Default Petit Le' Mans '07, Anyone Going?

I plan to be at Petit this year again, just seeing if anyone else is going to go.

I don't plan to go this year, but it's right up the street from my house.

LMK what's up, maybe we can cook out or something.

Sure thing. Not sure what the plans are now but we are going to get in thursday and stay till saturday night. If the miata is going strong we'll take it instead of my ranger. Depends on if we camp out in the track or not.

This'll be the first time in 5 years that I've missed the PLM :(. I'll be in Florida, instead, for the $2007 Challenge.

google search "petit le mans"
http://www.google.com/search?client=...UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

First result is where it is held. http://www.roadatlanta.com

I too think participation is greater than spectation. I was going to work for BK Motorsports, then the g/f decided to go so I figured i better not.

Not knocking your trip, just in kevin's case I don't blame him for skipping. In my case, if it's going to be car stuff, then that means me working on my car. The list keeps growing.

Actually we all build our cars so we can work on them all the time, i swear that's what it seems like sometimes. Man I just want to finish this thing.

dude, I DROVE MY CAR to McDonald's this evening... And EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!! My afterstart enrichments seem pretty good, and the car was ready to drive within seconds of hitting they key. It's idling nice at 900 rpm, and idle recovers well coming to a stop. It pulls off smooth from a stop. It's cruising at the right a/f ratios. The overrun is working well. I'm getting 12 psi or so. It's actually the best it's been in a long time, and as close to 'civil, stock like street manners' that's it's had since it's had an altered greddy kit.

Ha, actually there is one problem. My driver's window stopped rolling down a couple weeks ago, and I haven't dealt with that yet.

Right now it's my **** that's breaking. The manifold support arm snapped at the motor mount and that's a MUST fix in my book, given it's an SSA mani. Then an exhaust hanger broke (I used some scrap rod that's about double a coat hanger thick and had a hard pull on it). Oh- and I'm half way thru the oil cooler swap - so I have no oil cooler now. I need to get the AN bungs on the new cooler and mount it in front of the rack- and shorten the oil lines. Then run some tubing from the ducts in the OE spoiler. And add an oil cooler fan. Also want to open up the bottom of the mouth to increase some air flow to the bottom of the rad (area with direct exposure to air flow). Still have to put the hole in the hood for the TA fender vent. Well, that's my short list disguised as a post in an unrelated thread. :gay:

I've got a lot of work right now (worked the last two wkends and one all nighter)- ya how it is when you're the only one in the company, if you don't do it, it doesn't get done and you don't make any dough. I plan on reemerging late Oct. when my larger project is put to bed.

I'll be there with a group of my buddies, probably a pack of 7-8 miatas. Keep an eye out for two black NA's with bfhgarage.com windshield banners. I'll look for your car, I'd like to see your turbo install.
