hey everyone, i was thinking we should get a meet together and cruise up to a track and try and work on our times. i think it would be cool to go with other redlines, and that way we could give each other suggestions, etc., and get some cool videos while we're at it. i'd like to go just to see how i stack up against all the other cars that would be there.

any ideas? i was thinking Great Lakes, since i don't know of any other tracks around here, but i'm open to going anywhere. should be a good time.

I'm game, it's alot less crowded than the Joliet one, and I'd love to get a couple of 1/4 mile tickets. Never been to an official track, only good 'ol country boy 1/4 mile tracks. Which is an abandoned subdivision development in Florida...

When? This weekend? Next?

here is the schedule

i think we should try and hit it up on a saturday, looks like they've got some 9-5 days we could get in a shitload of runs. i'm going to look it over. i've got to go to a wedding next week, and i'm not sure that this weekend would be good considering the weather...

i'll look into it

well, i'm talking to myself here, but i'm going for sure. the woman is excited to go (she likes when i race legally, not on the street) so it's on.

i'm trying to get my buddy who's brothe has a built up eclipse or talon (1st gen i think) to go, how built, i don't know, but he says they've put plenty into it. they've gotta put the engine back together, but he says it'll be done by then.

i'm also trying to get ahold of a friend with a badass WRX to come, but i've got to get ahold of him through the grapevine. i won't expect him to come as i guess he's pretty whipped. hopefully he'll show.

i'd like to get there early, so as to get as many runs in as possible in, so i'll probably be there around 9. hopefully we get a couple of more to come. bring girlfriends/wives, etc. to root us on an keep each other company.

kelly will be taking video of us, though i know for at least one run she'll want to be in the car (like i said, she has fun with it at the track).

well, let me know.

for a weekend it's 30 for driver/car, and 12 for spectators. not too bad considering you can stay the whole day. i guess on a really busy day, someone got in 8-10 runs. enough for me to get a good time, i'm sure of it

Yea, if I could make it seem like a 'family' event, I could get my girl to go as well, and she's a real shutterbug. Has a nice 35mm that we use for the good pics, and my digi for the everyday ones. We could get some great shots and footage out there. She'd go anyway I think...

tell her she's got company, kelly will be there for sure, and would love someone to hang out with while we're in the staging lanes

I vote for Kaukauna, considering it's about 15 minutes from my place. =)

But I could probably swing down next weekend. Gotta try out this K&N and header now that I got that damned exhaust leak fixed.

FYI.

You guys need to go on May 29, it will be import wars #2. It's open to imports and domestic's.
that'd be cool, but i'm sure it'll be busy as hell that day. i'm going on the 22nd for sure, maybe i'll go on the 29th too, but i'm not sure

this weekend should be nice though. i have a feeling after all the rain, it may be cool still, but temps are supposed to climb all week! if all goes well, we should have a really good day to go to the track on sunday, and with that import wars, hopefully people are waiting for that and won't show up on sunday, leaving us with a chance to get a bunch of runs in. i know i'm going for it!

You might want to rethink that, people might get the impression that you were drag racing it and could be turned off!


The 29th will be packed, but it's fun, drag racing, car show, sound system compition, GIRLS. If you get their early before 10:00 you can get 6 to 10 passes in by 11:00 when it start to get pack, then you'll get like 2 an hour till 1:00 when the bracket racing starts. From 1:00 till 5:00 you should get 1 per hour! Hope to see some people there.
