Any new members from Big Bang?

Post by orb » Thu Apr 30, 2009 12:25 pm

So did we recruit any new members at Big Bang?
I saw my old BWA engine in it's new home and saw it run a couple of low 18's but not sure if Steve dipped under - well did ya Steve?

I ran a new PB of 15.8 which I was chuffed with (Thanks RACESHACK) - I now think it has a 14 in her so can't wait to get to Shakey without a headwind :wink:

Here's the run http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7deu8L0ra4

I hope we did get some new members, I definately saw a couple of quick buses running, one Orange and I think a light blue one too.... I've not herd from any one yet for website updates.

So far we have one new member for 2009, the Wheelerdealer boys, straight in with a 12... no messin!!

Well done also to Orb with his 15.8, good luck with the 14!

I got a couple of low 15's and a 14.87 last weekend, roof racks on, still wound down on minimum boost and full weight. There was a horrible headwind too on Saturday. It was my first ever attempt at the quarter mile and watching the videos of it I did some really slow takeoffs :oops: I mailed you Jules through the BWA site a day or so ago. Rikki checked my slip and gave me my wings :wink:
At Bug Jam i'll have no roofracks and an empty interior, I'll also have some balls to wind the boost up from minimum finally and hope for some 12-13 second runs :)

Bug Jam??? - seriously, can you wait that long :wink:

I might try and get to one of the RWYB days at Shakepeare prior to BJ or maybe North Weald - Be cool if we could get a few quick buses together to go and surprise some peeps :D

Congratulations Shawn, I did see you at Big Bang, your Bus looked awesome and a 14 with full trim & racks is awesome too... well done!!

I didn't see the mail you sent me, that doesn't mean I didn't get it though... may well have deleted it by accident with the ton of spam I get!!

I have PM'd you re. the BWA website, come back to me and we'll get your details up there!!

Cheers!
Jules
