Thanks Wes. I'm super excited.

Laguna is 2hrs away now instead of 6, Buttonwillow is 1.5hrs (so an hour closer). Willow springs, chuckwalla are further away, but Sonoma raceway and thunderhill are also closer, though still a hike!

Cannot wait to get some time to install the brakes and setup some front brake cooling and get out there again.

Dave

 

 

after making my man cave, I would say to try to build for more space than you think you need!!!  Congrats again!

Thanks man. Super appreciate it. I'm underwater with house projects and an inability to properly balance work and life, but I am aiming for an Xmas present of getting out there again. I need a new set of rubber.. Probably 285 r888rs all around. Debating between that, or getting an n tune front lip to replace the damaged OEM one I have, and provide some more proper cooling I will need for the carbon brakes.

I did just give her an oil change, filter and a new battery though. So, baby steps.

Pics of the house as promised.

Yeah no fires. Got a generator in case pg&e does a Derp and shuts off our power anyway.

Thanks Tim!

Congrats Dave, going from 1100sq ft. to 3.7 acres!! Beautiful area with some great driving roads as well.  Played some golf at Cypress Ridge on my last return trip from LS, great course.

 

I believe Jon Hume is in that general area also.

 

Sold the GT-R and picked up a 991.1 GT3, so we can continue our on track battles one day :beer2:

Hey man!

Yeah it's really nice around here. Quite a chance from LA. I go back every week for a few days for work, always a bit shocking.

I'll reach out to Jon and see if he's local, that'd be excellent.

I've taken a bit of a break from track days with the saving for the house etc, but hope to get Bach out there once this winter. I need new tyres, and wanna level up and get out there on R888Rs, so now I need an extra 2 rear OEM BE wheels and a trailer setup. Doh.
