      HA! i think my wife would spend it on strippers before i would...and then she'd buy herself a 03/04 cobra.

      Anyway, USFOR-A S J8 beginning of october to december, currently RC-S CJ8. AKA budgeting and accounting. you wouldnt believe the amount of money ive processed by myself in the past 5 months. actually, maybe you would lol.

      EDIT: i just looked up the MSRP for the 04 and 08 R32's. i could buy all 10,000 US spec R32s and have PLENTY of change with that money ^^ what a collection THAT would be...

      back to topic, my attendence is now even more in the air then it was. no one here really knows me to care i guess, but it makes me

      I'll miss you skater, even if no one else does.

      As for the GoPro HD, I have one. I always bring it, I always tell myself I'll make video, I always make video, then I realize how insanely boring watching yourself drive is. So I end up ditching my footage.

      Unless you're a real whiz-banger at a movie software package, the amount of entertainment you can extract from watching yourself drive is fairly minimal, I fear. I always feel like if I could lower my IQ about 50 points, I'd enjoy the video more, but as it stands, being a well educated man of science and nature, I just kind of glaze over watching myself drive.

      Ya know how ya can't tickle yourself? It's sort of the same way watching yourself drive.

      I ran 2 last year on OrlandoR's car and mine. Mostly just driving footage.

      To do a really nice video. Well... it takes some preproduction since all I wanted to do was drive not hang out and watch others drive. Besides a lot of the cool areas don't really allow for one to really setup. But it's doable.

      Very well said... It's just never exciting enough for me to sit for hours and edit it all. It's cool to look back after some time, when the memory fade a bit.

      Hey there Andrew, would I be eligible for this? Want to get a feel for a MKV myself, my bro might be looking into one. On that note is 27K for a 20k mileage mkv R a little outrageous? Sure seems like it.

      27K for any stock MKV R is outrageous



      and if you drive one, you should check one with a ecu/dsg flash as well - more funz.

      Haha, yeah man. I'd be down.

      Also, that's way too much money.

      You can get ones with less miles for $20k if not better.

      Cool beans, sounds like a plan. Yea I thought so I'm no KBB but geez. Sucks cuz it's the brand new VW dealership in town, and they're already on their way to the "that guy" reputation... I figured because it's been sitting on their lot for quite some time, it's super clean, and they have prime real estate.

      As far as checking out flashed DSG's, I think WITW is a pretty good place to do a little research. Thanx for the input fella's..

      Woo hoo! You are the man Mark. It'll be a step down for you, but you can take a spin with the DSG and see what launch control is all about.

      Mooney crapped my Bed! Bastid got some Starspecs!!!!!!!!!! So, I ask the group. Potenza Re-11's or RT-615K's. I cannot run the same tires and Mooney I;ve run out 5 sets of RT-615's (mostly on the dragon. I have street tires (BFG G-force Sports) Only looking for real world opinions, I can bench race on my own

      I'm sensing some sorta challenge, and I is getting scared

      Yep great video with even better info. on why its better to exercise your skills and vehicle on track. I've tracked with most of those guys and the track there on in that video is Monticello one of the best private tracks in the N. East, good luck getting time on it though. I've had the chance a few times now and wound NEVER turn down the chance to get on it.

      And cough cough noobs, Chris? It really saddens me that you guys do not come out and track , excuses are easy and a dime a dozen guys .

      If your not gonna run Star Specs then RE-11's or the Conti Sport Contacts. Chris honestly your the only one I know who likes the 615's honestly. Everyone else who I know who has given the 615's a run in comparison to nearly everything else Star Specs, RE-11's & Conti Sport Contact's got ill thinking that they used to think that the 615's were good or even acceptable.
