Matt... I would love to give you a ride... just keep low expectations so you won't be disappointed!

Nice steal Randy! I was thinking about picking it up... for 650, you really can't go wrong!

Well I showed up for a litle bit and got to ride with Eric and Nels. Kind of sad looking at the attendance. I didn't count the cars but I'd say there were less than 20 there. But of the ones that were there some nice ones thats for sure. Nice by my book.... nice RACE CARS. lol. Don't need a paint job to go fast right?
Rode along with Nels first. Nels is a good driver... keep it up man! I look forward to some good friendly competition with all this great potential I'm seeing. You too Eric. Practice makes perfect. I can't wait to get all our cars out again and play some hard ball. lol. Looks like we all need to tweak our suspension settings a bit but it's all fun right and thats what counts. I think I'm going to have to really shape up and sweep out all the cobb webs and learn how to drive again so I don't get beat by everyone the next time we all get to gether whenever that is. I'm so tired of broken cars. I'm sure randy can agree with this. Had to give him a hard time about being a pretty boy driver and all stuck up you know cause thats just the way he is.... NOT. lol but fun picking on each other. Sure was fun watching him race tht crx though.... I could swear he had it on two wheels a few times.
Well maybe they'll get the results up soon along with pics... but we are talking about the yelowstone scca so maybe in a couple weeks... lol. I'm such a jerk aren't I lol
Good job guys... kinda had the itch to break out my car. but I have so much work to do. I just need to get it done. focus matt

I tried out the Gti today. I wasn't impressed. Engine makes good power when its not flooding, but the handling is terrible. I have my work cut out for me if I want to make this thing work for SCCA. I finally gave up on the flooding and finished the day in one of our old reliable CRXs.

Too bad I started out in the GTI. My pax time would have been much better if they had let me change my car class to the CRX. That little thing runs pretty hard for a stock category car. It doesn't say much for the GTI that I outran it in the CRX. I will hopefully figure out the flooding problem this weekend. I am also going to pull the coilovers and start over with poly bushings, adjustable shocks and H&R race springs. Hopefully I can sell the ultralows to help fund this new setup. I will also fab up a lower stress bar like I have on my Scirocco. I will give the heavy pig another chance, then if it still feels bad, I will part it out to make the Scirocco haul ass.

I heard nels had a front row seat to the mustand flying into the pole! Glad the pole stopped the car and not Nels' brute strength!

Good job big nels on the fast time.... it sounds like I need to get the 240 out there so I can join the losers bracket!

Randy, I am pretty sure I know the original owner of your new green gti. Me and Nels went to Bozeman with a guy named Brandon that had that car for years and loved it to death. he then sold it to a younger kid around Billings after graduation (2006ish) and I don't believe he took great care of it. It's funny its slow because I have heard stories for years about how that was the greatest engineered machine in the world... yet I never witnessed it race.

lol... greatest engineered machine in the world. lol. you know I remeber that owner showing up at autocrosses.... and I would ask him if he was going to run and he'd make excuses. like oh.... my 5points are expired. Ya I remember him too.... and I never saw him race it either although he said the car really fast lol

They should talk to Metra again about racing either in the parking lot or the paved area inside the gates. I'd kill to race on a properly sized track.

Metra was always a money loosing endevour (sp?) for SCCA. So I assume that is what Matt is referring too.

It's just like the drag strip.... everyone says I would support it day and night, yada yada yada, but when it comes down to it, the attendance and financial support just doesn't justify it happening.

It does make me wonder if they advertised a metra event and put a higher price tag on it to make it worth while if it could ever happen again.

If I remember right, it was last year when I saw a flyer at the Car wash in the hieghts (right next to Pizza Hut, I forget the name)... it had the whole schedule. But I don't know if they do that every year.

IMO, maec can be there best advertising. I have sent emails to the yellowstoneSCCA email and never gotten a response. So atleast on here we have guys like Nels, Randy and Matt that are pretty good about making most events and can get info passed along.

One of you guys want to bug Jared about joining up... he would be a good resource to be on here.

I would say at this point Randy is our best bet to pass things along..... he's an actual SCCA member. lol

but ya.... with metra if you look at the cost for that event vs what comes in for money at that event then its a loosing event. they dont take in enough at that event to cover the costs for that event. But from a big picture view they would make a little bit on the other events..... enough to cover up for what they lost on metra.
plus metra wouldnt rent the lot to us once they redid it a couple years ago..... but at this point they might.... if they dont plan on using all that space for equiptment storage for the rebuild of the arena. lol

The Metra quit renting to us because we were putting black marks on all their parking lines, at least that was the last excuse they used. I think it might be good to hit them up again since they won't be doing nearly as much with it the rest of this year. I will bring that up tonight at the meeting. If anyone is interested there is a meeting tonight, specifics are on the website http://www.yellowstonescca.com/
