    Locost 7, RX-8 based build
  1. This maybe kind of a weird question but has anyone had any luck getting a track only car off of a recall list? I have a Mazda RX-8 that was used as a donor for Lotus 7 build. Since technically I still own the RX-8 Mazda has been spamming me with recall notices and sometimes phone calls to get the air bags replaced along with a fuel pump recall. I've called several times, explained the situation and they say by law they can't remove me. It's a giant waste of time, effort and money and would be great if I could get it to stop.
  2. I'm with cougar. It's a waste of time and money to go out there and be stuck behind some slow poke who refuses to move over. That has turned into every outing there now, It's maddening. They just did another groupon so I don't see the amount of slow folk going down anytime soon. If they could get a league night going once a week that was reasonably priced I'd think about going again.
  3. Is there any way to buy someones Friday or Saturday passes? I have no interest in the actual race but would like to see some cars on track minus the billion hour cue to get in and out of the track on race day.
  4. I use Apollo Machine off S. Lamar. Very nice shop and Scott the foreman is a really nice guy. https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&safe=off&ie=UTF-8&q=apollo+machine+austin,+tx&fb=1&gl=us&hq=apollo+machine&hnear=0x8644b599a0cc032f:0x5d9b464bd469d57a,Austin,+TX&cid=0,0,14832300881017704827&ei=YZIMUNWZMoq-2AWQ3bTqDw&ved=0CIUBEPwSMAE
  5. Can't do Mondays and Wednesdays. Taking evening classes at ACC this summer. My friend who wants to get in with a fast run group can't make Mondays either.
  6. I heard through a some what reliable source that tickets for the F1 race go on sale saturday and start at $170 for a three day pass.
  7. The 2012 Arbarth is sold out - http://www.autoblog.com/2012/06/04/2012-fiat-500-abarth-sold-out/
  8. I only used two of the four races from a groupon on Friday. They put the remaining two on my card/license no problem.
  9. Honestly I wish more cars would have cheap interiors. When did we all get so entitled as to having luxury car interiors in an econo box or built to a price point cars? I'd gladly sit in a sea of hard plastics with manual heater controls and no infotainment system to have a better performing part on the car.
  10. Saw a Scion last night here in Austin in Blue. The car looks much better in person. Not that it looked bad in photos, just better in the flesh. It's a lot smaller than I expected, again a good thing. The size is where a car like this should be IMO. I was thinking it was going to be Genesis sized. The nose styling looks good now but not sure how well it will age. The rest of the cars styling I think is going to look great even decades from now. It reminds me a lot of the original 240z which still looks incredible 40 years later. Now I need to drive one.
  11. There is a Groupon for K1 today- http://www.groupon.c...k1-speed-austin You can buy two for $88(no tax). It ends up costing $1.85 less per race than the $100 eight race deal with the $5 off coupon. $12.85 vs. $11. Any idea of a date for the next outing?
  12. I'm planning on being there. Anytime after 5:30 works for me. Also doing the class on Sunday morning. Anyone else doing that?
  13. Been awhile since I met up with you guys but I'm going to try and make it this week. I had a MazdaSpeed6 last time I was out. I'm driving a Cooper S these days.
  14. Just found out today that SoulSpeed has closed up. Can anyone recommend an alternative?
  15. Anything going on with this? I might have a new toy to show off after this weekend. My vehicle ADD has kicked in again.
