SoCal.. Chuckwalla 11/22.. anyone interested?

Me and a few guys are heading to CW in a few weeks. There is still room at Speedventures. If it doesn't rain, we should have real good temps and laptimes.

I'm going, but not taking the Lotus. It only rains about 2 days per year, so we should be clear.

My Co-worker just bought a new Evo X and this is his first time too. He just told me he is scared but excited. So you guys will be in the same run group. Once you've gone once, you'll just have jitters and be even more excited.

Just make sure you get there before 7:30 for the drivers meeting and if your taking your lotus (assuming its an Elise or Exige), make sure your oil is topped off (not over filled) and keep your gas level above 1/2 tank at all times.

Also, check your toe links for torque and make sure they don't have excessive play. Changing the fluid in your brakes is a good also.

If anyone wants to meet up before, we are meeting at my buddies house near Chino Hills around 5am. Chuckwalla is about 2 1/2 hours from there.

We will have a bunch of chairs and canopies to hang out in, plus most tools.. Looks like the weather may be co-operating with us.. Fingers crossed.

Hey thanks! Lots of good info.

Actually got a call from speedventures today saying that there were only two people in the beginner group and that they were thinking about moving all beginners to Sunday. After chatting a bit about prior experience, (no track time but I used to race motocross and have done a fair amount of karting) we decided to bump up to the purple group. Gahhhh.

I'm planning on hitting the road at 4:30ish to be super sure I get there with plenty of time to spare - otherwise I'd be down to meet up with y'all, I'm in corona so chino hills is super close. I'll try to meet up with you guys there - what car(s) should I look for? See ya Saturday!
