I sure hope it doesn't! 40% chance of showers thus far for the 26th. It poured like hell all day on Monday for only being a 30% chance of showers...

Son of a bitch! We're just gonna have to wait and see I guess.


On a side note, for those of you who didn't know, I was planning on having coilovers in time for the meet, but it looks as if that's not going to happen. So much for surprising everyone! My sleeve is now void of all tricks. :(

If we do end up rescheduling, I might be able to pull it off. Custom ordering stuff is FTL sometimes.

BC Racing BR Series w/ custom springs and revalve.

John - Tokicos are going on the gfs car, and the TEIN springs are up for sale for $160 shipped in my Spring Cleaning thread in the FS section. If you want them, I'll give them to you for $140 picked up at the next meet after this coming one ;)

Yeah I have a 15 gal compressor and a 1/2" gun at the house. I just bring any other air tools I need home from work with me that way I don't have to spend another $2000 to have double. But yeah, air is win.

So according to my weather channel app, it is indeed supposed to rain weds :(

Is it too late to reschedule you guys think? I just want to make sure it's worth everyone's time coming out. Rain would foil almost all our plans...

The weather may very well end up being fine. It was supposed to snow the whole time in Tahoe this weekend. I walked around in a T-Shirt almost the whole time. Supposed to be thunderstorms all day here. It got up to 70, and it's still clear and sunny, just like in Tahoe.

Alright it's still on, you guys convinced me! :thumbup:

For those of you who haven't heard, coilovers came in friday! Put them on that night, lowered it a bit, then hit the streets. These things are no joke - custom valved w/ 10Kg/mm front & 8K/mm rear springs. About 400% stiffer than stock. :shock: So I lowered it further last night, and threw a bit of preload into the springs to keep them from banging around when they break in. I plan on going a hair lower before the meet :twisted:

Damn Derek! I just upgraded to some KW / Mopar Stage 3 coils and I've contemplated an 8k front / 6k rear spring setup.
