      Lime Creek Road these days is no good b/c they paved it with that crap that's no more than gravel with a layer of Tar over the top. Matthew and I went down Lime Creek Rd. a few months back and I said then that was my last trip down there.

      Chris makes a good point as well....supposed to get a good amount of rain this weekend but if its nice on Sunday morning, i'm down for a cruise.

      Also Chris....I called that guy again with the RS6 Reps from Radwerks and now he says "i'm not selling them" ....sorry brother...I told him I have a buyer right now but he has changed his mind for some reason which can only mean he's about to put another Audi into his stable. I should be cleaning up his car in the next few weeks so I'll see what I can do for ya. Also I have not forgotten about your sister's car. Call me this weekend so we can setup a date....I can probably do it after work during the week but weekends will be best. :thumb:

      ........and the vortex is not looking good these days....doesn't look like they have any intentions of changing up this forum software b/c they are broke status right now......we get we pay for which from that standpoint is pretty awesome for being free. :snore:

      What happened to my "bang head on wall" smiley? That's the perfect emmotioc...whatever...

      Oh well, I'll find other wheels to satisfy my wheel itch. [insert smiley kicking a can]

      On a side note: Free or not the new Vortex kinda blows. I would totally pay just to go back to the old format.

      The guy is flaky man so he could change his mind the next time I see him and if he does you know i'll be calling your phone :thumb:

      I wouldn't doubt that this forum becomes a "paying site" in the future.....which I would be glad to pay a yearly fee if they change this format up.

      If you don't care about your paint job then go for it....if you do care about your paint job then I would stay away from Lime Creek Rd. Its terrible now.

      i think i know the type of paving you're talking about. it grips really well, right? will it actually come loose and chip your paint? mine is just rattle canned, so i understand not wanting to go if you've got a mega ice cream paint job.

      Why would they do such a thing? How fresh is the pavement? I know this type, but after wear and tear it seems to smooth out. Moving the rocks to th outer edge of the road.
      No good =/

      The wheels pictured are Audi RS6 replica wheels previously made by Raderwerks. 19"x8.5/9.5 powder coated gloss black with a thin polished lip. The GTI is owned by 1552. this was an early stage of the car that thing gets better and better every few
      months. It's currently rocking their BAMFing fender flares...I love everything about this car. :bow:So my style.

      We should cruise out Hwy 150 West towards Wimberley, down the Devil's Backbone. It's a great drive with a lot less lose gravel issues. Next Sunday morning perhaps?

      Sunday Morning Drive.

      Sunday May 23rd 9am (earlier we go the less traffic)

      Let's meet at the Y in Oakhill. There is a big open parking lot (where a Albertsons once was) at the intersection of 290 and 71 in Oakhill, perfect place to meet. There is a Starbucks across the street for those that need coffee. We'll head out no later than 9:15am down 290 to 1826 over to 12 and out to 150 West. It's a beautiful drive with plenty of curves (reason they call it the devil's backbone). We can take some pics out in Wimberley before or after we grab a bite to eat. Anyone know of some good food in Wimberley?

      So...Who's down?

      1. Naylor
      2. Hergti
      3. Caleb?
      4. Jake?

      ^^ Sounds good

      I will do a little research about food spots in Wimberley. If some one knows a place that is even better.

      I'm home... Well, at work filling out my time card.

      You guys missed one of the best shows ever. Seriously.

      BTW, lime creek really isn't that bad. I went down it weekend before last, it's alot better now that gravel has been run off mostly.
