So, the Austin guys are down here either buying or building old-school, track-dedicated Quattro rocketships...
...the Houston guys apparently spend their time crashing their cars into potholes, getting their windows tinted, and um, eating BBQ (when they aren't being arrested at K-Mart)...
...what are the Dallas peeps up to? Just curious.
These subtle digs and well wishes for a good weekend brought to you by...

2.7tdallas got the joke. BTW, that is one FINE color (Andorra Red Mica). Great looking car.
Nick, I came this close [holds fingers 1 cm apart] from calling you and asking about the available 337 that you mentioned a couple of weeks ago. But, I have since calmed down (for now). Still, I really dig that car. We chipped one the other day and I was droolin'.
LCP, is your rocket going to be at TWS in October? Man, I really want to see that thing haul. Is it sorted out pretty well?
I probably have no chance of getting my car together by October, but who knows? I'm signed up, so I'll show up in something.

...tires might be a problem though. I don't think my Kumhos can make it through the whole weekend. I would imagine I'll be able to top 140 on the front straight, and hit about 115 on the back -- there's no way in hell I'll be able to take turn 7 flat out with the kind of horsepower I'll be applying all the way since turn 6. I won't be able to take turn 12 flat out either.

You need to drive mine...APR software and 2.5" downpipes with the Forge Motorsport IC. It rocks! :)

We're selling our Audi's (ChrisW sold his S4 Avant for a M3 Coupe) and we're dousing tourists with piss, so BEWARE! :)

San Antonio Express-News
Substance dumped on tourists was human urine
The mysterious liquid that was splashed on several River Walk pedestrians and a barge full of passengers Tuesday night was stale urine, probably from a portable toilet, health screeners said. Two unidentified men standing on a bridge over the San Antonio River doused about 23 people riding on a Yanaguana tour barge with the ammonia-like liquid...

...I can't believe that I was born there.
What about you, Ken? Going to be at the October event?

BTW, M Coupe...not the M3. :) and deal's not done yet. Anybody have a cargo plane?

Thats a turbo Q right?
BtW, Are those A8 Rims on that 200? Hard to tell from the angle.
08-26-2002, 07:44 AM
It's a 200 Turbo Quattro with the 20v I5 turbo engine. Same basic engine as the urS4.
The rims are the stock '01 A6 non-sport package rims. Guess where I got them? :) That will be changing though, I just bought PeteH's Oz Cronos for it.
08-26-2002, 07:45 AM
So where is the Coupe? Maria said you were looking at a yellow one.
08-26-2002, 08:03 AM
Of course they're from your A6. I should have figured.
There's a guy in Austin with a 200 TQ as well. Thats a great car to modify. I think the only difference is that the 200TQ uses a CIS fuel system and the urS4 is EFI. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Pete had some OZ Chronos eh? I can't picture what those look like off the top of my head, but I'm actually looking at custom ordering some 18X8 OZ Superturismo Corsa in white for my URQ.

The 200 20v tq is CIS. Also the 200 uses a distributor and has a different intercooler setup.

Especially since the car is white!!. If the OZ wheels were white, that would be a bad ass car.. Step 1 to making a Trans Am 200. LOL
Be sure to post a picture when you have them installed.
