Here's Paul doing more fast things with it at the NEQ's recent NHIS event:
(click on the image for a bigger one...there's another pic of him in
there, as well as one of Chris Miller in his Coupe). He's got a set
of decent 18x20 prints of that photo, too bad Adorama Pro Lab managed
to completely trash them($50 order with almost a dozen prints,
absolutely every single one damaged in one way or another- they're
not getting another dime of my business; first and LAST order).
As a comparison with Paul's times in the stock wagon, years ago I
went to the same strip and best time was 14.914 at 94. Half tank of
gas, trunk and back seat full of crap, heavy 17" wheels on the
car(adding 60lb alone...ugh) and a few little boost leaks, but Ned's
III+. Still, my top run was #88 out of just under 200 runs by all
the Audi folk. No problems beating all the stock S4's and most
modified A4's. No chance with the modified S4's of course.
If the bastard had told me he was going last night, I would have seen
what my super-low-drag, aerodynamic(195 profile, yeah baby!) snow
tires could do ;-)
Oh, and, folks, I just wanted to share (since he didn't invite me)
Paul's times from that event with the grey wagon, which is actually
4 325 Paul R Pre '95 Audis 17.554 79.12
6 325 Paul R Pre '95 Audis 17.746 80.58
5 325 Paul R Pre '95 Audis 17.752 77.11
Paul made 5th overall- 5th from dead last. I believe it was later
discovered one of the hoses was almost completely separated or some
