I'm in North Dallas near where the DNT and 190 intersect. At this point, I have yet to track a Miata. Still need to get the spare engine to a machine shop for some love.
Do you ever drop by the local meets?

I'm in Irving. I haven't hit the track yet either. I have hit 2 local meets in Plano. I have the yellow ricer.

I plan on hitting Hallet with Hustler, Johnwag, Robbie, and Machizmo.

I just graduated from A&M in '06. Man i loved that place. I used to drive the buses for a couple years and that was a blast. The only place i really go to is TWS about 2 or 3 times a year. We should all go out to TWS some time at a porsche club event or TWS performance school day.

Hustler. You hang out at A&M? I used to go to parties over off of Foch and Nagle all the time at this guy's house who had a bad *** little orange MK1 GTI.

I'll definitely sign up now for the 25th and 26th event. I may also try for the April 5th day too. Hopefully I won't have any more cooling issues.

I should (BETTER) have my car running well by then so if I can make it, that sounds like a good time. I've done hundreds of laps at TWS on a bike but not a single fast one in a car. I did drive my truck moderately fast around the NASCAR banking once. They did not like that

Who is hosting the track day? Link?

Never mind, found it
http://www.texasworldspeedway.com/in...?action=school

So... driving school... What is the scoop if it is my first time there? If I show them my motorcycle road racing license, and recite in detail the track layout from memory, will they still neuter me on speed or let me go fast?

Sign up at ClubRegistration.net

They may start you out in the Blue group possibly and place an instructor with you just to "make sure" you know you're way around the course and are coherent enough to recognize other cars around you. From there, you can be solo'd in the blue group and asked to be moved into yellow if you are completely dominating blue group people and its getting annoying for you.

Not to far. About 20 miles. I work about 5 miles from there.

My miata doesn't see the track. It's quite unfortunate. But I am running at TWS this weekend with CVAR. Should be fun.
