I doubt he could arrange that, you would have to ask him because he's leaving on the 14th or something.

I was going to bring this up since I knew you guys were talking about it a few weeks back, and I wanted to make sure we got the date set early so we can let other people know about it. When you finalize the date, let me know and I'll post to some other sites. Don't worry about the time, since that would be likely to change between now and Nov.<P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by Rated R:<BR><B>Sunday i'll be at WW3 at MIR...anyone interested in going?<P>96 850T....no more</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>What kind of event is that, and what happened to your 850?<P>

I'd say either the 10th or 11th would be the best bet. Let's spread the words...

WW3 is the probabaly the best event at MIR (Maryland International raceway). Its the biggest car show/race they have each year...it US vs Europe vs Japan. This will be my first time going but I've heard its alot of fun. As for the 850 long story but basically I got ran off the road and got a DUI. I mean how much worse can it get? Keep me posted on the meet and if anyone is interested in going to MIR on the 11th let me know<P><BR>Andy<P>81 244ti<BR>

Hey..that's a good idea. Instead of us doing our own meeting at the roof of some parking garage, why don't we all drive down there and have a GTG there.<P>By then, hopefully I will know few other people from different sites that would want to join us.

However, some people may not want to go to a drag strip, or may not want to drive that far. Just something to think about. Either way, I'll be there. I'm going to post to other sites now and just give the date as the 10 or 11th.<P>

I'd be interested in a gtg. I've been out of the loop for far to long (We recently bought a Dodge Durango and it's been nothing but problems, so it's been eating up all of my time!!). Keep me (board) updated on the time and place. Talk to you all later. <P>Scott

Well, I'm not sure if you guys are still game for another GTG. I just got a confirmation from Terrence that he'll be dropping by DC metro area next weekend as I mentioned before.<P>For those who want to do another GTG, let me know. We should try to arrange another spot for a GTG. Too bad that Martin Motorsports guy don't want business on Saturdays, or we can at least go check out that place together.<P>I'm almost ready for another drive in the country roads...as long as it's not too dangerous for the others......

By "next weekend", you still mean Nov. 10/11, right? Saturday afternoon would be good, but where do you want to meet? MD is fine with me if you have a place in mind.<P>I'll probably pass on the country road drive (I'll explain later).<P>

Too bad no local Volvo dealer has great parking like Martens or 355. You could go there and check out some of the new cars also.<P>There's a kinda cheesey auto accessories place down on East West Highway in Silver Spring (don't know name or address, but it's across from the Canada Dry building). There's also a guy up here in Gaithersburg who mods a lot of Japanese cars and has a Dynojet banner in his window.....don't know if he has one or not. He's just off of 355 though. Tiny place.

<A HREF="http://www.alteredatmosphere.com/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.alteredatmosphere.com/</A> <P>George, is that who you are talking about? They are actually pretty serious import tuner around this area. They do a lot high HP Japanese turbo cars and have a 4 wheel Dyno machine there. I've talked to them couple of times, the small guys didn't seem to care about my business, but one of the guy there (maybe w/ the name Mike or..) was pretty friendly and told me that he did some boost controller on both his mom's 850 turbo and a customer's V70R.<P>That place is supposed to be one of the place where the local BMW guys (www.dtmpower.net) hang out. Too bad they don't really open on Sats.<P>I'm not sure which shop you are talking about in Silver Spring...don't really hang out that area that often.<P>
