I'm interested as well. It would also be a good opportunity for anyone in Michigan or nearby to take the Lake Michigan car ferry- https://www.lake-express.com/

3,700 lbs at half tank. Goal- 3,400 lbs
Best of 13.85 at 96 mph. Goal- 11's NA

Taking the ferry seems like a great idea. Saves wear and tear on the car and the driver!

Ya. I've never taken it before, but I've always heard good things. And the fact that it delivers right into Milwaukee is really nice.

I also just saw it used in the latest free episode of Roadkill. The guys used it to take the Draguar across the lake.

barring my car breaking in the summer, I'm definitely in. Guess I should make my battery relocation vaguely NHRA legal

That raises a good point: should we expect a detailed inspection to NHRA rules? That didn't happen at the track in Kentucky used for the Shootout. Obviously, we want everybody to be safe, but if the track expects full compliance, I may not get to run more than once (no rollbar in a car that should now go much quicker than 11.49).

In my experience GLD is pretty lax on their tech overall, every time I went all they did was pop the hood and wiggle the battery, nothing more. But it’s been quite a few years since I went and didn’t have any flagrant violations like I do now.

What's it take to make the battery legal?

I'm seriously considering it, but I only want to do it once.

-External cutoff switch

-Battery box or trunk firewall

-Battery vent

-Alternator cutoff(there’s a by the book way and a simpler functionally equal way, but your at the mercy of the inspection.)

I have none of this

I booked a room at the host hotel. Not clear how to register for the event or the dyno session or the drag racing as yet.

Just a couple things to update. Rich started a "Head Count" thread so you can see what members are coming. That is on the SCCoA forum, link on the bottom. Mostly Supercoupe cars I believe.

If you are coming from Illinois or South of Wisconsin and going to use interstate 94 West (But really North since your driving from Chicago to Milwaukee) please be careful. There is major construction on both sides and there are no shoulders to pull over on in case of an emergency. Especially if you plan to trailer your car. I would plan an alternate route.

Otherwise looks to be a good time, 16 people signed up so far and still less than two months away. Sign up is only 25 bucks. Obviously you pay for the dyno and track, but thats a bargain compared to the past SC Shoot Out Events. I will be there for sure with a cooler of beer to share.

Any questions you can contact Rich or Scott on the website. Any questions for me contact by email: [email protected]

Has the drag racing format been figured out? Classes? Dial-In? Heads up?

Dyno canceled, from Rich

"All,

We were just informed that there has been a sickness in the dyno operator's family and they will not be able to accommodate us for the Midwest Bash. We have talked to other speed shops in the area and have had no luck securing a dyno. We have decided that in lieu of the dyno there will be a car show with trophies in the parking lot of the hotel on Saturday. We apologize for this change in plans. If you would like to cancel your registration for the Bash because of this change let us know and we will issue you a refund. Thanks and hope to still see you at the Midwest Bash! Website has been updated to reflect this change.

Midwest Bash Planning Team"

This is a disappointment for me, because I wanted to put the hurt on the V6 guys with my V8 power, but I’m still coming.
