At the Track The Texas Mile March 19th and 20th

It's time to start getting ready again for the Texas Mile. I heard the owner of the event bought an Sti, That's Subie love. I know myself, Hotrod Guru, The Ripler are going. I'm hoping SOD will send a car down.
It's always a fun weekend and they like us being there.
You can get more info @ www.texasmile.com
The first race weekend is March 19th and 20th 2005. It should be cool outside and our cars should be faster.
I'm looking at hitting 155mph this time around.
We will stay at the Best Western in Beeville, about 8 miles from the track.
Post up if your intrested.

I have some questions.
How should I lower it, springs are or go for the all the way around w/new struts?
The cost of putting in just springs is more then dropping in struts.

No holes in the bumpers, I thought about a front air damm. No interior.

I need new tires, I need advice I have SSR lightweights. I want something that I can run fast on and still drive everyday.

Cost for the event, $180.00 I think. Worth every dime.

if you just want to lower the car, just get springs, but for every day enjoyment I'd say get kyb agx struts and STi or prodrive springs

why don't you buy an extra bumper, drill holes and leave it unpainted? then you can use it just for this event...

and for tires... kumho MX are a good mix between performance and still tame on the street... you won't get a ton of miles from them though...

How much? I want to go economical with whatever I do.
How hard is it to take a bumper off? I would like to make one just for this event.

how much for what?

KYB AGX $500 for all 4 corners
STi or Prodrive Springs ~$300
Kumho MX vary depending on size...
No clue on a bumper or how hard it is to remove... but I would guess it wouldn't be too bad for once a year...

That is just to drive and for safety crew! The hotel and food is extra. Figure around $300.00 for the weekend.

It looks like the entry is $145 if you get it in at least 7 days before the event, or $175 the week of the event. I was hoping they wouldn't raise the price that much. Maybe H.K.Phoey was adding in the price of a couple of T-shirts.

Coming down from Dallas, I usually spend ~$100-120 on fuel (pump and race gas), ~$50 on ice, ~$100 on hotel, then food, and assundry other things. (like get glilly to cut some pimp vinyl) So, it can easily be upwards of $400. Of course, you don't have to buy the ice, or spend $5-6/gal on race gas. So, it can be done cheaper.

I wouldn't mind splitting a room (smoking), if someone wanted to save a few bucks, BTW.
