How much is it the full day?
Thinking about it. It's gonna be chilly!

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take the wall with you. Rollover is when you wished there was a wall.

Two other friends and I signed up. :) Two of us are driving in from Austin Saturday and crashing at a friend's place.

Any track notes? I've never driven there before.


Which car?
Evo X I suppose.

Track is very short, lot's of turns and one, maybe two stretches.

BTW in which group are you guys?

I think I will go the 20th for another CCW day, or maybe half a day.

Seth it has been a pleasure meeting you, I liked those laps with our S2000s

Blk96gt glad you liked your first time with the camaro. It sounds awesome btw!

Cool video. I saw the ones on your blog as well. I wish I could've been in that last session with you guys. Haha.

I'll be back the 20th!
