since the last update here, boy am I lame. Here's a quick rundown and
welcome to you all. Hopefully I've got everyone covered that hasn't been
A new Member's Rides page will be coming soon, I'll be hitting you up for as much info on your car as you're willing to give me. A new look for the site is maturing as well, it will be a total surprise so don't ask me what it looks like. If you hate it when it's up let me know and I'll tell you where you can put your opinion. ;)
Your webmaster (RC) has been selected as the Race Director for the coming 2003 Car Club Competition Association season. Hopefully I can do a good job.
This link has few pictures from the May 11, 2002 Car Club Challenge event at Bremerton in a small gallery.
Here are a couple MPEG-1 videos taken by my beautiful wife at an ET Brackets event at Pacific Raceways last August. I've got some analog source video that I need to finish editing the capture on and I can put that up as well. The first video is a pre-eliminations time run against a 360 powered 'Cuda. Yeah, that's one really bad RT (reaction time) on my board, you'll notice it when it becomes visible in video. The second video is in the first round of eliminations, he had a 20.58 dial and I was dialed at a 14.29 I believe, giving over a 6 second head start to a Subaru being raced by one of the Mandolin family. Here is an image of us sitting in the ready box just before they pull us up. I lost that race due to a breakout but I did get by him at the end, unfortunately(?) the video does not capture the whole race due to the camera's capture time being exceeded. RT had a lot to do with losing that race. I figured I'd put these up there because they give some idea of what it's like for those considering coming out to race with the team for CCC. What's this RT that RC keeps talking about? It's one of the keys to winning bracket drag races and measures the time from when the green light in your lane is lit on the tree and when you clear the front staging beam as you leave the line. It does not affect your ET (elapsed time, which starts from the time you clear that beam and runs until you break the finish line beam) but it does have a lot to do with winning and losing. If you race this is one of the key aspects you will learn.
Do you have some SEACGP images we should put up here? Shoot a message to the webmaster telling him about them. Check out the Yahoo Groups file listings for some pictures as well, many have been put up there and you can get there from a link from the gallery under the 2002 and 2001 listings. It's easier to get to the Yahoo Groups site now also, a link has been added to the menu for the Email List to make getting there easier.
