I have heard that every year I have gone, and only see a few each year. This will by my 6th year going. I plan on racing this year as long as my clutch doesn't go out the day we leave for ohio again.
I thought about going to the buschur sport compact shootout but am undecided as of now. MAP proving grounds is more likely as I doubt I will attend both.

I will be driving the evo to most of the meets and to the proving grounds to spectate. At the shootout, I am going to go balls to the wall and try to get some good passes with the talon and most likely brake a few axels/cases. Ill brings spares ha-ha.

Iím glad Josh is coming with this year! We have had the legendary hotel room booked at the Econo lodge for a few months now. You are going to like the "meat ship" So now itís just a waiting game.

Iím surprised at the activity of the dsm community in Iowa so far this year (and at the end of 2012). Iím excited to meet some new faces and represent ClubLethalInjection.net lol.

Also, if anyone is wanting to do a cruse/hotel party meet I am attending the Mitsustyle.com meet on April 20th. Look into it on their sight if youíre interested.

Yeah if you want to stay in norwalk. Otherwise sandusky is close and lots to do there! I think my group booked it a few weeks after it got over last year.

went to this last year, and this single event made me consider selling the lude and getting an evo, that's how good it is

any word on if that 8.0x second rx7 will be back?

Well the weather couldn't of been better for this years shootout. I had a great time at the event and brought home 2nd place in Max Effort evo. I was not impressed with my driving and know I could of taken first had I been on top of my driving. I'm looking forward to next year and getting more seat time and better prepared.

Maps 4g fd has long since been parted out. So no, it will not be back. It has a SBC turbo setup though. However, I have not seen them since the proving grounds started.

As for the event, I had a streak of unfortunate luck with the talon. About 3 hours before we leave, I was logging it one last time to make sure everything was spot on for the track. I was going to compete in the DSE class this year. I go log it, everything looked awesome so I went to top off the tank with the e85 that I have been tuning with. Get back home and notice my timing belt is soaked with oil.. Iím like wtf.. So I clean the oil off and start it to take a look. Itís seeping around my oil pump drive gear and being slung all over. So i pulled the t belt and got a better look and my pump took a crap ( side to side play in the drive gear making the seal leak). So at this time itís about an hour before we were going to load the car up on a trailer and I decide to not take it. I could have fixed it with a new pump in the hotel parking lot in Norwalk, but did not want the hassle as I had been working on this car for the last month.

So I jumped in my plan B, my evo!. Did a quick oil check and drove over 700 miles there. Then I started drinking the pain away.

Some of the things that suck out most. Saturday night a fellow dsmír spun a bearing in this 7bolt . They pulled the engine and tracked down a built long block. Installed the new engine and I see the car the next day driving around. All the work was done in the best western hotel parking lot. It was quite a shit show, the car owner and ppl working on it were clearly intoxicated. Parts were everywhere. I thought shit, now thatís dedication. I have done transmissions before but never rebuilt a long block in a parking lot.
It was a great year, got to see new setups in some of the same cars. A few very bizarre builds and a Pikes Peak full rally carÖ Got to meet with some old friends and also met some new ones. It was very humbling to watch DSMís beat up on GTRís with over 100k lest invested. The AMS ALPHA OMEGA was cool to see but I was not impressed, as we were looking for a 7-second pass but AMS could not pull it off or get close.

I did meet up with XcreatonX for part of the drive down. It also was a first to be in a evo line up on the way there. Thanks for letting us meet up!. I suggest you're friend getting a dual map for the ease of travel next year. Haha.

Next year we are going to switch hotels up. The legendary Econo Lodge was empty this year. I think everyone is going to Milan now.

Iím excited for next year already!.

Yeah the truck gets well over 400 to the tank towing. You need to bring the talon next year and race it. We need to show them that Iowa can do work as I am not planning on letting Buschur beat me again.

I think I might try out the motel 6 in Milan. We stayed at the quality inn which is nice and quiet with plenty of parking. Or we might have a line on a motor home and camp at the track.

I was expecting record breaking runs on the drag strip with the near perfect weather. I heard from a few people that the track prep wasn't all that great although I pulled a pretty decent 60 for my camber and street tires.

Who wants quiet hah
I ordered about 400 bucks worth of oem parts to get it up and going. Iím going to try to hit CFR again this year yet with some spare axels. I need some sort of time to improve on.
