I wonder why. E70 just a better buy as dealers clear them out? "

I imagine most of the cars that participate in these types of events have some sort of forced induction, but if not, I think there will be a lot of normally aspirated cars with broken hearts due to the altitude (6,000ft with DAs in June probably in the 9,000ft range)

Oh wow, that altitude is killer. If I was NA I wouldn't even go. "

You do make a good point. That is a huge achievement. I'm scared to ask what it costs though... "

I'm not saying you I'm talking about other people.

So my car doesn't run in this event due to a hardware issue, it happens. When it does run and it beats everyone excuses fly left and right about how every other car had this issue or that issue.

I can't even spin my SC because the belt is torn and that somehow means the cars that ran are faster than my car that was running higher boost than before and with better traction than before when it won.

Are people this desperate? Willing to grasp this far at straws? Don't like seeing me win? "

Open invitation for a race stands and has yet to be responded to. Anyone is welcome to come meet me face to face and run on my airstrip. I'm sure they will prefer to talk about the big ESS 'win by default' instead.

Kenton's best trap at AA3 was 178, Marcus trapped 181 at AA5, have you ever trapped higher than 178? Unless I'm mistaken your trap was like 172 or 173 at AA4? So trap speeds they've got you beat, w/o question. Roll racing is another story as we saw with Marcus vs Drew.

Plus wasn't it you that was going on and on about how you won, doesn't matter that the S54's were having issues/etc.. oh how the tables have turned.
I have an easy solution that doesn't involve making excuses or trying to compare moving targets in the manner you are.

I have an airstrip event coming up, why don't they come down and run? Maybe either of these two could try going at me face to face? That, or they can keep sending lackeys to fight on the keyboard instead. "
