So got screwed by the stealership. Brought it in because I have a service traction warning on my DIC and a check engine light saying cyl.2 misfire. They had it for 8 days charged me 1100 bux and 2 miles after I leave the dealership all the lights and warnings start going off again. And the misfire is even WORSE than when I dropped it off. That was on friday. I wasn't able to get in touch with the guy I was dealing with yesterday (they are closed on the weekend) so I called GM and filed a claim. unfortunately work was crazy today so I wasn't able to call. Gonna try to call tomorrow and get this taken care of.
Also the steering knuckles are on backorder with no new release date
*sigh*
Everything else is either shipping or here already so I just need a weekend to start installing everything, but if my car is in the shop again I dunno if I'll have it ready for the TnT on may 1st

I was more asking about things to bring for the day. I assume you are given a spot that you will be posted up all day tweaking your car, hanging out and waiting for your heat. I assume you should have a cooler and a couple chairs or something, right?

bring some drinks, a chair, a hat, closed toe shoes.
you're free to park almost anywhere in the pits, no assigned spots aside from the chiefs parking.

Well, the Evo came and went, and I still never got around to going to one of these. I will definitely be there next time (7/17), but sadly I don't have a car of my own atm (I ride a motorcycle and occasionally )drive the family's grand cherokee).

I'm still torn between an NA/NB Miata, 914/4, 240Z, AW11 MR2 or an E36 coupe as my car of choice, but eventually I'll decide on one and get some runs in.

hopefully next time I'll do better than last place I'll have a new suspension setup and hopefully my new intake manifold will be in by next time so I can finally do my tune. Should def be able to post some better numbers

Next weeks course is the same as the last one except counter clockwise right?

tires tires tires, i could be top 20 overall in a stock miata with big race tires like mine has.
then practice practice practice! power means zip if you can't control it!

each month is a different layout, probably be going clockwise-ish instead of counter as we did this month.

Oh wait, yeah...thats what I meant. I'll be getting new wheels at the end of this year, once those go on I'll be able to invest in a decent set of tires for racing. Till then I'm kinda stuck with my dunlop sport sigs for now

boo for no fun runs this last time lol
I'm officially hooked! Only thing I'm bummed about is now that I'm hooked, it's nearly a month till the next race I'm trying to save for a new set of everyday wheels and tires so I can use my stock wheels to race. It's tuff finding a decent set of wheels in my lug pattern tho 5x110 ftl!

I got a quick question about 2 driver cars, specifically the issue of race numbers with 2 driver cars. I have a friend who is interested in trying autoX out, but is still kinda shaky about the whole thing. So I offered to let him drive my car at the next event. Everyone I've seen doing the duel driver thing had 2 sets of number magnets so it wasn't an issue but I only have one set for myself, and since my friend's never tried obviously he doesn't have a set. Do we do the tape numbers for him and try to stick my magnet on top and hope it doesn't fly off?

or use tape to make a 1 in front of yours.. say your # is 5, then it would be 15 for him. thats what most of us do without getting extra magnets

Does anyone run Mustangs in this? I've been thinking about it but I have a supercharged Mustang that might be a bit much for the tight cornering.

I haven't made it out this season yet (still trying to finish up rebuilding from the fire last febuary) but I remember a couple mustangs running last season. As well as a couple camaros, a vette, and an impala. Just get out there and try it out and see for yourself!
