We'll have to meet up another time...
You better hope Sid (Blown 944), or Josh (Rogue_Ant) forget how to read....

Is Rogue's car together and working? I'll put cash down that mine is one of the strongest, most reliable 944 track cars out there.

..... There isn't an emoticon grin big enough to convey the one that is on my face right now.

Lol, my car has been working for quite some time... Blowing the NA motor was last Aug, IIRC.

My car is a street car, not track prepped. But I would be happy to run you at Bandimere

Road course is where it's at! I don't have any desire to layer Bandimere with transmission and axle parts!

I need to make it up to one of these to put some faces to names, but this one's not in the cards. Maybe next time around...

Where is a good road course around these parts? I'm gonna start tracking my car once it comes in.

PCA is pretty active at high plains raceway, pueblo and la junta. HPR is pretty awesome from what i hear.

Lol, I guess "strongest, most reliable" is relative then huh?

Touche! Although I suspect your axles/tranny won't last any longer than mine at the drag strip...

Look into PCA or NASA for local track events. There's HPR (out east past the airport), PPIR (just south of Colo Springs), PMP (in Pueblo) and La Junta.

HPR is a pretty cool track. I've never driven on it but I've gone to watch some of the events there.

HPR rocks! My only issue with it is that I haven't driven it enough, I still have too many Talking Heads "Well, how did I get here moments?", lol.

HPR = teh ****.

that's about what we did in Mike for club auto's diesel dodge pickup with baby seats in the back during the free day in december. shows you how times have changed.

i was running consistent 2:15/16s in the M3 in May when it was scorching hot out. before i had to sell it. the clutch had at least 95k miles on it maybe 185k on it so i was cautious on the shifts, otherwise I was having a lot of fun at HPR. wah wah.

car looks schweeet greg. glad it's back together. I am going into the office tomorrow. got a workload review in a few weeks, and trial i have to prep for that's next week so time is not on my side right now.
