1) My mate's car isn't on here? How does he get on?
To get on this list you must comply with all of the following:
a) Must have a galantVR4.org user account.
b) Must be your car (or teams car in the case of race teams).
c) Must be a Mitsubishi car with a E3XA chassis code.
d) Must be a complete 1/4 mile run - no estimated 1/8 mile times will be accepted.
2) Ok, I've checked all the right boxes, how do I get on there?
There are really two ways to get on the leader board:
a) Send me a PM with your timeslip data - the more numbers the better /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
b) Make a new topic about your latest drag strip escapades.
3) What do F/R/N/T/V mean?
F - Fuel used (In AKI)
- AKI is generally 4-5 points lower than the same RON; 98 RON = 93 AKI.
R - Rubber (Tyres) used.
- R Road tyres The rubber on your Gran's first car to ultra high performance tyres.
- S 'Semi' slick The kind that starts off with 'road legal' or 'DOT approved' in the description.
- D Drag slick A full slick or close to it.
N - NOS, Nitrous, etc was used.
T - Timeslip is available.
V - Video is available
4) Oh Noez! You've got something wrong!
If you spot a mistake, typo or otherwise incorrect or missing information please let me know so I can fix it up.
5) Hey, why is a guy who ran 12.397 ranked higher than my 12.3?
Because the other guy has a more specific E/T, whereas '12.3' could be anything from 12.300 to 12.399.
6) Your layout is pretty rough/messed up/looks like dogs balls...
Yeah... give it some time and it should get better.
7) Hey, I used to have 5, 6, 7, 8+ entries on the leaderboad, what gives?!
To prevent cluttering and smothering the leaderboard, people will only have their best E/T listed. However, I am still recording all time slips for shits and giggles.
8) If you're recording everything, can you tell me what the record with xxx is?
Sure, drop me a PM with what you're after and I'll try and provide an answer.
9) Where do I go if I click on these links in the leaderboard?
If available, clicking the user name will take you to the members profile page. Badge number to the members ride page and E/T data to the race result thread.
Ok, first off: /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/applause.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/applause.gif This is a great addition to this board! Seriously, I applaud you.
If I can make a suggestion, would it be possible to make a space next to "Turbo" for Fuel? It seems to be just as important as turbocharger being that people run fuels that are so different (pumpgas, racegas, e85, Methanol). Moving the N for nitrous into a white box would also separate it well..maybe make it an entry box with a number representing the size of shot in HP. Then your Timeslip and Video links would be less cluttered too. Also linking the badge # box to either members's rides or an outside info website.
Second: the fact that I constitute 25% of the top 20 is staggering. It would seem to me that with all the talk of modifying these cars on the board that more guys would be running at the track and getting decent results. Hopefully this will light a fire under some people in 2011 and we see more cars improving their times and changing their setup. (many of these times are quite old). I'd personally love to see people get more involved and this board fill in. I'll get the info for GizmoVR4 #10, we are working on putting that car into the #5 spot in 2011.
Third: rule #8 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rofl.gif I go to the track about 5-6 times a year, Island Dragway is only 11 miles from my house. I think Im up there so much because I go with a different setup damn near every time. If you guys wanted to accept different fuels as well as with nitrous/without nitrous I think I could take over upwards of 45% of the top20.
Guess I'll take the opportunity to make some corrections as well:
#5: Badge is 139/1000 Turbo is a SC5031 Date is Nov 20, 2009 Fuel was 116 sunoco racegas N20: 40hp Video Link
#14 All good Fuel was E85 no video unfortunately
#17 Badge is 139/1000 Slip: 4.986-330' 7.694 @ 90.06- 1/8 10.025-1000' Date: May 18, 2010 Video Link
#20 I'll PM you with the info once I find the timeslips to fill in the mid track #'s
#18....dude, that's a junk pass...feel free to remove it and bump everyone else a spot...that pass was with a turbo missing half the compressor blades and the bearing bound up. Not something Im proud off!
Last time I was at the track with my white car was '05 IIRC. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/uhh.gif I need to find the slip and submit it,two lousy passes on a then new setup but I'd just make the top 20 for now at least. I need to get the car back on the road and go run a more respectable number. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rofl.gif
Yeah layout needs some serious work! It will have to be a juggling act to fit everything on there, if anything I'd suggest the 330', 1000' followed by the 1/8 mile e/t and mph could be cut. I am resizing the turbo column which should free up a bit of space.
Currently not enough people use NOS (Nate and Mark?) to have shot size. Fuel type could be a goer and possibly even tyre compound (street, semi slick, drag radial). It might be more beneficial to have people update their ride pages with more of the finer details rather than try and fit everything onto a single 12 font line.
Due to the constraints of UBB I was sevearly limited in the setting out of links, I have the urls of everyones profile page, ride page and if available to their build and/or race result threads which I will work into a clickable system somehow /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/jawdrop.gif
Sadly, it seems it's pretty much the same around the world - people will modify and race their cars all day long but if it involves going somewhere official, paying a little money or actually fronting up with numbers they shy away. Just look at how many people here talk about racing cars on the freeway or similar!
If it makes you feel better Nate, you don't even appear on the dyno board! 4thstroke is bit of an addict though /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
Now, to take 18 months to post up the Dyno dick swinging competition leader board... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rofl.gif
This is a awsome addition for the people wanting to know who is running fastest in GVR4. I do agree gas type would be a great addition. Ive been looking for this kind of info and beyound dsmtimes.org to go off of that is it.
This just makes me spend more money /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
What about if we just put up peoples fastest times? That would also help to give more people the chance of making the list.
I'm hoping for spot number 6 or better before the end on the year /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif
So I'm slowly updating things. I think I will change it so it's one member, one time. Otherwise the list will become very bloated and it's not a good look to see one car taking up spots 1, 2, 3 and 5 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
I will however still record all available time slips, with an eye on finding out the fastest person with each turbo/gas/tyre, etc.
Dang, this is pretty time consuming! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/rofl.gif
