Question How about a meet/dyno day/kart day?

Okay, it seems like there are more people joining daily so thought it would be fun to have some of us in the NE/mid-atlantic get together.

Likely attendees would be the legendary olderguy (who can fix your car by just looking at it ) , myself (who is one step away from a new engine), Stripes (can you say save on shipping of the IC new kit?), and hopefully many, many more... If we're really lucky, we might even be able to get TurboTim out to see the one of a kind twin turbo setup.

Talking with several people, it looks like we would be looking at mid to late Sept. Options are:

#1 just a meet at a location convinent to have the most people make it
#2 a dyno day (you don't have to dyno to come) in SE PA so about a 2 hour drive from most of PA/NJ/DE/MD and probably 2-3 hours for northern VA
#3 kart racing in DE that is again about the same drive for everyone.

Depending upon how many people can definitely make it, we could try to do all three, but it would take some firm commitments to reserve dyno time (weekends are usually busy) or kart track time (for a larger group).

Just trying to get an idea of interest early so we can make this happen. Also, like before, I'll even offer my guest bedroom to anyone who is willing to come from really far away, including airport pickup and drop off!

I will come. Mostly because I like go-karts, not you all.

I vote for holding the meet in ... NOVA (preferrably) or near Philly, cause I get free lodging. Anywhere else.. is uncivilized. And theres a 10 dollar off each way coupon from jetblue right now if you want tickets to fly here

Consider this my beer contribution:

The following days are definitely no good for me: Sept. 16 and 30, both saturdays. With enough notice I can probably swing any other weekend day.

Dyno is in southeast PA, kart track in northern DE, good eats and roads are plentiful all around. If you are serious about coming, I live about 15 minutes from the Philadelphia airport (PHL) and would be more than happy to do drop off/pickup.

Dyno is located here: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=999+Ga...0.045417&hl=en

Kart track is located here: http://www.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en...,0.686646&om=1
