    Sorry man. Sounds like the eastern plains have been getting hit pretty good lately.

    I have been busting my ass for 3 days to get her ready.
    Last Wednesday the tranny was down. Wasn't enough shim....
    Monday I claybar'd and washed it. Started the paint correction.
    Tuesday I finished the paint correction....polished and glazed the paint. All the while my girlfriend polished and waxed her car.
    Today I got up at 6:30 and went out to Colorado Performance Unlimited and dropped the tranny yet again. Got home around 1PM (dicked around for a good 2 hours ).
    Washed again, glazed, threw on the ProStars, put the TTII's on my girlfriends '02 Camaro,
    About to go wax Slowass....finally will be ready.

    REALLY looking forward to this weekend.
    Colorado Track Day is Friday and the KBPI show is Sunday. Just hoping the weather holds out.

    Basically a group of us rent Bandimere for a day. No waiting....can take as many passes as you want.
    $82 I believe.

    Normally a great time. I am looking to iron out my tune and get deeper in the 11's.

    Thats awsome but $83 is quite a bit for me, but would rather go there then on the june 13 because of the fact of how many people are going to be there.
    Is shawn the owner of bandimere?

    No.

    Shawn is an original member of CSMA (colorado street machines--pretty sure they aren't around anymore) and they used to get Track Day going. I believe he also owned a silver WS.6 at one point.

    The $83 is VERY much worth it if you are trying to iron out some kinks in your set-up. As many passes as you can fit in.


    Long day today....

    On a side note, Since me you and ls1ws6 are entering the show do you guys think I should try to bring one of those lounge tents so we can post our lawn chairs, coolers, tools, etc? I think my parents have a nice one in the garage somewhere

    Yeah I know him then. I think he hates me though. I was that "punk kid" that bought his slp headers. then after some more research I found out they have low ground clearance, and well at the time my car was my dd (except in the winter) and when i go to school we got these big speed bumps. so I had to sell them. he got mad and wanted them back, and when he called they were sold that day. He made a thread on colorado lsx I think.

    Also I just got a chance to wash and wax my car really good then polish the TTII (since i got a little jealous of your car) and couple hours later it starts pouring down rain, and i think we are on tornado watch. this kinda blows.

    Man, this is bs. I doubt it's gonna happen. It's been rainin all day, and what sucks is my tuesday the weather is supposed to jump up to mid 80's!
    Every time it's one thing or another.

    I got some pics of your car luos, High quality pics. But none of them are of it in motion since you decided to run when I was looking at other cars

    If tomorrow happens I'll be sure to get some sick launch pics like yesterday
