ,and know Im crazy now!!

I may store it that way ..Wife just laughs.. What a good sport she is letting me beat her pretty little pony at the Mile..I renamed it my Little Mule!

For 5 days :)

Donkey show is done for me its her baby !

 

lol Mike did you still have your numbers on the car?!!!

You know it and its going in its little car bubble thingy haggered I fear! Man its dirty but it looks cool as shit!

 

That's winning right there Mike, nothing but good times my brother. :)

Always with this crew .. Shake it then you ....Bake it! 

More to come Hoss! March cant get here fast enough the wife and I need a vacation that trip was work baby!!
