You guys might want to catch up with the MR2Guru convoy coming out of Asheville. It might at least give you a place to take a break.

For those that take video I would suggest getting a decent car mount.

I use these:
http://stickypod.com/

Depending on the camera you use, you might be able to get away with the single suction pods which are cheaper. I like the sticky pod cause they hold a fair amount of weight against a large amount of force.

I have been the camera car since I started going to these meets, but it will be nice to have more perspectives.

I will have at least 2 cameras mounted up this year. Maybe 3, but I think Dustin should use his new car as a camera car this year. ;)

That is unless he fixes his alltrac.

Hey Josh, are you going to do the shirts? I saw you design over at Celicatech and I'm interested in one in 3X if you do them. Let me know.

Did they unlock the thread? I was on there last night before I posted here and it was locked. I'll check it when I get home tonight.

:edit-Sorry, I didn't catch that it was a new thread number. I'll check it tonight.

Come on man.... i've been wanting to see your car for years... :(

I'm still counting on being there, hanging on by my fingernails.

Josh, you can ride in my car assuming i make it there for your budget coilover impressions. Might not be entirely accurate as i weigh way less, have maybe 40% of the power, and about the same tire width, but in a stickier compound. :P

So whats the weight of the car? I tend to be scared of riding with other people. I don't have the nerves for it anymore since I no longer have a religion thus no place to go after I die in case you slip and kill us both. :P

Shooting for as close to 2400lbs as i can get by then. It may be less, i don't really know. I won't go any faster than i did last year, and last year the car was MAYBE half as capable as it will be this year. But yes... there is always that driver error aspect.

If you want you can take the car for a quick spin after the official meet, as in you driving, that's fine. Assuming nothing else comes up, i'll be around until Monday or Tuesday. This is, of course, also assuming that i haven't completely toasted my brakes with the weekend's festivities.

It'll probably be a similar ride to KoreanJoey's. But again, with slightly less weight, less refined, and less power. Just don't call me crazy for daily driving this. ;)

Mario can tell you what you're in for when he arrives into town. :D
