Hi Jon,
I actually gew up in Omaha (66th & Cuming, by Crossroads) and just moved out here to Des Moines after college. I only get to come back occasionally and as you can imagine it's usually filled with Family Time.
I would love to get out to a NE region event, but between going back for a business degree, martial arts, and a wife who actually likes to see me once in a while, I pretty much only have time for a local event or maybe 2 a month.
We're having an event here in Des Moines on the 10th, and there's likely to be several Foci around if you want to head out.

Here's the schedule, directions, and links for registration if you're interested.
If not this time, or at least in the mean time, I would pay close attention and try to get Jan (red EG Civic) to help you out at your local events. The guy is just way to friggin fast, and there will be plenty of transfer between the Civic and the SVTF as far as technique.
PM me if you're interested in coming out!
Don't waste another minute waiting on parts, or anything else. Just get out there and start racing! You will suck at first, and you will be slower than many other cars, but the only thing you will regret is not starting earlier...

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately like you this summer is nuts. I hope to get more time next year to Auto-X. If I get a chance to come over I will give you a shout first.
