BTT for the weekend. The new location is A+, 1 huge parking lot and most of the old folks/ignorant kids from Cary no longer show up.

Come check it out, there's a good mix of cars.

Thanks, you missed last month. I did a good 10-75 pull on Lynn. Had a guy come up to me today talking about how awesome it sounded.

Your car looked sweet speeding up Lynn. They had a state trooper show up at 10:30 ish to direct traffic. The new group running this event seem to have there stuff together.

lol I have a set of marks at the intersection of Glenwood and Duraleigh. Far right lane headed towards the mall. You have to pretty much smoke em to leave a good set of marks.

Followed me all the way out for some reason, and I hung around in the lot until 11:30ish talking.

Isn't hooning one of the reasons these things always get shut down/evicted?

It doesn't sound like you were street-racing though, so I'm proud of you for that.

I think its mostly a location issue, you are never gonna get a group of gear heads together and not have some hooning. The problem comes when you have a impromptu bikini shoot in front of a children clothing store. Or a horrible locations like Brier Creek and Cary. As you see in my picture, they shut the hooning down this month.

It seems the problem has more to do with hooning than bikini shoots.

If you say so, cops==no hooning. Doesn't bother me one bit, I make the hour drive to Fayetteville and pay $20 to hoon for all afternoon.

^ I assume your question is why don't I live down there. I work in RTP, so living in a city with tracks, football teams, baseball teams etc is out of the question until I'm ready to change jobs and move again. Depending on what I'm doing I probably go to some track 1-2 times a month.

^^LOL looks like a good time was had by all. You and the lucky spectators.

How many miles do you get out of your rear tires? Ever make it to 10k?

Oh I read that as "from Fayetteville"...since we were talking about an event in Raleigh.

My current rears have a little over 10k (Rated for 40k) on them and they are DONE. Just ordered some replacements this morning. Hooning is expensive. Doesn't help that I've done a few track visits on them.

Do you get tires with a treadwear warranty? Saves a bunch of $.

Yea but they cut it in half for staggered setups so I don't bother with it. My fronts still look new. I actually picked up a set of pilot sports this morning from a friend with 65% tread for $200. Saved $400

^ Check out Discount Tire next time...they've always honor the full treadwear warranty, regardless of rotating or staggering. I go to the one at Six Forks/Wake forest but I'd imagine they're all the same.

How does that work for someone like me that does lots of burnouts etc. I'd think they would find someway to turn me down for it. My wear rate will slow down soon. About to pick up some more slicks.

Also I sometimes treat my tires with this stuff.

http://www.amazon.com/Mr-Gasket-6000G-Undetectable-Treatment/dp/B00CYDLJQU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1413827304&sr=8-1&keywords=hot+lap+tire+treatment

It'll make your hard street tire act like a drag radial. just wet em up 48 and 24 hours before you head out. Quick burnout and boom traction.

cars loving this weather
hear you about the dangers..hopefully the overly rich tune gives me a nice cushion, still pegging around 10.2 on my wideband during a WOT pull ..could definitely use more time playing with the fuel map.
at this point my clutch is so gone that i dont even think ill get to slide at tomorrows drift event..not going to drive it to cars and coffee bc i dont want to be tempted to do something stupid

I have a small group of pussies that show up every month, and I live 5 mins away. Today may be the day that someone hoons into a crash, COLD weather and summer tires ftw.

^^ "pussies" that drink coffee and like to talk about cars. I like seeing the old guys that are dropping $exas on their toys, makes me feel sane. The group at Raleigh grande is head and shoulders above the crowd that used to show up at the Cary event.

They missed number 0, little bastard kids putting their dirty fingers on freshly waxed black paint.

#2 makes me go home. Nothing annoys me more than watching them walk around and pick apart every car, while their POS is parked in the spectator lot.

Also wheres the car snobs on that list. I'm talking about the guys that ignore every "normal" car no matter how modded etc, and sprint across the lot as soon as a "exotic" pulls in.

Yea I should laugh at the ignorance but its just an annoying trait. They think buying a ultra expensive car makes you a car guy. Last time I was there I talked with a C7 owner, all he could tell me about his car was he had added JBL speakers. Couldn't even tell me which trim level it was.... I also talked to a Ferrari owner that could only brag about how awesome his 22" wheels were on a Ferrari.
