Can't wait, hopefully we get to drive this track in the dry this year too. We'll be bringing 3 cars again and giving ride-alongs too.

I know a few people who came down ran afoul of AMP's sound limits last year weren't happy. I didn't see it posted anywhere on the event information. I know my car comes just under the limit (hi-compression VVT, RB header, test pipe, and Magnaflow exhaust. Per AMP's website, "The limit is 98 db at 50 feet from track edge, inside and outside for cars"

There's no excuse for a street car being louder than that anyway. And cops should be ticketing the fagg0ts on those Harleys as well. Get off my lawn!

Not riding Harleys saves a lot more.

Most of the deaths around here are with loud pipes and no helmet so I'd say the pipes don't help with traumatic brain injury.

Not sure yet. I've got to get motivated to finish my modifications and get the car back on the road right now. I just put a tubular subframe from V8 roadsters under the front and added a much larger radiator. Still have to do new undertray and alignment and figure a few other things out.

A few other issues I'm going to be a wimp about. I don't like track days in the heat very much, I worry about breaking the car and not being able to drive it the whole weekend, and I've got to carry even more spare stuff for a track day. Additionally, my buddies from down here usually can't take that many days off and last two years I had people riding with me up to the event.

Green / Novice is nearly full! Everybody keep their fingers crossed this year isn't soaking wet.

It's too expensive to trailer my car all the way down to this, and too far away to trust the car without bringing a trailer...

bump to a neat event! see you all as I hardpark at Fontana...
