Well it was great to meet you Tweeter and Unsafe. Very awesome V's. Sadly I don't have any videos but hopefully Tweeter will upload videos of them racing around HPR.
Colorado/surrounding states we need more meets and cruises this summer! Lets try to organize some events!

It was great to meet you guys as well. I was pretty much running around like a chicken with its head cut off most of the day, but now that I know the drill, I won't be as distracted next time...and I'll actually get my car ready for the first session of the day...:eek:

I got a couple of cool pix, (thanks Bishop for a great one of my car on the track, and also thanks to his girlfriend for timing a few of my laps, you guys were awesome), and I will be editing the videos and seeing what I ended up with. I'll try and post them up by the end of the day.

We had three (3) Vs and four (4) different V owners show up throughout the day and it made the track day even more fun. V owners are the best, coolest, classiest group of people in the universe, and I encourage all you guys to set up meets often, they are super fun! :highfive:

It was good meeting you all. I'm glad we could get a few people out even on short notice like we did. The weekend did not start out well for me at all (power steering pump went out the 2nd lap of the first session of the day), but I drove back to WY, pulled the pump off my parts car, swapped them out and made it back down for Sunday. :D

Hopefully, we can keep getting some meetings together. The more track days the better. I would love to see a whole group of Vs out there on the track representing as there are too many BMWs and Audis around here.

I kind of forgot about taking pictures, so I only got a couple:

Thos are some seriously gold calipers. Good job! Glad there weren't any V casualties.

I got some pix (looks like a lot of the same ones, but a bit higher resolution, so I'll post them anyway).

Here is the link to my Photobucket page that has all the videos:

Brian,

The heavy Eibachs felt great, lessened the body roll, and the Carbotechs/stock blank rotors worked flawlessly. Thanks for hooking me up brother. Between those mods and the new clutch, she felt very fast on track.

What a boring day. It sucked...a lot.

:lies:

Seriously, it was great to meet you boys. Also awesome to watch you guys put in some track work. I felt wholly inadequate as I, Captain Bone Stock of the U.S.S. No Mods, drooled over some of the tasty upgrades you've done to your rides.

Next time I'll just have to man-up and mix it up out there as well.

It's all good, Bishop. I know how you feel, my V was stock once...a long time ago. Get them axles, a cat-back, and a short shifter (or modify yours) and you'll transcend to another level of V enjoyment. Then, and only then, should you go down the road of track day fun!

It was great meeting you guys, and thanks again for the multi-media support and lap timing. :D
