    47 people is barely anyone, so chances are (unless a **** ton of people randomly show up) tons of runs are to be had.

    I'd be afraid of my car falling apart if I did actually race though. I'm not prepped at all, and I've never done it before. Plus, doesn't it cost loot?

    1. You can drive as hard or as slow as you want, and if I haven't broken something, I highly doubt you'd break anything. And trust me, I've seen people drive VERY slow. It's no big deal to go easy.

    2. Ricer kids that leak oil and gas everywhere show up to the north jersey ones, you'll be fine. Prep isn't required, only painters tape for numbers and class marking.

    3. I, or any other SCCA member with 2+ years experience can ride along with you to help you see where you are going (they really encourage this for first timers). Plus if you get there early, I'll walk it with you after I change tires.

    4. $50, make you holla. $40 if you are SCCA member.

    I don't have $50 approval from the ol budget office in this pay period, but I think it would be awesome if we planned a small clubdub hangout at one of these sometime in the next few months. Just would need a bit of advance notice.

    That's really cool Stan. I'd love to take up that offer sometime. Same with my budget this pay period...but the June one actually is looking alright for me and Warminster obviously isn't too far away. Do I need a helmet (I have one at parents if so)?

You can register for the event using the links above, just need to sign up for motorsportsreg.com. If you wanna come out to the June one, let me know. I'll definitely be there both days.

    In other news, I ordered some fender flares and spoke to my tire guy about tires.. The path to 285/30/18 Hoosier's has commenced! They are meant for a Mk2 VW, but a few guys on nasioc made them fit pretty well. Close enough for me anyway.

    Flares: APTuning.com - Automotive Performance Tuning - MK2 Fender flare Set

    NASIOC post with these flares and 17x9's: NASIOC - View Single Post - Fender flare awesomeness

    Now I just need wheels! And to figure out what I want to do with the two sets I currently have...

    Yeah, for $45 plus a few cans of WRB paint from GrimmSpeed, I don't think you can really beat it. I'll make sure to document to do a decent write up. Just gotta figure out how I'm gonna get them on there once they come in.

    Don't need moar low, need moar meat.

    Had a BLAST at Warminster today. Course was awesome, talked to some great suby people. And made some improvements in my driving with the extra fun runs we did (9 in total). I REALLY cleaned it up on my last runs compared to the video below.

    Best timed run: 40.055
    Best unofficial run: 39.15X (WHY WASN'T I DRIVING LIKE THIS EARLIER?? ran through my head)

    Place: 1/2 ESP
    PAX: 40/126
