Hey guys I have been looking into doing some NASA type track days next year and I am optioning using the vr4. I'm not done with the build yet and it will spend 90% of the time on the street, but want to know how many of yawll actually drag/ road race your car. I do have an FC o could use and I'm leaning that way but another car means more parts and more issues



I wonder what 40psi feels like?

I primarily use my car to keep my friend's lift occupied. But once it's not hanging out there it'll be used for a weekend car that is designed more towards road race use. I'm still hoping to tick off 11's (one 11 second timeslip and I'm done down the quarter). Should be fun

I daily drive my GVR4 and drag race it as much as I can. (I'm likely the most dragstrip oriented/active member of the board). My GVR4 is currently somewhat of a testbed for my DSM dragrace project.

I DD mine now that it's alive and kicking once again. I will be attending autox/track days once i feel the car is ready for that type of abuse.

My Talon's my "fast" car.

I did set up the VR-4 to do some autocross, which I plan on doing SOON!

I'll take mine out on the weekends I'm not working (drag strip or just crusing). Other then that it just sits collecting pollen.

Haha yawll got a wide array of uses for them, maybe a time attack style set up which will allow the car to do many things well I guess it won't hurt to
make the car as multiple facited as possible.

Once, maybe if I'm lucky twice per year, I pull the cover off of the Maroon Car, jump start it, and drive it down to Atco to beat the piss out of it. Then I drive it home, and promptly put the cover back on it and let it go back to sleep. Hasn't been inspected since 06 and I couldn't care less. It serves its purpose.

Nate you should let me know when you plan to taking the Maroon car out. I know Chris and I would enjoy seeing the Maroon car in action again.

I don't know that I'd tell anybody when I'm planning on taking that thing to the track - who knows how the thing'll run? It's just as likely to run a new personal best as it is to break something. :-)

I've heard you say this before. You once asked me, "do you have any idea how much pussy my car has gotten me?!"

Mine does a good job keeping me guessing. It's usually always an adventure when I take it out. It's my driver when I'm not in the work truck.

Haha. Well that could go one of two ways... We could be there to cheer you on or point and laugh. Just kidding, well at least we could help you push it off the track.

Mark, you were hammered. It was at Scott's birthday POS party.

Soooo many good one liners that night, I just can't think of them off the top of my head.
