THANK YOU!

Let's spread the word that there will be no more BS at this Shootout. Hopefully all the fear of losing this event of all events will inspire people to keep things in line.

BEHAVE OR LOSE IT FOREVER.

David.

The shootout is a great event that I hope we donít see disappear. You have done more than your part in setting up such an event, and I am sure you have heard it thousands of times, but thank you.

Dave is correct, there are MAJOR events every week or 2 at Norwalk. From FunFord, SuperChevy, to NOPI. Every time I come down to the area for an event, it is NOTHING like the Shootout.

I also think one of the problems is the more influential DSMers, and the elder statesman of the DSM community do not do anything to hinder this. I remember speaking with the NABR group the last 2 years at the Best Western, while people were doing burnouts and had that slide pit contraption in working order, and they were just yuking it up, drinking there beer.

I am in no way putting any burden of blame on these people, but we ( I will include myself as an influential DSMer in the NE Ohio area) need to step up this year and make sure the noobs and the perennial idiots do not act like asses. Perhaps we can inform the local authorities who they can talk to to have direct contact with the people attending rhe shootout, and inform the people who plan on attending that people being asses this year will be prosecuted.

It may seem harsh, but it has gotten way out of control. What do you think about this?

DR1665
12-13-2005, 05:09 PM
I think it's a good idea. While Buschur works on ShootOut details, those of us who are serious about the SO from the other side (attendees), can discuss different ways to help us police ourselves. I think now is the time to start.

An easy idea I will implement myself sometime this week is a new sig pic for all the DSM forums I frequent that will stay up until the SO. I'm thinking something that shows that we're not willing to give up the SO because of retards. Dunno about the wording yet, but if it's cool enough, perhaps more people will use it and people will see just how important this is to some people.

Just a thought.

12-13-2005, 06:52 PM
Glad to hear it is definately happening. I'll be there for sure. Definately more policing needed and I think I can speak for everyone on Buschur Forums that we'll help out in that.

Hey David can liquid to air intercoolers be allowed in the stock appearing dsm class? How about aftermarket exhaust manifolds? And does full interior mean every piece needs to be in place? Because I know some of mine will be missing but I'll try to get almost all of them back in place for the shootout.

I'm glad to hear that there will be one this year. It will be my first shootout and I can't wait. I was really scared for a minuite that there wasn't gonna be one with the way people were talking in the other thread. Hopefully we can all step up and act like civilized respectfull people so there won't be any questioning as to if there is going to be one in 07. Thank you David for having another shootout and I'm sure that us who attend from this forum will do our best to keep things in line as much as possible. From what I hear about this event it is much loved and would be a tragic loss to this community. I'm really looking forward to this years shootout since it will be my first and I'll finally be able to meet the people here in person. Thank you again for having another shootout this year. We all better be on good behavior so we don't loose this event. Spike

We're all going to have to figure out a place to meet this year. Last year I only made it for sunday and I didn't really meet anyone. This year I'm definately going to be there for the whole weekend. Starting out at Buschurs for the Dyno competition. I might even get my little 14b up there to test it out.

Best Western is filled up.

Best Western is filled up.

What's your source? I find it hard to believe that within 24 hours of the announcement that the ENTIRE Best Western is filled up, especially considering that that same exact hotel had rooms open months after last years announcement. The second reason is I just called them to make my reservation and they aren't taking any this early in the game, online nor over the phone. I know at least 2 people including myself that they have turned away. Don't spread rumors about hotels being full, it is stupid, especially this early on.

manley57
12-14-2005, 07:22 AM
Called directly to them, they said "SOLD OUT the ENTIRE MONTH".
Thats good enough for me!

I'm headed up to Microtel in Huron. Have a Suite ready for alot less $.

We are very happy to know that the Shoohout is there in 2006. We will make the travel from Montreal (Canada) this year to. With a lot of car and people. We will be there for the dyno day and for the drag day. And your little white Dodge Colt, try to win to Q16 this year to. ;)

Hope to see you in August.


Thanks David for the good event!

whoulda thunk it. ;-) they arent sold out though. if you look at june and july on their online calender, none of those months are available to book. i think they cought a lot of crap from everyone last year since they booked online at like 180 a night and then were trying to charge people 220 a night when they checked in. they might just turn off online booking until 2-3 months ahead of august to prevent that and make sure everyone books at the higher price. hotels suck.

Well Im pretty damn excited that I will get to experience my second shootout. Thanks to the Buschur family and business for allowing us one more chance to prove we can put on a show without causing any problems. I will have my car there this year and hopefully I will feel safe enough to try and take it down the track. Oh yeah and by the way I just booked my rooms at the best western. All the guys who caused problems last year, you know who you are, keep your immature asses in your mammas basement. And Ill see the rest of you there!!

BW said they were sold out. WTF!

sbstar
12-23-2005, 12:03 PM
Man I better get on it and make a reservation if BW is already sold out. Goes to show how much the shootout means to people, and how hard we should work to keep it going.

Diceman
12-24-2005, 02:53 AM
from what i know, the BW isn't taking reservations for any dates past April or something. it is rather strange but unless your booking date is within the next four months starting at january, it says they have no rooms. i doubt they are totally booked up for 3 months solid. i think they are up to something since the cedar point BW is taking reservations for that weekend. i just reserved my room at the amerihost. they are almost identical since they are owned by the same parent company and my room is 150 bucks less than my comparable room at the BW last year. im bout sick of the BW anyway, there were a few instances of people reserving rooms at one price but at check in were told a higher price to reflect demand. cursing and screaming ensued and one person had to step out of line and wait for 25 more people to check in before the lady would even talk to him again. ;) either way, i just dont want to deal with that this year and with getting cheaper rooms and being .02 miles away from the BW, i doubt i will miss much.

David,

I was at the 2005 shootout and heard if you didnt get to run becuase of the rain then you could show your ticket and get in with your car without paying the $35 again this year and actually run.

After i left in the after noon when it was downing the rain i find out they finally cleared off the track and just ran the quick 16.

Was just cleaning out my stuff and found my ticket i was holding on to and thought about it.

Please let me know
Thanks
Alex

All classes were run NOT just the quick 16 at the end once the track was dryed. Im willing to bet that offer is void.

i havent missed a shootout for 4 or 5 years now since i first went. last year i didnt book a room, but was lucky enough to get the huge suite for like 150. just had a problem with all the midget cars. i didnt know one of those needed its own parking spot.

Thanks Jarrod.

Your welcome!


DSM Stock Appearing (DSA) This is a 1g/2g DSM class.
-NO FMIC'S
-NO external wastegates
-NO sheetmetal intakes
-NO fugly modifications that won't pass for darn near stock.
-1G intake, engine, head and TD05H turbos are fine for 2G's.

sbstar
01-16-2006, 05:38 PM
How full of an interior does stock appearing have to have (meaning will a custom dash, some missing interior pieces, racing drivers seat, and missing rear carpet meet the standards)

Would the GM MAF in a blow-thru setup count as a "fugly" modification. I need a solid answer, as it will effect the direction I go with my setup.

Thanks.

I would also like to know WHAT on my current set up will not pass in the stock appearing class....

Dejon Tool hard pipes: i/c + intake, Dejon Tool side mount intercooler, evo3 16g, GM MAF, DNP exhaust manifold, Hybrid Connection recirculating o2 housing, Hallman boost controller, rear mounted battery, Aeromotive fuel pressure regulator, Coil on Plug by me, Snow Performance methanol injection(hidden from plain sight)


Thanks in advance,
-Gary Burch

P.S. 2005 was my first shootout and it was just awesome! David, thanks for setting this up!

P.S.S. Is the stock appearing class supposed to be "stock" to the average joe or the trained dsm geek eye? According to most of the people that see my car, the only thing they catch as not being "stock" is the Aeromotive fpr. The rest of the stuff is tossed up to being cosmetic upgrades.

The DNP manifold will get you tossed out of DSA. Full interior includes all panels including the rear hatch cover. The interior covers all classes EXCEPT quick and brackets. I do not know about the GM MAF.

Well thats not a problem I'll just swap in an evo/2g manifold for the shootout. I sure am glad I kept the interior intact. I would still like to know about the GM MAF, since it gets past every local mechanic for inspection allowing it seems fair.

sbstar
01-17-2006, 11:08 PM
Yeah I think the GM maf should pass as well (if you're counting votes) but now that I'm going with a side exit exhaust (and thinking about a pwr liquid to air intercooler if I can afford it by then) I'm definately out of the running.

DeviousTsi
01-18-2006, 05:03 PM
Updated profile:

Dejon Tool hard pipes: i/c + intake, Dejon Tool side mount intercooler, evo3 exhaust manifold, evo3 16g, GM MAF, Hybrid Connection recirculating mild steel o2 housing, Hallman boost controller, Aeromotive fpr, Coil-on-Plug, Snow Performance methanol injection(hidden from plain sight)

Will I have to change the o2 housing as well? Can I get away with the o2 housing with a heatshield covering it?



I am soo excited about the shootout I am trying to get completely ready for it way before summer...I can't wait to actually race this year!

sbstar
01-20-2006, 12:19 AM
I don't think the methanol injection will pass for stock appearing, but who knows.

They are fairly lax about the roll cage. I have seen plenty of cars in the low 11's without cages there.

I was rather aggrevated with the questions that seemed obvious to me, I edited my original posts.

I went back through the rules for DSM SA at the top of this topic and added, changed and subtracted things.

The GM blow through MAF is NOT allowed in the SA. The factory air box HAS to be retained but can be cut up as long as there are two factory mounting points left on it and it is bolted down.

Full interior means exactly that, Full.

The alky injection. As long as the tank is mounted out of sight I don't care if you have it. You can run race gas in the class so I don't see alky as being an unfair advantage.

BEHAVE OR LOSE IT FOREVER. I prefer "Behave or get your ass kicked."

We can't rely on the threat of the Shootout going away to affect the behavior of a bunch of underage drunks who just don't care. All of us who want to see the Shootout continue need to step up and regulate ourselves as a group.

If you witness assclown activity, put a stop to it. If you don't feel comfortable doing so, tell someone around you who does, or find someone in authority; call the police if necessary. This kind of crap reflects on us as a group; if you see someone behaving like a jackass, but do nothing about it, then their behavior might as well be your own.

If you were one of the idiots who were involved in the "backyard brawling" that happened at the Best Western, threw something through a drive-through sign, or participated in any of the other stupidity that happened last year, feel free to stay home. I won't hesitate to call the police to have your drunken ass hauled off to jail if you're acting like a four-year-old again, and I'd like to see others willing to do the same.

Made my reservations. This will be like the 5th S.O I've been to I guess. Looking forward to it and I always have a great time.

Me and the GF make a weekend out of it, hit the park, go to the lake, hit Norwalk and some cool restaurants, spend some quality "hotel time". ;) ;)
Hit the Kart racing track and do some DSM/EVO racing here and there.

Can't wait, and I hope the kiddies from the last few S.O's stay home or get thier asses kicked.

05-05-2006, 09:08 PM
I've been to many S.O's.

Most frequent places for the DSM'ers are:

Best Western. (I'm here). It's in the middle.
Econo Lodge: Few blocks south of B.W.
Amerihost: Few blocks north of B.W.

Those are the big three when it comes to the S.O.

I know last year some of the dsm community was dissapointed because we didn't have all that much stuff at the shootout to sell them so, I would like to know what type of parts you would like to see for sale at the shootout this year. Things such as clutches, turbo's, exhaust and so on. Please let me know.

12SecLaser
05-11-2006, 09:09 AM
I think you should have any and all parts that you guys fabricate. Always good to have a clutch or two on hand, with that many DSM's in one area someone will need one. Basically, anything that can be bolted on at the track.

i think it would be a good idea to have any of the more common breaking parts. if you guys are interested in making some sales and/or helping a few out you should have some or all the driveline parts readily available. anything that is common to get broken at this fun ass event. i cant wait.

i think it would be a good idea to have any of the more common breaking parts. If the fine folks at NRP are as on-the-ball as they were last year, maybe a decent stock of replacement center diffs and axles would be a good idea? :D

Man I can't wait for this year's event. It will be first DSM event I've ever been to since I jsut bought my first one recently. Heck I just joined this forum. Hopefully I'll have my teenage-budget project up and running for the event. And i know this sounds silly, but what exactly went down last year that made it so rowdy?

I've been to many S.O's.

Most frequent places for the DSM'ers are:

Best Western. (I'm here). It's in the middle.
Econo Lodge: Few blocks south of B.W.
Amerihost: Few blocks north of B.W.

Those are the big three when it comes to the S.O.

we got two rooms booked at the econo lodge so far..might book 3 more if there's still room...anyone else staing at econo lodge?

Hell yeah, we got one room on Saturday night at the Econo-dump but nowhere to stay Friday night. I guess we'll just wing it and sleep in our cars if necessary.

You sure you don't mean 16th, 17th, and 18th for the EVO/WRX event in June? Econo-dump was fairly quiet last year, Best Western had all the action but not all of it good. I'm all for some good drinking but the property destruction has to stop.

nah im talking about the shootout....we had a blast at all the hotels last year, except for those tiny cars at the amerihost that messed up some of the fun there...but the econo lodge we had some drunk foot races around the building and did our annual free bike race ...unfortunately we had no gold cart this year like unlike the previous two years.

allow me to jump in here.

somehitng people from out of town need to remember, buscher racing is local to the norwalk area. your immature actions can directly impact his business, and the reputation he has with the community of norwalk/wakeman. for him to hold an event like this for you guys is amazing. i attend the so pretty much every year for the last 7 years, and i don't even drive a 4g car. :p

i will be at the track on sunday, possibly stopping in the shop for the dyno event on saturday. hope to see some badass cars ripping up the 1320 that weekend. theres a few i always see, and always look forward to talking with. ;)

Alright guys I gave in on some of the changes you all wanted, after much debate in my mind. It is time to change to help the classes grow.

Please go back and read the rules as I have just changed a few things.

Here is a quick rundown:

Stock appearing 1g/2g classes can now have FMIC's as long as you do not have to do ANY cutting of the front fascia to make it fit. So what I am looking for is a nice neat job that could pass for a stock FMIC install. Our kits are good examples of this.

DOT tires in Stock Appearing DSM and EVO classes now mean you must run a DOT tire that has a minimum tread wear rating of 140. So no Hoosier's or drag radials in those classes.

ANY DOT tire can be run in DSM/EVO Eliminator, Brackets or Q16.

The point of that change is to keep a street car a real street car, one that can still handle and drive in the rain.

Also want to welcome aboard Exedy and DEI as class sponsors.

Damn it all...after all the little things I just converted so that I could stay in the dsm stock appearing and NOW I COULD HAVE RUN A FMIC....thats soo irritating.

Is it possible to have a sub category of Stock Appearing called Stock Appearing Modified...? This would put the competition in closer fields.

Its great that you are now allowing front mounts in Stock appearing I think that it was time, good move Dave.

Following DeviousTSI's remark, a Mitsu Turbo class that includes everything that looks like a stock turbo but no other rules (i.e. FMIC, External WG, Sheetmetal Mani, etc.) may be another option to keep the intergrity of the original Stock Class. I know you probably dont want to add yet another class but its an idea.

See you in August.

Dave,

Does this mean we can run cyro2 coolers on our intercoolers for stock appearing...? Come on you are already allowing fmic in stock appearing why not something that will add in sales for DEI?

Yes, I will allow Cryo kits on any car in any class at the shootout. ONLY I/C sprayer bars though and it better be perfectly clear that the only thing seeing C02 is the intercooler face itself. No cheating pumping nitrous into somewhere else.

I made a change to a misprint on the first page today. It said that nitrous and gutted vehicles were not allowed in Q16. That was incorrect.

I had to pull out the rear seatbacks to get a solid mounting point for the 5 point harnesses. The rear seat bottoms are still installed. The rest of the interior is intact aside from the trunk carpet/spare tire cover. I haven't had time to finish a cage before the Shootout but did get the Sparco seats and harnesses done. Would minor interior mods like this keep me out of DSE class? :confused:

[edit]
I'll try to get the seatbacks remounted but I'd rather leave them out than have them flopping around back there not bolted down correctly. I'm not really a Q16 type of car but maybe. I'd always run bracket in the past.
