  1. The only thing my dog drools for are sammiches and pizza.
  2. Interested? yes. Gonna bite? prolly not. For as often as I have time to get to the track, it would be less money for me to just pay the non-member test day fees I've been paying..
  3. Gotcha. well clutch disc is cheaper than the rest of the parts! There are several T101a boxes on racingjunk. just don't tell em it's a dog box? 😉
  4. do you have to run a stock box, or can you run a 4 spd dog box? look at Jerico, G Force, and the like?
  5. For a while, Harris Hill mentioned they would reciprocate, but I don't know how that worked in reality since I don't think MSRH did vice-versa. it would sure be nice if all the membership tracks would play nice, but then everyone would just buy the cheapest and use the closest...
  6. Thanks for the info on costing. That's not bad given what you get. don't know if I'm ready to stomach it tho because I'm already member at a kart track out in katy and spend most of my free time there with the kids. (hey.. another addiction for you.. you should pick up karting or mini bikes out there!) Regarding living areas, depending on where you work in town (if you even have to go to an office anymore, ha!), Pearland, Manvel, and Rosharon are decent places to look for houses and are 30-45 min from downtown Houston, Galleria, or Westchase. Prices are lower here than other
  7. So what's the quoted membership costs with this deal? curious what it looks like now. I live a whopping 10 min from the track, but only get there about 3x a year. 😕
  8. Logged on this morning to see a couple spam posts by this guy: https://www.trackjunkies.org/profile/3660-fryejacob/ Clicked on the ... to report/share the post and the window flashed up, then the window immediately went away before I could type anything and submit. Maybe it's my browser? Maybe it's me? maybe it's Maybelline? Thought I'd let ya know there's a glitch in the matrix somewhere.
  9. Don't know if I'd say you're in the deep end yet. (You don't have scales and alignment right at home. 😉 ) But I get the point. when you put something this adjustable on the car, it's best to get it set up correctly ONCE and then you know the car is going to handle correctly. otherwise, you put it all on and hope for the best with just a 4 wheel alignment. take your chances that it's "close enough" that the car handles OK and you may or may not know why it has a certain quirk afterwards.
  10. It wouldn't hurt. get the car set up well by a competent shop so it consistently turns the same right and left and is at proper ride height to handle. Might find you're a better driver than you thought you were. 😉
  11. Good point. I forgot about that part of it. Wish I could do the enduro stuff, but right now I'm just hoping my car and tires will last long enough to make it through the sprint races.
  12. Howdy all. just letting everyone know there's an SCCA Club race at MSRH this weekend. sprint races Sat & Sun, with a 4hr enduro on Monday. Come on out and say hi if you're out and about!
  13. *cough* bullshit *cough* Stats don't tell the true story. Wife taught in the school district where a large # of evacuees settled because of apartment availability. gang crime, robberies, rapes, etc skyrocketed in the area and her classroom turned into a circus. that whole area of town used to be uppity apartments. now it's used for gov't refugee housing because it's a pile of crime ridden shit, which drove the apartment values down. what was once a top-tier magnet school is now a bottom-of-the-barrel funding dump. And don't go outside after dark now.
  14. I heard through the FB that it's being/been redone (again). the pavement laid down in rattlesnake was too thin and didn't adhere correctly, so it's being dealt with. I remember similar concerns about Hallett when they repaved it about 7-8 yrs ago. Connie was very concerned about the side effects of a repave, and rightfully so. MSRH is going to be another beast. hard to get (and keep) it smooth when it's built on top of a swamp that goes completely under water several times a year.
