CA and TX crews both have it too easy. Pretty much year round driving, lots of tracks to choose from within a couple hours drive and anywhere from 5-25 FI Miatae at any given event. Here in the NW we have three tracks in a 400 mile radius. When Curly and I drove a couple sundays ago it was the first time, out of 15 track day's, I'd seen another FI Miata. You all have it too good! I bet you even compare notes, modifications and can help each other out with parts, projects and tuning. Aaack.

I run in a wolf pack... of one.

I tried to give Savington a beer today but he said mother wouldn't appreciate it. He was born in the 90's.

I really want to make my car reliable enough to drive it to and from the event. After what I wen through this weekend, I've realized that making a street car ultimately reliable to do this would be a real accomplishment...because I'm not going to win **** in my car in a street tire class.

Hustler wishes I was 17. He tried to lure me into the bathroom with a Tootsie Roll that wasn't all chocolate.

I appreciate the beer offers, but I still had a pile of driving to do and I'm a few months short of 21.

shouldn't be too difficult once you've ironed out the initial bugs. i've been daily driving and tracking my car for the last 2+ yrs. when it has broken, i've been in town or made it home. but my chassis has 198,000 mi. just over 100k have been turbocharged. motor has probably 50k on it. and my tranny just broke at 195,000 miles. that's drag racing since 1998, and since i bought it in '07, i've done at least 18 auto-x weekends, 1- auto-x school, 2 rally-x events, 16 pca de/tt events, 10 nasa de/tt events, 1 redline time attack 3 day event, 2 drag race events, (only cost $5 more than just watching so i figured what the hell) 1 tdr track day :-), and i'm going to a drift event next weekend. if my piece can handle that ****, yours should have no problem.

i plan on making it out to the west coast this year. i would have went last year, but there was an awesome event at vir that i wanted to enter, and i've always wanted to drive that track too. VIR full was incredible, the entire place was awesome. otherwise i would have gone to laguna seca. but after seeing the speedventures calender this year, and hearing so much about them, i'm thinking buttonwillow or thunderhill in sept./oct.
