When was it? I may have been going or coming from Capital Eurocars. That's about the only time I am on that side of town. We should all get together sometime. I went to Gainesville this past Friday night for street car drag night. There were two imports out of 100 cars- me and an acura. We should all go sometime.

i go to bainbridge and jax to autocross. at bainbridge the place they use is all beat up and full of gravel. you slide a lot, but it is still fun. if you are willing to drive a little farther the place in jax is awsome. it is on a huge air force runway that is pristine. there is not so much a pebble on it.

derek - what did you run at gainesville?

Best was a 14.1 @ 101.4 mph in my SMG cab.

not bad. C&D got 13.7/104 for a cab with the 6 speed, and those guys are do that **** all day every day, so your time is pretty good with the slushbox (even one as badass as the SMG). seems to me (not that i have ever driven one) that the true beauty of the SMG would be the perfect throttle blip downshifts as you dive into a corner, engine screaming, pedestrians diving for cover. hahahahaha (evil laugh)

I've driven by Schlotzky's before when there was a bunch on cars hanging out. I think it was on a Thursday night. I'll be the old guy in the group so I'm up for whatever you young folks want to do.

you guys ever been out to innovation park? paul dirac dr, beautiful curvy long road with no sides streets. it is the safest spot in town for some aggressive driving. it is my dream to get enough people that we could have someone stationed at each end as lookouts for other cars/law enforcement.

Hmm young guy's..:) I'm 39 Derek. Not sure how old anyone else here is. Where is Schlotzky's? Never heard of Innovation park. We could pick an afternoon/evening and meet at the Longhorn. You guy's could show me Tallahassee.

i'm 30. you guy are old :P

is seminole raceway a 1/4 mile track? speaking of race tracks, i met a guy a couple of weekends ago who is building a spec cart track out in monticello. he is a boxing promoter and is friends with juan-pablo montoya and his father. they designed the track for him. each corner on it modeled after a corner of a different f1 course. it is going to be sick. ****, now i have to buy a cart. he said the track should be done in a couple of months.

Don't know anything more about the raceway but it's got to mean something good. I'd love to not have to drive to Gville anytime we want to race.

Sure, leave it up to the married guy. How about Schlotzky's on Tennessee St. this Thursday night. The other racers/ricers get there around 9. We could get there sometime before 9 to get how ever many spaces in a row that we would need. Any ideas, input? How many folks do we have?
