East vs. West Rules and Regulations

Summary:

The "east vs. west" shootout was created by Pat D. (tuff240) to help motivate the group by creating a friendly yet competitive event we could all participate from our home towns. The goal is to lay down the fastest time you can and earn points for your side spending the time you have improving your times and power output to hopefully grab the bragging rights for the following year.
So far the results have been:

2005 - East
2004 - West
2003 - East

How The Competition Works:

Turbobricks members from each side visit a track throughout the course of the year, record their fastest 1/4 mile time and submit it to the contest admin. The idea is to work on your cars performance throughout the year returning to the track, grabbing more points, and updating your time.
The points scheme is laid out to provide a much larger spread than in the previous years. It should be more motivating, making even a weekend of minor modifications rewarding at the track as well as for your team.
Each side is divided up into 3 classes of cars. Essentially there are now 3 competitions running simultaneously per side. Each class is equally important since the final victory in that class holds 1/3 of your sides total wins.
At the end of each year all the points are tallied up for a final count in each vehicle class. The side with the majority of class wins is declared victorious and thus has the bragging rights for the next year.
In addition to our North American battle, we’ve decided to add the rest of the world into their own competition. We’ve divided up the most common countries represented throughout the community into 2 opposing groups. They will battle it out with the same guidelines.

The Split:

Please verify the side you are grouped in by state. The states are grouped as evenly as possible by member representation. The west gets Hawaii, the east gets Puerto Rico. If we have forgotten or over looked any other represented US, Canadian, or Mexican governed land masses please let us know so we can assign it a side.

For the rest of the world, please find your country in one of the two teams: (Note: If your country is not on the list, please pick a side you want to represent and notify the contest admin so he may add it.)
