yeah i couldnt convince her to sleep outside in sleeping bags especially since its our time to get away and be free, so yeah we'll just do the hotel like i always do, but this time i wanna come and hang out with you guys there at the track.

Shane,
last year the route i took was going through LA, then Mississippi, and through kentucky and Tenn. i see another route thats a completely different direction though, what did you have in mind exactly and where will you be going through? im always open to take another route if it means being able to drive to the shootout with other Galant VR4's.

Quoting vr4play:

I just found out that there will be no race tire class for the auto-x this year. Apparently they didn't like me kicking there ass with fastest time of the day. I need to find the rules for max effort cause I think that's where I'll be. I don't think I'll be that much slower on street tires as the course was too slow to take advantage of them so hopefully I can do well this year.




what is your tire/wheel setup?

My current setup is Rota grid 17x9.5 with hoosier A6 275/35R17 tires. This year I'm looking at 17x9 with 255/40R17 BF Goodrich G force Rivals.

Quoting thecman02:

I know I can knock off at least a half second on the quarter mile. Autocross I was cutting .5 .25s off each pass. I just need to start off faster and figure out the course. I'm not sure if I'll be at this shootout, but it should be exciting because I'm sure Leon will make a push to get back on the podium. Tim should cut significant time off his quarter, and if you don't lose much in the autocross with street tires you'd have won this years event. I just hope that guy with the cut up 1g doesn't get any more power or he'll wipe the floor with all of us. I'm hoping that maybe I can get a new wheel setup and tuck a little more tire under my car, 255>245. It would be nice to take those damn max effort evos down a notch.




I have a LOT of room for improvement over last year!

As for cut-up DSM, I find it strange the we have to use street DOT tires, but... cars can be cut-up as much as you want... But it sounds like Dave doesn't want to change that aspect of the rule.

i haven't, i was on my way to one a bunch of years ago, i was 19 or 20 and my DSM broke down because i was stupid and did go fast shit instead of maintenance. thankfully i wasnt to far from my father shop. i was about 2ish hours from home, but only 35 minutes from my dads shop. it would be so easy to go if i was on the east coast still, like 5 hour drive tops...

It's not that exciting, and there was no real fighting. We were staying at the Best Western, and our room was by the parking lot. Instead of walking out drunk asses through the lobby, we were using a window to get to our bathroom. Some kid from Quebec who couldn't hold his liquor, flipped through the window and broke a bunch of stuff in our room.

We told him to go to the front desk and let them know what happened, since my credit card was used as a security deposit. When he refused (mind you I'm not sure he spoke English), we offered to help him take the broken items from his room to replace ours. Yelling and shoving ensued, the police showed up, and that poor kid got arrested.

I'm adding myself to the list, hopefully it goes better then my first shootout. My first shootout me and my buddy drove his Galant GSX and no shit made it 5 miles away from the hotel and the car just stopped. Had it towed the rest of the way and pulled the trans out in the parking lot with 2 scissor jacks and a few hand tools. The clutch disc had zero friction material left on it. We sourced a kit locally and made it to the festivities the next tday but it sucked for sure.

not sure who is going with me, but i know a few reno guys will be convoying it out there and were just gonna cruise rt 80. let me know if you want to head a little further north for your drive. once the time gets closer, like 70 days left well actually plan things out if you want.

Yeah sure we could do that, maybe we could meet somewhere north of Oklahoma like Kansas or something. Someone said they wanted to meet up in Oklahoma so we might take that route.
