Battle Born Quattro 2015 - In Pictures

Postby alxdgr8 » Sun Oct 25, 2015 6:00 pm

Had a great time attending Battle Born for my 4th consecutive year and sponsoring for a 1st (and not last).

Arrived early Thursday evening at Iroz Motorsport

Got to meet the 696whp 'Mule' and have a fun ride with Hank...ask him about our meeting with LV's finest.

Strapped the 7A CGT onto the dyno. 034 ECU actually made less power than the stock one.... 122whp/135wtq, reading was low but the on-road results made me feel good about the car.

NICE!!

I've been patiently waiting for a mega photo post from BBQ.

Are those to red Urq's Mars and Tornado? If so, those are great shots to show the difference. I've never seen the two side by side before.

Yep, white wheels is an '83 Mars and silver wheels is an '84 Tornado. After seeing them side-by-side I gotta say I like Mars a lot more with it's more orange-ish hue.

Awesome work Alex, thank you! The pictures are awesome. So many clean and fast cars this year! Nick's car is ridiculous.

Someday when I have nothing to do for 2 weeks I'll drive out, haha.
