I have my room reserved & my wife is flying into Houston Thursday night to meet me. I'm honestly debating cancelling though. The thought of that drive again doesn't sound fun at all! I've driven to Texas 3 times in the last 6 months. Don't lie to me guys please. Is the Fest a really good time?

Fest is great if you know folks there. If not, it's what you make of it. Hands on time with the vendors is pretty awesome.

This is my third also, since our first one in Pheonix we have turned fest into our summer vacation since it's such a blast. The only reason we missed last year was I figured I better take the wife to Hawaii instead of Fest for our honeymoon.

Good. If we can get enough FI/Nitrous Sixers then we can maybe have a separate class.

That's what I was hoping for. I was gonna, but I don't stand a chance against you guys.


Maybe next year.

Love it. Mine is the single disc though, so yours will be much nicer.

That's good news, I've heard nothing but good things about them. Only bad thing is I will basically be testing at Camarofest with all the changes I'm doing right before.

Yeah, you don't want to be testing there if you can help it (Trackman, cough, cough). If Rhino79 is there, let him log it and see if you can improve you times with it locked in 4th & 5th. It looks like they've had some success doing that with the triple disks.

The fest is worth it no matter the drive... I've had an absolute blast at the last three... and wont miss any of them unless work gets in the way...

I will not be running against you though as I will not have my car there due to having sold the motor... I don't want to risk hurting anything on it....

We will probably be taking it to the shop that will finish the roll cage and leaving it while awaiting the new motor which probably wont be ready for several months... If the fab shop finishes with it, We'll load it up and take it to Corey's house or mine and park it....
