Hey Jeff,
I'm temporarily rolling in a -Jetta- right now.... My car is at the body shop getting that sideswipe repaired. sux...

Looks like I won't be in town on the 25th. I'm heading back to GA for a week. My sis is having a baby.

I might get my car back this week, though. I was thinking that we ought to go out and showoff some rotary muscle on monty this weekend. I'd love to get a few 8's and 7's out there! SikRedRx-8 knows how to make a quick exit if we need to!

Oh, by the way gents. I'm having Tom at RotaryRX make-up a custom 3" exhaust for me. We are doing a unique setup with 3" pipe all the way from the turbo back. We're leaving the stock muffler in, though. I didn't want too much sound, but I think the 3" pipe will let the car breathe a lot better. And from the TurboXS results, even the NA guys can get 10-20 ponies from it. I'll keep you posted.

MD

Sounds cool... I'll plan to attend, unless something unexpected comes up.

As an aside... my father-in-law started hosting an Auto-X at our church a couple of years ago in the summers... it usually gets good attendance. The place is off Juan Tabo just north of Montgomery. We're going to be starting those up again pretty soon.

If anyone's interested in coming I can post details as I learn more... I think it's going to be on Saturday April 1st... dunno what time though. It's free of charge and just for fun. I've never seen any 8's (or 7's for that matter) show up but there are a pair of SCCA Miatas that came regularly last summer and made all the corvettes/350Z's look bad... hee hee.

Its Manny's Hamburger....and I'll be at the American Furniture Warehouse parking lot a little before 10am on the 25th. I'll bring along the computer and interface in case anyone wants to scan their 8.

As of this moment I have no idea if I will make it. Lowes delivered my wifes new stove last Sat. SMASHED all to hell. Now they are supposed to be bringing a new one tomorrow morning between 8 and 12. If it is like last weeks delivery they were here at 8:30, so if that is the case then we will be there, if not well then have a great time everyone.

Yes it is still on for March 25th. We plan to meet at Comanche and I-25 at 10am in the south facing parking lot of the American Furniture Warehouse. Don't confuse this place with the American Furniture Store at Menual and Carlisle....not the same place!!!

We will take sometime to meet everyone going and then drive south to San Antonio New Mexico which is south of Socorro. We will have lunch at Manny's Cafe....rated as having the 7th best hamburger in the US. From there drive back north to highway 60 to 331 and I-40. This highway - 60/331 - are fun roads to drive in the 8.

I will have my computer and interface in case anyone would like to scan their 8 for CEL codes or just to scan the computer....looking for what I don't know...

It is an opportunity to get together with other 8 and 7 owners to discuss their experiences and any mods they might have done to their car...

Join us! A good time is slways had by everyone.

Weather is going to be great and the roads on the way back give some twists, very low police activity and mountain views. It's good excuse to get out of the house or a sick day at work to enjoy your 8 or 7. SikRedRX-8 glad to hear you should be able to go.

Ace1810 (Steve) are you going to be able to make it?

Faffy (Csaba) are you going to be able to make from Los Alamos? I know it will be a really long trip for you.

Wish I could. I'm in GA until 4/2. Tom at RotaryRX has my baby while I'm gone. He's getting a 3" exhaust setup fab'd for me - along with a couple of other things. You 8 owners should go see Tom. He's got some plans for his biz that you guys should hear about! I can't wait to get back and hear (and hopefully feel) the results! If it helps me keep a couple more psi in the top end, I'll bet on 300 to the wheels. Anybody want to jon me for a dyno session the first week in April?

Well we had a great turn out for the Saturday drive. However the RX7s far out numbered us poor RX8s. Hopefully our fellow 8 owners won't let that happen to us again. Right!?

The drive was a bit longer then we might have wanted it to be. I guess I didn't realize the mileage everyone was getting, so it wasn't considered as it should have been for the drive. There aren't many good gas station along the route we took.

Sadly the best part of the road was blocked by slow drivers so we didn't get to have as much fun as we were hoping. But if you didn't know about the road, you do now and can easily get back to it on a better day.

Now....everyone check your oil!!!

The RX7 folks will be having a BBQ and possibly a track day, in a few months so watch here for more information. You don't want to miss a track day if you don't have too...

You are right Kewl! It was a great turn out!!! I hope that by the next time we can have another get together that we will have more 8's than 7"s. Here are some pictures that I took before the drive and some during it as well
