2009 Summary

Well, in 2008 we got lazy and didn't perform any drag racing/G-Teching, primarily because we were too busy on the track! However, this year we're going to do better. We have a new car or two that we plan on G-Teching in the next few months, and hopefully we can convince Chad to take his Darth Vette and G-Tech it at Test Site North so we can get a good comparison of how fast it is at the same venue as everyone else. Rob has returned with mods to his Impala SS, and Jim will have the Cuda back, but this time with a brand-new five speed transmission.

Stay tuned!

Event Date Participants Description
March 22nd, 2009 Rick Rick has decided to hang onto his G35 for track use for another year or two, so is throwing some cash at it to make it more competitive. Today's modifications are a revised intake system, complete with G-Tech power runs before and afterward.
April 3rd, 2009 Rob Rob has bought a bunch of performance goodies for his Impala SS, so it's time to take it for another run. This G-Tech session will provide a "before" baseline that we can compare against successive runs after his mods are installed.
April 11th, 2009 and May 1st, 2009 Rob Rob is back, this time with a crazy intake and a full exhaust system. Let's see how the Impala does with the new add-ons!
April 22nd, 2009 Rick It's time to burn some rubber! Rick runs some acceleration tests to see how the intake changes, plus last season's oil leak repair, have impacted performance. The most wheelspin since Jim's Cuda ensues...
May 12th, 2009 Jake Jake has a new 2008 Subaru WRX. We have Test Site North and electronic test gear. Clearly, something must be done. Check out the second AWD, turbo-car test we've performed!
