Awesome time, great track, weather turned out real good for a trip that started out in the snow. Thanks to Bill and all the sponsors!

vanzuuk- I like your autox style, rubber and tire smoke everywhere! I only ran for the fence once while manning the cones.

Ron i hated to see that happen to your car.

I wanted to thank Bill, our sponsors and all the great guys and gals that made this event amazing. I've never been to anything like that and i had an absolute blast even after my rear end shifted out of alignment!

Ron, that sucks about your car. We really enjoyed watching you car run the track on those laps Friday. We were 2 cars behind you and just watched the lines you were taking. I wish my car was the worst break down of the weekend. Your car is bad ass and I'm a Camaro guy so that is a mouthful for me lol

https://static1.pt-content.com/images/pt/2011/04/IMG_4574Small-1.jpg

I'm still mad my distributor decided to go on vacation. Oh well, s%#t happens, we had fun. And we got home. I'll see if I have any pics or vids worth posting.

BIG SHOUT OUT TO MARK FOR HELPING US OUT!!!!!!
He helped us out big time Friday when my ignition dumped. He helped with the car, drove our broken asses to advance auto to get a new one. This is after the spare module & coil I had in the car did not fix it. Argh.

Surprisingly Advance was only $7 more than jegs on this, and it was only $29 more than a basic reman. Huh.

The real kick in the teeth is the new billet MSD HEI on my shelf at home waiting for the new engine to be finished, next to the canton oil pan and QFT carb:

Thanks to Bill and the sponsors like Albert (Carbon Customs), Mike (AAW), BFG and whoever else helped out. Thanks, I'm hooked on this, I want in. And Melinda for helping so much.

I'm still mad I could only go Friday. At least my kids won all 4 games this weekend. :)

Awesome Event guys!!! it was great to finally meet everyone! I have a TON of pics from the track that my friend Joe snapped. They came out awesome! Since I was in group 2, most of his photos were of cars in groups 1/2 so if you see a photo you like, PM me your email and i'll send you a larger version... i'm trying to get the best photos posted, but if you see one of your car here, i probably have a dozen I can send you... just let me know...

Huge Thanks to Bill, Albert, Mike and everyone else for getting this event together!... And a special thanks to Doug (sicmonte) for having an extra coil in his trunk on the cruise and helping me swap it in time for the dinner!

I'm officialy hooked...already planning an LS swap... See you next year!

Enjoy the photos!

Hey guys it was great to meet everyone. Thanks for the great hospitality Bill, Albert and all the folks at American Autowire! Hey Bill next road trip take care of the brake job before you leave!!!!! I couldn't finish the event due to a bad transmission noise. We will see what comes of it but it was fun to find out the weak parts of my car including brakes, body roll and way too much power for my driving ability! Here are a bunch of pics!

Dude...I helped a friend in need and so did you!!! Long story short...for some reason my brake light switch broke and I had no brake lights for the first autocross. Sean's buddy ran out for a parts run in the morning and got me one. After my first autocross I came back to the pit and there was a new switch waiting for me. Put it in and all was well with the world.

I really appreciated that.

Dude, I hope somebody posts your drift session, it was awesome.

Does anybody have any picks of my car on the track, when its not on fire or hitting something. LOL

I got lots of the them Ron! Your 'Stang is one of my wife's favorite cars and she took almost as many pics of yours as she did mine! They'll be in my Flicker (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157626431740574) account in a couple days.

Hey buddy!

The brakes worked really well!! I bedded the pads on Friday right before the cruise...very last minute! I was impressed on how well the brakes performed on the track. I could tell that they were getting hot but they kept working. Turn one was a blind uphill right hand turn after a really long straight and every time I hit it I was seeing just how deep I could brake. Car and brakes did better than I thought! I will have alot more pics up on my build thread soon.

RTTH is on my mind. I really really really want to come down for that event. I have vacationed down there twice so far in Gatlinburg so I know how far it is away. I need to budget some money for the gas because I would trailer my car. I don't want to risk getting stranded. Right now I am saying yes I will be there. How could I say no? hehehe

Doug let me know what kinda figures you come up with for the trip. I would very much like to go. I have wanted to do RTTH's for awhile now. And after RTTS who would not want to do more of Bill's events. The hauler got 7.5mpg and that is without a tuneup after sitting for a few years. We could follow each other down.

This next RTTH event is going to be a tad different from all the past ones, should be awesome!!

Thanks to Bill, Melinda and the sponsors like Albert (Carbon Customs), Mike (AAW), BFG and whoever else helped out.
It was another great event by Bill. Thanks to all the people that attended. I wish I had more time to look at the cars and put faces to some of the names and rides.
Thanks to every one that helped me change the pinion seal. That is one thing about this group that is so awesome. Every one helps to get cars fixed and back on the track or home if need be. They keep good spirits even if things go wrong. I know quite a few of us were working on are cars, but I did not here one person complaining about it.
The track and event crew did a great job moving the schedule around to work with the weather. Luckily the rain missed up but good job staying on top of it.

And last but not least what a AWESOME job Vinny did driving his new ride!!!!!!! He was able to run very fast and hard in a car he does not have a lot of seat time in. He will be a great addition to the field of cars at OSCI. Jake - Nice job on the car. Fast as always.

And seriously I had some very minor work to do on my car saturday morning and Randy overheard and offered tools and assistance,hes either addicted to working on cars or a very nice guy. Probably both!

Someone asked what I was doing to my car and I said "drilling holes that someone will have to weld and fill someday"

he is both, and if you thought Saturday was nuts you should ask him about 24hrs of lemons... something like 3 or 4 motors used in one race! -Dan

Boy I am glad they didn't. I did some great landscaping work. I should have sent them a bill for evening out the rough terrain. This was late in the day and you can see I was not concentrating. That is why I just pulled in. Hope the ride was amusing.
