Hi Dwayn, you drove down from Toronto right? How long was the trip?

Nice on the highway I bet, hopefully I'll be sporting the WRX's lighter and slower little half-brother this year, so your torks will make minced meat of me in the straights.

You do know that the real reason why I'm not attending this meet this year was because of you and your GTI?

the BRZ will need some better rubber if I really wanna drive it hard, sometimes I wish I still had my RX8, I'd probably be quicker through the dragon with that, the WRX is quick, but still kicks and screams when I turn the wheel. Grip is one thing, but I can still feel the car fighting the whole way and wanting to plow forward, that's what happens when the entire engine is hanging waaaay over the front axle c/l.

I guess this is as good a place as any to announce it.

I will officially host 8thcivic CTD VIII.

I'm basically going to mirror Chris's itenerary. Haven't decided if it will be one similar
To last year or two years ago.

I will have more details about lodging and the meal Tuesday night.

What's this plowing you are refering to? Hopefully I can get some 225 or 235s on the bimmer before then.

Oh yeah, it's that thing the Si does. I hope to make it this year. Hopefully I will be feeling better and will have some leave saved up.

The WRX does it oh so well, especially in the snow, that's why I'm eyeing up the BRZ, I just prefer to go back to a lightweight rwd car.

I won't be attending the 8th meet this year, but I will be at the dragon this year though.

I dont know if I will make the meet either. I definitely want to make a spring run, and have to make time for some DEs too.
