So death will be there around 7pm...? Just trying to time my trip so im not roomless for long.
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.
What pads did you get?
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!
Stoptech street performance pads.
They dust more than the Axxis pads
I had those pads on my old WRX. Prob getting a set for my '15 WRX when my stock pads are done
They do ok, but not as happy with them. I will say the price thru Amazon is good.
Where you going?
Rt 80 and the little Switzerland area look cool
I'm up for altering the itinerary Friday and Saturday if you and Bruce have some good roads to plan out. I don't wanna do the usual drives that we did in years past. Except Thursday, will be a dragon / skyway drive and anything in between.
I didn't know Nix, Bruce and Santiago were already heading down there. lol
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
We'll have to plan a friday drive in that area. We'll see about Saturday's drive.
But they already did it and Mike, Keith and I are doing it Wednesday..
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.
No, we're going back there...you can hang in the back if you like.
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.
