I have no idea why I didn't. it was a pleasure chatting with you.
maybe I was just too carried away geeking out about flex fuel with you.
I can mail some to you if you wish, or I'll just sticker bomb your car next time I see you

Seriously though, it was interesting to hear how easily you got the flex fuel sensor working.

I had actually suggested that we mob into your garage, get someone to distract you and then see how many we could stick on the silver NB before you noticed us, but everyone was either chicken or distracted by other shiny things.

I'm fairly certain that I was the only one in the E group with forced induction, based on everyone else's speeds.

I was way too distracted by all the EFR goodness and K24 goodness in that garage.

I'll be there, camping next to Aidan haha. Going to try to instruct my dad. If they let me, I'll probably drive B group Saturday and instruct him Sunday. If they won't let me, I'll be in B group both days.

Super looking forward to it.

Ill be there also. I may or may not drive both days. I like driving, but I also want to ride in vendors cars. I haven't gotten the chance yet.

My girlfriend and I are planning on coming down this year. Probably only gonna be driving D group one day, possibly two days but we'll see how my money situation is when registration rolls around. Looking forward to it though!

I will make it to visit on Saturday most likely and of course you ORP(is that right?) guys are welcome to pit stop here. Only one guest bed but I am sure we could put a tent in the yard. Parking might be kinda difficult with a bunch of trailers though.

We're planning to make it this year... we've got reservations for the Chapparal campground.

Is there an Officially Unofficial hangout for MT hooligans?

Recommendations for run group for a high-intermediate HPDE driver in a VVT swapped NA? I've run MRLS several times on two wheels, so I know my way around the track, but never driven a car there.

For MRLS take whatever run group you think you belong in, and go up one. Lots of slow drivers.

What about if you haven't been to been to laguna seca before, cause that's the requirement for C. I know the layout of the track pretty well since I have a simulator set up that I built years ago, but never been there physically so I figured I'd do D. I think C might be better since my girlfriend and I are planning a couple track days together this summer and I'm doing Lemons again which would put me at 4-5 trackdays+ however many autox. At the same time, I don't wanna slow anyone down.

Suggestions?
