    i want to hit up all the bristol/waterbury autocrosses, and hopefully do a road race when the i have the turbo tuned to set and forget. B) pics of those parts soon, when i purchase my new manifold. the one i had doesnt line up with my head studs.

    Silly question! In for autocrossing, of course. Not committing to any club. Must try the Devens group in Ayers, MA. Waterbury is my favorite location. I don't know which car to run in... hmmmm. B)

    Have my Simpson helmet, have some lighter JDM rims coming in soon. w00t! An ITR LSD for the GS-R? So much more shopping to do. :lol:

    And I'm also planning to sign up for some driving classes in the spring. :)

    At some point, I'll make it down to Englishtown to watch you guys drift. Must master autocross racing first.

    Martine,

    What driving school are you thinking about? A Skip Barber thing, or something more geared to autocross?

    I'm going to try out the time trials this year. Probably at both Lime Rock and Pocono. I may also be doing a Cannon Ball run to Palm Springs to deliver some birds, but that's way OT! :lol:

    More geared towards autocross. There are some Evolution courses offered through the local BMW club. Then it would be fun to take that $225 driving course at Lime Rock that a Miata guy told me about last summer.

    I'll spare you the details, but I've been taking care of four parrots that need to be delivered to someone who lives in Palm Springs. I can fly them there, or have someone hand-carry them on a plane - or they can be driven by car. I'm currently exploring all options.

    I'm tempted to do a "non-stop" drive with a co-driver. Hell, if Martine can drive non-stop to Texas at the drop of a hat, I should be able to handle California! :lol: I drove out there by myself in March, but I only put in 10-12 hours/day.

    Cool. I've always wanted to do the Skip Barber school.

    I've got a very good friend who raced with the BMW club this year in his M3. He lives up your way. If/when you want, I can hook you up with him.

    You guys are really cracking me up today! The scary part of it all, is this thing has potential. However, I'd probably keep all of the parrots (only three will make the trip) in my car. They know me and will be freaked out enough as it is.

    Damn. Gettin' lots of good visuals. B)

    just got the brakes done on the mazda and switched the better tires to the front (less rear traction = easier to kick the ass out) :D
