Title: Track Day, Wed June 30, 9am, SCR
Post by: 03Indigo on June 19, 2004, 06:53:45 AM
gonna be there with the MINI guys, drivin, testin, and smilin.  I have also invited some of the folks from work since they are getting more and more curious about what we do at the track.

So, if you are free that morning, want to hang and drive for a few hours, and possibly give some nurses a ride of their life, hehehe, then come on out to Second Creek Race way for the morning session.

cheers

Something wrong with it, or do you just want to make it faster first?

Yes and No. It does need to be faster but my main concerns are the tires, breaks and suspension. they are all not track worthy at this point in my oppinion.

And I have the sneeking suspision that im going to need a clutch here soon. Every once and a while when I get on it pretty good in first it will slip, and some times when im just daily driveing it will smell very strongly of burnt clutch out of no where.  Its going to the VW dealer to be looked at on wed so we will see what they say about it.

All in good time. :D

What the dealer is going to say to you is this:

"Mr blueGolfTurbo... Ah, yes. Sir, would you please bend over and grab your ankles. Oh, also, I'll take your wallet first. Yes, thank you..."  :cry:  8O  8O  :blush:

Good luck with that!

$60 for the morning session, and there may be a helmet we can let you use, or you can share mine when I am not on the track...I spend more time off the track than on, hehehe

hey alex, if you see this and it isn't too late, you could stop by my place to pick up a helmet to borrow.  

Let me know if you are interested and I can get directions to you and call my wife to let her know you'll stop by to get it.

track day was great, loved the new seat and the harnesses...they rocked.  It was a very quiet day at the track, we were basically the only ones there, like a private session, which was nice.  It was cool and conditions were nice.

we misses ya!!!

cheers

We had a great time.  I ruined another set of tires, however.  That was probably my own fault, for taking so many laps at a time.  Brakes.... what brakes?  Who needs brakes?  My brakes are getting replaced today at Champagne Motor Sports.  Those guys know their stuff....

Great times, everyone who didn't come, thanks for leaving us a wide open private track!
