I knew you were on the fence, so does that mean you are in now?

there isn't a limit as far as i know. this is an open track day. they aren't spending alot by just opening the doors. i think they have been averaging 15-20 per trackday. like i said before, the open track day happens no matter what. (almost) plus i'm sure a few people will just show up and register day of event. we should have a wide open track to practice your line, try different susp. settings etc....

i'm planning on being there. I hope that 3-4 hour window of cloudy holds true.

Getting matt's truck and trailer tomorrow night.

Robert, bring trey's bumper. i'll take it back with me if he's still planning on buying it.

i'm about ready to move to a city along the equator to get out of this shitty weather.

I will get one ready. Someone else needed the one I had sitting around for him. Shouldn't be a problem

This is shockingly true. This morning no one noticed that I was out yesterday, and I just got off the phone about a parish double-dipping my grant programs. lol

Austin gets less rain and we have UT girls.

As of now I'll be there to watch. Have to save my money for the H2R trackdays.

It looks like I'm going to be a no show.

All i have are near slick NT01's. I managed to flatspot my street tires last time at the track. Ironically i was running on street tires to save the NT01's for this event.

Good luck to all that go, I'll try to be better prepared for the next one.

make sure you take your nt01's though. never trust the forecast 100%. it looks like rain early. might stop by the afternoon though. that's how it was 3 wks. ago at hhr. still got a dry session in.

It's a monsoon!

My Miata nearly drowned on the way to class this morning.

Good luck and drive safe if you're coming.

I'll hang out and catch up with a few of you guys.

can you give my kick-panel to Johnfag?

I wish the weather weren't so shitty. I just didn't make sense to pass out in the gym yesterday from illness, and take off a day from work when its pouring rain...and I can run at MSR in the gorgeous 70* weather tomorrow.

Next time, bitches.

According to the radar it is raining like a **** at College Station right now. I think you have the right idea Hustler. The weather tomorrow should be fantastic, except there may be the usual drainage river across the two straights (Big Bend to Rattlesnake, Ricochet to Little Bend). Makes braking more fun
