shockerracing.com I am excited to be surprising wifey and taking her on a mini repeat of the TCG Tour 2017 this weekend! Shhhh, don't tell her but we are going to take the Jeep and head up to Silver Lake then take the scenic route from the tour to Traverse City and then up to the Tunnel of Trees before heading back home on Monday!

Thirdgen89GTA Hmmm, this could be fun. If only not so far away.

Eagle Most drones can only do 25-30mph. Most can also track their remote, but its sometimes tough to do when you have changing terrain and obstacles.

DEEZUZ I've always wanted one that could track and take it to the Badlands and ride and have it record a session
09-21-2017 03:53 PM
DEEZUZ Can yours follow the cars?
09-21-2017 01:58 PM
Eagle I wanted to bring mine along, but it was having technical difficulties. Maybe I'll make it happen next year.

Thirdgen89GTA I think we need a TCG Official Drone on next years tour. I can imagine some pretty badass shots we could get of the cars.

Vogz Sooo, finally had time to wash my car this afternoon. Only downside to the kind of driving/high speed passing we did is the front end of my car looks and feels like it got sand blasted. If I'm able to make it next year, I'll be putting some kind of paint protection on the front end. Might need a bumper cover re-spray before that...
09-14-2017 08:30 PM
DEEZUZ sooo I truly cant believe this is already done and over. It went by entirely too fast. Maybe it seems that way cause I was extremely butt puckered the entire time worrying about breakage.

The smaller group was easy to manage but a few more cars would be good. I really feel like the sweet spot is about 20 cars. This allows 2 packs when necessary which is nice for flexibility.

Always good to see new faces but Heather and I enjoy reconnecting with the TCGTour alumni, especially those that have been on all 3.

Hats off to Alex for getting that car built and having no major issues. You are obviously more than just a diesel brother.

Thanks to Dan and Jared for navigating pretty much the whole trip. Its a thankless job and you embraced it. Watching that truck blast all weekend was amazing. And Jared I'm glad you were at the front all weekend becuase when I was following you at the end my GTO never felt so slow. lol

As mentioned by Mook thanks to 007Jack for making this site happen and not taking down the TCG Tour banner yet... I actually like the reverse reminder. (edit, its now gone)

I'm glad Carter and Bill didn't have real issues when their cars started doing goofy things.

Welcome to the cult Porsche guys (James and Brian), make sure you come back next year!

Nick, glad you were able to make a short trip with us, hopefully you can get that camaro going for 18.

Dick Rago, thanks for the entertainment as always. Bring the car next year?

FireballDan... Is there a nicer guy on tour? Serious comment. Always good spending a weekend with you

Nick and Colleen did a great job coordinating mid pack as Mike pointed out. Always good with the radio and making phone calls. Thanks for taking care of that

Tom we didn't see enough of the Dyson, but that car still amazes me every time. Well done.

Megan, thanks for not dying from Carter's farts. That would have been terrible... Glad to have the two of you back on the tour this year.

Joe... Another great route. Honestly we can't tell you enough how much we appreciate what you do. You were mentioned so many times on the radio! I look forward to having you back there next year.

Thanks to Mike for making this place possible. You should be proud of what we have here and just accept it for what it is. Like you said we have a core group that will always go and that is all we need to have a good time. TCG Tour doesn't need to be Power Tour with the whole site going.

I think most or all of the people on tour want to help with the tour. My reply is do it. I am not on the site as much as I used to be but I made time to do shirts and stickers because I view them as an essential part of the tour. Everyone can make some time to help in some way shape or form.

Thanks to everyone. Heather and I both really enjoy this trip each year and want it to keep going for years to come.

I really hope that was everyone.....

Well said John!

I am very humble by your complement!
You and heather have always been a pleasure to socialize with along with all the other fellow TCG Members!


This past weekend has been phenomenal. It good to see all the familiar faces, and meeting new ones. @Vogz & @shockerracing.com

Big Kudos to @CTC DEEZUL for making a 44 day build become a success!!

wombat I can write a novel on the tours so far, they've been incredible all the way through, even with the hiccups (they make the tour, all things considered). I'm going to keep it short and sweet.

Everyone that has been on these is awesome. I've never seen a random group of people (albeit most of us know each other) connect so well for the few days we're together, it feels more of a family than a friendship. I look forward to 2018, as well as 2019 and so on, I'll be at every one if life permits.

PS. Alex @CTC DEEZUL, I'm jealous as fuck of your car. @Eagle, I'm pretty sure you threw that 9k pig around corners better than your vette .
09-13-2017 11:03 AM
SleeperLS My only regret about moving out west was not being able to participate in the tour anymore. I am glad you guys are still keeping it going strong. I still am impressed that Alex finished his car in time, and it sounds like it was rock solid.
09-13-2017 10:46 AM
Smokinhot Very well said John! It's bugged me that I haven't made it the past two tours, aside from seeing you guys off. Between last year's accident and busy year this year, I will definitely be busting ass next year to get my Camaro done. I'm done with making excuses about why it's not done already or when I'll start... I've dreamt about driving that car on trips, solely like what we've been doing past 3 years, for so long.

Seriously, this is what I like best about this site. When it comes to getting a group together and have fun. I too haven't been as active as much do to hours or location (which I plan to move closer to bumfuck Indiana like Alex), but I'll always make time for shenanigans with you peeps.

P.s. - I want to say THANK YOU to Angela and Paul again. As last year after our accident, she offered one of their vehicles for us to take on the tour. Just couldn't swing it after being out of work 3 months. It really meant a lot.

DEEZUZ Great read John.

I still have not digested. I've got about half a dozen outside of here still asking how the car was and such. This was def not a solo task. Many hands in making this possible

It really is an amazing road trip car! But I'm also used to pulling a car trailer across the country in my truck, so being able to travel in the Cayman is always a treat.

shockerracing.com Oh yeah, and an early start is fine the first day but after hotel party nights even 9am is pushing it!

I do like the idea of driving further away the first day and then planning activities from there.
that's so awesome that that car is that comfortable.
