Er, yes it does.. Read it again? Also since this is a club event, it would be considerate to email Hagen to let him know you are in / if you're bringing a guest.. It helps when organizing the lunch, etc.

Yea, guessing I missed it. Weather is giving me a headache. I'll have to find out what exactly is going on before I email him confirming I'm going, that way he doesn't get his number all messed up.

Thanks for that man.

Is anyone else going? My girlfriend was asking me where I'm taking her because I was wondering where my bearings were ahaha... So it looks like I might be in, but I'd like to go with someone else who knows the route and have a little cruise to the meeting spot.

Everlast you down for meeting up at M&M Timmies before it's time to meet up there?

Rob ran a 13.6 on 15psi with traction issues 50+ runs today... I was purity happy with the tune considering it was not done on a dyno ... We figure with slicks would be a low 13 sec car ... first and second gear was just spinning like crazy.... Not bad for a e36 318is turbo fully dressed interior

That run with my car was an embarassment against the SRT 8 Jeep. The 6 speed I put in is done (syncro) that is why I keep missing the gears, but by the end of the day I hit all the gears a couple times and the car was in the mid 12s @114 MPH.

So are you guys as anxious as i am to get back behind a wheel at the track?

Some of you might be aware, but others may not, that MCO organizes a bunch of winter events. They're all held at an ice track at Capital City Speedway.

There's a winter snowcross series, which is basically the same as the summer snowcross, other than the fact that if you go off track, you're in a snowbank. You see a lot of street-driven cars out there, but also many "beaters" that can be stored at the track during the race season, so they don't need to be plated/insured. Personnally, I'm driving a 1993 ford festiva with all of 63HP, it's a hilarious good time.

The other series is a wheel-to-wheel ice race series. This has about 15 cars on the track at the same time and they are split into 3 classes (FWD, RWD, AWD). For this, no cars with street insurance are allowed. MCO is hosting 3 events, and they're 1.5 hour enduro-style races with a recommended 3 drivers (for teams with less than 3, they will incur lap penalties). For this, i'm racing a subaru legacy wagon.

For more information on the Ice-race, check out:

for registration for event 1:

and finally, if you want to have an idea what it's all about, check out the pics on our website:

ice-race (ok this was more of a slush race): http://www.eurotrashmotorsports.com/...=15&gallery=27

hope to see some of you out there!

If anyone has questions, feel free to ask me!
