Are RX-7 owners welcome at the meet, or is this event reserved for RX-8 owners?

Also, what is the price for the Second Creek track time? Do we need helmets for the track? If so, are there rentals/loaners available?

Thanks. Looks like you're arranging a nice event here...

Hey Dave,

Come on over to our club website and sign up. we have more discussion there:

http://rockymountainrx8.com

But to answer your questions:
You are more than welcome to come. The more the merrier!

The jury is still out about Second Creek due to availability. It is usually about $60 to track your car. Yes you do need a helmet, but there might be people willing to let you borrow one.

We'll see ya over at the club site!

Only problem is, we're not sure what we're going to do for day two now, Second Creek isn't available to us after all. So we're looking into alternatives...

Second Creek is available on Saturday though, we could switch days around. ?

I have not had any luck in getting information on the track at Mead, CO yet.

So far, I've got at least 15 confirmed! In the event anyone has missed it, I sent two messages out from the info mailbox. I'm using that method to confirm exactly who is coming... So, if you didn't receive the email, please send a message to [email protected]
Thanks!

Omicron,

I don't know what the plan is for Saturday afternoon and Sunday (other than the track) or should I say 'where', but for those who might not think about this - since it is June - high places in Colorado can be darn cold even in June.

If, for example, you plan on a drive up Mr. Evans, bring a coat!

Just my two cents....and really looking forward to this weekend!!!!

Fred

A very good point!

The plan for Saturday afternoon is to take a group drive up into the mountains, so jackets might not be a bad idea. I know I'll have one in the car, for sure. Maybe I'll bring a couple of spares...

And maybe sunscreen for the left arm, especially if you don't have tint.

Nah, I like having a normal but bronze-addonis left arm to offset my corpse-pale, but Schwartzenegger-sized right arm I've got from shifting. :D

My list of what to bring for the track event:
- Helmet, SA95 or M95 rated or better
- find a motorcycle friend and borrow their helmet
- alternatively you can buy a helmet. Some clubs
require and "SA" rated helmet, which run $250 and up.
"M" rated helmets (motorcycle) are cheaper, but you
run the risk of not being allowed by some other club
in the future.
http://www.autosportwerks.com is a source you might
be able to find a helmet in stock locally in Broomfield, CO.
They have reasonable prices and very good equipment.

- Water, LOTS of water

- Sunscreen. LOTS of sunscreen

- Clothing - you must wear natural fibers (ie: cotton), and
long pants and long sleeves. Good, closed shoes. ie:
don't wear hiking boots nor open toed shoes (sandals).
Dropping a wrench on your toe sucks, or worse, having
your sandal slip while braking is VERY bad.
Piloti makes some cool shoes that look like regular sports
shoes but are made for driving. You can buy them at
http://www.autosportwerks.com which is located in Broomfield
or many other places online.


- Food (fast food is about a 15-20 min drive, so not a big deal)

- Chairs

- Gas, arrive with a full tank! You will use it

- Tire pressures set to at least 38psi (check this before
you get there)

- Oil, bring an extra quart

- Tools, bring some basic tools, jack, stands and a torque
wrench if you have one to check the lug nuts on the wheels,
tire pressure gauge, etc
(bring them and you won't have to use them!)

- Paper towels and cleaner (hands, window, etc)

- A friend to help out with whatever needs to be done

- Notepad and a pen

Since alot of fellow RX8 cars will be there, wouldn't be okay if those who are travelling from far away (and henceforth will be carrying luggage and other items) omit large heavy items like a jack and jack stands, and borrow them from a local owner if needed?

Just in case anyone else is scrambling to find a helmet like I have been, I'm having Autosport Werks overnight 2 Bell M2's tonight, one L one XL. You can have first shot at the one that doesn't fit me. If you PM me, I'll call them and set it up. I can even pick it up tommorow if you don't think you need to try it on. I'm expecting to get the XL, but wanted to be sure if I'm going to spend the money.

I'll have my large jack, pair of stands (only have 2), assorted tools (wrenches, etc.), pressure gauge, a few extra quarts of oil and whatever other tools I can think of that will fit... maybe even my little compressor if anyone thinks that would be useful. Think they'll have power up there if we drain the tank?

Plus, a cooler full of water, some food, basically extras of everything just in case anyone needs something.

I figure I should contribute something to this club since I'm primarily a consumer at this point. Huge learning curve. :D


And finally...
I'm thinking of hitting a place called The Rail close to the hotel tomorrow after work for a beer or two. If anyone is interested in joining me, send me a PM and we can swap identifying info, arrange a time, etc.
Map (Follow the directions in reverse.)

And... I'm done.

I will bring tools as well to share with out-of-towners.
Everyone please respect the tools and make the extra
effort to return to their owners.
