Trying to put another Meet & Drive together... Meet some members, check out some more V's, and have some "spirited" Driving. I figured meeting at the the same location as last time... Easy Location, right off the Freeway, and HUGE LOT. The route is kinda up in the air as of right now. I have one in mind, but can switch it up depending on how many members show, and what kind of driving everyone wants to do. As of right now Im thinking the 23rd of August which is a Sat. If anyone wants to switch the date, just let me know. I have NO destination in Mind, except that we will end up on the Coast. I think its easiest to decide where to eat when the time comes... but Malibu Seafood worked out pretty well last time. Also Significant Others (GF, Wifes, Fiance's, etc.) are encouraged to come... Last time the Girls ALMOST had more Fun than the Boys :alchi:

When - Aug 23rd Arrive around 10:30 a.m. Leave around 11:30 a.m.
Where - Calabasas - 23355 3/4 Mulholland Dr, Woodland Hills, CA 91364
Driving - Canyons - Twisty (Passengers have been known to get Car Sick FYI)

Here's some Vid from the Last meet - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30fiRaQkzTo&feature=related (Thanks Heavy!)

And Some Pics

Still worried about that. I'm going to drop the wheels off tomorrow so I still have time to change my mind.

If its a 10 day turnaround, I have my fingers crossed that it'll be ready by the 23rd:suspense:

i'm still not sure yet! my vegas trip may be falling apart due to some unexpected work stuff for a few folks, so the likelihood of rolling with all you guys through the canyons is increasing!

And as Korizzle's is increasing, I'm going to have to bow out.:crying:

It's still a toss up if I'm going to have my car back, and plans got changed.

I was really looking forward to it it.:crybaby:

Hopefully Heavy brings his camera again and we get vids of more than just my car's a!@.

Bummer... Did you decide to go with the Black Chrome?? I wanted to see how your car sat on the H&R's too...

Next Time! :thumbsup:

Keep stirring that pot:lildevil:, I'm happy with the Corsa. Thats a good deal on that Zoomers though.

Went with Black Chrome, they had too many color options and I kept changing my mind.
Anxious to see what Black Chrome on a silver V with red calipers is going to look like.

I was so close to coming out this weekend, but the 4 hours out and 4 hours back to the LV proves a little much...
Now had the lady friend been in the passenger seat, everything would have been fine. But blah blah work blah

Wow!! That would be a Hell of a Drive, But I can make it worth while!! Since there is only half the amount of cars as last time, We can head up to some Twistier roads, and do MORE driving.
Just tell the Lady Friend "Wanna go to Malibu for the Day?" Gets em every time! She wont be alone either... At least my GF will be there, she never misses a Canyon Run :highfive:

car wouldn't start this morning (same thing happened 2 weeks ago - got a new battery and they removed my hard-wired ipod adapter)...it's at the dealership now, thanks to a jump from AAA. i made it very clear that i need it by the end of tomorrow at the latest, but they didn't appear so sure that i could get it that soon (i have it there for the battery, a seat issue, reprogramming the new nav they put in for a cts-v so i can get back comp mode, firmware update, and nonoperational alarm system). sooooo...i may be rolling through the canyons in my loaner srx! well, or just not rolling at all :mad: as i will be out in hollywood on friday night, so if i am sans my v, then a saturday morning, hung-over cruise wont be worth the trip!

i'll keep you guys posted!

You go to Silver Star?? If so, then they got Two V's there right now.. Prob the most they've ever had :histeric:

You should have it back by tommorow... There pretty quick about turn around. Most of those items just need to programed, and the if they need to order parts they should have by tommorow. Who's your service writer? Make sure if they jack up your car that they dont screw up the GC... Like they did with mine.

yeah i always take in to them...usually to jason. they've always been quick, but they appeared to be slammed. there were like 10 cars out front, so that's probably why they seemed a bit hesitant to say "no problem, you'll have it back in time for saturday!", haha. i'm going pay special attention to my gc's when i get it back after hearing about your recent woes.

keepin my fingers crossed!

Bumping this back to the top, let's get a date set-up. I'm down for end of this month or October (except the weekend of the 11th)

So you really wanna do a canyon run eh??! Well The First one we did the Turn out was 8 Cars... the 2nd one we Had 4. I think everyone needs to chime in on what dates their available, and the day that most people want will be it! I know a few have missed both days, and have wanted to go, so this is an attempt to get those guys out here!

Im available for Most of Sept/October as of right now (Except a few weekends in Oct)... Sundays the Exotics will sometimes be out at the Meet Spot, Saturday's are empty. The Last Sunday of the Month is like a Exotic Car show... lots of cool cars, but parking is scarce.

As for the Route, I have all sorts of Run's in my Bag, it just depends on what people want, how long, and how many cars show. If you've come on both of the last 2 Runs you know how Twisty it can get! :lildevil:

So I guess just chime in if your down, and will get a Date Set Up!

And of Course... GF, Wifes, Etc. Are ENCOURAGED to come along!!

LOL, you sound Like Justin (Korrizle) on the First one, His GF didnt wanna go either... but she ended up having fun, tell her to come for the Drive she'll really enjoy the views, scenery, etc.The first meet all the girls where very hesitant for the drive, but ended up having a blast!! My GF will be coming for sure, she loves driving the canyons.

If you wanna do some exploring around Calabasas, let me know I can give you a good quick tour (Mostly homes, Pretty Small Town) Lived here my whole life, only thing to do is Shop and everything is Really Really Expensive. Malibu is a bit more fun... the shops, restaurants, and beaches are really nice. We'll start in Calabasas, and drive the canyons to Malibu, maybe grab some food in Malibu (Malibu Seafood??) this way she can see it all!!

Haven't heard anything from JoeArlo... You IN?

What about Lunarx?? Ernie you IN??

Figure on Meeting between 10:30 and 11:00 a.m. and Leaving the Meet Spot by 11:30ish. Should End up at Malibu Seafood around 3ish depending on the Route/Delays. We can even do another run after we Eat, depending on how much driving you guys wanna get in!

What about LUNCH?? I was thinking Malibu Seafood again, Fun Spot, great Ocean Views, Good Food....

And the DRIVE... The First one was Fun and sorta Twisty, the 2nd one was Tight and REALLY twisty... We can do a combo of both, or a majority of one. Either way its Twisty just depends on HOW twisty. Also Length... Some members have stuff to do in the afternoon, so I would like to know if you will be cutting the drive short, or not coming along at all. Looking forward to meeting some more V owners!! :thumbsup:

Here it is from 1st page


Trying to put another Meet & Drive together... Meet some members, check out some more V's, and have some "spirited" Driving. I figured meeting at the the same location as last time... Easy Location, right off the Freeway, and HUGE LOT. The route is kinda up in the air as of right now. I have one in mind, but can switch it up depending on how many members show, and what kind of driving everyone wants to do. As of right now Im thinking the 23rd of August which is a Sat. If anyone wants to switch the date, just let me know. I have NO destination in Mind, except that we will end up on the Coast. I think its easiest to decide where to eat when the time comes... but Malibu Seafood worked out pretty well last time. Also Significant Others (GF, Wifes, Fiance's, etc.) are encouraged to come... Last time the Girls ALMOST had more Fun than the Boys :alchi:

Leave around 11:30 a.m.
Where - Calabasas - 23355 3/4 Mulholland Dr, Woodland Hills, CA 91364
Driving - Canyons - Twisty (Passengers have been known to get Car Sick FYI)

Here's some Vid from the Last meet - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30fiRaQkzTo&feature=related (Thanks Heavy!)

Nope... My installer didnt wanna go any lower than 1" in the Rear and .8" in the Front... But to be honest the Springs have settled more since they were first installed, and I think the Height is Perfect now. You dont wanna be rubbin on those twisites, I've already worn a bit of the inner fender well.

i was picking it up today...dropped it off on monday. my damn battery keeps dying on me - i just had a new one put in 3 weeks ago and it has died 3 times since. the local aaa guy knows me by name now thanks to my 8am jump-starts! silver star said that they didn't have a problem with it and all of their tests came back just fine...not even the tiniest draw of power. so who knows what the hell is wrong?!

Good to Hear... Figured you couldn't break the streak! :nono:

Yea Silver Star gave me the "Well we tried to fix it, and there is nothing else we can do" line, and I was out! So Far Casa seems to be much more Laid Back, and Cool, I even told the guy I had an aftermarket suspension on there, and to be careful when raising/lowering the car, and he said No Problem. So we'll see very shortly.

I'd be interested to get a ride once you have the new diff installed. I feel as though mine is getting progressively worse I'd rather have it replaced while I am still under warranty and before I put it up for sale . . .

Upgrading the mods.

Getting a carbon fiber shaft installed for the maggie (goes with the new spinner).

Is it a Mod I should consider before throwing on the SC Heavy?

heavymetals
09-22-08, 10:01 PM
I don't know Rob.

The only reason(s) why I did it is that it goes with the new spinner, is lighter then the steel shaft and I can't keep my hands off modding my car.

See what retirement does to ya?

I suppose it is better then dealing with some drama queen though......

With SOOO many V's I am not sure where to stop for Lunch... I Originally thought Malibu Seafood, Great Spot, on the Coast, Ocean Views, Great Food, Little to NO PARKING... There is street parking (where we parked the first time) on PCH, but with sooo many Cars, it would be interesting. But I still think its the best choice.

As for the Route, with so many people coming along, im gonna try to make it a little longer, but not as Rough/Twisty as the last few times.... Should be a good 3 Hours, including wait time for cars to catch up, and some stops for Photo Ops. I made a Map Last time and PM'ed it to Members who had requested it, but as of right now I have not Finalized the route... so I'll keep you guys posted!

How Many others are Bringing Passengers?? How many are just coming for the Meet and NO DRIVE?? Or might be Departing the Drive Early, with no Lunch? I would like to know so we dont loose anyone, or have any confusion during the drive.

Also I would encourage everyone to bring Video/Photo Equipment, the More angles/Perspectives the Better!! I know there was some talk of putting an Exhaust Montage together as well... so we should try and organize that ahead of time.

Really Looking forward to the Meet, will be great to see the Old Faces, and Meet the New!!

So a Friend/Mechanic will be joining us as well (Korrizle, and KonaSan know him well) He is a Member, but isnt very active on the Forum - He will be bringing his 08 Z06 - The Best Mechanic I've dealt with in a LONG time, and he has had 4 V's Heavily Modded, he knows his stuff... If anyone needs to get work done, this is your guy. He goes by CaddiYesso. You can Deal with him at the Meet, or PM me for his Info

Justin (Korizzle) brought up a good Point, that I was worried about as well... The route I have planned has a Left Turn onto PCH (heavy cross traffic) and then a U-Turn is needed to get to Malibu Seafood. This could cause an issue with Sooo many cars. The only way to avoid this is either to Reverse the Route, and change the Meet Location, Cut the Drive in Half, or change the Lunch Location. To be honest I think it shouldnt be too much of an issue, more of a Pain. Like I said before Malibu Seafood is also Very Short on Parking, so chances are we gonna have to Park on PCH and walk over to Malibu Seafood, but the Plus is OCEAN views, GREAT food, and Good Seating. Let me know if you have any objections, questions, or ideas.

I think we can manage, we will just notify everyone at the start that when we get to pch we might get split up a little. Last time as we made it across (pch) we lined up and waited for everyone to follow. That will work again, yes? The u turn might get hard. Everyone will see the restaurant by that time and just make it when they can???

BTW, I invited a friend who has a C5 Z06. Told him he could come try and keep up... Hope thats ok...

Sure, I dont see any reason why not. Tell him he might have to sit in the VERY BACK, so we dont get any gaps in the line of V's. Is it a Coupe or Sedan?? And by Modified Im assuming mostly Cosmetics, and an exhaust?? Does he have any suspension upgrades?? I think its gonna be pretty hard to loose him with soo many cars... To be honest the further back in the pack the slower it will be. So he should be able to keep up fine.

I've also let a few friends know, but none can keep up with the V, so there a little shy to come along. If anyone wants to invite anyone else along there more than welcome to, just try and let me know so I can get some idea of how many cars we have coming.

I'm actually going with an xB. I know that's crazy, but I plan to put a bunch of funds away for 1-2 years and then I can justify stepping up the game. Your rides are a great inspiration :stirpot: and I'll be looking at off-lease V2s in 2010.

Yea for sure... I think we can pull it off on Sunday... Maybe anyone with an Aftermarket exhaust who wants to show it off should show up a little early.

Yea saw that about the rain, should only be in the morning on Sat, and will hopefully dry up by Sunday... Keep your fingers Crossed.

I will be there at about 10:30, if we just line up a few different exhausts and do one after the other we should be able to get some good audio for comparisons, no?

I think by sunday the roads will be fine, they are saying 40 percent chance of drizzle on saturday...

I guess the NT01s wont be making an appearance though...:want::want:

So its drizzling a bit now... On and Off, but it seems to be burning off a bit. Tomorrow is looking good, should be dry enough to still have fun!

Question- Do any of you guys carry a jack and lug wrench? I have a full size spare but no jack/lug wrench. You know...... Just in case... :hide:

So I was changing my oil earlier and I never cared to notice that the big jugs of Mobil 1 were 5 quarts, not 4. I ended up filling up with 8 quarts, thinking that I was putting 6 quarts in. I had to put the car back up on the ramps and drain oil out. What a dumbass. :o

What did you guys end up pulling? .99 --- .97
MPG on the run - 8.5 (24.9 on the freeway to/from though!)
Round trip for the weekend - 771 miles

I'll come again for sure. A weekend spent in LA is fun anyway, but to top it off with meeting you guys and coasting through the canyon made it worth the weekend trip.

Glad you made it out... It was a blast, Cant believe Leno Showed up in his McLaren F1.

I pulled a 1.15 - .97 but I was in Front so I had a little more room. Look forward to seeing you on the next one!

BTW didnt see your GF, you leave her at the Hotel??

Yea I was def. Pushin it... That Z06 eating up my Rear View def had an effect. Got yelled at a few times by the GF threatening my life :rolleyes:

He showed, and came on part of the cruise, and then took off somewhere, dont know where exactly... But It seems like they want to save the Race for Cal Speedway... Hopefully Soon
