Hey Cody, I just saw that you work with Musser, crazy!

It seems like I always half way run into that guy. We both raced karts out at NTK, but never in the same class; we both did the FSAE stuff at school, but for different schools; and now you work for him... ok that last one is a stretch, but anyhow, pretty cool.

I'll be at the alabama race this weekend, I'll keep an eye out for you guys.

Uh, negative on Barber. Our customer driver ran into some "issues". (google Daniel Orr in florida) and we had to withdraw from this one. You've got my number, come by the shop some time and check it out, we could use another local guy on the crew.

Plus the cars arent competitive yet, GrandAm has given us the slow boat on parts to keep the chassis from working correctly, plus we are down on power to everybody in the class. So, we are kinda protesting this one too. Stuff should be sorted for VIR or at least LimeRock.

ooooh no, you're not the first person who's tried to trick me into a lemons car.

That right there is a recipe for a LOT of work; for a little bit of driving; in a slow car; that doesn't handle well; with a bunch of yahoo's who couldn't drive PRIOR to 36 hours of no sleep.

No thanks.

But it's just a CRX.

And we have a full set of 6" Vogtland springs, scales/setup pad/strings, dyno....

oh, and keys to MSR and Eagle's Canyon. What could POSSIBLY go wrong?

Daniel, who has earned two degrees and is a partner in Rendorseg Motors brokering cars out of Oklahoma, enjoys travel, spending time with friends, and going to the beach.

None of which are in his immenant future, it seems...

Hey all.. I've browsed through the posts for a while, but never posted. I just picked up a big orange tire shredding machine and was hoping to meet up with some people familiar with the western DFW area that wouldn't mind having me tag along on some dual sport rides... do you ever have any organized meet ups or anything?

The best way to get to know us is to come to one of our meets (you don't have to ride there, but it's prefered).

CodyY is the one to meet about orange juice and DS'ing.

Dunno when the next one is.

Well, I could always trailer it to a meet. That seems a little excessive, though.

We do, and they're normally posted up in here like so:

DFW GTG: 4th of Whenever 7:00PM

There isn't one set at the moment, but anyone can post up.

Whereabouts in Weatherford are you? I'm right downtown next to the CVS Pharmacy.
