I still love the wheels on the car. I'm still rocking the 195's on Volk racing rims.

Quoting LIV4PSI:

We saw that Grey VR4, although I walked the parking lots hunting for them. I noticed it looked stock, but had a 4 bolt, KYBs, and all SS lines. It looked like you guys were off to a good start.




He has a FMIC and 650s for it and some sweet old school Racing Hart wheels at home, but he was having a hard time getting his ECMLink to communicate so just put it back to stock injectors and ECU to drive out there. Needs a driveshaft rebuild something fierce, it clunks pretty bad but we made it all the way there and back! He is the 2nd owner, bought it in 2001 or so and has had it in storage for 5 years or so since the rear steer lines and rear brake lines rusted out. Last time it was at the Shootout we had the 13" Daytons on it. 104k miles, probably one of the lowest mileage cars out there right now. Finally got bit by the modding bug and throwing some cash and some hours into it.

Well I DNF'ed in max effort. I think i was like fourth or fifth coming out of the autocross down about 2 seconds. I was fighting a alignment that was completely awful. I still was in pretty good shape considering 3 of the guys ahead of me were at least a couple seconds slower in the quarter mile. The first run on the drag strip I smoked the four bolts that hold the axle to the stub. I found some replacement bolts and was too slow to make the second scheduled pass. I went for a shake down run time trial and noticed in second gear my wideband was showing my car leaning out bad. I backed out of it and coasted that run. I worked in the back corner of the parking lot scrambling to find my fueling issue and found I had a torn fpr boot. It was too late to repair it so I skipped out on the last pass.

It was cool seeing the OLOA VR4 and talking to numerous guys who I can't even remember who all I met. The weekend was real busy as Sunday I was making sure my friend was all set up for DSE. He ended up winning by taking out the reigning champ.

I'm just glad the car for the most part made it out in one piece and I could drive it back home today. Hopefully next year we can wrangle all the vr4's together. The parking sucked ass and I didn't have anyone's phone numbers or knew anyone so it was tough to try and organize.

Here's a couple pics from FIC.

It was good to meet most of you and very nice to have chatted all weekend. Loved seeing the One Lap car in person and shake hands with Tim. Man, that brake caliper bracket was obliterated.

Lofty was definitely a trip watching him do the traditional foot races at the Econo Lodge huffing that parachute on his shoulder.

matt92vr4, I didn't know John Wigger was mutual friends with my friend Chris Keagy, so I got introduced to and hung out with them for a few while watching some autocrossing action. You should have rolled out. There were 19 of us that drove up from Jacksonville and made the trek again.

LIV4PSI, I think I met you at the Best Western about the time they were rebuilding that transmission for that Colt that ran 10's the next day. As soon as all my pictures upload, I'll post some here.

turbowop, man we were all in denial that it was Jeff's car that caught on fire, because they had ran another set of cars after his pass. When the officials started scrambling to get to the end, we couldn't get to his trailer fast enough to see if he was alright. After finding out he was o.k. and just wanted some peace in the RV, we pushed the car in the trailer just to get it out of sight, out of mind for a bit. Apparently, after a good night and some really good news, he said it should be running again sooner than expected. Just not in Denver next week like he was planning.

I see CFT's GVR-4 run 9's all the time down here, but was hoping to see it wake some people up at the Shootout. I know they were shooting for 9.2's before it busted and wish they could have continued to run.

I also got to meet Tim and checkout his his cool One Lap car.

This my Summit from the same angle.



It is leaning less than I thought it was!

I had a super busy weekend, raced Max Effort on Saturday (took 3rd place trophy with a minivan!!!), then tried qualifying for Q16 (the only heads up class I could run), then Bracket 1, and finished the day in the run only class. Totall of 10-11 passes + 6 AutoX runs!

I did end up bending some intake valves when I shifted 3-2 on my last pass. First time I did that... Fortunately, I towed the Summit to OH, as last minute dicission.

Overall, that was a great weekend!!!

I loved watching the Summit make passes. Between it, your GVR4, and the AWD Spyder, you have my favorite collection of 4G63 powered cars. Only one missing from my favorites is an AWD Colt hatch.

Because I was too busy wrenching on the VR4 till it was too late to even go, that and my 1g's aren't in get in and drive 22+ hours condition. I'll be there for sure next year. Might even go with my friend with the red 1g talon again. =)

That's kind of what I figured. I got my car together the night before, only to find out in the morning the filler neck hose was rotted and leaking. My friend couldn't understand why I wasn't okay with leaving the GVR4 at home and riding 4 deep in his Corolla.

I could only put in $10 of gas at a time, I had to use a jump box every time to start the car, I didn't have time to correct my steering wheel after installing a new rack, I was missing my horn cover and front sway bar, 90 OFH is plugged with no cooler, but #1501 made it there!

Haha nice, hey did you know there's a guy named John Vigil that makes a stainless filler neck for our cars for only 85 shipped? It looks pretty sweet. I'm gonna get one eventually.

You were rocking that Summit out everywhere! I think I even saw you cruising through all the hotels too. Here's are a few pictures I have...

Sorry the first two weren't as clear because my point and shoot camera was on the wrong setting.

AWESOME!!!! Someone did take some pics of 1501! It looks pretty damn good too if I say so myself, except I need a white 92 grill and to lighten the corners some.

Thanks for the tip on the filler neck Mike, I will definitely be buying one. I haven't had time to research about it yet, been busy trying to figure out why I need the jump box to start my car

I remember meeting you. One of my favorite parts of the Shootout is meeting fellow gvr4.org members. You guys are the only ones who truly appreciate all of my hard work, because we all own or have owned one.

It belongs to Central Florida Turbos, or CFT for short. They are mostly street racers who aren't very active on the internet. They have no interest in meeting other GVR4 owners or being part of the community. It still sucked seeing the car break on the first pass. I wish I knew more about that car, I noticed it wasn't intercooled.

Yes for sure. I've been to the Shootout many times in the past but I realized that I had acquired #924 since my last time going. So I made it a point to find all GVR-4 owners on this trip.
