Aim for 7:00, Mike. Things always take longer than they should, plus you might have to wait in line for something or find a sudden need to destroy a public restroom. I always seem to wind up running around for no reason--the concept of "Tech" seems to be different every time, so it really depends on who's in charge on a given day. Don't forget car numbering, removing junk from your trunk/door pockets/floors, fuel topping, mustache waxing, ninja mask darning, etc. There is a lot to be said for actually driving your car to the track, rather than pulling it . . .

So thoughts on which tire to run with rain in mind?

My track setup is the nitto nt01ís with track wheels

Or my street setup ps4s on factory wheels?

I guess no PRís going to be had that Friday with rain.. and I assume the ps4ís will do better in the wet

If you're gonna run in the rain I would definitely choose the street tires.

NT01's are not gonna do you any favors pushing it in the rain... I just don't see the point. They are a decent street R comp though. I daily drove NT01's for about a year / 12000 miles in a P car and they were tolerable in the rain, but that's not the track.

If the rain system moves out of Friday I hope to sign up.

So if you go, will you be wearing your red pants or your green pants?

It's starting to look like I'll be driving/towing down the morning of, because holiday BS and weirdness are beginning already (not the biggest fan of holidays). It's 234 miles, via I-5. If it rains while I'm at the track, I'll take it as a reason for a much-needed nap. Man up. Pick a color. Groove your slicks or something.

In this case i'm color blind. I'm either doing yellow or red. red will depend on how many cars on the track. Good car, Great track, s0-s0 driver+wet= tread(wear) lightly....

I'm leaving at 5:30 ish.

Nate? wat say u? or text me...

IF you guys don't eat too much, you'll save .0001 off of your track times at a non-timed event....
