Booked up this week and thru the weekend, but we can take a peek at it next week some time. Glad it's behaving in the cold!

Saturday is a morning meet in Sac, head out for the drive or drags, your choice, bbq in the afternoon. All of that is more Sac based. M6 shens saturday night, some shens possible friday night depending on who's around. Sunday is the show obviously.

We're planning to do 2 drive routes again this year, fast and slow. Those that wanna roll in the fast group, bring your A game. I stepped it up a little on mine with tuning and suspension adjustments, be prepared to hang, barring traffic.

Harald...if you're gonna run up front, fix your dang brakes! We don't need a repeat of 2 years ago. lol

Maybe I'll try to light a fire under my a$$ and put my car together. Though I don't know if I'll be up to a long trip right off the bat until things are broken in a bit (rather then broken in on the side of the I 5).

I think I'll make it out this year. I'll be definitely down for drags but maybe not with slicks. I'll have to make the long drive back.

Me too. Planning to drive my Volvo this time. I think it'll make the 4k mile round trip without breaking.
