Just had the coldest day of the season, it's 2009, and realized I have over 3 months to wait for the first event of the year.[bigcry]
Just venting and can't wait to start dodging cones again!

new tires huh? does that mean you'll finally be able to run your car this year?
I've definitely got the itch too, eibach pro springs and FFRP shocks should be arriving shortly. New brakes will also be next since the current ones are starting to get a little thin.

Seems like more snow fell in the last three weeks than we've got all winter[bigcry]! On the up side, paid auto-x membership dues and bought an event season pass today, and know where the first event of 2009 is but not when.Usually end of April or early May. GETTING CLOSE[cheers]
