    This holiday break Im going to be heading down to Dromo1 for some indoor gokarting. LOTS of fun and prices are dirt cheap! Anyone want to join me? Im off of school now so pretty much any time works for me.

    Also, they have an open endurance race on December 30th. Its 3 drivers to a team and if anyone else is interested, let me know! $60 per driver for the endurance race including practice laps, and 30 minutes of racing per driver (its a 90 minute race).

    Here is the website if you want some more information

    So are you interested in the endurance race? If so, we need another guy! Sunny? Byron? Jay? Anybody else interested? Maybe we can go practice once before December 30th. Its been almost half a year since I was last there so I could use some refreshing :)

    I'm in too!!! I'm in OC all day tomorrow and Monday. I also have the FX Perfromance FDC event video I made. I tried posting it earlier but it took to long to upload. I'll try to zip it and see if that works.

    Theres some great shots of Steve in his 355 spyder, 150shot and Dom in his GT4.

    Dave is a complete mess & best left out of this event. :)

    He is the one who helped me install the carpet in my car. :)

    Jordan - We work during the week, so Sat or Sun is best for us.

    I promise that when I ship my Model T down from Canada, I will be attending Crystal Cove nearly every weekend as I hope to find a new home for her. I'll let you take her for a spin as we just put the new supercharger on. It should make for a heck of a kick in the pants!

    Sorry I can't make this one guys!

    OK guys, im up for this sunday! Hell Ill probably go next sunday too :)

    I checked the schedule on the website and its open racing all day. Im thinking sunday at 1pm. Ive got no plans though, so Im open to any time incase some of you guys cant make it then. We can do a few races. Ill probably only stick to 2 or 3 races myself...thats plenty.

    Of course you guys all know you will get your asses kicked?

    The challenge is on :) Let the smack talk begin!

    It says 1:30pm for Monday through Friday, not sure if that applies to Saturday and Sunday or not. Would Saturday be better for you? Again, I have no conflicts this weekend. It is kind of short notice, so if you guys want you can postpone this and go after Christmas sometime. I might still go this weekend just because Ill probably be bored...but Id love to go more than once!

    Ok, so lets do Saturday afternoon. As long as you guys going to Crystal Cove in the morning don't mind two things in one day. So who is in for sure?

    OK,
    So its the Cove in the morning and then Go Karts in the afternoon? I have a party to go to in LA at 6 that night so it sounds like I'l be closer anyways.
    There was some talk about making this a drive in the first part of January..... I assume you guy are driving your Fcars there right?

    OK here is the deal. This saturday they are closed for a private event until 2:30. So, lets meet at Dromo at 2pm and jump in for the 2:30 race. It will take a few minutes for everybody to arrive and sign in so that should leave us with enough time.

    How does that sound to everybody?

    Sounds good Jordan.

    Rick - My car is leaking oil. :( I just took it in - Will probably be a $500 - $1000 problem for me. I just had the major done last month also. :(

    I still plan on going to CC and Dromo though - But in my Jeep instead.

    Sounds great guys! 2pm at Dromo! Unless anybody wants to meet at my house and drive over together. We will talk more about it tomorrow morning at the Cove. If anyone has any questions just find me.

    So we have myself, Jerry, Rick, Dave, Jay, and possibly Dom?

    Anyone else?
