I will burn about 10-gallons in 45-minutes so i need to get something worked out on fuel.

I can't run the 9's because I can't get them mounted in time, nor do I have a vehicle to transport them for tire mounting, and I still need to roll fenders so they fit.

shut up jake! gah! anyway's, yeah, i'm on 205 NT-01's too so it should be fun.

on fuel, you should be able to do 2 sessions atleast before refueling. you have an 1.5hrs or longer during lunch so you should have plenty of time to go to the gas station. that's what i usually do.

oh, and tires will hook up after a lap or two. i was at hhr a few weeks ago in the same conditions and it was real slippery at the start of the first lap, but were fine after 2 laps. plus the cold air made my car feel fast for such low boost!

If you do the math, two 30-minute sessions is longer than 45-minutes so i can actually do 1.5 sessions before I run out of fuel. I'll buy a 5-gallon jug to help get me by. When I drop below 1/2-tank my fuel pump screams.

Cowboy boots are the **** and get tons of bitches.


This just in: My GF may borrow her father's truck and pull my car to Houston for me, play tire monkey, and tell filthy trucker jokes to everyone in attendance.

they are 20 min. sessions unless they've changed. if you have a way to take fuel do it. i will probably make my korean friend carry mine to the track.

The custom built snipped toe boots from Ponder Boot company are the ****, and get tons of bitches. I have no pics currently but I'll wear them with shorts on Saturday.


I just talked to my dad and he wants to so, so scratch the GF from the list, add my father, several bottles of Absolute, his 43' motor home, and domination.

No slumber party now?

I have plenty of 5 gallon jugs that you can borrow, so no need to buy one.

i couldnt grow a beard if i wanted to.

When I did volunteer work in CT I didnt shave for a month, looked like peachfuzz, at least the hair on the top half of my head grows

I'll bring my impact wrench and some sockets and crap. dont think it will be worth bring out my autoX trailer as I dont have much crap to bring anway.

Forecast seems like no rain on SAT but a drop in temp low 33 high of 50, with Rain on Friday.

anyone rolling through houston on friday?

Anyone from the DFW area going? My trailer action keeps falling through and I'd love to be able to catch a ride back with someone if something bad happens.

The GF and I will be there Saturday, with 700mm telephoto lens and dslr in hand. What time do I get there for all the action shots?

Also, any special tool requests? I don't mind bringing down a few.

Cool, I think the action normally starts around 8am. Bring folding chairs, the grandstand is nice and covered but no seats.

For the cost of gas, and if you really, really needed a ride I could come get you. I have **** all to do on sundays anyways. Houston is so far though...
