Default TCG test and tune day?

How many people out here would be interested in hitting up a test and tune day @ GLD some time in July? This little cruise I did today with a handful of folks was a good time. We drove within a few miles of GLD and it reminded me how much I enjoy drag racing when stuff doesn't break...

Post up if you're interested. Will work out details with those that reply.

I haven't been down the track in a long time (at least a year it seems) and need to get back at it once to see what the ole Vette can do in stock(ish) (pun intended @Shibby50 ) form.

Will tag some folks tomorrow to draw some attention if it doesn't take off organic like

I actually have a day set on 7/20. I thought I posted it up already but I could have forgotten to do so.

I'm in for other days as well. Trying to get my car lined out right now so I'll be going a lot.

Thanks for posting up. Looking forward to a great racing season.

I'm the exact opposite. Need it to be a busy well prepped night and preferably not a week night since I work 4am's and it's a 2 hour drive each way.

@ekrunch - as long as folks are available on the 20th, I don't see why that wouldn't work. Are you going with another group, or just a couple friends?

I haven't run at the track in years and would love to get a few runs in with my car. I feel it's finally in a position where I'm not planning any more go fast mods, the tune is good and safe, and I'd love to see what it would run how I daily it.

Just a few friends. Several of them are TCG or Chicagoland Mustang, should be a pretty decent mix of cars. @JK564 and I have been planning this for a week or two. Hopefully we gave everyone enough time to get out of work.

I'd be in to meet up an hang out, take pics and vids. I don't have any sticky tires for the car right now so probably wouldn't run.

Please do! I'm sure we'd all love to have some good pictures from the track. I have an SLR camera and digital video camera if you need some equipment.

I'm thinking of doing another late July pass on the weekend as well, so I'll be sure to post it up. Weekends are tricky because of the schedules at the track but I'm sure we can find something.
