My stock radiator cracked the first time I went up there while my 97 was turbo'd. It can be hard on your car up there, thats for sure.

I haven't seen Mike run in awhile. Think I saw him last at a Bristol event.

I'd be happy with 160rwhp and some sticky tires up there honestly, lol.

I'll be there if I haven't been shipped off to NM by then. Of course, being local helps a lot.

I think you would just about need a track prepped turbo car to run up there, if you actually run decently hard. Like i said before, I had a blast with 130whp and azenis (when those were THE tires) and suspension. I was staying with **** i would have never stayed with on the track.

That's pretty close to my setup (BRP stg1, RE 01's). Know I couldn't handle much more.

Now. How about doing something with my registration problem on the RAGS forum. Sent you an email.

Not sure where I'll be at this year, probly in a room at the crossroads motel. I'll try to track you guys down, might come up that Sunday if your up there that early.

Let me rephrase, I would be happy with 160rwhp, xidas,a front sway no rear sway, 15x9s with r888s/nt01s, xp8s, 3.9 LSD with a 5spd. So like Mr. Burke said, a race prepped miata lol.

Dave, I dont check webmaster emails much, sorry. Forward the email to flier129 AT hotmail DOT com and ill try to get you sorted out. I thought you already had an account on the forum?

BTW, r888s on my stock 94 are a complete blast up there. Way too addicting lol

Leaving Toronto on Friday morning taking some scenic (read: sideways ) roads down to arrive Sunday late afternoon. Staying at Fontana Resort in of the big Magnolia cabins. There should be, at various times, my silver '00, red '93, sunburst '92, red MSM '04, Lava MSM, BRG '95, Cheezwhizz '10, Mahogany '00 - maybe others

"having some cooling issues" and being a member of this board is unacceptable.

Fontana makes the event a lot easier to attend really. A LOT bigger and more open.

Some of the old schoolers still like it better at Tapoco.

A larger presence from this forum would make the event even cooler

OK.

If there's a bunch of MT going do we want to hook up for a brew or two?
