Default Tech Check In at the Track

So how tough are the standards?

KCIR type or strict?

Cage?

Fire jackets?

Car starts and a helmet ?

Talk to me

Tech won't be strict but be smart about it. Helmets will be required for all racers

I realize you don't run the place, but can you be a bit clearer on what being smart about it means?

There was a time that KCIR went through a strict phase in the late 90s. I didn't have a driveshaft loop and was running slicks, and had no blow-off pressure release valve on my nitrous kit.

I would tech in on street tires and no bottle, and then get the tires, jack, and bottle out of the wife's car and slap it together post-tech.

Since my setup today is similar, would you suggest similar tactics, or should I be all good as is? My nitrous kit is 100% tucked and difficult to spot unless you are looking for a kit, so I am more concerned about the loop.

Thanks for getting us a track for this event!!!!

I'm pretty sure the freight train has me covered.

If you set me out six and give me the hit I can keep it interesting in the eighth

From what I understand, as long as you have a helmet, all else should be ok.

With the payout I would think there would be quite a few LOW 5 second cars, But I really want to see who actually shows up.

With launch control, tires, and AWD he should be set.

No, 87gn is talking about cars in a different ballpark.

I don't know if I saw 5's alongside of me, but I have gotten to know error and what he is having built.

I fully expect him to bring the wood at this event

Just better be done by then. I just ordered the engine tonight for my truck, ships the 28th of Aug, so I will bring that along for fun as well, but won't be near that fast.

I didn't mean any disrespect. A 5sec GTR would be very sick. But, if some of the guys who did drag week, vamp, etc show up they will be very hard to beat.

Maschmeier and Kendall seemed interested. Who all actually signs up and makes the cruise is a good question.

Can you handle a 550/625 stang?


I'd happily let you take my turd down the track if your runt self can get a better time out of it

Haha. Probably not.

I will be there attempting to do the bike class though. I can finally meet my ol pal JW. I'm excited.

What? Drag week you drive from track to track... So clearly they do have a setup for "cruising".
