Tomorrow is always better trust me...

June 30 (Sat) NCRC Thunderhill raceway... I will be going. Hope to see some of you there!

Looks like Sat June 30 is wide open for all run-groups! Yes, please keep her happy. Good instructors and S54 gods are always in demand.

Yes, tomorrow is always a better day!

Can't wait to see the videos.

From talking to you guys, it sounds like I will definitely go Euro or CSL headers and maybe xpipe.

With that in mind, are there a group of exhausts I should keep my eye on when the list comes out? I'm looking for deep tone that's not too aggressive and is without rasp or drone. I realize volume is an issue once I've gone headers/pipe.

I've put all my photos on in a Dropbox folder here: Bay Area Exhaust Fest 2012

I've got 10GB of free space on Dropbox, and I'm willing to host all the pictures/videos from Exhaust Fest in one location so that anyone on zpost can download it all.

I'll send an invite to everyone on the previous email thread to give you guys write access to that folder. If you don't get an invite from me, then just PM me your personal email address and I'll add you.

Right on, thanks Marin! I swear even though everyone is posting pictures of the same event, I love looking at each one of them! That was such a great time, like Finnegan said, just what the doctor ordered!

How about attending this event: http://www.zpost.com/forums/showthread.php?t=675698 I attended last time and had a blast even though there were only two of us Z4s amongst the 1 and 3 series folks. It would be nice to see a bigger group of Z4s to represent.

Good idea! I'm going (event organizer is a good friend of mine).

We're also signing up for Thunderhill with NCRC on June 30. (I'll see if I can talk M3Dragon into coming too.)

Darn...I was thinking about doing Laguna Seca track days end of June and early July with SpeedVentures and/or Trackmasters.

I love NCRC, but they don't have Laguna track days during the summer, which is like the only time I'll have

But we'll see.
