I talked to you about this on the phone this morning, I will see what I can work out. I really just don't want to put my track pads back in, man that was a PITA.

For everyone else, this is a great chance to get some track time. 65 bucks gets you about 1-1.5 hours of track time.

Brad on the facebook thing, you shouldn't have gotten caught, so your fault... And I can't go to the track because I have finals that day. When is the next time the topeka track is open to the public? And are you guys going to be up for going? Brad we need to start working on that project when I get back, like 2 weeks left. I also still need to do my inspection 2. What is the one thing you can't do yourself?

Heartland Parks upcoming schedule looks like this.

May 12 - Not attending
June 16 - Attending
July 7 - Attending
July 21 - Attending
August 1 - Attending

The only thing for the inspection 2 that we will not be able to do ourselves is the valve adjustment which isn't cheap. Baron charges like 800 bucks for it.

A couple months back we got a group of guys together and had an indy shop in Shawnee (one of Kevins buddies) do about 5 M3's. He gave us a great group rate but that's because Kevin rented the shim kit and special BMW tool. I know the shop owner talked about buying a shim kit but I'm not sure if he ever did. I will call him on Monday and ask what he can do, the more people you can get to confirm getting it done at one time the better the price.

Other than that I would just by the Turner kit, it keeps everything together so you don't forget about anything.

I was hoping you would chime in Kev. I wasn't sure what models required the valve job.

Jacob - buy the kit from turner, it should include everything you need.

Im saying screw turner, ill get like 70 bucks cheaper if I buy individually. I can help with the clutch if you tell me what to do. If you have the DIY it should be pretty easy to walk through. Hey are you guys up for meeting up Sunday the 16th if its a nice day. I would like to hang out and maybe go for a drive if its good weather. Meet for lunch then go driving? I know the BMW club does it brad, but why not get everyone else together too. And panara is for old people and women...

You never know what Panera is like if you have never been and Iím not apposed to doing things outside of the club seeing Iíve met up with you and Ryan a couple of times. Iím down for whatever whenever as long as Iím not playing ball.

I use Turner cause they give me good prices when I call because I have an account and have spent so much damn money there.

Yup that was me, I remember you. One asain drove the AW and the other deove the tech violet. Speaking of them they have been kinda MIA as of late.

I'll be out at Heartland June 16th, you should stop by and say what's up.

I have been to panera, the girlfriend drags me there. Nothing I really like there. I have even tried and nothing really worked for me. I will see what I can do about a discount from turner.

I meant you've never been there for a club get-to-gether.

I've got my hand in some things right now that may free up a little more cash, so I'll let you know on the exhaust.
