Some other members over on FJ are planning a g2g, thought I'd post it on here to see who else is interested. So far we've planned it to be on July 14th. Don't know an exact time but I'll find that out soon and post it up on here. It'll be at the William B. Umstead State Park in Raleigh. Raleigh was picked for somewhat central location. From what I've been told Umstead State Park has a lot of nice spots to take pics and a great spot to bring the family. If you have any questions post them on here or PM me and I'll get them answered as soon as I can. Hope to see a lot of people there!
why are there never track meets? all anybody wants to do is meet, eat, and take pictures. i tried for years to get a track meet put together and the closest thing i got was a handful of foci up on dragons tail late last year but ive never been able to get a single other focus to come out to a drag strip. not that im complaining about dragons tail because it was a freaking blast! i would just like to line up with some other foci at the local drag sometime! it doesnt matter that my car looks like crap at the drag strip so long as it goes like it has a rocket strapped to it!

Me and a few other guys that are local are actually planning to head up to Farmington. I'm sure once they get their cars ready to go we can head out there if you're interested. I've also got a few things to fix before I'd like to race it. I'd love to get a meet going at a drag strip.

I'd be willing to head up there, and if there is a drag day I wouldn't mind hitting that up also. I don't race or intend to be the fastest, but I wouldn't mind a few runs to get an idea of the Mk3 HYPER-RACE POWER![headbang]
That means low 16's, I'm afraid...[facepalm]

Probably after this meet we'll start planning a g2g at a drag strip at a central location. Only ones I know of are Piedmont and Farmington, could head down to the one in Charlotte that's 4 lanes wide. The name slips my mind though.

zmax is the 4 lane in charlotte. awesome track. they do the best prep of any track ive been to yet. dont forget about mooresville either. its only 1/8th mile but its a good track too

What are the numbers looking at for people attending in Raleigh? I wouldn't mind meeting some FF and FJ members, but I don't really want to drive up there if no one is there. I'm not looking for massive numbers, I just don't want to arrive at an empty lot...[:)]

I'd love to go, but I'm a ways out from Raleigh, and I've got work on the fourteenth. If I have enough advance notice, I can make sure to request time off for the next one, though.
