Well if I can get this deal done and get the GVR4 before I get home from this deployment and it's in time to come up there I will definitely make the trip. Rolling into Buschur's with a caravan of GVR4s would be awesome! My wife is driving my Evo and I'm trying to find someone else to drive my '90 Talon. We shall see. I've had my room at the Motel 6 booked since November or early December. I'm trying to get there the afternoon of the 16th and then leave early(ish) monday morning. I'm not sure how far the Motel 6 is from the track or Buschur Racing but we should find somewhere to meet up and all roll in together. I hope to meet all of you there. I'm probably going to get a shirt made that says "Hi! I'm Josh, JMelocik on every forum I'm on."

That would be pretty sweet if all the GVR4's rolled around in a huge pack everywhere. I'll be staying at the all American inn right near the track and most likely be cruising with my friend Zak in his 92 KG GVR4.

Anyone who would like to contact me during all this feel free to call or text me @ 713 534 2023 Mike

Quoting GSX_TC:

Most likely Zak will be the only GVR4 running out there and aiming for 10's =)




I'd love to run a 10 but most likely will be somewhere in the 11's if I can drive even a little decent.

I'll probably be able to hangout dyno day, but saturday my car is getting flogged around in the Max Effort DSM OS class, and Sunday I might have to park with my sponsor/booth. If not I'll park my car with the other VR4's.

I hated that there wasn't any GVR4s that even went down the track last year. I will be only running 12's, but I am bringing 1501 on a trailer just to make sure it makes a pass. We had the oil filter housing bolt come loose last year a few miles before our campsite. Thank goodness my friend Mark was like a ninja shutting the car off.

I'm saving my first pass for the shootout.

Shootout is one month from this weekend. Only 4 weeks left to get all those JSBs back on the road!

Mike, you could camp with us. We camp all the time, so it is hardly roughing it. The Milan campsite isn't too far away, and it is filled with DSMers. Or my friend Mark would much rather be in a hotel so maybe we could pitch in on the room you have booked, and crash on your floor. I thought is was so cool you made such a journey to come last year, I am more than happy to help you make it this year. Especially since its only a 2hr drive for me.

That, my friend sounds like a plan. I'm trying to get my girl to come with me so that way she could cover the hotel portion of the trip lol, but if she can't come along then I will take you up on That camping site offer. I remember that place from last year, I went over there checking out all the cars.

We could also stick to the room I have booked but it's like 500 bucks for the days of the shootout so I'm pretty sure nobody wants to spend that much but let me know. But give me a call or text come that time so we can figure out what we are gonna do. 713 534 2023

I am making plans on bringing the One Lap VR4 this year to compete in the max effort class. The One Lap Evo X, once it gets an engine installed, is also rumored to be coming too. We'll be rolling in Friday evening and then hitting the Econo later that night for some fun and to meet people. I will have a couple of different versions of a ruff edit of the One Lap reality show with me so if you want a peek bring a beer.

I am out of vacation days this year so I have to sneak out of work early on Friday and then make the 330 mile, 5.5hr drive to Norwalk. If I get there before 7pm I'll be lucky. So the Friday events for me will be limited to cruising around Friday night and just hanging out.

Action shots would be great and I would love to meet as many VR4 guys as I can so please come say hey when you see the car. The drag racing portion isn't going to be much for me. I might take the aero off I might not. But with a junkyard transmission and a 2-spider center diff I won't be launching the car so if it runs mid-12's I'll be happy.

Sunday I might do some test-n-tune or Bracket1 drag racing but that is just for show, and again, won't be anything special. Might line up that POS One Lap Evo X for a grudge race. That would be fun. I'd leave the aero on for that.

Then the plan is to hit the road back to New York in the afternoon.

Hope to see you guys there.

Tim

Stay in Milan, that's where I'm staying. I know the Quality Inn still has rooms.

Tim,

I'll be Parked with cones beside me with signs made saying reserved parking for Galant VR4's that way no other cars park with us, last year 7 of us were out there, this year it's looking to be double that. Oh and if possible I would like to take pics of just my car and the one lap VR4 together at some point if that's ok with you? I believe Dsport magazine will be out there again covering this so they better get some footage of your car haha. I'll be staying at the all American inn but I plan to come by all the other places to see who all is around.

Cheers
Mike

There's still a few rooms left at various hotels in the area, David Buschur said this year people can camp out at the track. So that's a plus if you have stuff to camp out with.

Mike, what's the details about camping out the track? Does it cost money, or just find a spot and post up? We booked a spot at Milan, but the track would be more convenient for obvious reasons.

If anyone want to stay at our campsite, its $15 extra for a tent and person/car. We only have one tent and car going so far, so there will be space.

Thanks for the link. We already reserved the campsite at Milan travel park, so I guess we're going to stick with it. I camp at the track for the NHRA race there, and its a damn good time. I wonder how the Shootout camping will compare. It would be nice to wake up and already be there. I didn't know Buschur was having a bon fire Friday night either, sounds interesting.
