Yeah, Gary 'owns' MSR Cresson and Hallett, but perhaps he's vulnerable at TWS...?

i don't know, i think i could hang with him with my current tires, suspension and power. ( i had to turn the boost all the way down) at the tdr all miata trackday at cresson early this year, we were about even in the twisty parts, he just pulled on the straights. he did have a passenger, so maybe he was toning it down a little.

I'll talk with NASA officials and see what they might be able to do in facilitating this.

We don't need anything from NASA really. Nothing out of the ordinary. Just amb transponders.

so i only have my DD miata, that I use to autoX.

I would do the HPDE's (hell no am i wheel to wheeling my only car) but would anyone else be tracking a DD. I there are more inherent risk being on an open track.

That said if I can get what I need on my car by then I just might. 01+ header is comming and i'm trying to contact the PO to see what bar he had on the car so I can just bolt it right into the holes.

But if they know they will gain exposure through hosting it, they will likely help promote it!

^^ Yeah I figured that is what you had in mind, some synergy. Why not?

BTW where are you? Come get your hard top!

I'm sure you will be fine. HPDE 1 and 2 is very safe.

this is spoolin2bars: dammit i keep forgot to log in. (i'm on jakes computer obviously)
.
that would be awesome. but i don't want them thinking were doing anything unsafe. make sure they know that nothing would be different than any other hpde or tt. we're just compiling lap time data. only real issue i see is some instructors not liking the idea that their student is trying to get laptimes on their first event. if we even get any newbs. most of these guys have atleast a few trackdays under their belts. thanks in advance ryan.

Sounds like a good idea, but 'First, do no harm'.

Right now, what they don't know won't hurt them. I would hate to read that NASA came out against this idea and then all the potential sponsors ran away.

Need a roll bar (car is already drilled as PO had a bar in the car. Just need to double check if the sports bar will fit were the HC bar went as I need to fit my HT)

wanted to get a new suspension setup.
(Some GC custom rates + have my bilsteins revalved)

+ wanted some new wheels and tires (would be the 4th set currently owned for this car lol. Probably just end up usingsome old azenis on one of the OEM sets of sports package wheels)

got the 01 header in.

but an ER visit last week changed where some of my funds went :(

sorry to hear about the er visit. as far as that list of parts goes, that's a wish list. not a must have to do trackday list. even the rollbar could wait if you had to. you'd pass insp. with your hardtop. suspension would be nice but you could always save a little longer if needed and swap it out after the first event or two. same with the wheels/tires. (you've got four sets for god's sake!) i've been running on agx/ qa1 springs/ and ebay coilover sleeves for the last 2 years. and kickin' some *** if i must say so my self. i eat porsche's of all model's and levels of modification, z06 vettes, etc... so you can make do for another couple months if needed. i'm a pro at budget racing so your gonna have to do better than that if you wanna talk yourself out of it.

Hallet looks to be the only one that I know for sure I can't make it to. The rest seem to be a go.
