  1. You need to get the yellow-eyed monster back down here to play once things open up again.
  2. BNIB - Race Ramps RR-TR-5 Trailer Ramps with 4.3 Degree Approach Angle (Pack of 2). 67” x 14” x 5”. I thought I had a deal done on a used trailer and bought these to use with that. Then that deal fell through, so I said “screw it” and bought a Drop-N-Load trailer instead. Now I’m stuck with these, so my f’up is your gain. I paid $323 +tax, looking for $275 OBO. Will not ship, but can meet you somewhere around DFW to do the deal.
  3. Well, all that prep for nothing . . . PCA just called off the DE weekend and refunded the signups. 😷
  4. We'll see how it goes, I'll just have to be careful who I try to follow on the first go around
  5. Add in the fact that losing ~25% of my retirement funds over the last month means I probably won't be retiring this year, and I'm right there with ya!
  6. #1 = owner needs to fire that employee. It's a pure 100+ MPH joyride and no way can he claim it was needed to check their work. The guy is creating lots of liability for the shop owner and it'll bite him in the butt one of these days. #2 = free alignments for life or you post the video and name the shop for everyone else to see how they treat customer cars.
  7. Registration opens Friday morning at 8 AM - https://clubregistration.net/events/event-details.cfm?event_id=10423 It'll be my first time on the full course since they've reopened. Only got 2 weekends on the short course last Fall.

    Got it today. Nice doing business with you!
  9. Me (AIM2) Lap time: 2:28:36 Date: February 23, 2020 Car: 2001 BMW M Coupe Estimated weight with driver: 3100 pounds Estimated RWHP: ~290 Tires: late life NT01s Estimated temp: Low 50s, windy and cloudy Loosened up my suspension from Saturday's sessions and gained just a hair on time. Car felt a lot looser, but that's more what I'm used to and for me it makes rotating the car a lot easier. Unfortunately my tires totally gave up the ghost during the 3rd session and it felt like I lost almost all rear grip in the course of 3 laps. Fronts which were newer did fine, but rears just absolutely quit mid-session. First time I've seen NT01s do that, usually they're pretty even all the way to the cords. https://youtu.be/93KepXAIyYM Debbie (my wife) Lap time: 2:29:06 (AIM2) Date: February 22, 2020 Car: 2014 Cayman S Estimated weight with driver: 3300 pounds Estimated RWHP: ~300 Tires: late life NT01s Estimated temp: Low 50s and clear Deb got her best times on Saturday afternoon when the sun was out. Both of us loved the mixed Red/White sessions this weekend and hope the PCA will do that regularly in the future. I missed running with some of you folks who've moved on to instruct and it was nice to get to play with some of y'all again.
  10. Engine is all the way behind the front axle though, so a mid engine mega Miata
  11. I saw it in a garage at MSR and didn’t have a clue what it was. Once I got close enough to start drooling on it, found out it was a supercharged Shelby Series 1. Had to come home and google it to get the story, because I didn’t even know these things existed. With 600+hp and only 2700 pounds, I’d about give a nut for a chance to put a couple of laps on it. Sexiest damn car I’ve seen in a long time.
  12. Registration opened today for PCA Maverick Region HPDE Track Days Feb 22-23 (MSR 3.1). Car is ready and I'm in.
  13. Nice lap Sam! Total no drama lap (start of next lap OTOH . . .🤣 ). You’re starting to make it look a lot easier than it really is. I got a handful of high 1.23 laps yesterday, but never could get into the lower half. Good to see you and Joe powering thru.
