Hello fellow bastards.

Just wanted to get this to the frontal part of the brain.

We are having our annual track day at TWS in Feb.

I've emailed TWS three times for date with no response but they are usually very slow at getting back to me on dates so I'm not worried.

As soon as I hear something I'll post up.

The skinney:

10- 20 minutes sessions like always. Price with be around $225-$250.

Entertainment will be provided by Sergio at the Fox and the Hound.


VRRRROOOOOOMMM!!!

Most of it is in the inside and the turns outside the over on the right.

You will go up on the bank next to the grand stands for the straightaways.

Nothing to fear. Tires...yes you will want decent tires.

New guys to road courses will be parred with an instructor on the first few sessions which will help show you the lines on the track and help you learn how to drive your car faster.

Mucho fun!

What are the car requirements?

What are the car requirements?
There are at least 2 that I know of:
1. No fluid leaks of any sort. No oil, no coolant, no trans fluid.
2. No wheel covers.

I think 1. also implies that the car should not deposit any of its components around the track (this would be frowned upon) :( Therefore it will probably be inspected for structural integrity.

Then a few obvious things that may or may not be stated:

1. good brakes
2. reasonably good tires

Just to keep the topic warmed up.
On my black car, I have the heads off; new HGs and motor mounts going on this weekend.
New rear rotors and pads going on this weekend.
New front pads going on next week. Tranny shifts good. Tires are so-so but acceptable.
I may possibly get the Tokico springs and shocks on also. That would probably help a lot.

Looks like I'm gonna make it this time. :D

No restrictions on paddock crew. I wouldnt' bring babies or pets.

Passengers are only allowed on the parade low speed lap done during lunch time. Sometimes the instructors will take a passenger.

No age limit in pits area however lots of cars will be driving around so unattended kiddos is a no no.

Helmets are required. You may rent one at the track. See TWS website for helmet requirements if you are going to buy one.

I don't see you on the list. Should I put you down as Richard 90 SC?

What time does TWS open and when are we expected to be there? Are any people planning to meet up the evening before?

Other than tools and extra tires, any suggested paddock equipment?

You can drop your car off Friday night. I believe its a $15 fee to help cover security costs. I'll find out and let you know what time they open on Friday.

We always end up at the Fox and the Hound for beverages and chow. Not to mention the waitresses are easy on the eyes!

I would bring money for the cafeteria, sun screen if it gets hot/sunny, a chair to sit on and and a pry bar to undo the permanent smile you will have after running the track. :)

If you forget something most of us have tools to help out.

See you there!

VRRROOOMMM!!!!

The black neglected step-child car has been through extensive therapy/rehab now and is running pretty darn GOOD for what it was! It definitely runs different from my autos. Sounds better.. pulls better.. shifter feels great. Once I swap the K&N cone filter over and get the lowering springs on the rear, I'm ready to go. I'ts road worthy so I'll be driving it there. :cool:

Thanks to Murph for setting this up. I achieved my objective: drove the black car to the track, drove it hard for 2 days, drove it home... and drove it to work in the morning.. casualties:.. 1 set of front brake pads, and some loose ball joints (which were crap to begin with). I think the clutch (questionable 2 begine with) isn't so healthy now. ;)

In case anyone's curious, top speed on the back stretch was 110 with the stock engine with 150,000+ miles on it.. OK, K&N filter was the only mod. :D
