    HoustonMile "V" Gathering

    I've already PM'd a couple guys and they are in. I'll coordinate the effort on gathering, parking or what ever other ideas pop up etc...

    If you think you'll join the show of V's, Chime in here or PM me so I know to contact you for details. Please reply with whether you will be running or spectating. It will be great to see how many in the region show & connect.

    http://www.houstonmile.com/

    BTW, I have a GoPro & Handicam/tripod for the action. Could use maybe another GoPro to document both forward & rearview angles on the cars that run, so if you want to volunteer yours, let me know on that too!

    So far:

    Secret Weapon, Running
    V locity, Spectator for now?
    JayC'sV, Spectator

    More joining us via email too!

    Does anyone know of any off the shelf extiguisher mounts for the V2 coupe? My time is limited so custom building something is pretty much out of the question at this time.

    Re: HoustonMile "V" Gathering

    ^^^ Also, a mount that is "temp" in nature or one that does cause permanant holes or marks when removed, like a clip on or suction mount... Like the GoPro?

    I'll plan on attending and bring the Vagon but 'unsure about running (fire extinguisher an issue) - any ideas?

    For contact - bzabodyn AT fsblouise.com - cant PM yet either.

    I should have first round of mods completed/dyno tuned in time for its first good test.

    Re: HoustonMile "V" Gathering

    I think I have figured a way to mount an extinguisher in the rear passenger floor board using the front seat mounting bolts. I am going to try to take the V by the machine/fab shop next week and see what we can finalize. The requirements would be; seat must be able to travel to full aft position and extinguisher must be able to be access from driver seat by me with belt tight. I had no problem reaching any of the rear passenger floor last night. The passenger seat was just aft of its travel midpoint. bzabodyn would you be interested in this mount setup also?

    That is genius!! So simple I would have never looked in that direction. Thank You!! Now do you think it will get threw tech inspection?

    I had also thought about a bracket to clamp to the lap belt and pull the belt out lock it. The belt is designed to hold a 250lb person it should hold a 2.5lbext fine, but that would eliminate riders.

    Re: HoustonMile "V" Gathering

    Hello guys. I am not only new to this forum but just picked up my 2011 CTS-V last night. I am very interested in the Houston 1/2 mile and plan on asking a few more questions about the event tomorrow. V locity I sent you an email a few minutes ago simply because that is the fastest way to reach me.
    Also the gentleman on here that figured out the way to mount the fire extinguisher- I am interested in doing the same thing if you would not mind helping me with what is needed.
    Thanks guys and I hope to meet many of you soon.
