    Hey guys,
    Are there any groups that are driving down together for the Griot's Tech day on Saturday? I'm not in the loop (yet but thinking of joining soon) and hadn't seen anything up here yet. It would be great to get both clubs together for the drive to T-town.

    If you haven't seen the info yet here is a link

    Hmmm, between driving the F-cars and skiing...........

    If it sunny and lots of overnight snow, I think I will skip Griot and head to the slopes

    I'm in. Do you guys want to meet/leave from Southcenter Mall around 9:30AM?

    It shouldn't take more than 20-25 minutes to get to Griot's from there that time of day.

    I should have clearified - We'll head from Maple Valley to HY 18 to I-5 at the interchange south of Fed-way. If the timing matches we could hook up with you there or just head to Fife.

    Great turn out! I hope everyone left with something for their car. A nice BBQ lunch and a drive led by Gary Reed. Weather could be better but fun nonetheless.

    Yep... fun day! To bad the streets were so wet and it started raining on the drive back.

    Those TRX tires on the Boxer break loose way too easy in the rain when the right pedal goes down.

    Hope I didn't hold you guys up to much.

    I thought the pace was good given the wet conditions. Was the Boxer manageable in the wet?

    Willis,

    I haven't had much experience driving it very hard in the wet.

    It has so much torque that it easily breaks the rears loose if I give it a little too much throttle.

    I would rather play it safe....than sorry in the ditch.

    Didn't get any F-car pictures yesterday. I'm sure someone will have them posted here soon.
