    No, I had a whole upgrade planned but a fitment issue put a stop to that.

    I'll tell the story once its resolved.

    Dave's right -- rules are rules! :)

    Maybe it's supposed to be the regular kind of secret weapon, and we find out on Saturday?

    Remember, we're on the same team! No oil slicks, spikes, or smoke screens! :)

    That's old technology, since I'm from silicon valley I went with a cloaking devise.

    If you feel a breeze passing you, that's me.

    Good thing my lap camera cycles between UV and IR! I'll spot the car's exhaust and reflected UV! :)

    Just so I have this right, if it appears that you're always behind me, that really means you're secretly way in front of me, only cloaked? ;)

    No, you're thinking Star Trek, its actually more like the MiB brain eraser, it doesn't make anything invisible, it just kind of photoshops it out of your perception.

    Its not entirely perfected, it can cause confusion in the people effected and minor memory loss, usually spelling.

    If you become disoriented and then try to swear but it comes out "@55&zj*", you just got passed.

    I'm wearing good safety gear, so it will probably be okay however it manifests. :)

    When are you heading down? We have a meeting place that's typical for those coming from the LA area, but I may end up leaving a bit later and meet everyone at the track.

    Dave, DBS, and anyone else coming -- are there plans to meet in advance and caravan?

    Meet at the same Denney's CA14 at Sand Canyon.
    Leave there at about 5:45 AM.
    That won't work for wash.
    We could do a second meet at the Chevron Station or McDonalds CA14 at Rosemond exit at about 6:30 AM.
    For wash, that is about 2-3 miles east of the track on the same street.

    I like the Chevron/McDonald's idea. My goal is more like 07:00 though (but I've made great time the last couple trips). I'll ping you when close...

    I'm driving down tomorrow so I can meet up anywhere within reason.

    I'm going to see if my cousin will let me use her couch or else I'll find a motel somewhere between El Monte and Willow Springs.

    El Monte is south of me but north of McRib and DBS.
    So you could meet up with us either way.

    It looks like I have a nice room in Lancaster so I'll be rested in the morning and have a wake-up call.

    We have
    3 Fiesta ST.
    1 Fiesta Titanium.
    2 Focus ST.

    Great.
    If you want, meet us at the Chevron Station at about 6:30 AM
    North on CA14 off at Rosemond, turn left and on your right.

    OK, I'll try to find that, see you tomorrow.

    I need to sleep.

    Great fun! Let's do it again, soon!

    Hey Dave, Wash, DBS, and Late Apex, what did you think?

    Dave: How did the pictures turn out? Any of my FiST harassing the Lotus cars or Boss 302? :)

    I talked to the Extreme Speed guys about Chuckwalla. I'll post an event, but that might need to be our next track day! I'm also game for Big Willow and Streets before that!

    I had so much fun I can hardly contain myself.
    And tor those that have seen me, that's a lot to contain.
    That track was awesome.

    The next SoW event won't be until Mother's Day weekend.
    I am down for that.

    Next Big Willow is Mar 29 & 30.
    I am not sure yet what day but I will be doing one of them.

    I have heard vary good things about Chuckwalla and I will go.
    However the next event is the same weekend I will be at the Octane Academe.

    McRib there are many great photos of your car.
    I have the CD.
    But they only shot the morning sessions, before you went totally nuts.
    The other photographer was there until much later and will post his stuff online later today.
