i may show up as late as possible so the little one doesnt get too restless, what kind of entry fee is this thing? If its too much I'll say screw it as I've got better things to spend $ on, like hookers and booze :confused: :laugh:

price is unknown, been trying to get the answer. CS = car show FE= full event (spl and sq)

you guys got an amp rating book or spread sheet there? I know what my 4000d's were tested @ in 08 @ usac finals @ 1 ohm / 1% thd but i doubt the 1/2 and 1/2 again power rating to get to 4 ohm would fly... these amps are rated to do power by SS @ 5% thd :laugh:

Oh my bad it's not Nopi. Thats a couple weeks after. And yeah they do have cheat sheets and or the judges they choose usually have good knowledge of equipment specs. Most 4ks will put you in 601-1800 or Mod 1001-2000. Hope that helps. Sorry for the bad info earlier.

I tried emailing USACi to get info, but Ralph's a **** and wouldn't tell me. The flier I have says gates at noon, but I don't know if that means Spectators gates are at noon, or thats when everyone gets in. I believe if your gonna compete you have to be there before they let the spectators in, so you don't run them over. It's $17 per person at the gate, plus whatever Ralph decides to charge to compete, guessing about $40 for that, kids under 10 are free. The event is mainly a car show and races, but USACi will also be there doing a 2X. The flyer I have gives prices for everything, except the SPL portion.

CRXBMPN

go figure... shoot me over his email addy in a PM i'll try and reach out. That sounds like alot of cheese for a trophy or plaque or whatever... hmm
Thx too, your insight is always appreciated.

I might head up there just to say hi to Ralph, lol, I know he hates me.

CRXBMPN
05-11-2010, 05:15 PM
haha very funny... a bit more info would be nice. ya know... I first did a USAC show back in I think 2000 or so, and these sorts of things were happening too, I guess the more things change the more they stay the same.

SPL Blazer
05-11-2010, 09:51 PM
you can always try emailing Ralph, he doesn't know you so maybe he'll reply to you. He don't like me at all, so he won't reply to me.

ralph isn't going to be there........ told it was usacI affiliated but not run by anyone in the head office....... Import Face-off has there own USACi certified judge

17 bucks to just get in i could give to shits about the show i just wanna see the bass and spl wtf 40 is alot for a trophy. is there any new info about this show

CRXBMPN
05-20-2010, 05:34 PM
Im not going to blow that much $ for a show if its $34 for me and the wife just to get in and then $40 to do a 30 second sub par burp .

Mr. Slate
05-20-2010, 06:00 PM
Mark is not doing this event but it is an official USACi 2X event and the prices are set by Ralphie. It's another faction of USACi that travels with the Import Face Off shows.

SPL Blazer
05-20-2010, 06:05 PM
Like Nate was saying, fees and things are set by Ralph. He's not going to be there, they have a multi point judge that works only with the Import FaceOff series and nobody wants to give any info on it. The actual SPL fee could be $20, or even $60, nobody knows. You have to waste your time and gas to get there, pus the $17 per person at the gate so you can get to the SPL section and find out how much more you have to pay.

For an Org as big as USACi you'd think they'd be a lot better and promoting this show and some kind of communication or something. They don't even have any info on their main site or the forums, other than the date and location.

I hate to do it since it's close to me, but I'm saying the hell with this show...it's irritating when they won't give info, not to mention it's ridiculous to pay to enter the gates AND pay to compete...

SPL Blazer
05-20-2010, 06:15 PM
I wouldn't mind if they said they'd take $17 off the SPL fee, but we all know thats not gonna happen. Too bad too, I just got my new USACi membership card in the mail too, figured that might save me some $$ off the fee. Besides, my processor broke the other day and I just don't have the time to go and set all my gains and test everything all over again before this show comes.

Epping, NH (http://www.importfaceoff.net/epping.htm)

They are charging 2x points show price. Guess you'll have to call to find out.

SPL Blazer
05-20-2010, 08:46 PM
I called the # listed on the Import FaceOff page for the SPL, but it went to voicemail and his voicemail is full, guess I'll have to try calling another time and see if someone actually picks up.

I don't think so, they haven't said anything about any shows in NH. Next one in a night show June 5th in Nashua.

I heard about tomorrow night's show too...supposed to be a show with Lower Level Customs and Advance Auto Parts I think. Independent SPL event. I'm taking the weekend off, so if anyone goes, good luck :)

SPL Blazer
05-21-2010, 09:51 PM
I just checked the car shows forum and it's listed on there, I noticed it a few days ago but didn't really look at the date. I think I blew my transmission anyway, so I'm not going anywhere.

CRXBMPN
05-21-2010, 10:39 PM
man oh man sorry to hear that, that puts a hinder on things huh

SPL Blazer
05-22-2010, 12:17 PM
Yeah a little, figures too cause I just spent a decent amount of money on a new amp and my Rockford EPX2 broke, so I really hope it's not the trans and it doesn't cost me $2k to get fixed.

Mr. Slate
05-22-2010, 07:42 PM
I feel your pain Steve. I've been there.

I heard the car show at this show had a good turnout, and the judges didn't really judge the cars, they just looked at them and walked away. But nobody I've talked to has said anything about the SPL portion of the show, guess it was quiet over there.

CRXBMPN
05-24-2010, 09:38 AM
a buddy of mine who told me about it hasnt gotten @ me as to whether he went or not, but glad i worked OT and mowed my lawn instead of wasting a trip to NH :)

SPL Blazer
05-24-2010, 09:44 AM
The db Drags 3X in NH in 2008 had a lot more people hitting that one, and that had a bad turnout.

CRXBMPN
05-24-2010, 01:03 PM
you talking about Jesse's show? yeah..........

Mr. Slate
05-24-2010, 04:39 PM
Guess no one actually attended?

SPL Blazer
05-24-2010, 05:49 PM
I asked a couple guys that went to the car show but they didn't notice any SPL going on, and they didn't hear any.

There's a couple people that posted on our Facebook page that they did the SPL part, waiting to hear back how many actually did it.

SPL Blazer
05-25-2010, 11:05 AM
I was told that they charged $25 to get in the gate, and another $25 to compete in USACi. $25 is pretty decent for a 2X fee, just ***** you'd have to pay the losers at the Dragway $25 to get in.

Mr. Slate
05-25-2010, 12:03 PM
It was $17 at the gate.

SPL Blazer
05-25-2010, 12:32 PM
$17 was the spectator charge, $15 if you had the flyer. It was $25 to get your car in for the car show, then an additional fee depending on what you were there for, drag racing, SPL etc.

Mr. Slate
05-25-2010, 06:37 PM
Oh, OK. Honestly $50 isn't bad for people who are seriously going to finals or for people that are doing the points thing. Englishtown is a 1x event and it cost a total of $45 to get in and compete.
If I were looking to go to finals then this cost wouldn't be an issue for me.

Had ralph given us that info more of us would have probably gone.

SICK GV
05-26-2010, 12:41 AM
You dont need the 2x event for an invite to finals. The N. East gets a points curve. If your a member and you've competed one time you get an invite for that year. Im picking and choosing which USACi event if any I go to this year. Ill probably only go to a regional event if they have one this year just to get a legal score on the B&K. Im sure my team will be at lot of them but Im diggin this legal comp style at the moment.

Mr. Slate
05-26-2010, 11:24 AM
Guess what they charge for a B&K run...............

SICK GV
05-26-2010, 06:41 PM
Not as much as Ill spend at the DB Drag 3x/TNESPL 3x in NY in June. Between fuel, motel, and competing out of both orgs that day Ill gladly fork up the B&K cost if the time comes.

05-26-2010, 06:52 PM
That definitely won't be a cheap show, should be fun though :D

A friend of mine was in the car show and he said it was cool because none of the "loud" guys showed up so they got to win extra trophies

SICK GV

Hey Mike when you say a "friend" of yours do you mean the young Latino boy you ram :cuddle: Just curious. Didnt know you had friends :laugh:

There's a USACi show in Brockton Mass coming up on June 12th, I called them and they said the show is from 4-8pm. Hope that show doesn't run too late, I don't really wanna be in Brockton after dark.

Its all good. I'll bring my piece with me.......:violent:

They used to have a police detail when Slapshow had their shows there, but they also drew a big crowd with the car show part. Wonder if Mark is gonna have a car show at this one too.

We wont be there. Can't do Saturday shows when your running an audio store.

I'll try and make it, maybe put my new Atomic amp on my old Fi's and see how they like the power.

05-28-2010, 02:36 PM
yeah man we dont want you to get show up and not make the Sanford show... bring the baby and keep the sh!tty diapers as ammo! noone like poo flung on them! then again that would probably be considered some sort of terrorist warfare lol.

Mark has been trying to convince Bumper to Bumper to move the time up, but they won't move on the time. I'm gonna call them and act like just a regular competitor and see if they will move it up to 2pm for everyone.

SPL Blazer
06-01-2010, 03:24 PM
LMOA, I just called Bumper To Bumper and asked if he could move it up to 2pm start time, I told him he would get more people there if we knew idt would be over before nightfall. The ******** at the shop told me that I could take all the cars that won't come out and shove them up my ***, then hung up on me. No offense to Mark, but I won't be there now.
