Hey, Zoomie, just to let you know..the SFRSCCA Autocross events are usually members only events so you'd have to have a membership before you can enter. Now, if it were the beginning of the year, it might be worth it, but with only two events to go? Basically, you're gonna be paying your membership dues and then the event fees. However, maybe they changed, but I'd go check with the event organizers first. Me, I'm waiting for more dirt. However, we could probably schedule some kinda Mod day thing early next year. I know most people will probably be busy during the holiday season, but maybe after New Years we could do a get together and help each other out with modifications to our cars.

You guys should try the road to Mt Hamilton and James Lick Observatory. It's a two lane windy road up and down the mountain with alot of sharp low speed curves. I get sick sometimes driving up the thing. Kinda like your own little mountain autocross.

Free autocross sounds good. but the reason we need the established events is:

1. they got the cool time clock thingy.
2. maybe a bit safer.
3. much larger turnout since it's a national club. (this one's the biggy)

Noooooo thank youuuuu.... i went there on july and a friend was driving my boyfriend's camry... i just had jack in the box... the guy was going pretty fast on the curves... i got sick... we stopped... i puked :( .

That road is a little too much for the RAV, i think. This friend was planning on getting a Subary Impreza STI (i think) and after driving to the Lick Observatory, he got it. He loved those curves and sharp U turns. No thank you :roll: :p

Ha, ha. That's the first place my friends dragged me off to when I was first learning how to drive. Really makes you think how to take the turns. Only took my Rav up there once..it was a bit wet and foggy so I couldn't really test out the Rav when I went up there. Ron and Brian would probably have a field day up their with the suspensions.

ONly drive at night, becuase no cars and all car racers drive up there at night.
My suspension and tires all play a great differnce.

Glad you guys liked it. Definitely need to get extra batteries and film next time so I can put in more footage from other parts of the meet. We need to bring our significant others so they can be our video/camera people. :wink: :wink:

Highway 9? That's the road that goes up to Castle Rock Mountains, isn't it? If it is, yeah, I've been there before years ago for camping and 10K runs. Never went back there after the one time I tried a half marathon and my body hit the wall. Ugh. I could barely step on the gas coming home. :shock: :shock:
