• - No Fly Zone - California private airstrip roll on race event March 2nd, 2013 presented by the GermanBoost.com German Performance Car Forum Network

      The GermanBoost Network is pleased to announce - No Fly Zone - a private airport roll on race event taking place on March 2nd, 2013 just outside of Bakersfield, California. This will take place on the Minter Airstrip located at 201 Aviation Street in Shafter, California. This event is limited to just 100 cars. GermanBoost.com is the official German automotive forum sponsor for the event and will be providing media coverage as well as photo/video editing and hosting services and support.


      - No Fly Zone - is an Omega Motorsport Event operated by Tony Lopez (e-mail thatoneguy3000@hotmail.com). All inquiries regarding participation are to be sent to his e-mail. GermanBoost of course will assist with any questions. Tony lives in Bakersfield, California and this is an event with many participants knowing one another and just a group of automotive enthusiasts. No pretentious nonsense, this is an event for car guys. Spectators are not allowed. Participants, sponsors, and pit crews only.

      Total run distance of the runway to be used for acceleration is 1/2 mile. Plenty of run off room for deceleration.

      Pictures of some of the hardware attending as well as the quality of the airstrip tarmac are below. You will be happy to know the quality of this tarmac is MUCH higher than that which was seen at a recent airstrip event in California which was in poor condition with an incredible amount of dust making for potentially dangerous conditions for high powered cars as seen here: http://www.germanboost.com/content.p...-on-the-runway

      As previously mentioned, the cost is $200 per vehicle and there are 100 spots. Spots are filling up fast and here is some of the hardware already registered to attend:






















      BimmerBoost.com will also be providing T-Shirts for the staff and shirts will be available to purchase for those in attendance. One of these two designs will be chosen:








      Here are the further details on the event. Do not hesitate to post, e-mail, or PM with any questions:

      Saturday March 2nd 2013

        For myself, I'm just down for meeting new peeps, having a steak and a scotch and getting ready for an early day.
        Ok let's do it and get that back room. Let's aim for 7 PM.

        Hey xtyper....what happened to the Renntech E63?

        Hey xtyper....what happened to the Renntech E63?
        I got sick of not being able to see my competitors during runs at the airstrip events. The stock C63 should give me a much better view. Click here to enlarge

They'll be done Monday afternoon and then I have someone here locally who will do the install. Haven't decided how the mid section is going to work yet - hoping Weistec has something like an X section that I can pick up today - if not I'll just have one made and then reduce pipe diameter where it meets the OEM pipes near the rear end. Open to any suggestion you have and I was hoping to speak to Steve as well to see what he recommends. Thanks again man - very cool of you, Jim, can't say thank you enough. And like I said, drinks and lap dances are on me Click here to enlarge

        And for those of you who are wondering what we're talking about....Jim took his Evosport headers off his CLK and they were just laying in a heap at Weistec. I asked him what he was going to do with them and to my surprise he GAVE them to me. That's right, GAVE them to me. So big props to Jim for not only being very generous, but also a stand up enthusiast. Thanks again buddy.
        Don't mention it, enjoy them, I was not using them and I am sure you will pu them to good use. They are good headers and make good power, I was running them on the CLK up until recently when Weistec discivered a different design that works better with FI, those evosport headers make some of the most power and they are high quality and should last. If Weistec isnt installing them who are you going to have tune the car? Those headers work great with an aggressive race gas tune, Maybe Steve can put a tune on your car at the event. I will talk to him about it.

        races are starting to get set up, money will be discussed.....let the sand bagging begin.

        FYI, the 800 hp figure for my C63 BS was a guess at the time of event entry, car was still being built, actual number will be between 750-800 crank dependent on pulley.

        Right on man - they are indeed great quality. They're being ceramic coated now, ECU is going to Weistec tomorrow for a high octane tune then it'll all get installed next week along with the new Weistec filters and oil separator. I figure I'll be right around 500 WHP when it's done. My buddy who is an MB master tech and I will be installing it all.

        Doubt there will be any time for that - I'm gonna be pressed for time to get this all done by the end of next week for the event plus I don't care much for dyno numbers. This will be the same n/a setup Jim ran before going FI and IIRC he was just over 500WHP.
