I told them my car makes 710whp, and they "adjusted" it to apparently 750..

Sorry only BENCH racers measure their horsepower in "Crank"

Yeah its pretty much wide open, run who you want, when you want.. they make it sound organized in the marketing but in reality it gets very confusing once there and pretty much everyone goes out in 2 packs, with about 30-45min between packs. It works out very nicely.

When they try to combine it into high hp and low hp outings it gets pretty messy and generally that goes out the window after the first two runs.

We put our crank hp because it asks for crank hp.. I and I'm sure everyone else would much rather go by whp.. but putting whp when asked for crank hp is sand bagging.. and you know it.. dude you drive a 700+whp Integra.. the only reason someone builds a 700+whp Integra is because they love sand bagging and surprising people.. don't act like that's not you. You're going to break some hearts/egos out there.

I didn't build it to sandbag, i built it because it's what i had to make something fast.

I am out to break Egos, this is true .

I will have them change it to "Crank" hp then if is that bad, either way 15% loss from "crank" to whp is roughly what we see on Stock Evo's. So that still only puts it at 820ish? The 3 HP Teirs they have are 400-600, 601-899 and 900+. Still puts me in the same HP Teir area...?

power to weight ratio is what they should really be using to classify each car.

I agree, but most of these guys with their cars have no clue what the car weighs and all that.

Don't worry about what people put as their power rating, half of them are lying, half of them are confused. You'll get an idea of who you need to run as the day progresses.

Correct.. and Kenton reverse sand bags.. he puts on more power than he really has because everyone he races who claims the same power gets cooked.

I wish I had 500-600whp on my Civic, 300whp is nothing for events like this! Looking forward for some great time!!!

This just in.. police are on the look out for an individual driving an Imola E46 M3 in Coalinga, reports state he may have raped as many as 10-15 cars today. Be on the lookout.
