Default Managed to score an internship with MoTeC! Anyone in NC?

Thanks to FSAE and some mad skills yo, I managed to get an internship with MoTeC next semister! I am super excited, it sounds like it will be a really fun job and it is right up my ally (I do engine tuning for the FSAE car). I already worked two semisters with US Air, and while interesting, it was sorta boring (and not really what I want to do for a career). Hopfully this will continue into a job after graduation.

It is about 20min north of charlotte. Anyone in the area? I should have my miata down. Any good recommendations for bars/places to eat/things to do?

I gotta admit, I am also glad I get to miss half of Pittsburgh's winter and spend it in warmer weather. The average temp is around 16 degrees higher in January, god I am not going to miss Pittsburgh winter.

Just wanted to share my good luck!

CMP is about an hour south of Charlotte which is a great track. You should come out at least once to run it.

Also I want to see a Motec System Exhaust developed and produced during your internship there.

If I take my flux core welded exhaust and put a MoTeC sticker on it does that count?

Ill have to get to CMP for sure.

I want to sit in on the business meeting where it's decided that a PnP MoTeC box for a ZX-14 should specifically include nitrous control.

I am going to be living in a place a few miles from where I am working.

FYI, I will be in Mooresville, right off of 77 for a more exact location.
