    Wink ***** Famoso Raceway - Private Track Rental - 12/04/2010 *****

    Ladies and gentlemen,
    It is this time of year again.... I have reserved Famoso Raceway (1/4 mile drag strip) on November 20th for our exclusive use. We will have both lanes available to us as well as full use of the entire facility including the barbecue grills Click here to enlarge I am announcing the event earlier than usual this time to give enough time to people who are currently working on their car(s) or have on-going projects to wrap up their projects and bring their cars to the track for live testing and maybe even fine tuning.
    In the past, every time I organized one of these events I ended-up loosing $300 to $600 out of pocket, which was okay until last year.... last time I ended-up paying $2400 out of pocket mostly in last minute cancellations. Lesson learned, so this time we're doing it by the book Click here to enlarge
    PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
    - Price per car is $250 payable through PayPal. You must select "Personal" when transferring the money.... otherwise, the cost is $260 per car.
    - All payments must be submitted on or before November 14th.... Sorry NO EXCEPTIONS.
    - There will be NO PAYMENTS ACCEPTED AT THE TRACK for racing. The only payment collected at the track will be spectator fee. Sorry NO EXCEPTIONS.
    - Spectator fee is $10 per person and will be collected at the gates upon admission by track officials.
    - To cancel your spot and receive full refund, you must cancel (at least) 5 days before the event date. Otherwise, no refund will be issued.
    - Send payment to the following PayPal account:

    - With each payment, please include the following information:
    • Full name (as it appears on your driver's license)
    • Make/Model/Color of the car you will be using.
    • Telephone number & E-mail Address (in case of last minute updates)
    Now for the fun part....
    In November, Famoso usually sees very good DA: -200 ft to +600 ft (I know it's not as good as east coast tracks, but it is very decent for California). In a private rental, the track is usually well prepped and each of us will be able to get as many runs as we can/want with almost NO WAITING time at all. This would be a good opportunity to practice/perfect launches, shift times, try out different mods, fine tune each car, and most importantly hang out with a great group of car enthusiasts who share the same passion.
    SPECIAL BONUS
    There will be at least THREE TUNERS at the event. So whoever wants to fine tune their vehicle under real-world driving conditions, this will be your chance. Custom dyno tuning is great but you just can't beat custom track tuning especially on a good day :-D

    Hey Joseph.... how is it going man? Long time no see.... I hope all is well. How's your project with your car progressing? Any news?

    By the way, can you post a link of the event on your main page? Or maybe at the top of a more busy section. This will be a big event and I would like to give everybody a chance to see it.

    Thanks Click here to enlarge

    Car is progressing well, transmission will be installed soon and hopefully the motor can be finished in time for the event.

    I've just found the reason to seriously start making things happen with my car. I'll get raped left, right, and sideways with the cars that will show up (I've seen previous videos), but I bet I'm the only 335d there! Click here to enlarge

    It's fun regardless and you don't have to wait in line for hours to only get a couple runs. I will never go to a strip with the general public ever again, these spoil you.

    The strip I have down here cycles pretty quickly, but it's on a $#@!ty surface, so true #'s are hard to come by.

    One of em, yeah. There's a better one, apparently, that's properly prepped (it's another 1/8th) at Barona Speedway, so I might be checking that one out soon.

    Trust me, run 1/4 and stretch the legs. It is a lot more fun, addicting.

    Would be cool to go with a GT3 and see what it does.

    On the M3, were you running street tires?

    i did 2 runs on street tires and went nowhere fast....after that had on Nitto 555R(285/18) tires....they couldnt get traction in 1st...cause the stupid dct would launch the rpms up to like 4/5k when u floor the car...would be trying to grip but would spin then usually grab in 2nd...but this one run i just shifter into 2nd early and whap!!!! car just shot sideways heading straight for the left wall...i slammed the brakes, let off quicky counter steered...ended up facing the other wall...and repeat....was scary as hell...when i drove back everyone clapped!!!...old redneck said " I bet you almost $#@! yourself" ... I replied "no almost". wasnt expecting that scenario at all.

    add: a couple of my friends said they looked aways cause they thought my car was gone be done with...i was literally a foot away from the 1st wall
