Nice. Fairly easy install? Where did you mount the controller?

Easy in the sense it's not hard to crimp connectors. Difficult in the sense that working in the tiny space under the dash on your back is NOT comfortable. Even more so because our clutch sensor isn't visible. Spent 25 minutes alone on cutting the loom around the clutch harness millimeter by millimeter so I could get enough harness to tap. Otherwise, it took about 1.5 hours total.

As for mounting, i put it on the little plastic piece to the left of the steering wheel above the vent. Fits perfectly.

Bad back so constant clutching makes it a no go. I love sticks though...

Looks like the nastiness might carry over into Saturday morning, gents. I'm still down to go since I drive in the rain anyway.

I thought I was the only one.

if it rains it'll be (almost)everyones daily's but still should be a good time.

The very first DFW meet was in the rain and there was a good showing of Z's though. We even had some from OKC.

Ran across this list guys.

https://www.thrillist.com/cars/the-b...cks-in-america

Hallett in OKC is supposed to be one of the best tracks in the country. FYI I did search for the smoothest tracks lol.

Tue-thursday is super cheap. Id take a day off

Just spoke with Scott Stevenson the track owner, 1600 for 5 cars 100 for each additional

gets us a day on track, just us. They run us through a safety meeting and we fill out a tech form in advance. $250 bucks for an instructor.
