  1. Oh wow, there's a speed limit and passing restrictions for hot lapping?
  2. That's pretty wild!! A couple of the good bumps are missing, but it puts me right on the track at Gimli.
  3. I went after work yesterday for a few races, they even talked me into trying out out the Pro Karts, totally different animals! I wasn't much faster than the Race carts, but it was my first time out. I'd be in for some racing. Dason
  4. I didn't realize you guys have done this before, that's awesome. I would rather you take it on then.
  5. I went to one last Fall with a Modern Mopar group, I can look into it if you want. I ran my new Veloster, it only had about 1000km on it! haha It was a bit disorganized because there was a scheduling issue or something, and it started off really rough. But they came through and smoothed it out by the end. Their dyno setup is an odd one, but it does the trick and the guys know what they're doing. Before I even go to them though, it would be best to have a guesstimate on how many cars might be interested.
  6. This event gets a TON of cars, and it fills up more every year. I used to go for Powercruise every year, but it just got a bit too open and out of control. Had a good scare with an inexperienced driver and I haven't been back. The first year I went there were 107 cars, now Powercruise is well over 1000. But man, what a great place, BIR is the best park I've been to so far. I'd love to get back there some day. Dason
  7. Awesome, thanks for the info. Is the entrance onto the ice still that boat launch on the northeast corner of the island, east of the windmill? I haven't been to the Portage races for over 20 years, but I'm looking forward to helping out this weekend. Dason
  8. How did I never notice that title for your build before?? 11.5 @ 127 mph is the time to beat at the strip on street tires, after driving there with the AC blasting... just to set the bar, you know. I'll work on getting you a proper TA lap time this summer. I'll have to pay more attention to this build now, you've got my attention. Looks like you're doing a killer job so far! Dason
  9. This is kind of how I feel too. I'm not going to spend much time crying about it, but I feel like my car really screws me for getting some competitive track time. I've only been doing TA for 2 seasons, and I still have yet to get a day it's not raining, but I was kind of hoping to get more competitive in 2019. It's 100% street car, but now I have to race against full blown built race cars on paper, which will guarantee me a spot right at the bottom of the pile. Maybe I'm taking it wrong. All I want to do is have some timed fun on the track in my summer toy. At least I'll have Gary's Camaro and Martin's Porsche to keep me company in the same boat.
  10. Oops. I missed that line in there about tires. Thanks!
  11. Thanks for all the hard work, it looks good. I never really understood the PAX thing anyway. The only concern I have is the tire width. I'm not sure which class I would end up in, as the car is bone stock, but will my tire size be an issue on the Viper? (295 front, 355 rear) Dason
  12. Hey all, Last weekend was a blast volunteering for the Vintage Weekend. I just want to say: it's pretty cool to be thanked so much, just for helping out a bit. Almost every post I see, between the forums and Facebook, has a thank you in it for all the volunteers. But I want to say thank you too: To all the big dogs running the show, and to all the seasoned volunteers who are always super helpful in teaching me what to do out there. It's pretty awesome to learn from these folks, they make it look so easy. I've only done it a few times so far, so I don't quite know everyone yet, but I'm comfortable out there, and I'm happy to be a part of the craziness. Dason.
  13. Tried to register for Time Attack this Sunday, but it's sold out?? There are 7 cars entered! And it doesn't look like there was an option for only Sunday entry anyway, unless I'm wrong. It looks like you have to pay for Saturday and then extra for Sunday? That sucks, I was getting excited. If anyone knows about this, or I'm reading it wrong, please let me know. I was looking forward to getting some TA laps in. Dason
