I really liked that course at fedex... Any others with lines on the road so I can follow instead of losing myself in the cones

AJ, you're all signed up for Mazda?...this August 12-13 weekend. You're gonna have fun there. You have a choice of stick/auto, unchaperoned drives and encouragement to really push the car...oh and chalk lines on the roads. Oh and pretty much as many go's as time permits although only your first 2 runs count towards the time board.

The only thing that worried me about the CDC auto-x was no lines, just cones, easy to lose your direction in the heat of the moment....

There is no thread separation... you donny and I make each thread a conglomerate mess of DCness...



Yes lines are for noobs... what do you think I am....


I really did like that car course at fedex... had a good balance of acceleration/braking/cornering... I assume those PL's are closed on a regular basis

You can do PL Rallying, go as fast as you can while dodging cars parking and leaving the lot.

I'd just go to a regular shop, it'd probably work out to be a more convenient option...I wasn't aware that the dealership do VA inspections?

Yep..also I'd reckon the smaller shops would be more lenient towards slight illegalities, in your case your 35% tint all round

I guess I have to get my state inspection, too. I just realized I don't have an inspection sticker. Do they actually make an issue out of window tint?

AJ, BK and I bought our cars at Passport in MD, so technically out of state. But its really not a big deal. I had mine done by my house, 20 minutes max. On the tints issue, it wouldn't hurt to roll the windows down. Also wouldn't hurt to have a couple of bills handy in your pocket during inspection I wonder how long you can get away with no front plates. I see a lot of C6 corvettes, Z4s, Ferraris and Aston Martins with no front plates...

I have been stopped by some of the state's finest (no tickets though) and have never had a problem with my tints... I dont think I am worried about it...

I was going to wait until after the inspection, but I think Im just going to remove the front plate and bracket... my JMU plates almost look like PA plates anyway...

I see cars with VA plates driving around with like 15% tint on the front windows all the time, so I can't imagine it's that heavily enforced. I just don't want it to come up as an issue at a safety inspection.
