Thanks for a great time! I think everyone I met or hung out with had a great time. Cept for maybe Ray who apparently had a Pube caught in his zipper ;)

Anyway I am looking forward to Georgia!

Between that, and asking if Greg had the shifts in the Vette on layaway, those had my stomach hurting from laughing.

Yes... George, Lesley, Greg, David, Sarah... thanks.

Most importantly though thanks to those that actually showed up. So many people talked after Chicago about how great Vegas will be and so few of those people actually showed up! It just goes to show that with this group you have to be careful about the "plan it and they will come" approach. I hope 2009 can be successful

They couldn't make it because it was too expensive. They'll def be there next year though. Or maybe we should have a convention in their backyard so it'll be convenient for them? :rolleyes:

It was nice meetin you Ric and shootin the shiet. You got a fast little B14 there with the VE and I just tried to stay in front of you but you were gaining ground each lap. Damn that slipping clutch!!! *shakes fist* hehe
Make sure you leave the B14 home when the next time they predict a snowstorm! haha

the VE ran fine but, evidently my b14 likes cool (nw type) weather:) i had some minor clutch slipping issues early on. the act hd pp has over 110k miles on it, after all. but that was remedied by a little short shifting (7k or so). after the 5th session the brakes were getting overheated (fluid fade i think). a mushy pedal. the next morning though it felt almost as good as before we started. the engine coolant temps had me worried all day also. even with the heater on full blast (hot) i saw temps of 220*-224*. this winter all the a/c junk comes out. and i'm thinking about a koyo.
it did manage some damn good mpg"s on the way back. Reno to Roseburg, Or.= 401 miles on 10.7gals. thats like 37.5 mpg over several mountain passes:)

it's got valvoline syn power fluid in it. it was fresh 6 months ago when i installed the goodridge brake lines. the brake fluid flush/upgrade will come this spring. and someone needs to invent rubber parts that won't melt under those conditions:(

I have a CRAPPY copper radiator that everyone told me wouldn't last. I can't say that I'm all that happy with it but a Nismo thermostat and water wetter help me forget about being cheap when I got the radiator and went the copper route. Oh, the radiator is about 7 years old now and seen SEVERAL track events. Problem with the nismo t-stat is that it is really hard to get the car to warm up if you'll be driving in temps below 20 or so
