I wanted to know what you had done to your car so far? I wanted to take my 1991 Sentra E 4SPD and see what I could run at Capitol Raceway. I retarded my timing (thinking I was advancing it) and ran a 17.3 the first time - that was funny. All I have is a light car - JWT clutch - timing is properly advanced now :) and a Hotshot CAI. I might get some Hotshot headers eventually - but I'd like to see what I can properly run now... Eventually I want to do a SR20DET swap. But thats something I'll start next year end...

Hey KeVQ35:

When is the next time you're going to Capital? I used to live in Laurel and now I'm about 20 miles west. Do you ever cruise out 32 towards Clarksville?

I'd love to go this Friday (8/30/02) - its been a while since I went to Capitol. I have not returned due to my frustration - TRACTION - has been my biggest problem (60fts 2.4-2.6 netting me around 15 flat times in my Altima). First time I went, I got a 14.9 followed by my best time of 14.59 - ever since its been downhill. I'd love to beat that time in stock form and then I would start modding the car...

Yeah I'm familiar with 32 - I live right off 198...

I'd definitely wanna check out your car. I expect to see your car in www.nissanperformancemag.com if it hasn't been there already - especially with all the work you have done.

Damn that is a good improvement man. You'd probably take me now - if I don't get a good start... Congrats man - guess you're going for a low to mid 14 second time... At least you'll be consistent - wish I was...

It looks like I may finally be getting my cam gears installed, the bad news it that the install may be this Thursday or Friday. I've been trying to have these things installed going on the 3rd week now. I'll keep you posted though, 'cause I may be able to still make a run Friday.

However, I emailed nissan performance magazine about a feature on my car. They emailed back and said "Absolutely". Thanks for the heads-up on the website man, I did'nt even think they'd respond, let alone so quickly. I'll keep you guys posted. :cool:

mid, low 14s? that is impossible with just a header+ his current mods
I was referring to his future goal as far as mods go - when I said "guess you're going for a low to mid 14 second time..." - I was thinking about Rick's times that I normally see in Racing Stories... I know he(Rick) has a bigger shot - so I didn't expect him(Ramses) to get low to mid 14s...

Oh no problem Black Hornet. I knew they'd definitely be interested in doing a feature on a turbo'd alty - way to represent the 1ST generation.

:confused: Ramses: Where is that spot you said you and your car club meet at? I rolled to Manasses maybe a week or two after I talked to you at the mall and it was dead up there. I havent been there in almost two years and I thought it was still up and poppin there but I guess its dead just like Metro. I still cant wait to see the mods on your car maybe I can get some ideas from you. ;)

It was probably when everyone was at nopi. people usaully dont show up till 8 or 9pm, too. but i dont go up there anymore because car club suspended me(not supposed to go there), so im quiting because they pissed me off. their car club isnt for me. i rather start rolling with people who hook up fast cars and chill together but not really have an official club. more like a team who build cars.
