What, when did you guys meet at the Zoo.

We should go to a drag strip but I doubt that would work out, so I'm up for whatever.

I should be there, but I'm not sure yet. that might be the weekend I'm going up north.

I've got some endlinks you can have, They were new 7 months ago when I put them on the old protege, Wish I would have known about struts I through out some 2002 escort struts last week.

I'm gonna order some from energy suspension :blue:
Thanks for the offer though! Otherwise I found out what was wrong with the suspension, first it needed to break in a little bit. Sitting with no engine/tranny makes the front lift up a lot. Then I found out that a coil spring isn't on right. How that happened is beyond me. I should be pretty good to go by the first or second though. Just put 50 miles on it today, just minor problems.

arent the autocrosses full?

most get booked MONTHS before they happen nowdays.


I might go to the last one and the SCCA one at valeyfair. not sure if its worth 40 bucks in gas to get there ad another 30 for the event.

Yes they full but we can still meet up and pop the hoods or go for drive after the event.

I doubt it will take 40 buck in gas to get there.

So what day work for eveyone?

09-14-2005, 09:49 PM
What day did y'all want to meet?

I was thinking the 1st.

For the autox the 1st car is out a 10:00 and they usually wrap it up around 4:00 or so.

So can meet up after the cross, go get some food and pop your hood and bs for a wile.

What do you think?

thegreatelbobo
09-14-2005, 10:26 PM
I'll know which, if any day that I can meet up by Friday. Starting a new job this week :0
And, for anyone meeting up, I have a GTX bumper for sale avialble by pickup if I can go to the meet. I'll just throw it in the car.

http://www.oldweakandpathetic.com/merkerguitars/elbobo/bumper.rar Pics of the bumper. You need Winrar to extract it. Not excatly sure on how much I want for it though...

No crossing, now I have some odd brake problem. Thinks it's just a rotor though. I'll be plenty happy just watching. Still haven't gotten off of my ass and fixed the swaybar links though

eh, autocross doesnt get me going like it used to. rally pwns all. and I gotta save my money for next year, since we are doing a lotof them.


also, next year expect to see wray and i racing his rally car on old rally tires in some autocross. mike plans on getting banned from autocross :D

sideways through the whole course, knocking down most cones will probably do that :dunce:
