This is a really fun event. Last year the turnout was low (me included -- I was in Europe). Would be nice to get participation up. Connie always gives us one of the year's prime weekends -- first breath of Fall weather.

It's a fun track! It was a pleasant experience as my first track day 2 years ago *sigh*

I'll make it this year.

I don't want this event to go away due to low participation, it was too much fun!

That's the E-mail I got from Connie today. Beat the bushes. NASA event at MSR-H doesn't help.

Can't lie, with the mandatory overtime and no vacation approvals at work...I haven't thought about Hallett since the last time I posted here. So sad.

Kinda looks like it's not in the cards for me this year...wife needs another car and also just started a new job so she won't be getting paid for about 2 months. 48 people isn't very many and I'd like to add to that number. I'll make some calls and check some stuff out to see what I can do, it was really fun and I'd like to do it again this year.

At a minimum, I'll need new front pads and rotors, brake fluid swap, tech inspection.

It sucks that I won't get my Bell helmet in time even though it was bought 3 months ago and my Necksgen won't be here by then either. Renting a helmet after I have already paid for a SA2015 helmet is pretty crappy.

Bring your car to my house sometime this weekend and we'll take care of your brakes and tech inspection. No more excuses. You'll be glad you did.

Sounds like a plan!

How long does tire rack take to ship tires? Thinking of picking up a set of RS3s or maybe Rival S. My tires are a couple years old and the rears in particular probably won't handle a couple days at the track and still be usable on the street. They are down to just over 3/32.

If it comes from their Lousiana warehouse, a couple of days. Add another day for the Indiana warehouse. It would be tight, but doable I think.

I signed up for Friday and Saturday and got the hotel booked!

OG Racing told me that since my helmet won't arrive in time, they will reimburse me for my rental helmet. Awesome customer service!

On the other hand, im really starting to dislike 16" wheels. I don't think I can get the 15" wheels I want in time. Made some calls and it's not looking good unless I pay hundreds in shipping. Poor planning on my part...

It runs all day, like 8-4 I think.

Dustin, wheel/tire packages from TireRack are pretty sweet. They show up balanced and ready to bolt on! They have lightweight Enkeis, Advantis and Konigs. They don't have 6ULs though.

I'm planning to take my wet tires with me as well. 225 RS3V2s mounted on 15x9 Advanti Storm S1s. A bit long in the tooth (Spring 2015), but if you get in a pinch . . . . I "think" these will work on your car without fender rolling.

According to tire rack, the 15x9 Advanti Storms with 225/45/R15 tires will fit an NB without mods.

I'll find out for sure next Wednesday, I ordered a set in matte gray! Why matte gray? Because they were the only ones I could get in time!

I think it's going to look hilarious at stock ride height. I also think my bumpstops are going to hate life lol
