when i went to speedring tonight (didn't get to race by the way...) there was a SBM IS300 there. i think it had the older style antenna...thanks to Teg, i always look at this now...and the weird thing is, it had lexus of hawaii plate frames on it...since i'm from hawaii, i was interested in it...but since we couldn't race, we didn't stay long. wonder if that guy comes here...i'm guessing not, cause if so, he'd be signing up for our meet...or he's practicing for our meet...heh

anyways, we then went over to el torrito to eat...there was a solar yellow one in the parking lot there too...seems like a lot of them are popping up in the bay area now...

That was my buddy's IS300.
We raced the 6:30 heat.

He lurks here. He can explain the Hawaii thing himself.

Hahahaha....

All I had to tell them was I had a BMW and they bumped the Japanese car owners off the reservation list
Seriously, though, I made sure to confirm my reservations. They apparently keep some reservations on computer and some on paper, and sometimes the left hand doesn't know what the right is doing.

As for our runs, we did okay. My best time was 33.725 and my friend James (yes, the shorter guy) had a 33.9 something. I'm just a little too heavy and out-of-shape to move that kart around with much alacrity. I need all the horsepower my 330i can supply.

firestorm:
Are you going to do the IS300.NET Speedring event? (See other Speedring thread)

Hyper (or anyone else):
I have reservations next week and have extra spot or two available as I've decided to do single instead of double heats. If you're interested in doing Speedring at any of these times, just let me know:

Tues, Jan. 23 - 6:30pm
Thurs, Jan. 25 - 8:30pm and 9:00pm

Hyper,
Just let us know by Tuesday at 2:00 if you would like to take the 6:30 slot. I'm allowed to cancel up to a few hours before the heat. Please send me a note one way or the other. My email is [email protected].

And you're welcome to just kick it with us at Speedring. But...be warned...I'm liable to bore you with videos from the track.

HyperMKIV, I grew up in the McCully and Makiki area. I won't be able to make the Speedring times this week. Maybe next week.
