  1. Best of luck to our fellow track junkie!
  2. My VSP agreement said I would not be eligible for unemployment, at least for 2020. Maybe I can for 2021 I hope.
  3. I feel your pain. Got a voluntary separation package from Concho this summer and thought it best to take it. Turns out now that ConocoPhillips is buying them it was the right decision. But i need income to afford this sport.
  4. I think a well set up BMW E36 M3 is hard to beat, the stock brakes are sufficient and the engine has good power. The E46 M3 is going to be quite a bit faster but more expensive. I ran PSS 2’s on the street and track, as well as dedicated RE71’s and NT01’s on track and they all worked great. I drove mine to and from the track for several years and it was a blast. I’m campaigning a Spec E46 now so a 330ci might be a good choice too. Call Greg Smith at GSR Motorsports and he can give you a good idea of the costs to upgrade with a roll bar, fixed seats and an estimate of running costs.
  5. Check with Greg Smith at GSR Motorsports in Ft Worth, I’m pretty sure he’s going.
  6. Should we add Texas Motor Speedway to the Texas Track Talk section since NASA is about to run an event there?
  7. I started participating in track events in an E36 M3 after getting to ride in one at Pueblo Motor Park with my instructor, which was a great experience, the car was awesome. SCR out of Colorado was there supporting 4 or 5 E36 race cars and their operation was impressive. I purchased a stock 1998 M3 with about 138K from a BMW CCA guy in New Mexico who preferred autocrossing his E30. After a year or so driving the stock M3 to NASA and The Drivers Edge events across Texas (TWS, MSRC, MSRH, and COTA) from my home in Midland the only big problem I had was needing to replace the detents in the trans
  8. OK, as long as the date codes aren't bad I'll take them. I'll be there Thursday night May 3 through Sunday May 5 until around 4 or 5, then head home for Midland.
  9. Are you attending NASA's Cinco de Cota in May? If so I could pick them up then.
  10. Registered and in a beautiful garage with GSR Motorsports.
  11. TWS always looked intimidating on the videos I found posted before I actually had the opportunity, but driving there was exhilarating, and pure joy.
