It's way the hell down there, but I'll go. I've even got some "slicks" to use, too!

That sounds awesome!...It's about a 4 hour drive for me, but shouldn't be too bad with a couple dvd's on....my only worry is for my transmission, i don't know if it'll be up to much abuse. Maybe i'll take 8, 11, and 14 psi runs too see the differences on paper...i'd run more if i had the fuel and a stronger trans....so that's my plan. I'll be in touch about meeting up beforehand. cheers.

thats a heck of a drive pete, but if you wanna come down thats cool. I've got a spare bedroom if you need a place to crash.

02-20-2003, 05:33 PM
eh, just found out i can't come down. i have to dj that night in pennsylvania. I'll be down for it next time. Take some pics and make some stories! ...dana, i have a freind in college in maryland, i'd probably stay with her if i came down. :boink: :boink: :boink: thanx anyhow tho. have fun!

This sounds like fun. I'm definitely in. Hey Michael, better get that compression tested.....

If it's an open test and tune day, I bet it will be pretty busy....

Did you ever hear of the time or price details? I'm wondering if the weather might put a damper on this anyway..... I guess we should call the track on friday.

Chris: i havent called the track yet, but im pretty sure its $12 entry, and opens at 9am. I will call them tomorrow at work as its a ld number from here

I'm running the snow tires! I don't suppose I'll have results like John Lane, so I should probably save my money.
