    If traffic from Atlanta isn't bad I should be there around or before 5pm. So you'll be good if you arrive by 7pm from MD.

    Had to do the back brakes on the Si. Stupid caliper bolt was frozen/stuck and it wore out one pad. Nothing a little heat and an impact wrench couldn't fix. Just sucks that I had to replace the pads when there was still at least half left on all the rest. Other issue is I couldn't get Axxis Ultimates again. Something about the owner changing etc. So we will see if these other pads can compare to the smoking Ultimates.

    If your there early just make a couple runs on the Dragon at your own pace to get a feel for the road or just to have fun!

    They do ok, but not as happy with them. I will say the price thru Amazon is good.

    And @PainIs4ThaWeak came and met us as well.

    solid 4 man crew at the moment. Exploring and checking out new roads. Some are good and some are crap.

    215/276 is worth doing.


    80 is awesome but really far from fontana.

    We ran into an RWB Porsche on Warwoman road earlier.

    215 looks better on the map. 276 looks great right around the Blue Ridge Pkwy

    They repaved the north half of 215 recently. The south half is still smooth and perfect. The north end is definitely rough but new black pavement.

    Well. It has begun. Ryan was faster today at autox, but had two spins and a dnf. I don't hit cones, so maybe I am driving too conservative. We got 8 runs today. I will edit a run to post.
