Now all I have to do is get the car, but I think I have that all figured out now.

Ironically, I am officially NOT in.

Wait list.

Far enough down that they returned my check.

Damn...I know how much you were looking forward to it. Going to any more autocrosses? I was little late in sending email for the one Sept 21...haven't heard back yet.

I find it distressing that it's hard to get track time even if you're willing to pay $350 for two days. I want to get back out there. I just *assumed* I'd get a slot.

Ah well.. Nothing I can do about it now.

That really blows :thumbdwn:

I assume that there are other organizations that hold DE's. Indepenednet car clubs, PCA, etc that you could go to. Or maybe even drive to a track further away if you are eager....

I am planning on sending my registration in tomorrow. $195 is a good deal :thumbup: Also, got an e-mail from the SCCA today, auto-x prices are $15 this weekend. I think I will go to Test N' Tune and the competition :thumbup:

There's a number of tracks within an easy day's drive and there are plenty of clubs and events. NCC is just so crowded with some 4,000 members.

Then what's the problem? Go with another group if the BMWCCA can't take you :dunno:

There will be plenty of BMWs at other events....

Yep, I think for about $5 per year we can get associate memberships in other BMWCCA clubs who use the same track. A few people do that just to make sure they get in more track days.

I know!!!

You know why, it is becuase you already have 2-days. People with 0-days and 1-day are both ahead of you.

Don't keep the rest of us in suspense...


So, TD, does that mean you're going to swing by Curry's? I'm hoping to find some instant gratification stuff there that I can spend some money on, though I don't know exactly what yet.

BTW, how are those Konis treating you?

I think that it's $7 actually :D

I know that some NCC people are going to Watkins Glen soon, but thats kind of far. VIR isn't too far away and Richmond isn't either. And then there's a track or two in PA too :D

btw, just heard from Roy...#120 for sept 21.

I looked over the Curry's post and thought the same thing myself. Basically, what small dollar item can I pick up. Last year I though that would be the UUC clutch arm bushings, but they are still not installed as that looks like a job for someone better than me.

But, yeah, I'll probably head over if I don't come off the waitlist (and I know I won't).

So far so good on the Konis. There do not ride any stiffer than stock, but (combined with the RSMs) the whole rear feels much tighter.

As you know, I was going to have the front Konis installed when I had my pre-track tech inspection done. Well, the front Konis are backordered at TireRack and there no track day to have a tech inspection for, so I might try them myself later this fall.

It starts 30 days before the event.

If you want me to get pics of you, try to get first half of heat 2.
