oh yes it was nice!
the lime, the ole talk, the boat ride was INSANELY best... AC ALL THE WAY! 42" flat screen, GT4, cool bonding of all the trini racers....
friday got there went to the track, set up all the tents and stuff.. nothing happened on friday after being depressed to see a DUSTY unprepared track...
had all the higher HP cars wondering "HOW ARE WE GONNA GO THIS??" premixed trackbite was laid sat morning, a couple cars made some passes, some being aaron's 1070whp blue R32 skyline doing times of 9.6, 9.7 and 9.8.... saturday jodi's 1390whp supra had some launching issues, but after some launching practice saturday night, they were prepped for sunday... singh's s14 2jz powered was also suffering a little too much slippage but after playin with the tire pressure on the launch, it was perfected on sat night... chester doing times of 10.2 twice before his and dessie's s14 g.box broke...chester not being able to replace his borg warner dog box was out from the event...dessie and his team, (the master blaster sparky auto
) got the box up and runnin saturday night and ready for sunday.... stephen's fc3s 13b broke and axel on sat during the day, then replacing the back end with a OS
rear end, got him up the track clockin a time of 11.7 but damaging the center bearing leaving him wounded. there was another supra which was auto and had some NO2..but spun a bearing and was damaged... sherwin's b13 ran times of 12's but after suffering from a head gasket issue was out of the event...
the weekend went on to produce times such as a 9.8 second run from custom imports, black sr20 powered s14, clocking an INSANE time of 9.8...then after the instigation of the..."you have to do it TWICE for it to count" talk....he was motivated to do it again, this time doin a 9.7 which is officially the fastest sr20 in the caribbean and sent the ENTIRE of st. lucia CRAZY... singh's s14 (boost factory) has probably a couple of the most CONSISTANT times i've EVER seen, doing it FOUR times...the EXACT same time...alan's mustang sis 9.7, mervin's V8 powered SUPRA did 9's...tweety did 8.9...hummy's pulsar did times of 10.3 after suffering some NO2 problems... aaron's yellow r32 GTR driven by 'dog' did CONSISTANT 10's (10.7-.9)
in the end on monday afternoon... alan took off the wheelie bars on the mustang and told the announcer...watch this!!.... UP UP AND AWAY HE WENT...popping the HIGHEST wheelie i've ever seen... goin at least 6-7 feet off the ground... ending the st lucia event.... after all it was nice.... history updated... lime was good...times were BETTER.... next event...grenada in may!.... stay tuned.... be prepared...
