Yes, it's more expensive but you will get as many runs as you want with no lines, and you can easily get your inspection taken care of for the whole year.

List has been updated. Looks like we're going to have a decent crowd.

Speaking of the test day on the 7th:

Different strokes...you don't have to beat on the car all day. But if you're there to test and make changes and test some more it's a way better environment than a standard test and tune. My plan is to go there bone stock and figure out my launching and if I can hit 97mph trap speeds I'll try to get a 13.99. I figure it'll probably take 4-5 runs to satisfy my curiosity in those areas. Then I'll install a Cobb and make a few more runs to see how far into the 13s I can get. I can easily do all that in one day in that environment, where it would take me at least two normal crowded T&T sessions to get the same information.

Hmmm, the 7th is tempting. I really like the idea of getting more runs in w/o all the waiting.

I haven't seen a stock one break 14.0 yet, but with your mods I'd recommend a helmet. As soon as you make a decent takeoff I suspect you'll be in the 13s.

I'm coming from Broomfield. All of us usually meet at a gas station in Arvada. If you want to though, I can meet you in Broomfield and drive down to Arvada together.

I think two people have broken into the 13s stock

Cool, I will keep an eye on this space as the date gets closer.

Any suggestions on where to get a helmet? While I may not have my take off act together this time I hope to use it as practice to get better.

Thanks!

You can also rent a helmet there for $5 if you want. Just bring/get a head sock so you don't have to share head juice with other people....if that bothers you.

Oh, and count me in, though like Matt S. said above, that is last weekend for skiing, so may be a last minute thing. No new mods for me lately except the BMS oil catch can. Hell my car hasn't even hit 40k miles yet after 5+ years

I rented a helmet a few times, then just started running w/o one and they never said anything when I was running low 13's.

You need to start modding it. I bought my car way after you, and I'm more modded than you.

I also can meet up with you in Broomfield or Arvada too. There is a gas station on Wadsworth and I want to say 24th or so that has 100 octane, but I'd suggest filling up the night before as they don't open early, even on race day. It'll save you a buck or two over the 104 they sell at the track.

Scott, there is a gas station closer to Westminster in Arvada we go to that sells 100 octane. They also sell 104 octane according to Matt. We will all be meeting there to caravan to bandimere.

I will update the first post soon with the meeting time and date.

Google Maps doesn't show that address correctly - It shows as about a block west in the middle of the street/field. Bing maps shows it correctly if you've never been there and are looking to see the area. /just sayin.

Matt, did your engine get super hot when you had 104 octane?

The more I think about it, the more the 7th sounds like a good deal. I'm curious to see what the car puts down stock, what it puts down on map 1, what it puts down on map 5, and what it puts down with some race gas and map 7... Hmmm.
