This one's gonna be a big show, should be well over 100-150 cars in the car show portion. We'll have to wait and see how many show up for the SPL portion, hopefully it'll be decent. The last show we hosted had about 30 people competing in 3 classes, this time we'll be doing all 10 classes with trophies for 1st-3rd place, plus a trophy for Highest SPL, Top Team and I might throw in a trophy for lowest SPL, just for fun.

I'll be adding another trophy for the SPL guys, this one will be the "Highest Stock SPL", since it's usually the same guys that win the High SPL for every show I wanted to add one for the "little" guys that aren't hitting 160+ db's. Besides, I have quite a few left over trophies from previous shows that I want to get rid of, so there could be a couple more categories that I'll make up.

The "Big Guys" would the guys from Team Renots and Team 420. Both of them should be there.

The rain cleared up around 1 or so. We had 25 people come through the lane, scores ranging from a 125 to a 162. The car show off huge, they ended up having to close the gates because too many people showed up. Not sure on the total number of cars there, but it was over 150. I'll have pics posted in a couple days on our Myspace page, I'll try and get some posted here.

We'll be at the show next Saturday in Worcester, we're hosting the final dB Drags/Bass Race show next Sunday in Sanford. We'll be at the USACi show on the 27th in CT, and Yes, we're hosting the show in Waterford CT on the 28th.

You finally broke the 140 mark, so a good job for you. Now you can set your goal a little higher, like 145.

I didn't see it in the rules, where is the sensor placed?

SPL Blazer
09-15-2008, 11:26 AM
It's placed on the glass. Roughly 11" from the post, 4" from the dash.

Mr. Slate

Sealed up or door open?

SPL Blazer
09-15-2008, 06:27 PM
Sealed, everything is done as close to dB Drags rules without actually copying them. I want to make it easier for new guys to get into competing without having to deal with the insane amount of rules that Drags has. At the same time, for those that do want to get serious I want to make it a fairly easy transition to go from NESPL to dB Drags.

Mr. Slate

The show on the 28th should be big.
